Volvo V70 rear seatbelt jammed

In attempting to fix the problem, the rear widest part of the folding seat is now stuck forward as the seatbelt will not release. This means I cannot carry the small kids in the car together as there is now only one usuable rear seat. The seat belt is locking where it should pull out of the back seat (at shoulder height). Have tried to free it, but having same problem you're having, backseat now will not go back into upright position - help!

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.

There is a small plastic plug that fits on the seatbelt whose job it is to stop the seatbelt spooling too far into the seat. This little plug comes off easily. That's what's happened to our seat so many times its not funny. Thanks for the info on how to release the seatbelt.
The plug on the belt needs to be small enough so that the belt buckle/lock can travel over it. If you look on the seatbelt on the other side of the car you'll see the little plug. The volvo part is just not up to the level of abuse it gets from us. Now I have to figure out how to make a more durable replacement. I'm sick of going back to the dealership for a fix that lasts a month or two at most.

Remove the rear seat side squab by gently pulling away at the top then lifting up ( it is fixed by a push clip at the top and a hook at the bottom).
Undo the nut which anchors the seat belt and left the belt to one side of the seat, lift up the the rear seat and tehn simply reposition the seat belt. Refix and tighten the seat belt anchoring nut at the bottom then replace the squab by hooking and pushing in to fit. You will need a slightly larger plastic clip to retain the seat belt in future. A small nut and bolt may do!!!

What are they charging you for this fix? They quoted me $150.00!! A bit much I'd say for every month or two!

Rear passengerside seat belt stuck in retracted position,cannot raise rear seat to upright position. how do I fix it?


You will most likely need to replace the seatbelt retractor. The best place to find a replacement is usually your local self service auto salvage lot. I replaced mine last year and it ran me $10 for the retractor and u pull and pay.

Where does the rear drivers side abs wire plug in?


Under the rear seat. Fold it forward and you will also have to pull up the carpet and cover under the seat.

How do I remove the rear seat on a 2001Volvo V70?


I am going to assume you mean the normal rear seats, not rear facing seats in the very back.
The rear seat folds down. The benches fold up from the back. When they are up you can see how to easily remove them if you want.
When the benches are up the backs fold down. There are levers on the top the slide forward to release them so they can be folded down. Tip the outboard head restraints forward by pulling their straps. The center head restraint has a button behind its right-hand support that you push to allow it to be lowered.

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

Volvo V70 rear seatbelt jammed


i know this sounds rough, but pull the seat belt with both hands as hard as you can, this will more than likely free the seat belt, some of the seat belt may have jammed in the gear inside the roller box.......

Rear seat tumbled forward for more room in back and seat belt jamed. now back seat can not go back into position.


To fix that scenario, I have to get to the bolts anchoring the seat belt which can be found under the rear seat. Which a socket wrench, remove the bolt freeing the seatbelt to allow you room to release the lock to pull the belt out from the top of the back seat. You may now push the back seat into its upright position and then refasten the seatbelts with the bolt to it's former position under the back seat.

When I in later times need to lower the back seat, I will either loop the seatbelt around the head rest or tie two belts together allowing for slack in case the belt tightens again when trying to move the seat back to its original position.

.....Very frustrating!!!
