SOURCE: How do I tighten up the front seatbelt retractors?

hi, the problem you have is their is no way of tightening them the only thing you can do is clean and oil them but to do this you would need to take them off any way, your best solution would be to go to a breakers yard and pick a couple up you should get these for next to nothing and this would solve your problem.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance

MDX front passenger seatbelt is twisted.

Seatbelt stuck


Park it on a flat/ level surface, try it now, if still stuck, lightly tap the belt housing if you can see it, you may need to remove a panel to get access to it, just follow the belt back to the retractor beside/ behind your set. Be sure the belt is not twisted, once you got it coming out, pull the belt out all the way till it stops and let it feed its way back in again slowly. There not fun to pull to bits and try to fix, i would recommend installing a new one.
good luck

Drivers seatbelt is fully extended


My first try is always:
tap lightly & carefully on the retractor housing while pulling & releasing tension on the seatbelt.
If that doesn't work:
Blow compressed air into the retractor mechanism (they accumulate dirt/lint).
If that doesn't work:
Disassemble (and clean) the retractor mechanism. Reassemble with a bit of white lithium
grease lubricant (to prevent a recurrence). This is a bit of work, but it'll always work.

2002 Mazda Protege5. While changing rear struts, the rear seatbelts had to be unmounted. I allowed the seatbelt to retract and now it will not extend (only retracts/takes in) far enough to mount it back....


Hi, these retractors or sensitive to direction so that if the are not sitting properly they will not release. as if in a roll over situation. try holding the retractor at the angle at which it was mounted and then apply slight tension on the belt pulling out. Don't take the plastic covers off or the spring inside will come a part and you will be buying new belt assembly's

How can I un-stick a stuck seat belt. It worked fine last time we used it and does not seem to be twisted. 2001 chevy blazer


If it is stuck in the seat belt clip (meaning its buckled) then that model year had a seat belt buckle recall for failure. If its stuck in the seatbelt retractor and your seatbelt retractor is floor mounted there is a release pin on the ratchet gear. TO access it you will need to remove the plastic cover located at the floorboard next to the door on the side of the car that is stuck. If its a seat mounted retractor this means the retractor mechanism is located within the seat frame. You will need to view the bottom of the seat of the belt and see the anchor point. Seatbelts must be anchored to frame of car. Trace it into the seat back. If its located in the back of the seat you will need to remove the seat cover to the extent to reach the mechanism. This can be located at the bottom of the seat.. but more than likely is located at the shoulder area. The Seat cover (fabric) is removeable via clips located at the base and tucked into the seat (think hidden bra/pant clip style connectors or zipper) If you have leather seats it is a bit more detailed and more difficult to manage the seat covers. Typically your local Chevrolet dealer mechanic can get this done in 10 minutes (based one experience) and quite possibly wont charge you or charge you minimally. The downside to this is if its locked that means the same gear that locks it in an accident was frozen in place somehow and this typically indicates a dirty dirty spring or broken spring mechanism. The locking pin operates on centrifugal force and activates based on speed by which the seat belt is pulled out. (just a bit of knowledge) Good luck

Check the owner's manual. There is usually a release for the headrest hidden under it. If not, you may need to remove the back seat by pulling it away from the back of the car.

Another fix if all else fails is to carefully remove the trim panel where the seat belt retractor is and then disconnect the retractor, reclaim the belt and then securely refasten it.

Saturn vue 2007, rear folding seat will not return to proper position due to seat belt being locked up.


They have a problem with the seatbelt retractor getting jammed up causing the belt to jam & not let the rear seat fold back up.The easiest way to get the seat back up is to cut the seatbelt & fold up the seat.Then the rear seat needs to be disassembled to gain access to the seatbelt retractor assy which has the seat belt made on.Hopefully it's still under warranty or Ext. warranty.hope this helps
