Rear seatbelt retracted and locked, won't come out

On my 2005 Uplander, the rear middle seatbelt has a locking mechanism. It retracted all of the way, and now is locked and will not come out. It has a top that pops off, but it is too small to get my hands in to see if I can release something. Help.

SOURCE: 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.

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.

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.

The back left seat seems to be stuck due to the locking of the middle seatbelt. Any idea on how to fix that?


When a seatbelt locks up it is usually due to dirt or corrosion in the automatic locking mechanism. The mechanism can't release because it is under tension. If you get into the cover that houses the release mechanism for the seatbelt, you may be able to hit it with a little wd-40. You do have to release that tension so that the lock will spring back to the open position and allow the seatbelt to retract. Try the lube. Sometimes the galvanized coating on the internal parts causes a seize.

Release retracted seatbelt


The safety belts are sensible to release speed (u have to release it kinda smooth).Also they are sensibile to car inclination (lean) may not release whel when rise/fall position.If locked,u may have to shake a little the belt so the locking spring/balls to unlock.Eventualy ,when driving it can release by itself.One thing is for shure:no sudden moves:it locks again (as in the impact scenario)Cheers

How to stop the chime on seatbelt on 2005 dodge dakota


Are you wearing your seatbelt when it chimes? If not, wearing your seatbelt will shut the chime off. If it chimes when you have it on, the switch inside the seatbelt locking mechanism may not be functioning properly, and the mechanism may need replaced. Look at the wiring next to your seat and follow the wires that leave the locking mechanism. They travel under the seat and plug into a wiring connector near the rear of the seat. Make sure it is plugged in and check the wires for damage.

Liftgate on 2005 uplander won't open


The locking mechanism on the rear lift gate for the Chevy Uplander has some plastic and rubber-coated parts that can get jammed. If you can pull back the panel from the inside top near the glass, you can reach down and try to spray some silicone lubricant into the lock. This could help get those parts unstuck so they spring back when you pull on the handle latch from the outside. Once you get the rear hatch open, I recommend taking out the locking mechanism and thoroughly lubricating it. Your rear lift gate will start to release very easily from then on.

Far rear wall seatbelts are locked.


Hi,I am guessing you haven't used these belts for a while.Quite often they will wind themselves up with normal car movement and lock.Grab the belt and pull as hard as you can(stretch it).It should come free.

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.
