check the recall list for auto, take it to a dealer and tell them problem, a reputable dealer will will repair without conflict. If not report problem to mazda and express this safety item is not working . good luck.
At the bottom of the pillar between the front and rear door is a round plastic plug that pops out of the plastic cover on the pillar. Inside is the electrical connection for the automatic seat belt mechanism. DISCONNECT it. Also in same hole at the bottom of the pillar is a hex head (allen wrench) bolt. Insert the proper size hex/allen wrench (six sided) into the head of the bolt and turn clockwise (if driver side) until you hear a CLICK. This will release the shoulder harness latch that is in the upper track in the window and it let's it return to the closed door and fastened belt position. DO NOT reconnect the power that you disconnected. This keeps the latch in a stationary position so you can use it manually. On the passenger side turn the hex bolt counter clockwise to release the latch and return it to the closed door position.
Now you have a shoulder harness system that is NOT automatic but it WORKS. You will have to manually latch the shoulder harness in addition to the lap belt. A TWO STEP process just like the older Toyotas. If you really want to fix the automatic system then you need to take apart the doors to get at the track and cables and motor--NOT EASY. Or you can let dealer fix for two hundred dollars each !
GO HERE. It shows the procedure for changing out the complete alternator, but the belt procedure is in there also. You don't have to remove all the stuff mentioned in the instructions. Just loosen the alternator bolts, disconnect the electrical connector and remove and replace the belt. No big deal. Good luck.
