: I am in the middle of a battle with Reeve's BMW in Tampa regarding the passenger side seatbelt. They are trying to tell me that the part#, that I supplied them with as a replacement, was the original part # for the car. I have a '99 2.3 and gave the the # that I got off of the forum. They are refusing to do anything about it and as most people are reporting, my passengers are refusing to "buckle up" because it is VERY uncomfortable. Any body got any suggestions?
I had the same complaint about my 00 MZ3. When I gave them the seatbelt info they essentially told me that this belt was already in the car because of it's production date. They suggested that the aggressive tensioning of the belt had more to do with the seat position than anything else that they could control. I somewhat felt they were feeding me a line of BS, but after taking it into consideration and adjusting the seat as low as it will go, and as far back as it will go, it now seems to my wife that the belt behaves in an acceptable manner and doesn't tighten up like it did before.
