The buckle stop tab on my driver's seatbelt somehow broke and came out. I really had no idea it would be such a pain, but I'm tired of digging around trying to find the buckle down under my ***.

GM Parts Direct wants nearly $20 including shipping for that little plastic thing!!!!

PN is 12453517, does anybody have any ideas to get it cheaper? $10.95 S&H is ridiculous.

How about making something yourself? A nut/washer/bolt would do the trick just fine. Might look a little ghetto but not that bad. I'm sure there's something else you could use that wouldn't look so bad.

Yeah I thought about that, but just figured it would look horrible.

We used a couple of buttons from the fabric department at WalMart. Matched the color to the belt, and sewed it on with the heaviest matching thread we could find. If you don't look too close, it looks like it was meant to be there. $2

Hmmmmmm

I, as well need the "stopper".
Will be visiting the Toyota dealer on Thursday.

I thought about using a small fender washer and my rivet tool. Once I trim off the excess center part, the rivet would come loose so I scratched that thought for the moment.

Umm, just go to a dealer and buy it? List price is $15. That's cheaper.

So are we talking about the little plastic button thing on the belt?

I had the same problem with the seat belt stops in my Suburban...both front belt stops broke and fell off.

I noted that the same part is available from Toyota that is almost identical. It cost $2.04 per side, and was in stock at a local Toyota Dealer. I bought four (4) sets for a bit over $8 plus tax. Problem solved ( you do need something to install that will melt the little center pin. I used a small solder iron for mine - worked great.)


Good luck.
