    Hi TW!

    I'm having trouble locating a blue grey passenger side seatbelt for my 97 2.4L with a bench seat (as seen circled in the pic).

    Here is what I found so far:

    https://www.ebay.com/itm/TOYOTA-OEM-95-97-Tacoma-Front-Seat-Belt-Buckle-Right-7323004050B0/232304115984


    https://www.ebay.com/itm/Genuine-Toyota-Tacoma-Buckle-73240-04050-B0/282568961399
    (i think it's the right part, only tan)

    Any help would be appreciated, Thanks!

    I'm not sure how Toyota works, but im a Honda mechanic and our seat belt buckles and seatbelt retractors are lifetime warranty. Try calling up your local dealer to find out and see if Toyota is the same way or not. Might save you some hassle and some money. It also depends on what is failing. Is it not latching the belt in?

    Yeah - it'll release the belt randomly, which makes my passengers uncomfortable for some reason :p. That's a great idea - some googling showed that they originally warranted them for 5 years. Probably why you see so many saggy seatbelt retractors in the first gens nowadays.
