Ummm... YES! I would think so. If they argue go get a police office and have him chew out the service manager.

Lifetime warranty? On the seatbelt? Sounds fishy to me. It's a nylon wear item, and they tend to fray when slammed in the door. Go ahead and try it.

Yes,

Lifetime warrenty (as good as, anyway)...

It's part of the factory safety system - which includes SRS (air bags)... If anything is defective, Subaru has to fix it.

Defective I'll buy, but frayed on a 4-5 year old car? That sounds like it's been used a lot, not defective. Installed incorrectly should have been fixed 4 or 5 years ago though.

I had a seatbelt on a Nissan replaced under warranty & the only problem was that it woudn't retract properly! I think that anything that might cause you to DIE and your relatives sue the manufacturer are covered with no questions asked.

So what you're saying is that if I take a pair of scissors and cut my seatbelt in half, SOA is going to replace that for free because it is something that could cause me to die?
A defect, sure, but neglect/abuse or normal wear? I dunno.

Would they replace the brakes in the first 12k miles if the pads were worn down to the rivits, and you had SCCA numbers plastered on the side of your car? Probably not, even though the brakes are covered for 12k miles.

As long as you didn't use Horatio's scissors (and there's an actual safety issue), I expect Subaru will repair your seatbelt free of charge..
