Maybe not, but that's all I can think of short of replacing the whole thing. I don't know how he would've gotten a new key part on there without un-stitching something, and if that's what he did, I wouldn't want to rely on it anymore.

As for not wearing one... I had a good friend who decided he didn't need to wear one to drive across town.... Keyword there being, "had."
Maybe, I might need a pair of pliers or something though to thread it through. I will have to google this a bit more and see how it is done.

Seatbelt switched around

The rahtard who had this jeep before me replaced the seat belt key end for some reason and put it on backward. This isn't a big deal but it slightly annoys me that it causes the seat belt to have a twist on it as it goes around me. Does anyone know how to either take the seatbelt clip off and flip it, or do it some other way?

I could just not wear a seatbelt, but I would immediately get pulled over and get a ticket, because that is the type of person I am.
