I just picked up my '23 Sierra. While looking around, I noticed the front seatbelt attachment appear to be installed backwards. It seems to me the felt should be facing the pillar trim to prevent rattling. Both sides are the same.

That is the correct way.  Felt pad on the seat side.  Same 2019-current. 


The cable and the body coming out of the floor trim, that is part of the seatbelt anchor pretensioner.  You can't install those on opposite sides, they are side specific and only attaches one way. 


Here is a picture of the right hand side anchor pretensioner.  Notice the door side of it has no felt:

And here is the other side of that cap where the belt comes out of.

If its causing you a rattle, get a square of felt like that and stick it on the other side.

No rattles noticed, just counterintuitive.


Thanks for the quick reply. I guess I won't be heading to the dealer!

I believe, but can't confirm, the felt is on that side is to help prevent scuffs and scratches from when the seat is moved forward and backward.
