2002 Toyota Solara Convertible seat belts not retracting

On my 2002 Solara convertible, the front seatbelts do not retract like they should. The passenger front does a little, but slowly. The drivers side hardly at all. The back seatbelts are fine.

    I have 2007 X5. The seatbelt got shut in the door and didn't retract all the way . The belt is twisted in the receiver-driver's door. I can't pull it out to untwist. I am not close to the BMW service.

The front seatblet retractor springs have weakened. Unfortunatly, there are no "user serviceable parts" on them. They would have to be replaced. How many miles is on it? If you have low mileage, the Toyota Customer Experience Center may provide you some assistance, as the belt replacements are quite expensive. I'd call the CEC and explain your dilemma. Here is the number: 1-800-331-4331

Seatbelt won't retract

1)move the plastic cover over the seat belt out of the way to gain access to the two mounting bolts for the seat belt mechanism. Use a 10mm wrench and a 14mm wrench and remove the two bolts holding the seat belt mechanism to the body. Use a small drill bit or small screwdriver and make one hole in the plastic cover on each side of the seat belt mechanism (the covers say "do not remove plastic cover". Spray lots of wd40 in each hole. Then exercise the seat belt. When the mechanism allows the belt to be retracted, retract the belt all the way out and exercise the seat belt. Reinstall mechanism with both mounting screws in original position and put plastic cover back in place. Good luck. New seat belt costs $100.00 from dealer and are hard to find working in junk yards. I have fixed several of them this way.

Happens all the time on ours. You need to take two flat blade screwdrivers and work out the fold in the
seal belt at the top and push the belt back into the slot and all will be well. It takes a few minutes of
working with it and perhaps a few choice words but
if you will keep at it and undo the fold in the belt, it will go back in. To avoid this in the future try to get in the habit of holding the buckle straight out in front of you as the belt retracts when you unfasten your seatbelt.
