'92 mazda protege - disconnect seat belt warning buzzer

This car has automatic seat belts and they seem to be working fine (dealer checked it out and I tested by slamming on brakes). Problem is a buzzer goes off when the shoulder belt gets in certain positions. Quite annoying. Costs approx $1500 to replace the belt mechanism. If it's working fine, I'd rather just disconnect the buzzer, but don't really know where to do that.

Suggestions?

1500!?!?!?!

WOW...that sounds a bit crazy...but...i'm not a mazda dude so i'll sit here in shock.

as far as disconnecting the warning buzzer...that would be defeating the purpose of the system and i'm sure would violate some law or at least create a liability situation in this exceptionally litigious society we live in. i could only recommend repairing it properly by doing whatever is necessary according to manufacturer's service procedures and NOT by defeating a safety system.
