    The belt mechanisim is on the side panel-- the belt is now all rolled onto the roller- but will not pull out. It is "locked" like when you jam on the brakes, etc. It is detatched from the florr- so the whol belt is on the roller now- it is no jaed- it just will not let the belt release

    99% of seatbelt problems I've seen were caused by change, small toys etc getting stuck in the mechanism. remove cover and look in there.

You can remove the seat belt and disassemble the retractor to readjust the springs inside. However, I suggest just purchasing a used or new seat belt as this is much safer than tearing apart the other one.

Subaru how to unlock seat belt


Not quite sure what you mean by got around passenger seat. But if the seat is blocking the belt from retracting, then you only need to unbolt the seat from the floor enough to manipulate the belt around the seat. Or just completely unbolt it all the way, you just need a 14mm deep socket and a ratchet. But if you mean the belt just won't retract, then you'll need a new retractor assembly. I hope this info helps!

2008 chevy uplander seat belt wont retract how do i fix it


Please check if your seat belt has "Retractors" or "Automatic Retractor".

Follow these steps to determine if you have a retractor system that will hold car seat securely or your seat belt won't retract as should be:

A. Pull belt all the way out.

b. Allow belt to retract about 6 inches (15 cm).

c. Pull out on belt again.

If belt is locked and you cannot pull the belt out any further, you have an Automatic Locking;

If you pull the belt again all the way out and won't return to normal operation, then the mechanism is damaged, but try first the "retractor" lock to be sure. By Federal Law, nobody will sale a seat belt in a junk yard, try the dealer or order thru the dealer the whole seat belt or the mechanism. I hope that is just a matter of the automatic retractor; you can see this information in your car's manual. Try and we will see.

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.

Retractable seat belt wont close


Is this a NEW seat belt?  Or a junkyard part... Per the Toyota 1988 Repair Manual - the belt is allowed to be pulled out at a tile of 15 degrees or less; and cannot be pulled out at over 45 degrees of tilt.

Your problem is the belt is not retracting.  The manual states to replace the assembly.  It also states: "Whenver installing a new belt assembly, verify proper operation before installation."

If a new part does not have proper operation; have it replaced. If this is a 'used'  new part - get a NEW seat belt.

Seatbelt won't retract


1)move the plastic cover over the seat belt out of the way to gain access to the two mounting bolts for the seat belt mechanism. Use a 10mm wrench and a 14mm wrench and remove the two bolts holding the seat belt mechanism to the body. Use a small drill bit or small screwdriver and make one hole in the plastic cover on each side of the seat belt mechanism (the covers say "do not remove plastic cover". Spray lots of wd40 in each hole. Then exercise the seat belt. When the mechanism allows the belt to be retracted, retract the belt all the way out and exercise the seat belt. Reinstall mechanism with both mounting screws in original position and put plastic cover back in place. Good luck. New seat belt costs $100.00 from dealer and are hard to find working in junk yards. I have fixed several of them this way.
