Has anyone done a seat belt replacement. We need to have one or both 3rd row seat belt replaced. If you guessed our puppy chewed up the belts. From my initial search it will be about $300 per. Considering getting a junk yard part. I do not think it is a DYI job to re-belt, as the ends are sewn (bar tacked) to the ends. There is a company that you send in your dog chewed belt, reel/mounting ends and all and they will do the re-belting for about $100 each. Any have experience with this stuff.

Have you checked with your dealer for an under the safety warranty replacement? They might share some of the cost.

Replacing seat belts is easy - the hardest part will be removing any trim to get to the bolts.

Pulling the entire seat belt mechanism with the anchors is easy. Replacing the damaged belt within the spool and cutting/stitching the end anchor points is NOT.
I think it is easier to get a used set that does not have any damage. Trying to stitch a belt may not even be legal or safe.
