Question about 1993 Subaru Legacy
The retractable seatbelts are not working. I thought the motor had gone out with the passenger seat when I noticed the shoulder harness no longer retracted. The belt stays good and tight and though sliding under is annoying, it does it's job.
But now the driver's side has acted up. First, it stopped moving, just as the passenger side, but then I noticed the motor was still trying to work and suddenly, the cable from the motor has spilled out and is hanging in the window. The belt will not lock in place. How on earth do I fix the retraction mechanism?
check the channels for any obstructions a loose piece of weatherstrip can cause this,if not one or both of the limit switches may be bad.a cheap fix is to forcr buckle into the most rearword position,your can should of came equipped with a allen wrench,on the lower part of 'b' pillar there is a plug remove it and the motor for the seatbelt is located there,install the wrench and turn counterclock wise to put buckle into rearword position,remove this pillar cover and disconnect motor connector,now all you have to do is buckle it everytime you get in and drive good luck!

worn out recoil springs to the little pop out cogs that stop the belt from rolling oout in a crash (centifigul springs). Thise springs could be very loose and wornout causing the pins to stay latched out at imes. Either replace(recommended0 or lube the ear/roller housing. You may have to remove door piller trim to access then seatbelt housing.
