I just ordered one for a clients 02 9-3 Vert. It cost $400 brand new. be careful getting used units as used usually means the vehicle was in an accident. These cars have a pretension system in the belts which can only be used once. After an accident, the belts are usually junk and will set the airbag light off.

2008 chevy uplander seat belt wont retract how do i fix it


Please check if your seat belt has "Retractors" or "Automatic Retractor".

Follow these steps to determine if you have a retractor system that will hold car seat securely or your seat belt won't retract as should be:

A. Pull belt all the way out.

b. Allow belt to retract about 6 inches (15 cm).

c. Pull out on belt again.

If belt is locked and you cannot pull the belt out any further, you have an Automatic Locking;

If you pull the belt again all the way out and won't return to normal operation, then the mechanism is damaged, but try first the "retractor" lock to be sure. By Federal Law, nobody will sale a seat belt in a junk yard, try the dealer or order thru the dealer the whole seat belt or the mechanism. I hope that is just a matter of the automatic retractor; you can see this information in your car's manual. Try and we will see.

Air bag code 33 for a 2005 lincoln town car


2005 Towncar SRS Code 33 (3 flash + 3 flash, repeat this set for twice. then Beep 5 times pause x 5 = 25 beeps every 30min).

This means you have problem with left (Driver) side pretentioner (Seat belt retract system).
It doesn't mean physical belt or retract mechanism.It is just bomb wiring which is part of airbag system.
When airbag deploy, passenger must stay tight in seat otherwise body lean to front then slam back to seat by airbag.
if belt is loose or delay to lock, passenger's body rocks back and forth.So, system use small bomb (Fire power) to lock and retract seat belt when airbag deploy.There is small bomb and igniter in part of Seat belt retractor.
Code 33 is warning for this part on 2005 Towncar.(older model is different meaning in Ford/Lincoln, it's possibly passenger side airbag system for earlier model)
Before you work for any part of Airbag system and touch any "Yellow connector", * *Disconnect battery (negative side is good enough) and wait at least 5 min to clear all power in system**.(Airbag store back up power for few minutes to be able to deploy even in case if power disconnected)
by the way, you should move your driver seat most forwarded position before you disconnect battery to make it easy to work with seat belt.
locate driver side seat belt retractor (in center pillar between front and rear door, you may have to fight with weather strip)

Locate Yellow connector on bottom of Seat belt retractor (it's called "Pretensioner")it is located on very bottom of rear side of retractor.
only one yellow connector. (make sure your battery is disconnected)
Check its physical connection or looseness.if connection looks fine, you may have to replace whole seat belt ($180-$200 in Lincoln dealer)
You can check if pretensionor is good or bad by regular tester, but unless you know how, I won't tell (because I don't wan't you to blow out pretentionor).

2000 S-40 Seat Belts cut into side panel when pulling in or out.


Most states have a department of automotive consumer affairs. I would check your state's online site's Department of Motor vehicles to file a complaint. The states are generally very good at helping the consumer on problems like yours. Let me know how they respond.
Thanks.

Both rear seat belts stopped retracting. How do i get to the mehanism to see if there's a broken spring or something?


There is a reset button, but I had this prob with 2 seat belts last year. would reset, but only temporary. had to replace both belts. very costly if you do this thru dealer. Find another mechanic. Have to replace the entire part, not just spring.

99 Toyota Camry one of the rear seat belts won't retract


You have to actually unbolt the belt holder behind the seat. Then from there you can check to see if the spring still works. You'll probably have to take the cap off it, wind the spring-load, then put the cap back on. If you can get to it, it's not too difficult. I recommend another pair of hands to help hold if they're available. You'll also want to make sure you've rolled the belt up as much as possible before before you coil the spring-load.

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
