My 1999 Buick Century has the same problem. Shanat's solution works for most cars, but not in this case. As Three4Preid wrote, the strap is already back inside as far as it will go. Has anyone found a solution for this yet???

In regards to the previous solution you can't gentle feed it back because its stuck and there is no slack, it won't release at all.

Try parking on a level surface, then gently feed the belt back where it comes from, very gently pull it back out as if you were putting it on. hope this helps

The right bank is the front. View your engine from the pulley/belt end.

How do I remove the driver side seat belt latch?

The seat belt bolts are some of the toughest bolts I've ever removed.
You can use some PB Blaster if it's rusted. What you are really going to need is a large breaker bar or a pipe to lengthen the handle of your socket wrench for increased leverage . Worst comes to worst a torch always works.

Repair seat belt latch - stuck- 1998 buick park-

Seat belts are usually not repairable.The only thing that can be done is to check and make sure nothing is stuck in it or that it is not twisted.You have the kind that is in the seat back itself.These are a little more difficult to remove from the seat because it is so easy to break the plastic trim covers.Best thing to do if not familiar with auto repair to go to the dealer or auto repair shop that you trust and have them repair it.Good luck.

The right passenger seat belt will not pull out. It seems to be stuck in the "housing "for the belt on the side floor of the vehicle

Take off cover and check it out. Worst case New Seat Belt Assy and you will need the special torx type driver socket just for seat belts to remove it

My Buick Regal 98 back seat belt (passenger side) is stuck. Is moving a little bit but that's all, can not use it to restrain a passenger. What should I do? How to take out the original seat belt box? It's...

Is the belt twisted? If you pull it all the way out it will engage the child lock. If the child lock is engaged and the belt is twisted, you have to try to feed the belt back in far enough to disable the child lock
