Seatbelt service opinions wanted
Not sure if this is the right area to post, but it seemed close enough.
2009 RB, standard cargo van seats. Passenger side safety belt locked up the other day. Would not pull out, could not finesse it or brute force it out. I need a functioning belt and they are covered for the first 60,000 miles, so I bit the bullet and called the dealer. In my case, this means driving to Jersey, dropping the van, taking a train back, then waiting a day or two. Not ideal, but it had to be done and it's under warranty.
Got there and the belt was working. I asked them what they thought and they were less than helpful. "Why leave it here?" was the general thought. I didn't want to take that train back, so I basically agreed with them. Got home and the belt was stuck again. This time, I finessed it to work again, but now, of course, I can't really trust it. Then, looking in the shop manual, it mentioned as an issue if the warning tone doesn't come on. So, I have two questions.
1. Is there a passenger side seatbelt warning tone on the standard vans? Mine has the power windows, cruise control and key fob options, but I honestly don't remember if it has that tone for the passenger.
2. Do you think I should just bring it back and tell them it's intermittent and I'd like them to look at it? I wish I could just have them replace the whole retractor/rachet system. I'm leaning towards this option, but I wanted to know what you all think.
