Center rear seat belt not retracting

My 98 corolla's center rear belt will not retract-it has seen very little use. How does one remove the assembly from the rear deck? I do not want to rip and tear at it and have to buy new unless reqiured.
Thanks Bob

How do I remove power antenna from 1992 300 zx


pop the rear deck lid and remove the right rear plastic trunk cover. To do this you will remove the small plastic piece that is directly in front of the right rear tail light. Then remove the big plastic screw that retains the center plastic deck lid cover. Now remove the three 10mm nuts that keep the right rear plastic cover secured. Remove the right rear plastic cover. Be careful as it can crack if you put too much pressure on it. Look inside and to the right rear where the antenna mast comes up. You will see a small 10mm nut that holds the antenna mast to the body. Take that nut off. This will release the outer body cover from the inner cover. Remove the outer body cover and then remove the two screws from the OUTSIDE of the body cover. Now follow the antenna body down and you will see two or three additional small nuts that hold the antenna assembly metal bracket in place. Remove these. Unplug the antenna co-ax cable from the input. It just slides out. Unplug the antenna connection as well. This is the jack that has the power wires. You will also need to unscrew the ground wire from the inner body frame. There might be a nut on top of the actual antenna mast. If so, just unscrew it. The entire antenna assembly will now lift out. It's a mildly tight fit but you don't need to be too gentle in this step. Normally the problem is the antenna belt has broken inside the antenna assembly and there is no hope of replacing that belt. You have to replace the entire assembly. I found mine on Craigslist from a guy parting his totaled Z. May it rest in peace. His loss - my gain! Typical price is $65, maybe you can talk him down to $50. Installation is the above process in reverse.

2. Inspect the accessory drive belt and belt tensioner assembly.
If there is any roughness to either of the belt tensioner assembly bearings or any sign
of damage, scoring, or glazing on the accessory drive belt, replace BOTH the belt
tensioner assembly and the accessory drive belt.
3. Remove the drive belt.

A. Remove the engine under
cover RH.
B. Remove the drive belt.
a. Turn the drive belt tensioner
clockwise to relieve tension on
the belt, and then remove
the belt.
b. Carefully return the tensioner
to the unloaded position.
NOTE:
􀀀 When retracting the tensioner, turn it
clockwise SLOWLY in 3 seconds or
more. Do NOT apply force rapidly.
􀀀 After the tensioner is retracted all
the way, do NOT apply more force
than is necessary.
2ZZ–GE:
A. Remove the engine under
cover RH.
B. Remove the wire
harness protector.

How change a belt


the serpentine belt of the 98 corolla is difficult to get to cause theres so little room between the engine and the fender wall, but at the top of the engine on the passenger side, theres a small, black and silver compression spring, two bolts through it follow it down to the tensioner pulley, my bolt on the tensioner pully was stripped so i removed the compression spring assembly completely, yeah its tuff, but possible, if you can avoid it, then avoid it, but thats the key to getting that belt off or on. hope this helps good luck

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.

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
