Passenger front seat belt does not work properly after attaching to proper seat connector seat belt locks up and no forward movement is allowed in non emergency situations. Seat belt must be detached as it is in a locked position. Upon unlocking belt returns to normal action. Belt must be reconnected and positioning must be retried sometimes requiring disconnection yey again. Belt was replaced at owners cost. Replacement belt has the same issues but not as frequently as original belt. Total cost to owner approx. $500 and not much improvement if any. I feel this can be a safety concern issue. Vehicle can be stationary or moving makes no difference.
