I have been lurking here since not long after I got my Vibe, 2003 Base Lava w/ Moons & Tunes, and yes I drove it off the lot, actually the first one that the dealership sold. lol. Y'all have been an amazing source of information over the years as I cling desperately to my baby.
As she ages, small things are wearing out and this week it is my driver side seat belt buckle. I followed all the directions I found about cleaning out the receiver and had no luck there, so I am on to replacing the part. I am having a lot of trouble finding an OEM part at a salvage yard. Right now I am buckling into the passenger side buckle, which works for now but doesn't feel especially safe. I saw an older thread about the safety light plug for the matrix part not fitting correctly so I would rather avoid that one. So my big question is, has anybody had any luck with a no name replacement?
