Question about 2004 Ford F150
Posted by Anonymous on
This is a little tricky because they are tamper proof and what seems to have happened is that it has locked up on you , you can try to pull suddenly on it to see if it will free itself ( but my guess is you have tried that already but if you haven't you need to pull it in a fast jerking motion and release your grip immediately to give the belt a chance to retract ! or you could try using a hair dryer on the hot setting to heat the mechanism up and then try the quick pull and release method ! lastly some lubricating spray (WD40 )using a long directional spray nozzle to help free it up .

It could have twisted on recoil and is now stuck. You'd have to remove the interior panel to view that.
On the really bad side, the seat belt pretensioner could have failed or fired and locked the belt in place. If that's the case, I'd have a mechanic replace it since you can trigger an air bag deployment replacing it yourself.

this is a simple repair many dont know. remove or pull off plastic pillar post cover, seatbelt probably twisted inside. twist it back around so it runs flat and lube slightly with a light lube spray on metal gearing. i had the same problem w mine pk

try to feed it back in by hand. If that does not work, try jerking on the belt.
Is it in ALR mode? That means you pulled it out all the way and it was clicking on the way back in. It does not sound like it.
