Question about 1997 Chevrolet K1500
My 97 silverado passenger side seat belt will not come out more than 8 inches before locking up
THERE IS A COUNTER WEIGHT INSIDE OF THE RETRACTOR THAT IS CAUSING YOUR PROBLEM. UNFORTUNATELY YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO FIX IT, UNLESS OF COURSE THERE IS SOMETHING STUCK INSIDE OF THE RETRACTOR.

Please check if your seat belt has "Retractors" or "Automatic Retractor".
Follow these steps to determine if you have a retractor system that will hold car seat securely or your seat belt won't retract as should be:
A. Pull belt all the way out.
b. Allow belt to retract about 6 inches (15 cm).
c. Pull out on belt again.
If belt is locked and you cannot pull the belt out any further, you have an Automatic Locking;
If you pull the belt again all the way out and won't return to normal operation, then the mechanism is damaged, but try first the "retractor" lock to be sure. By Federal Law, nobody will sale a seat belt in a junk yard, try the dealer or order thru the dealer the whole seat belt or the mechanism. I hope that is just a matter of the automatic retractor; you can see this information in your car's manual. Try and we will see.
