My driver-side seatbelt stalk rattles around a lot compared to the passenger-side. On closer inspection it seems that the passenger-side has a plastic bushing between the bolt shank and seatbelt stalk hole but not on the driver-side (it must've come apart during use, or wasn't replaced when a previous owner removed the stalk). I can confirm that the bolt is tightened as much as possible and is the same depth in the hole as the passenger-side.
Does anyone know either where I can source a replacement bushing or any recommendations for a DIY solution? I was considering putting a washer between the bolt and stalk however this would not solve the issue that there will be a radial gap between the two bodies where the bushing should be.This gap could be reduced by wrapping electrical tape around the shank, but anything more robust would be appreciated.
Cheers.

Thanks for the link - the exploded diagram was a huge help. It looks like parts 30, 33 and 41 are what I require because it's the seatbelt buckle assembly and not the pretensioner. Delivery is steep at £17.33 so I'm going to try some appropriately-sized rubber washers. Will let you know how this turns out.

Don’t need to pay postage if you get the correct part number and order from your nearest Honda dealer.

Two M12 rubber washers solved the problem. All of the correct parts were there, but the spring washer must've relaxed to a compressed position over time. Replacing this alone probably would've solved the issue.
