Dirty Seat belts...how best to clean?

I just love the light beige color interior of my wife's Heritage Edition C....but....

In just three years, the cream color seat belts are becoming soiled right where they are pinched to pull down in order to latch them.

Is there a way to clean the nylon straps w/o making them look worse (e.g. water stains, etc.)?

Wife has a Heritage....

Just use a mild soap & water with a rag & wipe them down.. if they get real soiled, get an upholstery cleaner from any store, test in an out of the way area, and then try that.

If you can't find a way to clean them, then consider replacing them.
They are very easy to replace. It takes about 45 minutes to replace a front seat belt the first time. Maybe 30 minutes the second time. My dog has chewed through 4 front seat belts, which has forced me to become unwilling expert in seat belt replacements.

From the many online Mopar sites, you can buy one belt for around $93.

Using spray laundry stain removers (such as Shout it Out) has always worked well for me. I've never had an issue with too much saturation into the belt or any type of discoloration as a result of the use.

Is that just the belt, or the complete belt/tensioner assy?

^^^^^^^^^What about the center rear one? That seems like it'd be harder to replace.

It is the belt/tension assy. It is sold as one unit.
Here is pic of the tensioner assy piece from someone else's car.
The entire belt and buckle comes with the unit.

The interior of my car is also light cream, I used a resolve laundry stain remover mixed with a little water to clean the seat belts & seats.

I bought my first two seat belts from my local dealer, which were $136 MSRP.
The second two I bought from this site.

Genuine Mopar Parts at Below Wholesale Prices

There must be a problem with their website (and Trademotion), because the seat belt assembly price is not listed. I just rechecked my receipt and each belt was $96.05. I mistakenly said it was $93 in my previous post. But I think the belt can be found a few dollars cheaper on some other Mopar websites.
The part numbers on my receipt were UX521DVAF and UX531DVAF
I believe the first part number is the right/passenger side.

Also, they apparently redesigned the Turning Loop Adjustable Cover, no. 6 on the website. So you will also need to buy that for $3.

I have bought from Wermopar.com a few times and they have been really good. I always placed my order over the phone. You probably should call them because their website seems to have a problem.
