The plastic cover should be able to be removed. There is a ratchet mechanism for the seat belt, after removing the cover, you maybe able to free it up to get the belt loose, some WD-40 may help.

My seatbelt wont lock


Sounds like it needs replacing. A body repair man sold me a good used one. He showed me how to repair it. The spring in the unit itself broke. Before you do anything squirt a little WD40 inside the part to make sure it's not just stuck open.

My pasenger side front seatbelt wont come out its


the safest thing to do is replace the belt (either from a junk yard or oem replacement). But before you do that, i have had some luck with spaying liquid wrench/compressed air down into the assembly while gently tugging on the strap. You can try to disassemble the unit but, there is a very high likelihood that you will either break something or it wont function properly afterwords (i.e. the clutch wont engage when it pulled fast). So if you do plan on taking it apart, be ready to buy a new one. What i have seen many times; inside the assembly there is a ball that floats in a cup, if the cup get clogged with crud, the ball wont disengage the clutch, clean out the bowl the ball sits in and it should work properly again. Hope this helps!

I have a seat belt stuck on the front passenger side of a mercedes benz e 230 1996 model what do i do to release it


make sure it isnt twisted untwist as neccessary, pull it out and try and let it retract, if this works and it unjams try washing the seat belt with a mild soap and water solution. if this doesnt help and it remains stuck seatbelt may have to be replaced.

'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.

Trying to find the code for the keyless entry key pad, its on the computer module, but i cant find the module


I have a Ford Explorer XLs and I just found my security code. The keyless entry module was behind the lower plastic panel on the passenger side rear panel right below the seat belt height adjuster. Not the panel with the seatbelt adjuster but the one below it. No tools were needed and it took me all of 5 minutes. Just pop off the front of the panel closest to the door and pull it back. Use a light and you can see the large 5 digit code on top of the module. Thanks very much to the people that contribute to this forum....

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.

Saturn sc 2 seatbelt fuse


The fuse is in the center console, left side of passenger footwell. It is labelled PREST. for passive restraints. Possibly check the restraint module located in the center console, just under the E-brake lever.
