  5. Manually Deactivating AWD?

  16. Rear Seat Center Belt Tensioner Issue

    All's well. New Seat Belt (& tensioner) installed. Only visible evidence of the replacement is that the New Belt is still a bit folded (as if it was packed in a box) - I'm sure that will work it's self out in time. I've no idea of how they got inside the “seat back” - but it all...
