I decided to take it to the dealer (expert) rather than pay money to an on-line chat. Thanks for the offer. It would be nice if you could have such a set up where on a one-time basis, provide solution free of charge or on the honor system of if it works pay $19.99 or so to become a member...just a thought.

1996 Volvo 850 the seat belt won't release so I can't put on my seatbelt when driving. Is this expensive to fix.


The locking mechanism is plastic and usually brakes apart inside. It needs to be replaced. Because it is a 96 model, I would not trust used parts. Buy new from Volvo. They run in the $200 range for the part.

A family member has a Volvo 850 (1996) and had a crash. Now the seat belt pretensioners have locked the seat belts solid. I've tried resetting the ECU, took it to Volvo and they wanted to replace the whole...


Hi,

That volvo and most of modern cars today uses a small explosive charge, placed in that retaining gear of seat belts. It will be activated to a collision.

To activate that seat belt, you must replace the whole retaining gear with that same type of safety precaution system.

The only way you could get a cheaper normal seatbelt is to replace it with an ordinary retaining gear lock, mostly Japanese seat belt or the older pre 1990 type that has no explosive charge.


Hope that clears everything and tightens up your problem!


Thanks for using Fixya!

'06 Volvo V50 drivers seat belt is jammed, there is no play in the belt and the ratchet locks immediatly no matter how gently it's pulled. Same problem with passenger side the day before but it righted...


I solved this on my 95 volvo 850 glt as follows:

pull the seatbelt pilar cover off from the door jamb. this runs vertically up the pilar between the front an back door (beside the front seats. Once opened loosen the belt by gently pulling the belt upward toward the roof. You'll have to do this sometimes in small increments. Once the seatbelt is pulled out all the way, spray small amount of lubricant into the joint where at the top of the belt spool. Also use a screw driver to push spool upward while pulling the belt. At first it's only going to release a little but eventually the lubricant will work its way into the seam at the top of the belt spool and loosen up the stuck inertia catch. Until it completely loosens you might have to remove the pilar cover again and work the seatbelt out (also use the screw driver technique described above) in order to use the seatbelt. When parking, I would relatch the seatbelt and pull the slack up around the back of the head rest. After a day or so it worked normally.

good luck and don't give up.

Driver side seat belt is fully retracted and will not release.


Try giving it a solid tap with something hard (screw driver handle) while jiggling the seatbelt.

Rear passenger side seat belt is stuck, and I can't work out how to get to the mechanism without damaging the seat.


If it is a 850 sedan like mine then you'll have to remove the speaker covers and then pull up the rear deck cover, then you can get to the mechanism.
