View Full Version : Annoying chirping noise coming from the seat belt

Like the title states, I've been having an annoying chirping sound coming from the seat belt where it comes from above (B pillar? I don't know my pillars). It has been doing it for a while now on the front drivers side and now has recently started chirping on the rear driver side. It is most definitely coming from the seatbelt assembly since my ear is right next to it while I'm driving. I'm wondering if anyone else has ever had this issue and how they fixed it? If not, is it hard to take apart that assembly to try to find the chirp myself?

That cover is nearly impossible to remove without damaging it.

If I was to guess pull the surrounding trim then work that piece out. Either that or frequently drop worms to stop the chirping.

I've done it on my facelift 99 b5 and never broke it. Not sure what you have.

My first go to would be pulling the seat belt out and spraying the sheet out of it with wd40.

you do realize the retract module is down by your ass right? I've never heard of chirping problems with b pillars, but I'm just a simple man with simple pleasures.

all i can say is be careful as the seat belt cartridge is wired into the car with a gas charge to seize the belt in the event of an accident, so you may not want to just haul off and start screwing with it
