Wet seat belt

Hi all,

I pulled out my near side rear seat belt when I was loading up the boot, and noticed the belt itself was wet. I haven't had a chance to investigate yet...thought I'd ask here to see if anyone has suffered from the same issue and found a fix???

Obviously, we've had a lot of rain lately, so it's water ingress...but from where??? I don't have a glass roof, and can't see anything obvious looking at the bootlid rubbers...then I ran out of time and daylight

As it is near where the line of the car drops at the back - first thing I would check is door seal...

Have a good feel around the headliner in that rear 1/4 on the nearside - if that is wet, then could be a crack on the sealant used between the side/roof panel of your car... I have seen something somewhere (you know, when you are bored and trolling) on other reports of this type of sealant crack and water ingress into the car...

I've had EXACTLY the same issue. I think mine was the ROOF, coming in under the black trim, where the roof joins the car body, at the rear. I put a load of silicon in, and it seems to have cured it.

The belt was soaked, so I put it around the front seat headrest, to let it dry out.

Sounds the same as my issue. Can I ask where you applied the silicone? I started to take apart the interior, and gave up when I ran out of time. Everything seems to be clipped together with fixings that are stronger than the surrounding plastics

If you stand by the rear fuel filler, the BLACK plastic, which is where a roof rack would attach.

The trim runs from the A Pillar, up the Windscreen, and all the way to the Tailgate.

You can prise it up by hand at the back, and silicone it up.
