Same problem here...belt stuck and pulled so tight against the top of seat when in the upright position, I would have to keep seat in "down" position for fear the tension might cause permanent creases in leather. Had brother loosen the bolt located at the base of seatbelt where the back of seat and botton split (hard to get to and tough to loosen) which seemed to have solved issue but a few months later after using it to strap in niece's car seat it happen AGAIN!
Frustrated, had brother completely remove bolt rendering belt useless (fortunately backseat is almost never used anyway.)
I'm going to check for any safety recalls since this doesn't appear now to be a fluke or isolated problem w/ just mine.

If you find a fix or recall please let me know & I'll do the same.

The back left seat seems to be stuck due to the locking of the middle seatbelt. Any idea on how to fix that?


When a seatbelt locks up it is usually due to dirt or corrosion in the automatic locking mechanism. The mechanism can't release because it is under tension. If you get into the cover that houses the release mechanism for the seatbelt, you may be able to hit it with a little wd-40. You do have to release that tension so that the lock will spring back to the open position and allow the seatbelt to retract. Try the lube. Sometimes the galvanized coating on the internal parts causes a seize.

2002 tahoe back seat seatbelt is twisted and won't retract. The bolt holding the paneling on that covers the pulley is stripped and wont come out. Looking for two solutions: how to get that screw


TO get that screw out you need to use a tool that looks like a nail puller and you put it under the screw head to lift while you unscrew it. Once you get to the mechanism for the seatbelt, you should be able to free it because it will he able to have slack and the dogs will loosen up. Be mindful of airbags and seatbelt tensioners that are in that area though

I hit a ditch and both my airbags deployed and now i cant move my seat belts


inside your seatbelts there are small explosives known as pre-tensioners, when you crash these pre tensioners go off and pull you back into the seat as part of the SRS( supplemented restraint system) which means that aswel as new airbags you also need new seatbelts for your car.

'06 Volvo V50 drivers seat belt is jammed, there is no play in the belt and the ratchet locks immediatly no matter how gently it's pulled. Same problem with passenger side the day before but it righted...


I solved this on my 95 volvo 850 glt as follows:

pull the seatbelt pilar cover off from the door jamb. this runs vertically up the pilar between the front an back door (beside the front seats. Once opened loosen the belt by gently pulling the belt upward toward the roof. You'll have to do this sometimes in small increments. Once the seatbelt is pulled out all the way, spray small amount of lubricant into the joint where at the top of the belt spool. Also use a screw driver to push spool upward while pulling the belt. At first it's only going to release a little but eventually the lubricant will work its way into the seam at the top of the belt spool and loosen up the stuck inertia catch. Until it completely loosens you might have to remove the pilar cover again and work the seatbelt out (also use the screw driver technique described above) in order to use the seatbelt. When parking, I would relatch the seatbelt and pull the slack up around the back of the head rest. After a day or so it worked normally.

good luck and don't give up.

Seatbelt light on


There is a tiny switch under the **** area of the seat that tells the car someone is sitting there... and a tiny switch in the seatbelt CLICK mechanism. These only have 2 wires which go down to the floor, alongside the running board and up to the dash. The switch nder your **** is NormallyOPEN and CLOSES (makes contact) when someone weighing 50lb or more sits in the seat (smart huh) It could be bent, broken, come loose from its moorings or have a wire loose... At the same time, the passenger seat also has shcu a switch and it might be STUCK or shorted. Same for the seatbelt CLICK mechanisms on both sides. If you don't like loosening seat bolts, pulling up carpeting and removing the inside panels, etc. what we call 'troubleshooting'. find someone that does - or take it to a dealer.
