If it does not get pull out , the belt may be tangled, twisted or there may be a jam deep. Yow will have to inspect the seat belt fitting internally. The lower plastic door sill mldg just pulls up use a flat screwdriver under it, then the 1/2 round mldg around the door pulls off. just remove that mldg around the rear opening of the door, same for rear door just pull 1/2 round off on the front of door. now you can pull edge of b pillar cover loose front and rear then remove lower cover to see seat belt.
---------- Also it can be faulty seat belt retractor. Click this link directly for more help:-------- http://technoanswers.blogspot.com/2011/03/how-to-fix-stuck-seat-belt-on-toyota.html ------------- Keep updated,Thanks.Helpmech.

Hi.

The inertia reel has not been mounted properly. Replacing Toyota belts is quite tricky. Follow the step by step procedure illustrated in manual below. Belts are included in seat removal procedure (clearly do not remove seat). Check chapter starting at page 183/184 in manual below.

Please refer to pages from 184 onward in this service manual.

Regards.

Ginko.

    Hi.

    On your request the question had been passed to a different expert. I could not find any clarification request. Just the refusal of my support. Sorry.
    A different expert will take care of your case.Reinstall the reel and enjoy the service manual.

    Good luck and goodbye.

    Re:

    "another experst who just directed me to the toyota manual!!"

    That is incorrect.
    I also addressed the location of the fault. Note. The manual was the service manual, not owners manual. There is step by step installation procedure with picture. If you do it correctly and belts are working there will be no problem. The problem is mechanical.
    I would have provided more support if clarification was requested.

    Sorry but I had to clarify. Your refusal will automatically give me bad feedback (apart passing the question).

    Good luck and goodbye.

I can't find a 94 corolla rh front seat belt retractor, is there a different year or model of toyota seat belt retractors I can use?


seat belts are not genuine but are made to toyota specs
unless there is a problem in the mounting point , most are a bolt on part to a bracket in the car
go to a wreckers that has toyota wrecks and get good belts from cars that have not been involved in front end collisions
most belts fit a range of years and models across toyota and similar shaped cabins

How much work is involved in replacing a fan belt for a 2003 Toyota Corolla? Would appreciate the help!!


Hi,
Replacing the belt is easy enough to do. I don't know which type engine you have, but basically there is a tensioning arm that has to be pryed back to remove and install the belt.
You should have a routing diagram on your car, usually in the engine compartment (on the hood or fender). Or in the owner's manual.
Hope this helps... Good luck!

Should my husband and I attempt to replace the serpentine belt on a 2003 Toyota Corolla or take it to a auto shop?


the routing for the belt should be on a sticker under the hood, it is not complicated, you need a few common hand tools, you release the belt tentionser, remove old belt and install new one

I HAVE A 2003 TOYOTA COROLLA WITH AIRBAG CODE B0133 SHORT IN P/T SQUIB RH CIRCUIT (B+). DOES ANY ONE KNOW WHAT USUALLY IS THE PROBLEM WITH THIS FAULT? OR WHAT I NEED TO CHECK.


You have a problem with the pass seat belt or the wiring to it.P/T stands for pretensioner. when the air bag deploys the seat belts tighten.
Be carful with the seat belt it contains an explosive.

Cant find the third hook for middle seat belt in the back seat


On rear seat, remove it by lifting it up, then look down there for the missing hook or belt. When replacing the seat, you have to insure all the straps are on the seat before pushing in and down to replace the seat. It just pulls up and pushes down.

Replace rear seat belt in 1993 Toyota Corolla


OK. On the front edge of the seat bottom cushion, pull up hard, both sides. This will dislodge the 2 clamps that holds the seat cushion to the floor. Pull the seat cushion out & set it aside. You will now see the female latches bolted to the area where the rear of the seat cushion meets the rear seat back bottom. Remove the bolts (14 mm I think).
