    can't mussed be replaced but until then as long as the belt fits the person driving without any slack it will protect them in a crash

SOURCE: 2002 Toyota Solara Convertible seat belts not retracting

The front seatblet retractor springs have weakened. Unfortunatly, there are no "user serviceable parts" on them. They would have to be replaced. How many miles is on it? If you have low mileage, the Toyota Customer Experience Center may provide you some assistance, as the belt replacements are quite expensive. I'd call the CEC and explain your dilemma. Here is the number: 1-800-331-4331

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: my drivers side seat belt is not retracting on my 2005 hyundai el

Most of the time this happens because the belt gets twisted behind the B pillar trim panel. The lower portion of the panel that the belt goes behind can be removed enough to see behind it by gently pulling outward, it is held in place with plastic clips. If the belt is twisted up in there, untwist it and snap the panel back in place.

91 honda ex, passenger front seat belt is not working and the light in the dash board keeps lit, I have check the fuses for it, and all the connection to the belt and it seems all intact...any advise?


Your 1991 model Accord has automatic front retracting shoulder belts and, more than likely, the power retractor motor has gone bad on the passenger side front. If the shoulder seat belt is not in the retracted position, up close against the seat, when the car is running, the seat belt light will stay lit on your dash. Have the seat belt motor inspected and replaced if necessary.

My seatbelts feed out properly and retract


There is a ball inside that when you brake moves and locks the seat belt. Your best bet is to drive and see if it locks when you brake hard. If not replace it. Some cars wont lock when you pull on them only when inertia takes over do they lock.

Well the front driver seat belt no longer goes back it is one of those automatic one in a 1991 Honda Accord LX. The one in the back no longer retracts, so it does no good to try to use it.


Try pulling the belt out all the way, get a vacuum cleaner and try to clean the inside the best you can. Then take a can of WD40 and with the small red nozzel attached to the spray button, spray the WD40 on each of the sides (with the belt pulled out), and let the belt try to retract, keep trying this multiple times and see if it loosens up.

I did this the other day. I think there were 1 or 2 screws holding it in place that you have to remove the bottom part of the back seat to get at them.
