How to repair seat belts that are torn?

Recommended Posts

I'm guessing loose seat belts got caught in doors too many times because two of them are cut part way through and horribly frayed. They can't be safe, but can you get new ones installed and if so how much is it? Anyone gone through this? Thanks!

Why do I feel like my uncle told me it was unlawful to repair a broken seatbelt? (he's a mechanic/inspector).

 

Perhaps I am mistaken? Anyone know for sure?

 

Or, maybe that's for self-repair.

 

Perhaps check with the dealer?

It depends on the make/model etc. The cost can vary a lot from less than a $100.00 to a couple hundred depending on the cost of the seat belt and the cost of labor.

 

We were looking to buy a van that needed 2 seat belts replaced. They cost of having them replaced was about $250.00 but that was with discounted labor. So it could be more.

 

I think it's something you have to have done by a dealer but maybe not.

Just call your local dealer and ask them.

My husband has replaced broken seat belts. He went down to the junkyard, pulled them out and installed them. They work great. And really easy to do.

 

Some cars are designed for the seatbelt to lock in a crash. They have to be reset.

I'd rather get them from a parts store and do it ourselves than pay someone mega bucks. As long as it's safe, that is. I will check into that first. Thanks!

Check the warranty first. I had to replace a seat belt in my Camry. Several places told me that some seat belts come with a life time warranty. Toyota's of course did not!

 

Blessings,
