Seat Belt Height Adjusters
These slides on the B-pillars look idiot-simple to work, and yet both of mine appear to be stuck.
Recap: In other threads, I've mentioned how I had the rear parcel shelf replaced under warranty. To get it out, the dealer had to remove nearly all the rear interior trim, including the panels covering the B-pillars. In doing so, they messed up the little plastic buttons that hold the B-pillar trim on, so my service writer ordered replacements. When I went in for them to put in the new buttons, some dingbat banged too hard on the one on the driver's side, cracking the underlying plastic.
I don't know why any of that should matter, but for whatever reason, the seatbelt adjuster slides no longer work. I hold down the button and try to move them up or down, but no-go. Can't figure it out.
Why do I care? Well, another oddity is that now my seatbelt seems to rub the forward edge of the opening as I pull the belt forward to wear it. I can even see a little channel it's dug into the plastic. I don't remember feeling that resistance previously. I'm not particularly tall (6'1"), but I have a notion that there may be one more notch in height on the adjuster, and that if I could just raise it, the rubbing might stop. There's about an inch of plastic still showing on the slide--would that mean it's at the last notch, or might there be one more? I don't know. Frankly, I don't remember how it was before all of this started.
