Ok i'm going to get it for this but....I was drinking pink lemonade inside my Legend:( :eek: and it spilled on myself, my seat, and the seatbelt. Now the seatbealt doesn't lock up, it will sometimes, but as I'm driving it will unlock. Can I fix this myself, maybe spraying some windex or something or should I take it somewhere? Isn't the dealer supposed to replace or fix the seatbelts for free!!??

Hi Buddy.

look at Koji´s homepage... http://www.legendtuner.com/

choose "REPAIRS"
then "SEAT BELTS"

Hope this helps :confused:

Just had the same problem with the RT belt on my coupe. Dealer replaced it under warranty.

Yes, seatbelts are a lifetime warranty item. And that's lifetime of the car, not the original owner. Any time there's a seatbelt problem, just go to a dealer and insist that they fix it. It doesn't cost them anything, since Acura corporate picks up the tab on those things.

Yes, all safety components are free for life, with the exception of [the SRS] which is covered for 10 years from the manufacturing date of the vehicle.

Safety components which includes seatbelt cables, seatbelt locking mechanisms, seatbelt extenders, seatbelt buckles, seatbelt locking, etc. One thing to note in our Legends, especially in the coupe, is the use of that automatic mechanisms that places the seatbelt closer to you, that is NOT under lifetime warranty since you can pull that manually, if it breaks and it doesn't serve to prevent or cause any more or less fatal injury to you.

My mistake. After re-reading what I wrote, I updated the message. I was referring to the SRS system, not the ABS system. Funny thing is I was talking to a friend about the ABS system while typing that message. My duh! :eek:

actually, the SRS system also has a lifetime warranty if it wasn't tampered with, and if all related parts were inspected and replaced if necessary after accidents :)

Fixed it without going to the dealer. I just sprayed it with some windex, let it soak for a while and then no more sticky lock. Thanks for the info though, if for some reason it stops working then I know where to take it.

Yeah, I did those temp solutions on my old Prelude before. On the Prelude, it tends to be slow, since the entire belt assembly resides on the door, you know that anchor part, it becomes dirty over time and slows down the retraction, so the lady told me to just clean it using Isopropyl Alcohol and it worked great for 2 weeks before it began slowing down again. Give it a shot and if it doesn't work well, then just take it to the dealer.
