My driver's side buckle has been broke for quite a while. To begin with was just giving problems buckling, would have to try and buckle it a few times before it would latch, now won't latch at all. Is this a known problem with an easy fix? I really don't have the money at the moment with another car build that has my money wrapped up into it. Was not sure if it could be taken apart and fixed or not. It is the driver's side front buckle.
They aren't made to be taken apart. But, when mine act up like yours is doing, i take a can of WD-40 and give it a generous shot down inside where the latch mechanism is. They get clogged up with dust and dirt. This usually does the trick, if not, you can get just the buckle part from JC Whitney for a cheap price compared to getting it from the Chrysler dealer.
rather the WD40 or other liquid lubes which can lead to more stuff getting caught inside, get a tube of powdered graphite lubricant, it works great in locks and mechanisims without attracting more contamination. I have used it on seatbelt buckles with similar issue and it worked wonders.
if you pull the seatbelts and receivers out of another vehicle you can bolt 'em in. My drivers side is original, passenger is GM with the red button release. You just need both parts of the seat belt, some patience and a really big torx bit lol.
