a couple pieces of wire, four barrel splices and your back in business

This happened with our Solera. MB said that when the swivel seats are installed they are supposed to use a longer wire to the seat belt fastener. When this wire gets cut (from swiveling the seat) the airbag light goes on. Mercedes ordered a new seat belt buckle and wire and repaired the issue. It cost about $350 and FR reimbursed it since we got approval from their warranty department. The dealership told us that they see this all the time.

The sad part is, those swivel seats come from Mercedes. So if a longer wire is supposed to be used, then it is MERCEDES that should be paying for it.

That is not an aftermarket add on...those are stock seats.

Seat belt wire harness breaks when seat turned

Agreed. Customer is put in the middle. I give FR a lot of credit for standing behind the product even thought it wasn't their fault.
