You may have to remove the bolt that holds the buckle to the floor. Try to push the belt into the retractor and see if it frees up.

I assume you are saying it is in the locked mode. It has an automatic lock mode for holding a child seat. When the belt is pulled all the way out, it goes into locking mode. You will hear it ratchet when the belt starts going back in.



Section 01-20A: Restraints, Active 1999 Taurus, Sable Workshop Manual
DESCRIPTION AND OPERATION Safety Belt, Lap/Shoulder The dual locking mode retractor on the shoulder belt portion of the combination lap/shoulder safety belt for the front seat passenger and rear seat outboard passengers operates in two ways:

  1. In the vehicle sensitive (emergency locking) mode, the shoulder belt retractor will allow the occupant freedom of movement, locking tight only on hard braking, hard cornering or impacts of approximately 8 km/h (5 mph) or more. The front and rear outboard seat belt retractors can also be made to lock by pulling/jerking on the belt.
  1. In the automatic locking mode, the shoulder belt retractor will be automatically locked and remain locked when the combination lap/shoulder safety belt is buckled and does not allow the occupant freedom of movement. This mode provides tight lap/shoulder belt fit on the occupant and on a child safety seat or infant carrier installation restraint.
  1. When the combination lap/shoulder belt is unbuckled and allowed to retract completely, the retractor will switch to the vehicle sensitive (emergency) locking mode.

The automatic locking mode must be used when installing a child safety seat on the front passenger seat and rear outboard seats where dual locking retractors are provided

How do u fix a front seat seat belt retractor that is jammed inside the front right side of a 2006 trailblazer??


Some times you can't. However, using a long thin screwdriver and inserting it into the ratchet assembly you may be able to move the ratchet mechanism to release it. Look for any debris or a twist in the belt that may be causing the assembly to jamb

I can't figure out where the black retractor for the shoulder belts gets mounted. Stock belts. I took them out, but back in?


If you are referring to the front seat passenger seat belts, the shoulder belt retractors are mounted to the floor at the base of the driver and passenger side door pillars. They are usually hidden behind the pillar trim panel and the belt comes out thru a slot in the trim piece near the swivel.

2001 ford taurus passenger seat belt retractor will not pull out


I would say it is in the locking mechanism. Sometimes stuff can fall into the cover and block the locking mechanism. If you know how, take the cover off the retractor and see if anything has fallen in there. If this is not the problem, you may have a defective retractor. DO NOT try to dissassemble the retractor, it is like a jack in the box. The spring can and will jump out and you may be injured in some way. If you are not mechanically inclined, take it to a shop.
I hope this has been helpful.

Air bag code 33 for a 2005 lincoln town car


2005 Towncar SRS Code 33 (3 flash + 3 flash, repeat this set for twice. then Beep 5 times pause x 5 = 25 beeps every 30min).

This means you have problem with left (Driver) side pretentioner (Seat belt retract system).
It doesn't mean physical belt or retract mechanism.It is just bomb wiring which is part of airbag system.
When airbag deploy, passenger must stay tight in seat otherwise body lean to front then slam back to seat by airbag.
if belt is loose or delay to lock, passenger's body rocks back and forth.So, system use small bomb (Fire power) to lock and retract seat belt when airbag deploy.There is small bomb and igniter in part of Seat belt retractor.
Code 33 is warning for this part on 2005 Towncar.(older model is different meaning in Ford/Lincoln, it's possibly passenger side airbag system for earlier model)
Before you work for any part of Airbag system and touch any "Yellow connector", * *Disconnect battery (negative side is good enough) and wait at least 5 min to clear all power in system**.(Airbag store back up power for few minutes to be able to deploy even in case if power disconnected)
by the way, you should move your driver seat most forwarded position before you disconnect battery to make it easy to work with seat belt.
locate driver side seat belt retractor (in center pillar between front and rear door, you may have to fight with weather strip)

Locate Yellow connector on bottom of Seat belt retractor (it's called "Pretensioner")it is located on very bottom of rear side of retractor.
only one yellow connector. (make sure your battery is disconnected)
Check its physical connection or looseness.if connection looks fine, you may have to replace whole seat belt ($180-$200 in Lincoln dealer)
You can check if pretensionor is good or bad by regular tester, but unless you know how, I won't tell (because I don't wan't you to blow out pretentionor).

Seal belts on both front seats (driver side and passenger side) will not pull out of the retractor. Don't want a fine for not wearing belt but it won't work. No one seems to know how to fix it. ...


No one can fix it!

Don't you find that odd?

You remove the plastic seat belt retractor covers,
on the floor by the "B" Piller

If you need to replace them, the retractors I mean, there
is a special GM Torx Driver Bit for seat belts

I would play around with them to see what the issues are

IF THEY HAVE AN AIR BAG INVOLVED e.g. SRS
System integrated into the seat belts,disconnect the battery
(before) you even think of going near the covers

Seat belt retractor stuck, will not come out more than 8 inches


THERE IS A COUNTER WEIGHT INSIDE OF THE RETRACTOR THAT IS CAUSING YOUR PROBLEM. UNFORTUNATELY YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO FIX IT, UNLESS OF COURSE THERE IS SOMETHING STUCK INSIDE OF THE RETRACTOR.
