SOURCE: my back seat middle seatbelt is locked and the

That just happened to our 05 equinox. We have car seats so one of the seats was reclined just a bit. This will cause the seatbelt to lock. We took out the car seat, folded down the other seat and folded it back. It cause the locked seat to release and unfold.

2002 tahoe back seat seatbelt is twisted and won't retract. The bolt holding the paneling on that covers the pulley is stripped and wont come out. Looking for two solutions: how to get that screw

TO get that screw out you need to use a tool that looks like a nail puller and you put it under the screw head to lift while you unscrew it. Once you get to the mechanism for the seatbelt, you should be able to free it because it will he able to have slack and the dogs will loosen up. Be mindful of airbags and seatbelt tensioners that are in that area though

If the seat belt will not retract then it is either chaffing against something restricting its movement or the rewind mechanism is defective. Pull the belt out to its full length to see if there are any twists in it. If so simply untwist it. Does it retract at all? If not, then it needs replacement. If it partially retracts, you need to gain access to its wind up mechanism to check it there is some obstruction preventing it from fully retracting. If no apparent obstruction, then it needs replacement.

2004 chevy tahoe, the seatbelts constantly retract and strangle passengers.

you should pull the belts all the way out to make certain that they are not folded over themselves-check to make sure there is not something in the locking mechanism causing this, and if necessary take the vehicle to the dealer to have them check it-usually safety related devices are covered under extended warranty terms and it may get repaired for free.

Remove the "loose" end(not connected to the mechanism) of the belt from its mounting point. Let the belt retract a little and then try pulling it again, this time slowly. Unroll the belt completely and make sure it has not twisted in the reel. If the belt is completely rolled into the reel, pull as hard as you can and release it slightly then pull slowly again. Dismantling the reel is not recommended. This is a safety critical unit. You dont want it failing because you reassembled it incorrectly.

The front seatbelt apparently has been pulled out too far, possibly twisted and won't retract. Is there an easy way to fix this?

can you pull it any more just to straighten it to retract it,or can you remove the trim on the pillar to see whats going on as you may need to do just that if you cant persuade it to retract,make sure the car is on level ground as angles and sudden movement effects them,but you may need to pull the trim off,worst case scenario,replace unit

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.
