    Passenger seatbelt problem...

    Guys,
    I have a problem. My girlfriend is constantly bugging me about the passenger seatbelt being to tight. It appears that the buckle locks once the seatbelt is attached to the clip and there is no give on the actual seatbelt. She has to constantly disconnect and reconnect the belt to get comfortable.

    This is bugging her and makes her uncomforatble (I dont blame her). This is ONLY on the passenger seatbelt because the buckle is a bit different than the driver buckle.
    Most of us probably have not experienced this problem first hand (we are usually driving), but have any of your "significant others" complained about this?

    Most importantly, does anyone know a fix for this?

    Re: Passenger seatbelt problem...

    The passenger and rear belts are made to secure a carseat. If you pull it all the way out, the belt will lock in whatever position it retracts to. You must let it retract all the way to cancel the ratcheting. If you don't releach the ratchet, it will get progressively tighter everytime you move. This is a common problem if a passenger is, ahem, large or if they routinely pull the belt out too far or twist their body around and away from the seat as they buckle up.

    Ironically, my girl was complaining about the exact same thing today. I told her MY seatbelt has give, but she seemed to be having problems (who woulda thought hers was different than mine). She did say that after a little jimmying with the belt it did give, I think. I'll ask her tomorrow when I talk to her.

    Incidentally, you aren't supposed to put a car seat in the passenger anyways, from what I am told - I guess due to the airbag...? As far as I was aware (heard from various moms) your kids are supposed to ride in the back for quite some time.

    Call me a liar. I just went out to the garage and couldn't get any of the seatbelts on my CTS to ratchet. The passenger seat on the vette does it, but not the CTS. Maybe with the CTS it only occurs when the vehicle is running and / or in gear.
