Seat Belt Tensioner?

Anyone try/conquer the drivers seat belt tensioner issue? My 07 has a lazy drivers belt.

You will need a complete new belt if it is not retracting properly. $208 at Tischer.

I just had both of mine replaced under warranty (43,000 miles). Had to wait three weeks while one was shipped from Germany.

Is that the seatbelt guide?

The complete assembly - belt, guide and recoil spring. Part #1 in this diagram.

If it's not retracting properly I would try to get it covered under warranty. The potential liability issues must be huge for failed seatbelts so I would imagine there is a chance the dealer would do it for free.

Thanks for the link Yorgi. I did find it and it comes in 2 colors Beige and Grey. Looks like about $182.00 from Tsicher.

I called the service adviser at my local dealer and they said it's not covered since the factory warranty is over. In the warranty data it is a lifetime warranty but only in Kansas. Go figure. I'll check with another dealer also JIC.

I looked at the TIS here so see how to replace it, and it looks a bit intimidating. Is this something I need to have a dealer do? Those torque adjustments are not something I am too comfortable with.

Wow, those instructions are complex. The TIS is usually a brief summary compared to the actual work required. Based on that, I would recommend taking it to an indie or dealer.

On the list of car repairs that you don't want to screw up, seatbelts is right up there with brakes and tightening wheel bolts.

Yea, that's what I thought.
Thanks.

I think buying a new seatbelt receptacle is overkill for a coin. Here is a thread with a few ideas on coin removal.

If you are willing to replace the part and the ideas from the other thread don't work, I would remove it and try banging it on a bench upside down which would definitely work.

The part you want is #15 in this diagram. Part # 72 11 9 119 552 for the passenger side.

Instructions on removing the receptacle.
