I noticed the other day this was partly engaged on the track. I made the mistake of attempting to force this back into shoulder position, then it didn't move. I used all my weight today and was able to push it back to the side mirror position but I also noticed a cable hanging down. Am I going to need to replace the entire kit? Or should I look into a body shop or a dealer?

Re: subaru legacy automatic seatbelt
Hello, I am assuming that this is an early 90's Legacy. This was a fairly common problem w/ these systems once they reached a certain age. The entire unit will have to be replaced, the only problem will be locating one. If I remember correctly, back when the dealers still stocked them they were priced out at around $1,000. I am dreading the day when my '94 legacy's go out. I hope this info helps...(subytech1)...

is this car an automatic transmission?
if it is then you will need to check the gear selector switch on the transmission. I have seen one that would not properly engage for the park/neutral and reverse switches to function but the car was still drivable.
It has to be jerked just right for them to lock. Foreign cars are real touch when you **** them. American cars pretty much only lock up when you stop quickly and your whole body puts pressure on the belt.
You need to make sure that the grounds for the body and motor are good. Sometimes just turning the bolt will clean them up but better to remove, clean and replace. Also make sure battery terminals and wires are clean and secure. Hope this helps and have a great day.
That usually happens if the battery goes all the way dead or disconnected & reconnected. If that's the case you'll usually hear a clicking sound under the dash also. it's part of the security system & needs to be reset. You can reset the system by either using the remote if you have one or most have a reset button under the left hand lower side of the driver side dash, turn the ign. on, eng. off & press the button for at least one second.
There is a tester that allows the technician to check the different parts of the systems for parts failure, if you want to fix it then your best bet is to go to a dealer for repair.
