Question about Subaru Legacy
I've only had to change a seat belt once, and it was not a Subaru (the belt was partially cut thru). In my vehicle (Jeep) I had to remove the rear seat, and the belt was anchored with a bolt that required a large torx socket wrench to remove. Before you get that involved, maybe you should try to expose the retractor area of the belt, spray a generous dose of WD-40 in it, try working the belt in and out, keep spraying, hopefully it will work, but I really don't know if it's jammed beyond this fix. If you have to replace it, check the local auto junk yard. They may be able to give you tips about removal. You should be able to pick one up for about half the cost of new (color might not match?). Good Luck, sorry I can't be of more help. countrycurt0

To reinstall the rear seat cushion (PLEASE READ CAUTION)
A safety belt that isn't properly routed through
the seat cushion or is twisted won't provide the
protection needed in a crash. If the safety belt
hasn't been routed through the seat cushion at
all, it won't be there to work for the next
passenger. The person sitting in that position
could be badly injured. After reinstalling the seat
cushion, always check to be sure that the safety
belts are properly routed and are not twisted.
1. Buckle the center passenger position safety belt, then
route the safety belts through the proper slots in the
seat cushion. Don't let the safety belts get twisted.
2. Slide the rear of the cushion up and under the
seatback so the rear locating guides hook into the
wire loops on the back frame.
3. With the seat cushion lowered, push rearward and
then press down on the seat cushion until the spring
locks on both ends engage.
4. Check to make sure the safety belts are properly routed
and that no portion of any safety belt is trapped under
the seat. Also make sure the seat cushion is secured.
