Flapping seat belts?

So now the weather is finially getting warm enough to drive with my windows down, but when I do all the seat belts in my truck start flapping all over the place and make a bunch of noise with the wind, is there any way to stop this besides driving with the windows up?

Try buckling them. My old truck did this and I would buckle them and problem solved.

94% of all Dodge Cummins trucks from1992 through 2012 are still on the road today..... The other 6% made it home.....

If it still runs when you delete it, you don't need it!

Mine does this too, but only if the wind hits it just right. I just roll up the window a little diff, and all is good.

I just dealt with this yesterday. Putting the rear window down to change the air flow through the cab helps slightly. The only way to make it totally go away is to wear the damn thing.

Something that helps, for me anyway, when I have the front windows down, I only put the rear ones down about 1/3 of the way. I might have the front passenger one flap a bit if there is a gust from outside, but this way works majority of the time.

Running into this problem too. It's quite annoying, I'm going to look into possibly tensioning the belt some more or fabing something up to hold the belts to the B-pillar this weekend. If anyone finds a solution before then let us know!
