Front Seat Belt Replacement Warranty Policy
(Supersedes 92-020, dated March 16, 1992)
Warranty policy for front seat belt replacement is to replace either the belt/retractor mechanism or the buckle when either does not work properly. Warranty covers the replacement of only the failed half of a belt, not the entire assembly (see PARTS INFORMATION).
Front seat belts are made by several suppliers, and some are sold as individual components (two separate halves); they are not stocked as a complete set. Therefore, whenever you replace a belt, make sure the new belt half is the same type and from the same manufacturer as the original - otherwise, the belt may not buckle properly.
To determine the manufacturer and type (or "model") of the belt, look for the white tag on the original belt in the car. The tag is on the retractor side of the belt (visible at the lower attachment point), or on the belt if you pull the belt all the way out.
From the tag, mark down the manufacturer's name (either Nippon Seiko K.K. or Takata), the belt "model" number, and the date of manufacture.
If the tag is missing or illegible, look on the buckle half of the belt for the name Nippon Seiko K.K. or the stylized "T" mark for Takata.
NOTE: Some seat belts may have NSK Warner K.K. as the manufacturer's name. Use Nippon Seiko K.K. belts as the replacement.
Take the information to your Parts Department to order the proper replacement belt.
