get your dealer to replace the seat belt, depending on age, should be under warranty. Belt is defective. I have a g 2003 vue, and my dealer replaced the belt for no charge.

SOURCE: cannot access rear bolts as power seat stuck in

Bolts should go through the floor with a nut underneath the car. No need to try to access from inside.

Nope typically, you need to extract the seat belt roller mechanism. Carefully you need to open the covers, do not bust any catches, get a strong light. Where you need to wind up looks like a ratchet. Along this ratchet is a catch that needs to be manually released.

This release is not always very easy, often the belt being tight restricts surgical access.

If you even think that you may have damaged or tweeked something during this process, replace the whole belt. It is your life that depends on it.

I have never had to replace a seat belt, so it is not too fragile, just be carful.

You may have to take this one in. It is an inertia reel and is made to retain tension at all times, if you relieved the tension, reel is "sprung" and will have to be completely disassembled, in some accidents if the seat belt is used in the impact and impact is severe enough, inertia reel has done its intended job and needs to be replace entirely.

The biggest problem is over time, the seat belts get dirt and grime in the retractor. So the best thing to do is oil or clean out the belt retractor. God-Bless

Hi.

The inertia reel has not been mounted properly. Replacing Toyota belts is quite tricky. Follow the step by step procedure illustrated in manual below. Belts are included in seat removal procedure (clearly do not remove seat). Check chapter starting at page 183/184 in manual below.

Please refer to pages from 184 onward in this service manual.

Regards.

Ginko.

THE PASSENGER SEAT BELT WONT PULL OUT. IT IS STUCK IN RETRACTION MODE. IT WONT TAKE ANY AND WONT GIVE ANY


It sounds like the belt is twisted and has jammed the reel. You'll probably have to remove the trim that covers the reel and straighten it out.

1994 olds 98 rear seat belt (behind driver seat) is stuck


If brute force doesn't unstick it remove the back seat and pull the cover off of the reel. The problem should be apparent. You can turn the reel with a large screwdriver if need be.
If the belt is damaged find another one at your local recycler, the side reel is behind a plastic panel that is easily removed, the assemblies are held in by big bolts.

How Do I Fix a Seat Belt That Won't Retract ford escort rear belt


Hi,
What caused this to stick? has it been pulled heavily by loads in the rear? if it has it looks as if the inertia reel has slipped so the lock bearing is at an angle keeping it out.
Have you tried a couple of sharp jerks on the belt itself sometimes that does the trick, If not then find the reel possibly under side pocket or seat and check if loose.
Good Luck,
