    Hey guys
    Well I think this has actually been going on pretty much since I got the truck, but whenever the passenger seat is empty and I'm driving with the windows down, the front passenger seatbelt persistently knocks against the interior of the door, loudly. Not just at certain times when it catches the wind, but I'd say about 70% of the time. I tried pulling it out and tightening it, moving it around, today I just got pissed and buckled it (obviously it stopped). I was just curious if anyone else had this issue, or maybe I'm the only one OCD enough for it to bother this much. :confused:

    Have not tried it but would velcro work? I think people have done that for the back seat belts in the access cab.

    One of the guys on here put some felt or some padding behind the buckle to stop the noise....

    My pass seatbelt buckle rattles against the inside door molding so I just keep mine engaged even when no one is in the pass seat.

    The rear seat belts in my double cab rattle around like crazy if they are not put back into the clips. Once they are in the clips its fine.

    Never noticed the front seatbelt, maybe i will now.

    My rear ones on my double cab also do it. Either buckle them in or get some of those cheap seat belt pads from Wal-Mart. The gray ones should match okay.

    The rear ones in my AC rattled no matter what and after week of dealing with it they've been buckled ever since.

    You hate going to Walmart b/c you don't want them to have your money?

    That's okay I don't shop there anymore either since they closed ours.

    Glad I'm not the only one that gets bothered by this. I've thought about getting a small pad to put behind it, but I've been too lazy to do it. Some day it'll happen...
