  3. If you were like me, it was not as simple as a fuse or breaker. You may need to check your wires coming from the switches on the door, specifically in the door jam. Due to age and wear, you may have a tear (mix-tape dropping soon). OR like mine, many torn wires.

Great to see it first hand. I’m thinking about not risking it and going with a service for my seat belt repair like this one https://www.safetyrestore.com/seat-belt-... .. its much more affordable than a dealership.. any experience with mail in services like this?

David Melnichuk: It appears that that service is in MA, and of course can deal with an issue if you have a part that you can send to them. I am in Seattle, and it’s a seat belt fold-over issue repeatedly interfering with good operation. safetyrestore doesn’t have nationwide branches, does it?
