Rear Seat Belt Comfort Guides No Longer Included on Some Vehicles

Rear Seat Belt Comfort Guide packages for the second- and third-row seats, if equipped, are now available to order for 2022 XT4, XT5, XT6, Blazer, Traverse and Acadia models. These models do not include rear seat belt comfort guides, which were previously shipped in the glove box for installation by customers. The Rear Seat Belt Comfort Guide package is available for a nominal cost.

When installed on a shoulder belt, the rear seat belt comfort guide positions the shoulder belt away from the neck and head, providing added seat belt comfort for older children who have outgrown booster seats and for some adults. (Fig. 19)

Each Rear Seat Belt Comfort Guide package includes two seat belt comfort guides and installation instructions. (Fig. 20) One kit will be needed for two-row vehicles and two kits will be needed for three-row vehicles.

TIP: The rear seat belt comfort guides should not be ordered and installed on a vehicle as a warranty claim. The guides will not be included in vehicles shipped from the assembly plant.

Owner’s manual information will note that the rear seat belt comfort guides are available to be ordered through dealerships.
