#120 of 174 Chevy TrailBlazer annoying seat belt design
Jun 08, 2005 (7:19 am)
I have a 2005 Trailblazer. As you all know, the GM triplets come with the in-the-seat front seat belts. I find this setup very uncomfortable, with the seat belt pulling on my shoulder and collarbone. Does any one know if there are parts one can easily install, maybe on the headrest, to raise the belt and ease it's tension on my shoulder? Or maybe a taller plastic retainer part from which the belt emerges? I don't know if GM makes such a part. I asked at the dealer and they said they can not legally make any modifications to the belt. I think there might be a couple of ways to remedy the situation. So if any one knows how to fix this annoyance, would be glad to hear it!
Otherwise, love the vehicle, the Bose sound is awesome and seats are very comfortable. Good power and room.

Also, does any one know how to disable the seat belt reminder chime from coming on when not wearing the belts? I could not find it in the manual.

Yes, I agree that the seat belt integrated into the seat back is annoying, especially for taller people. There isn't much you can do about it. I have a couple of those velour pads you wrap around it and secure with hook/loop fasteners. That at least minimizes it. I always thought it was designed that way due to the side airbags being available.

hi, the 9" extenders, do they have a part number or name or are they just called extenders? What do they do exactly? Thanks a lot...
Still hating the seatbelts, what a bad design...the dealership refuses to even touch the issue...

I was at my Chevy dealer today to have some work done on my other car. I asked my service advisor about the 9" seatbelt extenders. He stated that Chevy will supply two of them at no charge. I had him order them for me. The part # is 12533459. If the 9" isn't long enough ecause someone might have a bigger gurth, they do have a 15" extender. Hope this helps everyone out. I do not know what the part # is for the 15".

The black boxes under your backseat house the battery for your onstar and several different types of fuses. No, do not take it out and it is not the mysterious "black box" of which you have heard. Doesn't anyone read their manuals anymore?
#128 of 174 HomeLink for 05 Trailblazer LS

I recently bought an 05 TB LS that did not have HomeLink. Am I able to purchase this and either install it or have it installed? How difficult is it to put this in?

Has anyone removed third seat on the EXT to make the back more 'storage oriented' rather than 'sitting oriented'? The questions would be: 1) Can you remove the third seat easily and does that improve the back storage area? 2) What other 'modifications' can you make to make the TB EXT more 'storage friendly'? Thanks in advance.
