Seat Belt Repair

Passenger side seat belt failed. I have pulled the panel and removed the mechanism, and it is suffering from the rusty spring issue. New one on eBay $117, rebuild $49. Yea or nay on the rebuild?
Not eBay but oempartsquick.com

I bought an FJ with a bad seatbelt last year. Faced with a similar decision, I went with a new part from Toyota.

In short, I concluded that if and when the part failed, I would be driving and one of my loved ones would be sitting in the passenger’s seat. I would hate to wonder if it was my fault they got hurt.

Re: Seat Belt Repair

Just went to order on oepartsquick.com and they say they can't ship because of hazards materials. Any other choices besides local stealership.

Re: Seat Belt Repair

Well another vendor just canceled my order for a seat belt, stating it was haz mat and could not be shipped WHAT TH ****!!!!!!. Looks like I will be getting from local stealer, unless somebody has any info on where to order from. There is a local salvage yard that has an 07, but will probably have the same issues.
HOW THE **** DO DEALERS GET THEM SHIPPED????
End rant.

They pay hazardous materials fees and have a certification for shipping hazardous materials. When the airbag recall really got rolling and we were shipping them back we had to have someone in parts certified.

Just got back from ordering one from the dealer. It wasn't as bad as I imagined. $171 with 10% senior discount. The woman at the parts counter said they get it shipped directly from Toyota in haz mat trucks, and she is not qualified to ship them back. So we are driving around with haz mat materials in our trucks. Is it because they have an explosive cartridge in them that fire when in an accident?

Re: Seat Belt Repair

Here is a small write-up (in russian ) with pics about getting this spring fixed - https://www.drive2.ru/l/468133569273790725/

In short - disassemble, go through some sand-papering, assemble back. The pics make the job pretty obvious too.

Not by me, but I think I'll have to do it this summer on the '08.
