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?

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).
