SOURCE: Replace rear passanger seat belt mechanism

The mechanism is located behind the plastic cover on the door side. You'll need to remove this trim piece to get at it. It's held on by screws. When you get to the mechanism it is held on by a torx bolt.
Good luck

Most of the time this happens because the belt gets twisted behind the B pillar trim panel. The lower portion of the panel that the belt goes behind can be removed enough to see behind it by gently pulling outward, it is held in place with plastic clips. If the belt is twisted up in there, untwist it and snap the panel back in place.

Seatbelt want work in 1994 nissan sentra


If the seat belt will not retract then it is either chaffing against something restricting its movement or the rewind mechanism is defective. Pull the belt out to its full length to see if there are any twists in it. If so simply untwist it. Does it retract at all? If not, then it needs replacement. If it partially retracts, you need to gain access to its wind up mechanism to check it there is some obstruction preventing it from fully retracting. If no apparent obstruction, then it needs replacement.

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.
