Default Sure Cure For Fluttering Seatbelts

Warm weather is returning and it seems that driving faster than 20 mph with the window down makes the straight section of seatbelt that is between the panel and the upper guide flap, flutter, buzz, etc.

Here's my easy $2.40 solution - a fuzzy belt cover from Wal Mart. They sell them in natural and a gray tint. This one is the grey one. It goes on with velcro, fits between the the two points and it does not interfere with the belt's sliding.

And the belt is now quiet and behaved.

Great idea and seemingly too obvious to be thought of before. Will have to look into it, thanks!

Usually with the belt on and driver side window down it doesn't flutter for me, but the passenger side does. I just leave the window up a inch and a half and it stops.
