I need help fixing two stuck seatbelts. One is on 2nd row, right side of vehicle, shoulder belt won't come out far enough to buckle up. Also rear 3rd row right side (shoulder won't come out at all. This is on the seat that removable. I would like to know if this could be covered at the dealership free of charge due to safety issues. If not, can you help? Is there a manual for fixing it that i can download? Thank you so much. I appreciate any attempt to help me.

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
You have a limit switch at each end of the seat belt track. One could be bad. Is belt stuck forward or at the back? It also has a module to control it.
It operates like a garage door opener. If you have to replace track, it's a big job. Have to take a lot of trim off the van. Best thing to do is get it in the rear position and just use the buckle. Get used part at car-part.com.
page with * is lowest pice. Or, go to pick n pull salvage yard and pull it yourself and learn how it comes out.
you can remove the bolt that holds the seatbelt to the floor by pulling off the seatpad where the belt goes to the floor and then raise the seat and the belt should reset. this happens on my passenger side rear seat.
Hi, sit in middle seat facing forward. If seatbelt is mounted in roof over your right shoulder, the clip on the end of the seatbelt clips in down by your right hip. Then the 'free' clip clips in by your left hip in to one of the two seatbelt clips. If you have done it right you should have a lap/sash configuration with the belt form the roof running over your right shoulder. The roof belt is also 'inertia reel' and behaves the same as all the other belts. To get out of the seat belt undo the 'free' or middle point clip only. When you have finished altogether, press key in to end clip lock and store back in the roof. If you have problems getting clips in to holders press the release tab on the holder. Hope that helps.
