Default Passenger shoulder belt

I don't know how to ask this.
My wife is always complaining her seat/shoulder belt has no play in it. She has to unhook it when leaning forward or shifting around in her seat.
Now mine ( driver side ) I can lean forward and it doesn't restrict me. I think thats the way it should be. Right ??
Thanks
God Bless +

It is not working correctly. It should work just like the drivers side. Take it back to the dealer to have them fix it under warranty.

The greater issue is that should you need to stop in a hurry will the belt do it's intended job or not?

If it's not working now, what will happen when you need it?

Take it back.

the locking ratchet is messed up

you should be able to lean forwards when driving or sitting normally
when you hit the brakes quickly, it is suppose to lock & keep you from hitting the dash or front windshield with your head

Agreed.

Seat belts should operate the exact same regardless of where they're mounted in a vehicle.

Definitely address it ASAP as it's a [serious] safety concern!

The belt does work different on the passenger side as it should. The trucks passenger seat belt has a positive lock for use with a child seat. My wife complained about this on our GMC & our Tahoe also.

Huh?

Child seats are not recommended to be placed in the front PS seats.

All my seatbelts operate the same.

Does she pull it all the way out when she puts it on? My ex-girlfriends mother was a larger lady and had to pull seatbelts out a ways to get them on and in so doing activated the locking part. So when whatever slack went back into the roll, doesn't come out again until you unbuckle the seat belt. Kind of locks it into place.

That is a Safety Issue & you still have your Safety Warranty

Your Ram in your signature looks like a 2 door Regular Cab

likely the seat belt is either twisted inside of Restraining Mechanism
or
you have a broken spring inside that mechanism

Let the dealer replace the whole seat belt
