Sorry the belt retractors are sealed and cannot be repaired, you need to replace the belt.

The mechanism is located behind the plastic trim panel that covers the pillar. You'll have to remove a couple of screws to get it loose.

Remove seat belt


Hi Ray, Removal of the seat belts requires removal of the seats. Adjust the front seats to the fully backwards position and remove the fixing bolts and then unhook rails at the rear.You will notice a wire cable attached to each seat used to adjust the belt shoulder hight. This must also be disconnected. On later model vehicles there is an automatic retraction unit which pulls the driver and or passenger back into the seat in the event of the air bags being deployed. These connections must also be removed. If seats are electrically operated unplug all connectors. Remove seats and then gently remove plastic door pillar covers. (These are in two pieces for each front belt.) Removal will leave the fixing bolts of retractable part of the seat belt exposed. The buckle side is fixed with one bolt and has an electrical connection which must be disconnected. Hope this is of help? Regards John

Are you trying to say the seat belt retractor is stuck? This is in the front seat?
If it's anything like my Tahoe, you need to remove the plastic panel that covers the retractor (carefully - don't break the clips or you won't be able to put it back on). Take a large flat head screwdriver and slide it under the part where the seat belt coils up, and find a little tab - push it with the screwdriver. As long as the seat belt is not twisted up, it should retract.

1998 dodge ram 1500, front seats belts retracted and will not release. What do I check? Dealership said would have to replace the front seats. This truck only has 33,000 miles and garage kept. Please...


This may be a problem with the catch and release gear where the seat belt rolls up. The mechanism is supposed to catch only when the belt is tugged fast. Usually if you **** the belt back and forth a few times then pull really really slow the belt should release. If it does not then remove the plastic covering for the spool and look for foreign objects or bent parts.

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.
