***Seat Belt Arm***

My seat belt "arm" or whatever it's called never gives the belt, I asked my dealer to change it and they said no problem.
I GET IT BACK AND THEY NEVER EVEN CHANGED THE ARM!!!
Should I go ask again?

Well, if they stated that they perform the service, and they didn't- then yes, go back and ask for the service to be performed. They simply could've forgotten it among other services that were being performed on your vehicle.

This has been covered a long time ago and numerous times. It is not the seat belt arm that is messed up or broken, it's actually the belt itself.

Here's a video in how to fix it, but I didn't do mines this way. All I did was fold my belts like a book and put a crease in the middle where the arm reaches out for it. My method fixed the problem for a good one month.

I don't there's a long term fix. I wonder if its possible to code it so the arm doesn't come out at all. It just looks stupid when it comes out and it serves no purpose. That would be my fix. Are you guys having that much difficulty getting the seat belt on your own?

Fortunately the fuse that controls the arms does not control anything else. I pulled it after 5 years of intermittent function and constant frustration. I should have done that a long time ago. I no longer have to wait to see if it will work "this time" and passengers don't says "WTF..." as MurderedBeemer says.

Cool video. haha, looks like a quick and simple fix. Not sure if it'll stay that way.
