Seat belt buckle

How do you replace a seat belt buckle? My drivers seat belt buckle disintigrated in my hand the other day and I want to switch buckles with the center buckle that I don't use. I can't seem to get the fastener loose with the allen key. Have tried WD 40 to loosen it but that isn't working. Is there something I am not doing that I should. Is there another fastener I don't know about? n you advise mme please? Thank you

Soak it soak it and soak it....... may take a few days.... If nothing works, get a hair dryer and heat it up warm to the touch..... melt wax all over the quite warm bolt unit and let sit overnight.... as it cools it will draw the wax down along the threads

Seat belt sensor goes on and off as your driving with all seat belts on


Look for garbage in the drivers seat buckle.

Make sure there is no heavy weight in the passenger seat.

You likely need a seat buckle, but could be wiring.

Air bag light flashes 5 times then 1 time


That flashing indicates fault code 51. Fault code 51 indicates a problem with the driver's seat belt circuit. The seat belt buckle has a switch in it to determine if the belt is buckled up when the seat is occupied [determined by a pressure sensor in the seat bottom]. The switch in the buckle is either bad or the wiring to the switch is either short or open circuited.
Use of a computer scan tool can help narrow down the problem. There are four different scan tool fault codes relating to code 51. They are B2432, B2433, B2434 & B2435. These codes will give you more defined information on the actual fault. Most common faults are either a bad switch in the seat belt buckle or damaged wiring to that switch. Damaged wiring is usually caused by the driver placing objects under the driver's seat, which damage the wiring coming out of the seat belt. It is also possible to have a bad seat belt computer [Restraints Control Module or RCM]. A bad RCM is not common. Check for damage to the seat belt wiring under the driver's seat. Best to remove the seat and lift up the carpeting to do this. If no physical damage or water corrosion damage is present, replace the seat belt. After repairs, disconnect the battery for 1 minute to clear the fault code from the RCM's memory.

How do i disconnect seatbelt chime mitsubishi mirage


On many cars, the seat belt sensor is also used to trigger the airbag. Investigate whether this is the case on your car before doing anything drastic to your seat belt alarm.Locate the wire under the driver seat that connects to the buckle with the release button. It should be towards the rear on the right hand side, where you plug the belt into.Follow the wire to an area under the seat where you will be able to fit your hands into.Look for two wires running together. Cut through both of them and slightly separate the ends apart.Use electrical tape to cover the wire ends so they do not short out on each other or metal under the seat.Tuck the wires away from the seat brackets so they do not get tangled if you move your seat.OR>>>>

On the side of the receptacle (where you would slide the buckle into) are two non-tamper torx screws.
Remove the screws using a hollow T10 bit.Carefully remove the plastic side cover. It contains a spring loaded slide switch.Remove the small spring and slide the switch down to its lowermost position.You can double check by watching the seat belt light on the dash go out.Replace the plastic cover and screws.Store the small spring for use in the future. This way the system thinks the buckle is always in so the light and chime won't alert at all.

Broken seat belt buckle


If I had the problem I would look at a junkyard or on line at e-bay for a replacement. You will need to get the buckle and the belt that it is attached to that goes down to the floor down through the crack in the seat.
Remember the buckle receiver is made for the certain belt in the front and rear seats. I have often tried to put the wrong belt in a buckle and it would not fit. ( Example: the right belt goes in the right buckle.)
Be blessed.

Drivers seat belt releases spontaniouly


If your drivers seat belt is releasing spontaneously, I would suggest that you replace the seat belt buckle mechanism immediately because, if confronted with an emergency situation, someone could be endanger, like the driver of this vehicle. If you not under warranty, go to salvage yard and find your vehicle and find the seat belt buckle mechanism to replace your current one.

The warning bell starts immediately and will not shut off when the key is in the ignition even though all seat belts are done up and all doors are closed


I'm an out dated mechanic, but i believe the drivers seat belt assembly is the only assembly that has a switch to indicate if the lap belt is buckled. I'm not positive on that. The switch in the buckle (the part with the release switch on it) may be defective. To figure out if the switch is defective shouldn't be to hard. Inspect the buckle to find the wire or wires going to it, should be two wires. You may have to unbolt the buckle from the floor or seat to find the wires. Follow the wire(s) till you find the connector, the connector maybe tucked under the carpet. Disconnect the it and use a small piece of wire to jumper the connector, not the connector that goes to the buckle, the other connector. If the bell sound goes away, the buckle needs to be replaced.
