Make sure that the rear seats are properly locked into rear catches as this can stop your seatbels from working if ok then sounds like your seatbelt is faulty req new seatbelt.

C320 rear seat belt stuck


Unfortunetly the only repair for that issue is to replace the complete seat belt mechanism. Basically the internal winding mechanism has gone out and will not retract the seat belt.

Rear seat belt is stuck in recline position. I recline the rear seat to make room and I can not raise the seat back up. The seat belt is not allowing the seat to raise


The problem:
The set belt stop has been lost so the seat belt retracts too far when the seat is laid flat. When laid flat the release mechanism lock as it should when not level. So the seat cannot be raised up as the belt is too tight and locked.
The Solution:
1) Push the two little clips to release and remove the headrests.
Pull the grey lever on the right of the seat base, lift seat base up and forward toward the front seat..
2) See two red capped leversat the back of the two seat hinges and lever them to the upward position, this releases the seat.
Rock the very heavy seat unit upwards and lift complete unit upwards.
3) Take it out of the car and turn 180% so that the back of the seat and base are in the upward position and the seat belt will pull out as it should
4) Replace the missing belt locking stop (I used a tie pin permanently fixed using super glue).
5) Fold seat back down and test then either re-fit seat unit or leave out to decrease fuel consumption.. 2_5_2014_8_03_56_pm.jpg 5f6d2b58-2927-4184-9c82-d111e3a9591a.jpg e9f641fc-5fbc-4c21-a371-ff371d942b1a.jpg a357ac71-d6ed-4dc7-999c-04367d3d6e72.jpg

1997 Dodge 2500 4 wheel drive pickup - Both Front seat belts will not release. Stuck in retracted position. Fasten seat belt light is on... Both problems occurred at same time.


Seat belts lock up when the belt is pulled on as the pendulum is rocking, and it could have been released at this time on a hill. This would make the belt lock up. But it should not do that when it is coiled up as the spool is full and the lock is pushed out of the way. You may have to force it to release by pulling and jerking on the belt as you are standing out side of the truck, not moving! Use a flash light to check the pocket for debris....

Rear seatbelt stuck behind head rest in locked position


haha we know you didnt do it on purpose, without seeing your problem and the hard to describe issue, i can only recommend to maybe try folding the seat to the cargo position, if that helps. if not, then you will more than likely need to disassemble the rear quarter panel, and unbolt the seat belt retractor from the body of the vehicle. sorry but there is no other way

1998 Subaru Outback right rear seatbelt stuck.


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

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,
