AP: Well I think if I ever get an M3, I'm just gonna pull the fuse on this
nonsense. What a stupid design, this is worse than the cupholders in the
Sandro Anderlini: There are two problems in the seat belt extender: the weak spring and the L
shaped metal piece where the spring is attached.
The spring is so weak that the piece of metal can move easily towards the
end of the arm. If that piece of metal moves the belt retainer won't be
able to push the belt and will let it go. That piece of metal is weak too
and sometime it breaks near the point where the spring is attached.
Definitive fix: pull that piece of metal all the way back and lock it in
position with a small screw. Screw length should be about 7mm and the screw
must be cut flush with the inner surface of the piece of metal we want to
Once that piece of metal is held in place by the screw you can even remove
CraigyMonster: Hasn't happened on my M3 yet but good to know!! I love the little butler
that presents me with my belt.
moe fo sho: Thanks, worked for me :-)
eugenelgrong: What i do is i bend the belt into a U where the arm normally grabs it by in
a direction opposite of how the belt normally bends over the arm. This
creates enough stiffness to secure the belt on the arm without making the
belt too stiff n uncomfortable.
Xiaoshu Liu: bmw dealer in laurel illinois told me i needa pay 600usd to fix the
actuator inside. I was like, go f**k yourself
Juan Mintes: y q tipo de aerosoles llevan almidon?? gracias. eso le pasa la mio
Gearz86: I used to notice that it only happened on hot days so i figured the belt
was just real soft...then it started happening all the time.
Mark Lambert: Brilliant! Can't believe I didn't think to check the belt itself. Thanks
Michael Mikulski: Thanks!
Luqi luq: Wow...1 of my friend who work on all luxury car's he told me it is belt
clip you have to buy new one but now hell no. I am going to try this
tomorrow on my day off Thanks you so much for this video.
MrBimborimbo: tried this on mine, step by step as you did. Unfortunately it didn't work
Carlo Bonino: I did this on my drivers side and works every time now! thanks for the
Sjsimmons1019: Boohoo! That's my head exploding or of amazement. It is so embarrassing
when people hey in my car and it doesn't work for them. Thanks for the
Julia Moore: Wow - how smart - thank you for sharing!
hashish2007: I hesitated to touch or adjust any safety-related feature of the car
myself. I can't tell if the heat may degrade any characteristics of the
seat belt. So, when I had the same problem last year and the vehicle was
also 3 years old, the repair was covered under BMW bumper-to-bumper
warranty. As far as I can tell, the tech adjusted something in the
mechanism. And when he got it finally working after about 3 hours, he made
a quite amusing "thank you God" gesture (I was looking from the second
floor of the shop) suggesting that he dealt with this issue before. :)
Mitch Oost: What's the name of the spray that you'll use?
klehmann22: your video cracked me up!! nice job! will def give this a go on my E92 as
Gus Lopez: How long does this solution work for? can anyone chime in? This issue just
started happening to me, I'm about to give this a try this weekend and
wanted some input from those who have done it.
bondovwvw: Can you do my slacks next
Fast Todd: Thank you for taking the time to make this video. I just picked up a car
and have this problem. I will try it this weekend.
sharigan1988: nice idea!
wojciech zając: To działa sprawdziłem :-)
Nick Murray: It worked for 3 months on my car but the arm then broke for good so I had
to replace it and no problem with it since. So not sure if it was the belt
or the arm that fixed it for good in the end.
blacklinc: Nice.. gotta try this. Mine just started messing up.
Nick Murray: Maybe the only thing I can iron is a seatbelt?? : )
jasmin5768: hahaha a lot of men dont even own a iron. She will be a lucky girl :)
Joe ASSY: Excellent job, but could you please give me more information about the
liquid in the bottle ? Thanks
TheJamesjonajameson: Thanks for this !!!! works a treat... nice one. Mine took 3 goes and is now
Demetrios Christopher: +1 for using a Rowenta iron! Thanks for the tip! My seatbelt extender has
been driving me nuts for over half a year now. Cheers!
jasmin5768: I am so turned on right now...a man who owns a BMW and knows how to iron!
Are you single by any chance? ;-)
Jason Walker: Good fix!
corpsman909: finally a solution... fml.
RMZ280: cant even imagine how much that car cost you there!!
Blake Fabick: I'll own one someday :/ In the meantime who will give me a ride? lol
ThePersianpimp336: Nick you're the man! My E92 had been missing for 6 months and my warranty
is over. I tried this tonight and it worked like a charm. Had to starch and
iron 3 times but it finally smoothed out. Whoever is having the same issue
try this first. Thanks again!
Nick Murray: That is ironing starch. You can get it at any market, for adding stiffness
to cloth. Good luck!
Mike Nebgen: Excellent solution! I just did this on our car. It worked perfectly and
cost nothing. I'm sure the dealer would have wanted to replace half the car
to fix this and then it still wouldn't have worked.
rightbrian: My seat belt extender is missing the seat belt entirely on the driver side.
Any ideas what to try to fix it?
s643: thank you sir! I was nearly going to change my seatbelt because of this
MattS2272: You should mount a bayonet on the end of the extending arm that shoots out
when the door opens with someone already in the drivers seat. As a kind of
medieval style anti carjacking device LOL. Imagine being stationary at a
set of traffic lights and someone suddenly opens your door then... HUZZAH!!
I CHALLENGE YOU TO A DUEL!!! BEGONE WRETCHED HIGHWAYMAN!!! XD
Sorena sbr: nice
yangjian Hu: great
