The two side seat belts for the rear passengers will not tighten back up. Lexus dealership will charge $645 to replace both. Is there a less expensive simpler way to replace these?

Isn't this a safety issue? When I had my Honda, they replaced the seatbelts for free when they were not working correctly.

I need instructions for replacing the seat belts in my Honda Element Ex 2008 both front and back ones They've all been chewed by a lunatic dog that I own!


There is a replacement guarantee in place wherein Honda states that they will repair or replace your stock Honda seat belts for the "usable life" of the vehicle.

The "usable life" portion of the agreement establishes some requirements that have to be met and are listed here:

1. Vehicle has a current registration & insurance (Under Federal,
State, Local Laws)
2. Legally titled within the USA or Canada (Honda North America)
3. Never been totaled by insurance or Federal/State/Local standards
4. Never had an airbag deployment / isn't throwing a code for the
SRS system

This warranty is separate from all other factory warranties for the car. So, you car does not have to be under it's 3/36,000 or other factory equivalent. It is warrantied directly through Honda and not a third party company. Any Honda dealership within North America is required to replace or repair the belts free of charge. There should be no charge to you for inspection or replacement costs.

I have read reports about some dealerships attempting to charge a fee for the "diagnostic" process to determine if the seat belt is indeed malfunctioning. However under this warranty Honda does not allow the dealership to do this. So, you just have to stick to your guns and the dealership will not end up charging you anything.

They don't cover seat belts which have been:
1. Cut, Shredded, Frayed by long term physical contact with sharp objects such as knives or belt buckles
2. Altered beyond factory specification
3. Altered from factory locations
4. Frayed by rubbing against interior trim pieces
5. Damaged by altered interior panels
6. Impeded upon by non-factory interior installations

They will cover the seat belt replacement even if you have taken your inside trim apart so long as you haven't modified the seat belt or the trim surrounding the seat belt.

There is no reason that this request for repair cannot be 100% successful. The warranty is very simple and clearly stated. The key...meet the requirements.

How do i take apart my seatbelt assembly? passenger side belt is stuck in


since it's a safety item it's highly recommend against any type of service.. if you can get the assembly out from behind the trim panel or under the back seat if it's the rear...remove the side that has the belt wound up and the gear showing. More then likely the pin and weight have gotten caught in place and the belt tightened up without any slack to let the pin release. this pin falls into place when the brakes are applied and inertia set the pin in place to stop the seat belt from unwinding. wind the belt in the tightening direction, pull pin out of gear mechanism and reinstall....best bet would be buy new

you can remove the bolt that holds the seatbelt to the floor by pulling off the seatpad where the belt goes to the floor and then raise the seat and the belt should reset. this happens on my passenger side rear seat.
