Front Passenger Seatbelt Noise

Does everyone else have the front passenger seatbelt constantly, noisily, banging against the side of the seat when not in use? Anyone come up with a creative way to stop it?

Right now I keep it belted but as I have passengers I am certain it will be annoying to keep it up.

Yes, I put a strip of black velcro (soft side) on the passenger seat along the hard plastic edge that meets up with the seat material. I also put a small pieces around the corner of the buckle handle and it has helped a ton.

I've heard it too periodically. It's only sometimes so I've had a hard time pinpointing where it's coming from. I can't really jump into the passenger seat to get a closer look while driving. I'm pretty sure it's the latch bumping into the pillar like brandon mentioned. I hear the same thing in my Mazda. I'll keep an eye on this post.

Yup - I definitely have this !! I created a post a while back about this issue. The solutions I received were similar to @b_ran_don above, but with other types of felt pads or items that actually went around the seat belt. I even tried raising and lowering the seat belt height from the shoulder anchor. I like the above velcro idea because it's black, so I'm going to give this a try. I realized what was causing it, when I only heard the noise when no one was in the front passenger seat.
