Ulix commented on the fact that replacement seat belts have no provision
for the seatbelt buzzer:

The best way to eliminate that annoying buzzing is to remove the relay
from under the dash.  Cutting wires has a tendency to leave live wires
hanging around.  It's easy to find the right relay --  just leave the
seatbelt disconnected and pull out the relay that's vibrating.  Since 
this relay has a built-in timer, it could be very handy for custom anti-
theft devices.

To everyone in the northern hemisphere, Happy Winter Solstice!
To everyone in the southern hemisphere, Happy Summer Solstice!  Now give
us back the sun.

Don't forget to sacrifice a turkey or ham to the earth goddess of your
choice this harvest festival season.
