2000 Focus Seat Belt Retractor - Pleaes Help


I had the same issue with the rear seat belt. what my solution was taking the plastic cover off the top side that pulls the seat belt back in and notice that on these cars, they actually fold the seat belt at the very end to prevent tearing. therefore the seat belt was folded inside the re-tractor and got stuck. what i did for a solution was twisted the seat belt unfolding it by grabbing the other end behind the re-tractor and now it works. Try not to fully extend it next time...... if that doesn't work go to a junk yard 12 bucks replace the whole seat belt.

How to fix a stuck seat belt VW GTI 2009


I just solved the problem for a stuck rear center seat belt in my 2002 Jetta.

Flip the base seat cushion forward against the front seat backs. Trace down along the belt to its tether point on the floor. The belt is sewn around a steel loop. The loop is anchored to a black steel hook. A thin silvery retainer plate is spring tensioned on top of the loop to prevent it from sliding off of the hook when the seat back is folded.

Therefore, you need to press the silvery retainer plate away from the hook (push up) to allow the loop to be slid from the hook. The belt was tight with the seat back in the upright position, so it was necessary to fold the seat back forward to create slack in the belt. Now push the belt loop towards the trunk and slide it off of the end of the hook (only possible with the retainer plate pushed up out of the way).

Now with total release of tension on the system via the bottom end of the seat belt being untethered and with the seat back returned to the upright position, normal extension and retraction of the belt will be reestablished. Next, simply extend the seat belt and slide the loop back into place over the floor hook. It snaps past the silvery retainer plate without all the effort required to hold the plate up during removal of the loop during disassembly.

Check again, the seat belt should be extending and retracting properly. Now just put the seat cushion back into regular position and you will be able to safely buckle up three people across the back seat.

It took about as long to do this repair as it has taken to post this answer to the problem. Note, the seat belt safety mechanism only allows normal extension and retraction of the belt when the seat back is upright.

Seat belt on rear seat has jammed


This happens to me also. To solve the problem you need to un-bolt the seat belt clip. A bit tricky when the bench is tight down, but get a friend to hold it up out of the way as much as possible. This will relieve the tension and allow the seat belt to return to normal. To prevent this in future, pull the seat belt out and clip it in to place before lowering the back bench. This allows enough slack on the seat belt tensioner to stop the problem from happening again.

Fix a stuck back seat seat belt 2006 mitsubishi lancser


Most often the cause for the rear belts getting stuck is not an actual bad belt mechanism, but the belt simply getting folded over and retracted that way.

Try pulling the belt out as far as you can and inspect for the belt being folded. If this is the case, slowly work it back and forth trying to unfold it. It will take a while sometimes.

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

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.

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.......
