    I've got a SRS code 9-3 (driver's seat belt buckle). It's probably the well known issue with the microswitch plunger. I've read online that on various other Hondas/Acuras, the buckle uses torx screws, but that's not the case with the buckle on my 6GA. Not sure what this is. Looks like it might be a hex head, but it's very rounded for a hex head, and doesn't look like there's enough room in there to slip a socket into.

    Any ideas?

    You are looking at the backside of the screw. The plastic housing is 2 piece and it snaps together. If you look on the side of the buckle you can see the seam. Not sure if you can do it while still in the car? I've never tried. Mine was removed from the car when I did it.

    My local Honda dealer was willing to warranty it, so I had them take care of it.
