Hey Guys
I have a vibrating sound coming from the center column (upper seat belt) on the passenger side. Anyone more?

What makes it make the sound? Going over bumps? Just driving along a smooth road?

My buckle taps the b pillar if I hit a bump just right. Obviously if there is someone in the seat and using the seat belt...no sound. My last car did the same thing, just a function of it hanging there in my case.

Hello
What makes it make the sound? Going over bumps? Yes, most of the times on uneven roads
Just driving along a smooth road? Sometimes occurs too
Unfortunnely dont come from the buckle!
Its a rattle behind the b pillar panel!

It may be the belt moving inside the panel. Try hooking the belt to put more tension on it and testing it.

I have a rattle coming from the same area. I checked it the other day and the rattle seems to be coming from the vinyl cover on the bottom seat belt pivot. I haven't taken the time to correcting it yet but when I tapped on the cover it seemed to be rattling on the metal piece it's covering.
Let us know what YOU find.

Followup, I still haven't taken the time to investigate my rattle further, but I can add that when my wife rode in the seat today there was no rattle. I'm thinking there's a metal to metal pivot point at the anchor point low on the "B" pillar and when there's tension on it, it can't rattle.

Maybe pre tensioner is rubbing / moving around.
