Default Seat Belt Failure

My drivers side seat belt broke about two weeks ago. The release button would not work at all. It would not catch the shoulder harness when inserted. A rather expensive part from GM. First time I ever experienced a seat belt failure.

at least the failure wasnt it coming unlatched if you slammed on the brakes. that could be a lot worse than spending a few bucks for a new part.

Mine failed.

Latch wouldn't latch on the driver'* side. Easy fix, trip to the junkyard, and all better

Thanks for the offer but I had the belt installed at a local dealership. I would have ordered it from GMPD but I needed it for a road trip I was going on the next day.
GM part# 12398072. Check out the price.
