TJ seat belt compatibility

Noob here,
I was working on my friends 03 Wrangler X and accidentally cut the passenger front seatbelt fabric. I know its probably still fine but I want to replace it to be on the safe side.

I found a used OEM at a local Jeep custom shop but they do not specify what year it came off of, they just say that it is from a TJ.

Are all TJ belts the same? I don't want to try and retrofit a belt that isn't meant for his model, for safety reasons. Please help a noob!

Thanks in advance!

I'm nearly certain they are identical. If their is a difference it shouldn't matter.

all of the designations says 97-02...does anyone know what changed between 02 and 03?

Also, does anyone know sites when I can order/look up OEM parts that actually tell me what the part numbers are? None of the OEM sites ive found tell what the part numbers are.

When I had my belts out i my 05 I did notice they are marked driver and passenger. Not sure why though. So they may be identical and maybe not. Can't think of a reason why not unless they are designed to pay out the belt to the left or right only.

I'm not worried about them being marked L or R. I am worried about the belt from a earlier TJ not being compatible with a later model. For example, will a belt from a 97-98-99 work properly on a 03.

If I'm not mistaken, the seats themselves changed in 03. Not sure about the belts.

that's what I was afraid of. So the 97-02 was a different part number, I wonder if they are compatible.
Do you know the 97-02 P/Ns?

The parts looks identical minus the latch. I am pretty sure that it would bolt up but not sure the 97-02 male part would work with the newer latch.

97-02 on the left 03-06 on the right

The springs in the bottom section are on different sides, so you need the correct side for them to install and work properly.
I would hate to be the one in an accident and got hurt because someone installed the wrong seat belt in it and it didn't function properly. The lawsuit would be pricey.
My seat belt just broke and now I'm looking for a replacement as well.
Car-Part.com--Used Auto Parts Market is another source, but I do trust Davey and he normally has anything you need at a good price.

I am not sure what you mean by the springs are on different sides. From the service manual and pictures they look identical. Do you mean the passenger vs. the driver?

I called davey and he gave me a very good price!
