    I need to replace the drivers side seat belt in my 2003 Double Cab. I looked online but only found black ones for some reason. Are they hard to replace if I picked a new one up at the dealership? Someone said the dealer might just replace it for free because some manufacturers do that with seat belts but its a 03 with 150k on it.

    Check here for seat belts. Should be cheaper. It's pretty easy to get off, bolt on the floor and you have to take off the panel to get to the reel.

    I used to have a 91 Nissan pickup with around 150,000 miles and the seat belts would sometimes release by themselves. I went to the Nissan dealership to buy new seat belts and they told me there was a lifetime warranty on them. They installed all new seat belts and buckles for free.

    My sister has a 99 Toyota Camry and one of her buckle started acting up. She asked Toyota if there is a lifetime warranty on seat belts and they said there isn't.

    If I were you, I would ask a Toyota dealership if there is a lifetime warranty. If not, www.toyotapartsales.com usually has pretty good prices on oem parts.

    I figured it was as easy as a bolt or two but wasn't sure if there were any issues with the air bag system. Toyota told me I was SOL with my 97 and they wouldn't cover them but I'll give them a call on Monday.

    I found these two part numbers. I guess the grey interior is actually charcoal?

    95-04 Tacoma seat belts suck, all the Tacomas of these years I've ever seen with over like 150,000 miles on them have the driver/passenger seat belts sagging and hanging and you have to manually feed them back in to start, then they will roll back up like they should. It would be awesome to know if there is some kind of warranty on them. There should be, I honestly feel like mine might be next to useless if I really needed them...
