    Stupidest Part Question Ever: Seat Belt Stop Button

    I called my dealer, a few parts stores, etc. I cannot find a replacement seat belt button stop for a reasonable place... or maybe $15 is reasonable for a plastic pin. Basically, my wife has been reaching to the floor to pick up the seat belt buckle for months. I get the car back (finally) and it's frustrating the heck out of me. All that is missing is that little plastic button on the belt that keeps the buckle from sliding down.

    Any idea where to pick up a < $10 replacement?

    Search www.car-part.com for a local junk yard and give them a call.

    If you can't find one, use a diaper safety pin. It will hold your belt buckle in place and not cause a problem when the seat belt is in use.

    Funny I had the same issue....lived with it for MONTHS.

    I got so used to it over the months that once it was fixed I kept grabbing down to the floor for the buckle. Took few weeks to adjust back to "normal".

    You can buy the buttons at any auto parts store for a couple bucks. Checkers has them under their HELP! brand. Usually on a card, in a display with a bunch of other little things.
