Disabling Seatbelt Assist

Can anyone let me know how to disable the anoying little seatbelt arm that extends on startup. The drivers side one is broken and never catches correctly. I'd rather it just sit stationary and not even move.

I'm not completely annoyed by it yet, but it IS kinda weird. Seems like something that would break in the future... Subscribed.

to be fair, the motor on it and the arm come out fine, but the stupid end never catches. It isn't worth my time to even have it as it is just anoying to me at this point. It works fine on the passenger side which is ok for my girlfriends, friends etc. to oogle at.

I have the same problem. It works for me about 1 in ten. Every time for the passenger one. I'm thinking about taking the car in to get it looked at. It is annoying that it won't work properly.

Has anyone tried to replace the little arm? Dealer quoted me $540 with labour to replace it.

The thread lives again! I have heard other people being quoted in that ballpark hence why nobody fixes it.

got the driver's side already replaced twice on mine all covered under warranty, last time about a month ago, they replaced the arm and it didn't fix it so they put a new belt in, problem fixed.

Second mod for me after ZHP knob was to take the fuse out for the seatbelt butlers. I've got a my method down to reach the seatbelts without looking like I'm doing yoga haha

Is the fuse panel behind the glove box just checked mine and according to the cardboard diagram my #25 slot there is no fuse am I looking in the right place?
There is a green 20A fuse in slot 23 and no fuses in 24 and 25.

The BMWhat app allows you to code the butler disable - if you happen to have that app.
