Complain to Chevy!
Defective Seat Belts is a SAFETY ISSUE!
Nothing Makes an automaker jump faster than the threat of Bad Publicity on a SAFETY ISSUE.
Safety Issues can lead to lawsuits & recalls GM does NOT want to the public to know about! I have the same issues with the center row seatbelts on my 2001 suburban LS, and I do not want to be the only voice complaining to GM on this topic: My buckle housings have split apart and come off of my center row seat & I cannot replace the belts they're sewn to, because GM has sewn them to brackets welded directly to the floor beneath the Center row seat.
Please tell us what GM does for you!

I think the removal/installation is pretty straightforward, but you might want to get yourself a Haynes or Chilton's manual to learn the proper bleeding procedure, especially if you have ABS brakes. The public library might have this by the way.

I am a novice back yard mechanic (i.e. I don't know what I'm doing). How do I replace the fuel filter in my 99 suburban 1500 (4wd)?

The fuel filter is located along the LH frame rail.
IMPORTANT: If the in-line filter is plugged, the fuel tank should be inspected internally and cleaned if necessary. Refer to Fuel System Cleaning.
* Do not drain the fuel into an open container. Never store the fuel in an open container due to the possibility of a fire or an explosion.
* Refer to Battery Disconnect Caution in Cautions and Notices.
1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
2. Relieve the fuel system pressure. Refer to Fuel Pressure Relief Procedure. Have a dry chemical (Class B) fire extinguisher nearby.
3. Turn the filter housing counterclockwise and allow the fuel remaining in the filter housing to drain into an approved container.
4. Remove the fuel filter housing and gasket from the base.
5. Remove the fuel filter cartridge.
6. Inspect the inside of the housing for signs of rust or corrosion. Discard the housing if rust or corrosion is present.
1. Install a new housing gasket. Apply a few drops of clean engine oil to the gasket.
2. Install the new filter cartridge.
3. Connect the housing to the base. Tighten
o Tighten the filter housing until the gasket seats.
o Tighten filter housing 3/4 of a turn more.
4. Check for fuel leaks.
4.1. Connect the negative battery cable.
4.2. Turn ON the ignition switch for 2 seconds .
4.3. Turn OFF the ignition switch for 10 seconds .
4.4. Again, turn the ignition switch to the ON position.
4.5. Check for fuel leaks.

#435 of 607 03 tahoe cuts out when i hit a bump
Aug 10, 2008 (5:10 pm)
i have an 03 tahoe that cuts out when i hit a bump , message #391 had the same thing going on ,any ideas??
i have an 03 tahoe with an intermitten problem when I hit a bump it seems like my vehicle shuts off and turns on momentarily. Sometimes the door locks just cycle and sometimes the check engine light goes on and off, ABS light comes on and off, brake warning light goes on and off, service brake system flashes across my odometer and chimeing like I just started the vehicle. I also lose power for a second. Sometimes the ABS light and brake warning light stays on. My brakes work fine and the brake warning light goes out when I shut off and restart the vehicle, then after running awhile the ABS clears. At least till I hit another bump. Any thoughts where to start? It seems to be a loose electrical connection. Checked ths grounds off of the engine and it isn't loose. I also had the seat heaters on when it did this and they turned off. No OBD codes
