Seat belt problem

I just changed out my seats from an 01 to 05 seats and apparently the seat buckle is smaller in 01 than it is in 05.

my question now is how easy of a fix is this? can i just get an adapter or do i need to figure out how to get the old seat belt things off of my 01 seats and put them on my 05 seats?

Ok, this is for anyone whose swapped seats of these years. I looked at the buckle assemblies on the seats and they appear to be completely different haha.

For the 01 seats it looks simple, take the one bolte that holds this guide plate looking thing that covers the wire from the actuator to the buckle and it comes right off.

Well in the 05 seats, it looks as if its completely different...just wondering if it all bolts straight on or what. I dont have the torx bits i need to even take it off right now so this is why i am asking since i put the drivers seat back in haha.

You need to swap Pretensioners. That includes the female buckle end, the wiring under the seat, and the actual pretensioner. I have no clue if 01 and 04+ are different. No clue. Takes like a T35 torx bit. Really easy to do too...I just did it on my truck.
