    Thank you so much for responding, gdtrucker2...



    Just found the following information out at 8:00 this morning. This may be of use to people whose seatbelts are 'acting up'... it's federal law that seatbelts are replaced free of charge. Go to a dealer and get a new one.



    My mechanic told me it's not common knowledge because that's how they can make money and they are not obligated to tell customers about it. He does.

You will need to remove the molding around the input slot for the belt.view the actual receiver and see if there is a lock that is preventing it from retracting.

There should be a mechanism in the door jamb near-to the seatbelt. If equipped, push on it while jerking seatbelt until it retracts. If not equipped, close door firmly while jerking seatbelt to activate retract.

Try giving it a solid tap with something hard (screw driver handle) while jiggling the seatbelt.

I have a 2006 Ford Explorer and the passenger seatbelt won't retract; so passenger cannot use the seatbelt. Subsequently, the seatbelt chimer never goes off. How can I correct this?


will have to take the side panel off where the belt is located make sure no twists are present. if not pull it hard and see if it retracts, if it still does not retract you may have to replace the unit.
the retraction spring in the unit is broken, or the lock mechanism has failed.

99 maxima rear drivers side seatbelt does not retract.


Inertia reels get stuck permanantly if pulled out suddenly over time or after an accident. You may be able to remove it or pull lightly out with little tension and tap on it, if not you may need to replace the inertia reel.
