F-250 4WD 8-cyl Diesel

My drivers side seatbelt has started to randomly unbuckle. There isn't anything touching it, pressing it or otherwise interfering with the operation. I firmly press the buckle into the receptacle, pull on it to ensure it is latched and randomly it will come undone. The dealership said there isn't a recall or warranty to cover it so I had to purchase a new receptacle. This has happened going as slow as 5mph and as fast as 50mph and is quite startling as the seatbelt instantly starts to rewind. I don't feel comfortable driving my truck knowing the seatbelt might not hold if an accident were to happen.

Drivers seat belt keeps coming unlatched for no reason while driving. Nothing is stuck inside. I latch it and tug hard to make sure fully latched. Then after a few minutes of driving, it releases for no reason. My best friends 2006 F250 also has the same problem.

On several occasions, without any reason, my driver-side seat belt has unbuckled itself while the vehicle is moving (speed does not seem to be a factor). After experiencing this a few times I began inserting the buckle and jiggling it and pulling it to make sure it locked firmly before driving. Even after having done this, there have still been times when it unbuckled itself while driving. If I get into in an accident the seat belt may not offer any restraint/protection.

At random intervals, with no provocation, my seat belt will unclick itself. After I re-buckle, tugging on it will not cause it to release. However this has now happened four times since I bought the vehicle 3 months ago.
