Volvo V70 rear seatbelt jammed

In attempting to fix the problem, the rear widest part of the folding seat is now stuck forward as the seatbelt will not release. This means I cannot carry the small kids in the car together as there is now only one usuable rear seat. The seat belt is locking where it should pull out of the back seat (at shoulder height). Have tried to free it, but having same problem you're having, backseat now will not go back into upright position - help!

You can remove the bolt that holds the seatbelt to the floor by pulling off the seatpad where the belt goes to the floor and then raise the seat and the belt should reset. this happens on my passenger side rear seat.

There is a small plastic plug that fits on the seatbelt whose job it is to stop the seatbelt spooling too far into the seat. This little plug comes off easily. That's what's happened to our seat so many times its not funny. Thanks for the info on how to release the seatbelt.
The plug on the belt needs to be small enough so that the belt buckle/lock can travel over it. If you look on the seatbelt on the other side of the car you'll see the little plug. The volvo part is just not up to the level of abuse it gets from us. Now I have to figure out how to make a more durable replacement. I'm sick of going back to the dealership for a fix that lasts a month or two at most.

Remove the rear seat side squab by gently pulling away at the top then lifting up ( it is fixed by a push clip at the top and a hook at the bottom).
Undo the nut which anchors the seat belt and left the belt to one side of the seat, lift up the the rear seat and tehn simply reposition the seat belt. Refix and tighten the seat belt anchoring nut at the bottom then replace the squab by hooking and pushing in to fit. You will need a slightly larger plastic clip to retain the seat belt in future. A small nut and bolt may do!!!

What are they charging you for this fix? They quoted me $150.00!! A bit much I'd say for every month or two!

Middle back seat: seat belt is locked up & will not release!!!


DO NOT CUT YOUR SEATBELT!!! Simply unbolt the seat from the body, unbolt the seatbelt from the body under the seat, tilt the seat forward, pull the seatbelt and part that attaches to the body between the seat cushion and backrest and release the tension. Not the easiest fix, but it only takes 30 minutes to do, and will save you a LOT of money. If you cut that seatbelt, you will be buying a new rear seat.

How to fold the rear seats in malibu 2011?


You should notice a looped strap of cloth next to the head rest at the top of the seat. That is the release for the seatback lock. Simultaneously pull up on the strap and pull the head rest forward to fold the seat forward. The seats are split 60/40, so each seat has its own release looped strap.

My back seat middle seatbelt is locked and the seat is folded down. how do i unlock the seatbelt to raise the seat back upright


That just happened to our 05 equinox. We have car seats so one of the seats was reclined just a bit. This will cause the seatbelt to lock. We took out the car seat, folded down the other seat and folded it back. It cause the locked seat to release and unfold.

How do you fold down rear seats in 1991 4 runner


There is a small loop about a 1/2" wide located next to the seatbelt "female end" they are a pain to find if they slide down behind the seat. pull it toward the front of the truck, you should be able to flip the bottom seat up and forward. Sometimes the seat belt will get stuck in the locking mechanism and you will have to pull hard to free it.

How do I remove the rear seat on a 2001Volvo V70?


I am going to assume you mean the normal rear seats, not rear facing seats in the very back.
The rear seat folds down. The benches fold up from the back. When they are up you can see how to easily remove them if you want.
When the benches are up the backs fold down. There are levers on the top the slide forward to release them so they can be folded down. Tip the outboard head restraints forward by pulling their straps. The center head restraint has a button behind its right-hand support that you push to allow it to be lowered.

Rear seatbelt stuck behind head rest in locked position


haha we know you didnt do it on purpose, without seeing your problem and the hard to describe issue, i can only recommend to maybe try folding the seat to the cargo position, if that helps. if not, then you will more than likely need to disassemble the rear quarter panel, and unbolt the seat belt retractor from the body of the vehicle. sorry but there is no other way

Saturn vue 2007, rear folding seat will not return to proper position due to seat belt being locked up.


They have a problem with the seatbelt retractor getting jammed up causing the belt to jam & not let the rear seat fold back up.The easiest way to get the seat back up is to cut the seatbelt & fold up the seat.Then the rear seat needs to be disassembled to gain access to the seatbelt retractor assy which has the seat belt made on.Hopefully it's still under warranty or Ext. warranty.hope this helps

Volvo V70 rear seatbelt jammed


i know this sounds rough, but pull the seat belt with both hands as hard as you can, this will more than likely free the seat belt, some of the seat belt may have jammed in the gear inside the roller box.......
