SOURCE: 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.......

SOURCE: Volvo V70 rear seatbelt jammed

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.

SOURCE: rear seat down and wont go back up; locked middle belt

middle seat belt shouldn't have anything to do with it. The seat locks down for stowage in the rear cargo area. you can pull the release handle on the back of the seat to release it back into the up position.

SOURCE: my back seat middle seatbelt is locked and the

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.

The back left seat seems to be stuck due to the locking of the middle seatbelt. Any idea on how to fix that?


When a seatbelt locks up it is usually due to dirt or corrosion in the automatic locking mechanism. The mechanism can't release because it is under tension. If you get into the cover that houses the release mechanism for the seatbelt, you may be able to hit it with a little wd-40. You do have to release that tension so that the lock will spring back to the open position and allow the seatbelt to retract. Try the lube. Sometimes the galvanized coating on the internal parts causes a seize.

2002 tahoe back seat seatbelt is twisted and won't retract. The bolt holding the paneling on that covers the pulley is stripped and wont come out. Looking for two solutions: how to get that screw


TO get that screw out you need to use a tool that looks like a nail puller and you put it under the screw head to lift while you unscrew it. Once you get to the mechanism for the seatbelt, you should be able to free it because it will he able to have slack and the dogs will loosen up. Be mindful of airbags and seatbelt tensioners that are in that area though

Rear middle seatbelt won't pull out in holden astra after I have folded down the seat , so can't return seat to correct position . How do I fix?


I agree with the above comments. I just had this same problem. Holden (Australia) quoted me AU$650 to fix it. I bought a T50 torx bit (like an Allen key)from supercheap auto for $11.
raise the seat back up as much as you can (I could only raise mine about 20 inches). Wriggle your hand in and find the bottom bolt of the seat belt clip (this will be the seatbelt clip for the side seatbelt) and start undoing it. It isn't hard, just fiddly considering you probably won't be able to see what you are doing. Once undone, you will be able to raise the seat.
I was still unable to loosen my middle seatbelt immediately. I came back to it a while later and it had freed up.
Simply a matter of then bolting it back in place. It was so easy - and I'm just a middle aged woman with no handyman/car skills whatsoever!

Seat belt stuck on 1995 850 volvo


I solved this on my 95 volvo 850 glt as follows:

pull the seatbelt pilar cover off from the door jamb. this runs vertically up the pilar between the front an back door (beside the front seats. Once opened loosen the belt by gently pulling the belt upward toward the roof. You'll have to do this sometimes in small increments. Once the seatbelt is pulled out all the way, spray small amount of lubricant into the joint where at the top of the belt spool. Also use a screw driver to push spool upward while pulling the belt. At first it's only going to release a little but eventually the lubricant will work its way into the seam at the top of the belt spool and loosen up the stuck inertia catch. Until it completely loosens you might have to remove the pilar cover again and work the seatbelt out (also use the screw driver technique described above) in order to use the seatbelt. When parking, I would relatch the seatbelt and pull the slack up around the back of the head rest. After a day or so it worked normally.

Rear seat tumbled forward for more room in back and seat belt jamed. now back seat can not go back into position.


To fix that scenario, I have to get to the bolts anchoring the seat belt which can be found under the rear seat. Which a socket wrench, remove the bolt freeing the seatbelt to allow you room to release the lock to pull the belt out from the top of the back seat. You may now push the back seat into its upright position and then refasten the seatbelts with the bolt to it's former position under the back seat.

When I in later times need to lower the back seat, I will either loop the seatbelt around the head rest or tie two belts together allowing for slack in case the belt tightens again when trying to move the seat back to its original position.

.....Very frustrating!!!
