...well, so were we!! We have the driver's and passenger shoulder/lap belts
on the 3rd row 3 passenger bench seat (stow and go split seat). There were
also 2 latches in the middle, one small and one normal size...and no belts.
Finally discovered belt in the roof...but only had one small buckle. Looked online and in the manual and found no answers. Talked to service advisor, and salesman who sold us the van and they didn't know either. While talking to Dodge shuttle driver (with same Grand Caravan), we discovered his van had two buckles on the same strap...we had two also, but the second was still locked into the roof!! You latch the small buckle then bring the belt over
the lap and lock the other buckle into the normal-sized latch. This buckle can
be undone by pressing the button on it like usual, but the smaller one needs a tool to undo. Suggest leaving it attached unless you need to fold the seat.
Hope this is helpful to anyone else who has been wondering, where IS that third seat belt!

Here what the owner's manual has to say in the "Things to know before starting your vehicle" section (page 60).
Quote:
Third Row Center Shoulder Belt Instructions
The shoulder belt for the third row center seat is located in the headliner slightly behind the third row seat. Pull the strap down and secure the small latch plate of the lap belt into the small buckle until you hear a "click". Position the shoulder belt on your chest so that it is comfortable and not resting on your neck. When the belt is long enough to fit, insert the large latch plate into the buckle until you hear a "click." The retractor should withdraw any slack in the belt. To release the small latch plate, position the end of the large latch plate against the red button on the small latch plate and push upward. Reinstall the latch plates into the headliner.

If your van didn't come with an owner's manual you can download one here: http://www.dodge.com/en/owners/manuals/.

Thank you, George!
We received 2 copies of a very pretty glossy manual and DVDs with our van, none of which have this information.
The downloaded manual is different and much more helpful...already saved
a copy for future reference!
Maybe a US version of the manual is the download one?!! Never thought there would be a different one out there.
Thanks again!
