Discovered you can disable the seat belt chiming noise.

Turn ignition on (without starting engine).
Put seat belt in & out 9 times. (Yes 9!)

Hey presto - no more chimes.
To enable again follow same process.

Was unfaithful.... Read it on another forum!

But it worked-so thought I'd share

Good one...

The Evoque seat belt warning is a bit unsubtle, to say the least. I'll be disabling mine!

The question is - why are you guys driving without your seatbelts on?

Called moving the car arround the drive to let others out.

The chime is not required, at least in the UK, when in reverse and when driving at less than 5mph.

The seat belt chime in my (Australian) Evoque only operates at speeds above 20km/h. Must have different settings for different regions.

jenkspj, you must have a nice sized drive to move the car around that much to set the chime off.
Mine only sounds above a certain speed like EDU's Thumbs Up
 
Why anybody would choose to disable such a safety item is beyond me to be honest, if nothing else the chime is a reminder not to break the law, and could save your life - i think i will put up with it for the a few seconds every now and then !.
 
Sorry if that sounds like a moaning rant, thats not what i intended, especially as you were just passing on knowledge to the rest of us ! Clap

We live off a single track unadopted road with no on street parking, the drive isn't that big so it is often a case of move one car out onto the road, move the other one on to the road, put the first one where the second was was, and so on. The last thing I want is a seatbelt off an on each time I get in and out.

And mine starts chiming as soon as the car goes into gear....

Jenkspj, i can see your point especially if it starts as soon as you are in gear - Like i say i hope you did not think i was having a rant at you in particular (to be honest your comments i have read on here seem to indicate you would be sensible enough anyway).
I am sorry to say that i have seen the aftermath of people who have chosen not to wear seatbelts and the though of something thats there to remind people to wear them being disabled scares me a bit.
 
To be honest where i park its best if i can get my osr tyre lined up tight to the side of the parking space so i normally open the door to get a 'visual' on the position as i reverse ...... and get greeted by the 'door open' chime' sounding along with the parking sensors. Its quite a symphony and funny enough i know the door is open !

No rant recognised...you'd have to try harder! Wink

We also have a Mercedes: the warning chime starts off quietly and well spaced, the longer you drive without a belt on the louder it gets! I wish the Evoque did that.

As to wearing seatbelts I'm 100% with you...I've always worn them, likewise on the bike I'm a "all the gear, all the time" person. Watching kids riding a scooter wearing shorts, flipflops, a t shirt and just a cheap lid fills me with horror. The point was made on a recent "bike safe" course when they showed a video of a guy who had slid on his backside on the road after falling off at about 40mph. He spend more than 4 months in hospital over a 12 month period having re-constructive surgery. Lost about 4cm of backside muscle...!

Totally agree.
My hubby is a fire fighter - I hear of the things he sees... Seat belts wearing all the way.
Just don't need noise to remind me, it's habit to put on, & have visual display to check on my passengers
