Where to Buy Seat Belt Receptical
Greetings all, my first post here, and it's a question... :)

My car is 2002 325i base model. The problem I'm experiencing is the seat belt receptical (passenger side, front) won't latch, it hasn't been fired and I have no SRS light, etc. Don't know if it's possible to repair the latch (broken spring?) but thought I'd just replace the whole thing.

But I'm having trouble finding a place to purchase a seat belt receptical (other than the dealership), the only place I found one was Bimmer Specialist but they say you can't buy it online becase it contains hazmat (the pyrotecnic pre-tensioner mechanism I assume). Obviously these items are shipped frequently, my guess is it's a matter of shipping just one part that would be too expensive.

I've done quite a bit of searching online, and have read through the DIY posts on this forum. I found great tips on how to replace the unit but not where to buy it. I live in Salem, Ore. by the way. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

We had a problem with the drivers side and I got a quote from BMA parts (Below), it started working though before I bought it, note that this part number is for the drivers side, you mentioned passenger:

Thank you - I've sent an e-mail to BMA parts, I'll let you know whether that works!

Resolved. BMA has the part and will ship it. Armed with the part number (72 11 9 119 552) I also found it at PartsVP and Schmiedmann. This is the kind of thing that may be harder to find without the part number. Not sure why some places won't ship and some will. Anyway thank you for the help!
