SOURCE: seat belt locked in place

There is a recall on this problem, so best thing to do is go to the GM dealer and have the seat belt replaced for free under the recall notice. Good luck and hope this helps.

SOURCE: rear seat down and wont go back up; locked middle belt

middle seat belt shouldn't have anything to do with it. The seat locks down for stowage in the rear cargo area. you can pull the release handle on the back of the seat to release it back into the up position.

If it's not a coin, look inside the buckle again, compare it with a properly working latch. If you see something inside the broken latch that looks like it may be protruding out from the back, try pushing it back with a flathead or key, then pop the push button back up with the same tool you used... I have to do this each time I get out of my truck because the spring is broken. It still should work fine, it's just missing a spring that reset the latch to it's resting position. If you're still skeptical about it though, it's like a 25 dollar fix with installation.

Middle seat belt buckle tip for booster seats, car seats, and large humans.


In trying to fit a booster seat into my 2004 Honda CR-V, I realized that the CRV has the belt buckle in the middle of the seat. This is a big problem for someone using a child seat in the middle seat as the buckle receptacle is completely covered by the booster seat. I thought about buying an extender but realized it wouldn't completely solve the problem. After much thought I came to the conclusion that the buckle receptacle could be moved to a new location without compromising any safety of the belt. I first pulled the buckle receptacle all the way out and then cut the fabric to enlarge the hole from which it protrudes from the seat. Then I pushed it through the hole and back into the seat with the head pointing towards the window and outer edge of the seat. After flipping the window seat out of the way I was able to peel the fabric away from the bottom edge of the middle seat enough to reach in and retrieve the belt receptacle. It was a little tight but I was able to buckle the belt and use the seat belt to pull the receptacle through this new "hole" and VOLIA the belt receptacle is now in a better position to the side of the middle seat. You can now used a booster or car seat or put a fully grown human in this seat and buckle with ease.

Broken seat belt buckle


If I had the problem I would look at a junkyard or on line at e-bay for a replacement. You will need to get the buckle and the belt that it is attached to that goes down to the floor down through the crack in the seat.
Remember the buckle receiver is made for the certain belt in the front and rear seats. I have often tried to put the wrong belt in a buckle and it would not fit. ( Example: the right belt goes in the right buckle.)
Be blessed.

Back seat belt wont lock


Check to be sure it is the right belt and latch combination.
I believe you have 3 seat belts in the rear. The latch for the two side ( door) belts is not the same as the one in the middle.
VERY often, one of the latches will fall down in between the seat rest and the back rest of the seat, often from dis-use.
This happens on all cars.
You should have 3 latches on short straps in the middle of the rear seat.
Be blessed.

Seat belt will not latch and hold


the reciever mechanism is probably just a bit dry and sticky.
all you should need to cure this is a tin of spray lubricant (WD40 or simillar).
take the seat belt reciever.
spray a good dose of lubricant into the slot you put the buckle into. press the release button 10-15 times. insert and remove the buckle as normal about 10 times, pressing the release button.

spray again with lubricant and repeat above steps. it is a good idea to do all of the seat belts in the car as the others may need lubricating as well.

if it still is not operating properly, then i would recommend replacing the unit.
they are not servicable and they are a key safety device in your car.

The pass. side auto seatbelt stays in the fastened position


Really need the model to give precise diagnosis.But generally if the clamp is not releasing the buckle, there is either a fault in the clamp mechanism or a foreign object is lodged inside it like a small coin.Try pushing the buckle in toward the clamp while pressing the release button. Some are hooked up to seat belt pretension circuits and the fastened position you mention may be that the innertia wont unreel the belt to put it on.Changing the angle of the car usually will release it,otherwise it will need replacing.
I hope this helps or get back to me with further findings and detail.

Ford Escape middle rear seat belt stuck


Hey everyone--after searching in vain for an entire 10 days, and absolutely REFUSING to pay Ford's $100 diagnosis fee, and their $300 replacement suggestion ($400??), I decided to figure this out myself. And I did. Do the following to let loose the tension that has kept your seat stuck in the down position (though my truck is a 2008 Ford Escape, I have a strong feeling this is the case with any vehicle):

1. Remove the seat bottoms (which are folded forward and upward against the back of the front seats). To do this, find the bars that are bracketed into the floor. There may or may not be a little yellow lever on one of the two brackets. If so, flip it and slide the bar out. If it stops, pull the other side out. Doing this should allow you to completely remove the seat from the car. Repeat with other side.

Now you should have plenty of room to work. Move front seats forward, and you've got even more.

2. Remove your back seats entirely. (Sorry- it's a must.) For many, you will require either one or both of these:
One Torx T-50 socket to remove T-50 bolt (which bolts seat belt latches to the floor)
One Torx T-55 (which bolts the folding seat into the bracket that bolts seats to the floor).
One socket extension (tip: the extension gives you much more torque, and its easier to remove bolts) and
One a 5/8" socket. (See continuation after following tip.)

TIP: if you have a 40/60 split, you have to remove the 40 first! This will allow you room to move around the 60 seat and its stuck belt.

Continued:
Remove bolts that bolt bracket to car floor (this is the 40 seat). I believe there's two: 1 directly below the seat, and 1 that also bolts the 60 seat (you'll be using the 5/8" here)-- Don't hold me to it, though, as I've seen some different stuff. Pull seat out of the way to avoid potential damage. NOTE: THOSE BRACKETS ARE SHARP. WATCH THE LEATHER/SEAT MATERIAL-- AND YOUR HANDS.)

2. Remove bolts on the 60. Though the top part of your seat is down, you should be able to the bolt that keeps the bracket to the floor beneath where the seat cushion would be (and where the upper part of the seat is laying flat). A ratchet would probably be best for this since you can keep the socket in place and wind the thing completely out. I should say here that my seat couldn't have been tighter to the floor. If I got mine out, I'm sure you can, too.

Now here come the tricky, but verrrrry easy parts. They are vital.

1. Now that the brackets are off of the floor, the 60 seat should now be free-floating in your hands, but tethered by the T50 bolt that is keeping the seatbelt buckle to the floor. Remove it. Now you should be able to remove the seat altogether. I had to bring mine inside where it wasn't 15 degrees in my garage, but I believe you'll do these parts in the next five minutes. Do this next:

2. TIP the 60 SEAT UPRIGHT (just like it would if things were back to the normal operational mode). This is VITAL. If you cannot fix it with two or three tugs from here (don't waste more time than this-- the final part is coming), then do this next:

3. Find the latch on the back of the seat that locks onto the latch of the car. Using two gloved fingers (or tools), press the latch inward until it's in the LOCKED position (fooling it into thinking you've put it up and latched into into the truck bracket).
This should have also reset the button or lever that you used to unlock the seat in the first place. Now give your belt a tug. It should come loose like normal.

IMPORTANT NOTE: seatbelt tensioners rely on gravity (thing momentum during a crash) that locks the belt. If the seat is not sitting UPRIGHT (like in normal use mode), that mechanism is going to obey gravity if it is tilted backward or forward (which is why the seat got in the downward position to begin with) and lock.

That's it. Bolt the seats back in, and go buy yourself $400 worth of rewards.
