    Seat belts are not repaired they are replaced, think about the liability of fooling with one in a shop and then having it malfunction, no you need to replace it.

I would consider replacing it as the tensioning mechanism may have become affected. This is a key component which makes the seat belt work in the situation that it is supposed to work.

The cost is around $150.

2000 Focus Seat Belt Retractor - Pleaes Help


I had the same issue with the rear seat belt. what my solution was taking the plastic cover off the top side that pulls the seat belt back in and notice that on these cars, they actually fold the seat belt at the very end to prevent tearing. therefore the seat belt was folded inside the re-tractor and got stuck. what i did for a solution was twisted the seat belt unfolding it by grabbing the other end behind the re-tractor and now it works. Try not to fully extend it next time...... if that doesn't work go to a junk yard 12 bucks replace the whole seat belt.

C320 rear seat belt stuck


Unfortunetly the only repair for that issue is to replace the complete seat belt mechanism. Basically the internal winding mechanism has gone out and will not retract the seat belt.

How to fix a stuck seat belt VW GTI 2009


I just solved the problem for a stuck rear center seat belt in my 2002 Jetta.

Flip the base seat cushion forward against the front seat backs. Trace down along the belt to its tether point on the floor. The belt is sewn around a steel loop. The loop is anchored to a black steel hook. A thin silvery retainer plate is spring tensioned on top of the loop to prevent it from sliding off of the hook when the seat back is folded.

Therefore, you need to press the silvery retainer plate away from the hook (push up) to allow the loop to be slid from the hook. The belt was tight with the seat back in the upright position, so it was necessary to fold the seat back forward to create slack in the belt. Now push the belt loop towards the trunk and slide it off of the end of the hook (only possible with the retainer plate pushed up out of the way).

Now with total release of tension on the system via the bottom end of the seat belt being untethered and with the seat back returned to the upright position, normal extension and retraction of the belt will be reestablished. Next, simply extend the seat belt and slide the loop back into place over the floor hook. It snaps past the silvery retainer plate without all the effort required to hold the plate up during removal of the loop during disassembly.

Check again, the seat belt should be extending and retracting properly. Now just put the seat cushion back into regular position and you will be able to safely buckle up three people across the back seat.

It took about as long to do this repair as it has taken to post this answer to the problem. Note, the seat belt safety mechanism only allows normal extension and retraction of the belt when the seat back is upright.

Fix a stuck back seat seat belt 2006 mitsubishi lancser


Most often the cause for the rear belts getting stuck is not an actual bad belt mechanism, but the belt simply getting folded over and retracted that way.

Try pulling the belt out as far as you can and inspect for the belt being folded. If this is the case, slowly work it back and forth trying to unfold it. It will take a while sometimes.

Airbag light flashes 5-1 5-1 5-1 as long as the key is on


The way I solved my problem with the airbag indicator light is: I took the passenger side seat belt at full retraction and slowly pulled it out until it reached the stop several times and each time allowing the seat belt to fully retract to its normal position. Apparently there are foreign debris (dust, lint, loose hair, etc.) that is interferring with the sensor response and triggering the indicator to come on. All the seat belts in the vehicle (no matter what brand) should be exercised/cleaned periodically to eliminate this problem. Also, as you pull the seat belts out until it reaches its stop to wipe with a lint free cloth as it extends and retracts. Keep in mind that it could be another kind of problem. This solution has worked for me several times.

There may be a small object like a coin in the re-tractor, pull the re-tractor and check, if nothing is found you will have to replace the belt assy, they are not repairable.
