    tween seatbelt issues, 05 Odyssey

    My 10yo is 5' tall, 128lbs. In our 05 Ody she rides in the middle row, passenger side. Lately she complains that she can't sit properly because the seat belt is uncomfortable. I took a closer look at the setup with her sitting up properly and I think the angle of the shoulder belt is bad. Any suggestions for a fix?

    Adjusting the shoulder belt on the wall doesn't help?

    no, the wall adjustment is already all the way down.

    Try having her sit on the opposite side (so if she's in the left passenger seat, try the right). We have an 08 Odyssey, which I believe is the same body style, and I have noticed, weirdly, that the adjustment height on the wall of the left side differs from the right. (This is what you notice when you have twins in car seats LOL). So interestingly, my shorter twin does better sitting on the right side.

    Also, from an adult her size, try adjusting it UP. It's counterintuitive, but sometimes I need to put it up, not down (I'm 5'1", but otherwise her size).

    Also check the position of the seat and seatback- sometimes a little adjustment there can make a difference in belt fit.
