The short answer is yes. There is not much inside a seat belt that is repairable. Your best bet would be to head for an auto salvage yard and pick up a decent used one. Hope this helps.

My automatic seatbelt doesnt work anymore. i have a 1990 accord lx 5-speed and it used to get stuck have way and know it wont recline at all. is it a bad fuse or the computer? i disconnected the seatbelt...


If both passengers and drivers side retractable belts have stopped moving, then it's likely the controller that's located under the passengers seat has gone bad. If only one side has stopped retracting and moving then that side motor has probably gone bad.

Driver side seatbelt won't retract.


Seat belts cannot be fixed for safety reasons. If there's nothing obvious blocking the action of the belt then the only fix is to replace it entirely. If you get a replacement from the scrapyard then do not take it from one which has suffered impact damage.

I have a saturn ion 3 and my driver side seat belt wont come out of the retracter


I would take it to your local Saturn or GM dealer, most componets like seatbelts are covered under the Factory Warranty still. There is really no other way to fix it as the internal retractor is jammed and those parts are Non-Servicable and the entire Seat Belt Assembly will need to be replaced.

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.

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
