Something many of you may not know:

Your seat belts have a lifetime warranty from Acura.

So if your seat belt needs a little help taking up the play, take it to the dealer. If the shoulder harness doesn't pull up snug across your chest like it should, take it to the dealer. If the belt latch doesn't always catch or release properly, take it to the dealer. It doesn't make sense to drive with seat belts that don't work properly. Take them in for free repairs. The life you save may be your own.

usually "lifetime warranties" are like: bring in the car, and they'll fix it....

wouldnt matter who owned the car or what year it was.. the piece is covered for the lifetime of the car

thats what i would think anyways

I first learned of it with my '81 Accord. The seat belt had stopped retracting and, as the car was out of warranty, I bought a used mechanism from a salvage yard. I happened to mention it the next time I had the car in for scheduled maintenance and the technician told me that I should have brought it in as they warrant the seat belts for life.

I was looking at the window sticker from my new RSX and saw that it stated the lifetime warranty on seat belts. That prompted my post. I just checked the image of the sticker from my former '98 GS-R and it said the same thing:

This might be a Federal regulation. My '92 Sentra had those automatic seatbelts - lots of potential for mechanical failure. They had a lifetime warranty too.

sorry for resurrecting an old post, but just wondering if anyone actually had this done, cause my drivers side seatbelt doesn't retract and it pisses me off
