Upgrade to latest trim to eliminate seatbelt rattle

In my 2021 Y, unoccupied seat belt buckles rattle against the B and C pillar lower polypropylene trim.

As you can see in this Munro Live clip,
, the latest Y has carpeted versions of these trim.

I am planning on solving the rattle by swapping my trim pieces for the new ones. Has anyone done it?

Also, I tried to log into the service manual to get the parts numbers to order. I already have a subscription but when I go to service.tesla.com, the service manual link is no longer there. Does anyone know what happened to it?

I was going to buy some self stick Alcantara but then I found these on Etsy

I take delivery of a Fremont PMY this Thurs and see if they have addressed this issue. If not I’ll reinstall these brackets

Pretty easy to stretch your seat belt around the headrest. Problem solved at NO cost.
You can also just click your belts in too but either way you'll need to disconnect them to drop the rear seats when you have cargo to load. The 3D printed holders solve the rattle and don't interfere with remotely dropping the seats down from the trunk.
