Seatbelt Replacement

I am getting ready to sell my 1995 Wrangler SE and am making a few repairs to make it more appealing.

One of the issues I have with it is... it seems the seat belt latch (the female end of the seat belt) has issues latching. I usually have to stick a key in there, pop the button up and shove the male end in a couple times before it latches. And then even, if I move wrong sometimes it comes undone.

SO, since I think this is a BAD thing to sell to a person with it that way, I would like to just swap out the female part.

I was looking on JC Whitney (as I understand they are one of the FEW places that'll sell seatbelts due to the liablity) and I wanted to make sure that THIS is what I needed...

Since I'm not really looking for the belt part itself, just the female end, I wanted to make sure. Because they had this one listed too...

... but thats for the whole shoulder belt and laptop etc which I am not needing to replace.

Anyways, your advice would be apprecated. THANKS!

Once I get it all replaced, I'll put it on here for sale. Trying to find a Drivers side upper soft window too as someone ripped mine trying to break in.

If this is for the front seat, you may want to look and see how the female side attaches. Because it has to go through that stiff piece of plastic that holds it up next to the seat. If that looks like it will work, then you should be fine. The PO of my Jeep, lost both female ends for the back seat, since he never used the back seat. He was nice enough to send me a whole new set to replace them. The laws for selling seatbelts have changed since '94, and they have changed the mechanism. And they are not interchangable. This worried me since they are shoulder harnesses in the back. The good news is that you can replace the male side on your existing shoulder strap. They come apart fairly easily and you don't have mess with that spring thing. So just replace the male connector and run the female strap through that plastic thingy. You can probably get away with the $26 one.

I recently had the same problem on my drivers side seatbelt, and I ended up swapping out the rear latch for the front. I tried to pull the front belt out of the plastic sheath but it was glued in, so I ended up cutting it out. Now my front belt works but I am missing the plastic sheath, though it works just fine without it. The only problem is that sometimes it does fall into the creavice between the console and seat and it is a little longer, but if you are conscientous when you take it off, you should be alright.
