    Seat Belt Contact with Center Console Side Piece

    Is it just me or have any of you out there find yourselves accidentally hitting the Center Console's side pieces with the metal male portion of the seat belt? I think I'm at a point where I have to order a new one (since I keep making small dents on the brushed aluminum side pieces).

    I guess I need to be more careful or perhaps be slower when inserting the seat belt tab. I was just curious if others had the same issues.

    Yep, I've had the same situation occur on two or three occasions now. It sucks to look down and see the dings in that nice brushed aluminum finish.

    These side pieces are super sensitive and get dents from almost any contact !!!

    Yes very hard to keep from getting dings on this aluminum piece. Even as I'm aware of it I'm still occurring new ones. Passengers will usually cause ones when they use the seatbelt. I got my Evoque back from the dealer today to fix a front seat issue and there were a couple new dings on the aluminum. Maybe a piece of wide clear plastic tape cut carefully to fit the most damage prone area would help protect it.

    my seat belt fitting has a soft velcro type pad on them. It matches the tan interior so it is not noticeable. Its a cheaper route, but buy a thin padding and cut out the shape to prevent further denting.

    Would you post a photo of your seat belt and the soft Velcro pad please ?

    I may have misread in the post what was getting dinged up. I was thinking your seat belt lock was doing it. The seat belt lock does not touch the aluminum piece. But it has a velcro padding on the back (picture in black). I guess this will only protect the plastic bottom part of the center console. Now that I investigated the aluminum piece some more, I now notice a very small ding. Thanks alot!!! lol

    Yes, I think you may have misread my original post. I believe all of our Evoques have that felt behind the female/receiving end of the seat belt buckle. I was referring to the male portion contacting the center console as shown below:
