Seatbelt track-bar under my seat
I should take a photo of this, but I'll describe it the best I can:
Under my driver'* seat, on the right side (closest to the center of the car), there is a metal bar that runs from the back to the front of the seat (under the seat). In back it is attached to the floor bolt that holds the seatbelt to the floor. The seat has a bracket over this bar that travels forward and back as the seat is moved forward or back. There'* a thing that looks like a giant rivet at the front of it. It might be a stop so the bracket doesn't slide off the front of the bar?
On my car, this metal bar is somewhat loose. It'* wobbly. You can reach under the seat and sort of bat it around a bit, and it'* not in there tight or anything, just a bit loose.
I showed it to my dealer today and told him I don't know what it is, it seems to be loose, and I don't know if that'* normal, or if it'* broken, or what. I asked them to have someone who knows what it is look at it and tell me if it'* okay or not. (I played stupid, because when it came to that thing, well let'* face it, I *am* stupid about it.)
They called me back later and said it'* a seat belt track-bar, that keeps the seat belt from getting tangled up when you move your seat forward or back, and it'* supposed to be just like it is -a bit loose. So they say it'* completely okay.
I have no reason not to believe them, but can anybody here confirm that they have the same thing or something similar? I have a 1997 SE with the giant motorized captain'* chair on the driver'* side, and the manually-adjusted, somewhat smaller passenger'* seat next to it. I don't have bucket seats, so if you fold up the center armrest it'* kind of like a big split couch up front, and it has a center seatbelt in between the driver and passenger seat. I realize not everyone has this, especially the SSEI folks.
Let me know!
