Hi. How do I lengthen a rear retractable seat belt
The rear retractable seatbelts in my car are not long enough to accomodate certain sizes. :) I have removed the cover and can see that there is extra belt that can be used. How do I go about it? Thanks in advance

When putting a car seat into any Ford vehicle you can ensure that your child is securely fastened by simply pulling the seatbelt all the way out to it's limit of travel. Then allow the seat belt to retract automatically to a snug fit over the car seat hooks. You will notice as it retracts that it makes a clicking sound. This ratcheting action when manually activated this way will lock the seat belt firmly into the baby's safety seat providing asecure restraint. It's so easy to do and it could save a childs life!
Hi, these retractors or sensitive to direction so that if the are not sitting properly they will not release. as if in a roll over situation. try holding the retractor at the angle at which it was mounted and then apply slight tension on the belt pulling out. Don't take the plastic covers off or the spring inside will come a part and you will be buying new belt assembly's
Hi,I am guessing you haven't used these belts for a while.Quite often they will wind themselves up with normal car movement and lock.Grab the belt and pull as hard as you can(stretch it).It should come free.
you need to pull the belt out all the way to release it ,they have a locking mechanism for baby seats that stops them retracting,you pull them all the way out and they are reset and retract,common in modern cars,rare to give trouble
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.
