    Thumbs up noise when pulling your seat belt FIXED!

    hi, i'm new to this forum, i just bought a wrx wagon 2004 with 134,xxx miles on it
    this is going to be my first tutorial, so give me feedback**

    problem: everytime i enter my car and pull my seat belt, i hear a very anoying hissing like sound. It does for the driver and passenger seat belt only.

    target: 02~07 imprezas? they all have the same or similar trims

    level of difficulty: easy

    tools needed: a cutter, and a fork ((trim tool) optional)

    pictures are token for the passenger side

    1. open both front passenger and rear passenger doors
    2. start removing the rubber that cover the edge of the doors

    3. unclip the bottom trim of both doors with the *fork* or simply pull them with your hand
    the front passenger bottom trim is holded with 3 clips and 2 pins (no need to completely removing them)

    6. put the trim on some cloth to avoid scratching it and the hissing noise is made from the friction of the seat belt to the 3 rear tablets. So use your cutter and start cutting them off (don't hurt yourself* be careful using the cutter)

    7. reinstall everything backward and for the bottom trim of each door make sure the clip are aligned with the hole. those are really fragile, so make sure the seat well before clipping them or else you'll need a new one

    thanks for reading and give me feedbacks!

    I wondered what my seatbelt was rubbing on...
    Nice tutorial. I don't think you have to pull off the rubber though. I've pulled off some of my door jam pillar plastic before and don't remember the rubber being and issue. I think I removed the top pieces though...
