Replace it. This is a sign that the spring has long since died. At this point with a weak spring, the belt retractor is useless and will provide no protection.

Release retracted seatbelt


You have to unbolt it on the bottom; it is one bolt holding it on the bottom underneath the seat. Once you get it released, it should be fine. You will have to remember to pull some slack out and tie a knot in the belt whenever you fold the seats down.

Recently purchased, used Mazda 3 driver side seat belt is completely slack and will not retract. If I remove panel that is between front and back driver side doors to attempt to fix will that damage panel?...


The panel is attached with plastic clips, if you damage them replacements are available. Chances are you won"t be able to repair the belt retractor as it"s a sealed mechinism.

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.

Seat Belt will not retract on 98 Pre Runner


When you replaced the belt did you make sure that the position of the belt assembly was the same. A slight misaliengment can affect the return mechanism. Pull the full length of the belt from belt coil Slacken the securing bolt moving the assembly will most likely allow the return of the belt.
If it was an old unit perhaps a drop of WD40 will release the mechanism.
Hope this helps
