Remove the "loose" end(not connected to the mechanism) of the belt from its mounting point. Let the belt retract a little and then try pulling it again, this time slowly. Unroll the belt completely and make sure it has not twisted in the reel. If the belt is completely rolled into the reel, pull as hard as you can and release it slightly then pull slowly again. Dismantling the reel is not recommended. This is a safety critical unit. You dont want it failing because you reassembled it incorrectly.

Pt cruiser stuck middle seat belt

The problem:
The set belt stop has been lost so the seat belt retracts too far when the seat is laid flat. When laid flat the release mechanism lock as it should when not level. So the seat cannot be raised up as the belt is too tight and locked.
The Solution:
1) Push the two little clips to release and remove the headrests.
Pull the grey lever on the right of the seat base, lift seat base up and forward toward the front seat..
2) See two red capped leversat the back of the two seat hinges and lever them to the upward position, this releases the seat.
Rock the very heavy seat unit upwards and lift complete unit upwards.
3) Take it out of the car and turn 180% so that the back of the seat and base are in the upward position and the seat belt will pull out as it should
4) Replace the missing belt locking stop (I used a tie pin permanently fixed using super glue).
5) Fold seat back down and test then either re-fit seat unit or leave out to decrease fuel consumption..

The seat belt on the driver side is lock. i cant pull it from the base. I cant pull it to buckel up. how can i unlock it. or how do i unsamble the seat belt?? do you have a drawing how to do it??

Usually when that happens the Seat Belt Assembly need to be replaced, they are Non-Servicable, meaning that there are no internal replacement parts that can be replaced or fixed.

The backseat seat belt ,when you pull it out it rolls over and locks up where it won't come out or go in?

Remove the seat belts from the floor and seat. Use a screw driver to open the seat belt casing and clean it out. Often seat belts can get stuck when coming out or going in, if there is debris in there.

The only other thing to look out for, is to check the spring. If the spring has stopped functioning, it's more worth your time to get a new one then to try and fix the old one.

Seat belt problem in Toyota Corolla 2001

There are supposed to be three locks. It is common for seats like this for the lock to fall to the back or under side of the seat. Try taking the bench cushion off and see if you can find it. Did you buy this car used? if so and you cant find the seat belt take it to them. It is supposed to be there
