Question about 2001 Ford Mustang

Open Question

Front right seat belt is stuck, it is extended, won't retract, and won't extend ant further. Figured to start by removing the back seat to get access to the side panels, but can't see where to release it, and don't want to break something just tearing into it. What do I need to do & how?

SOURCE: 1999 Dodge 2500 passenger side seat belt wont release

so after completely tearing the seat apart I found 2 wires going up to the seat belt mechanism from under the seat, these wires got caught in the seat mechanism underneath and were shredded. There must be a small solenoid inside the seat belt mechanism because I could hear it click after I repaired the wires(this circuit is live even with the ignition off) Im not sure how it all works but this solved my problem.

On most belts, when you pull them and let them go to fast,they can twist. Disconnect the side panel (make sure it doesn't have any screws) and pop out the panel. Be careful. See if the belt is straight all the way through. If not, straighten and test. This may solve the problem. If not, you may need to replace the gearbox for the belt.

the seat belt mechanism could be getting worn out. usually you would have to replace the seat belt retractor but try some WD-40 and see if that helps

C320 rear seat belt stuck


Unfortunetly the only repair for that issue is to replace the complete seat belt mechanism. Basically the internal winding mechanism has gone out and will not retract the seat belt.

Are you trying to say the seat belt retractor is stuck? This is in the front seat?
If it's anything like my Tahoe, you need to remove the plastic panel that covers the retractor (carefully - don't break the clips or you won't be able to put it back on). Take a large flat head screwdriver and slide it under the part where the seat belt coils up, and find a little tab - push it with the screwdriver. As long as the seat belt is not twisted up, it should retract.

My front passenger seat belt is locked in the retracted position so it can not be extended for a passenger to use. How do I fix this or remove the plastic cover to expose the locking device?


if you take the bolt out of the top of the seat belt you should be able to free it up it needs to roll back a bit before it will release

How to fix a stuck seat belt VW GTI 2009


I just solved the problem for a stuck rear center seat belt in my 2002 Jetta.

Flip the base seat cushion forward against the front seat backs. Trace down along the belt to its tether point on the floor. The belt is sewn around a steel loop. The loop is anchored to a black steel hook. A thin silvery retainer plate is spring tensioned on top of the loop to prevent it from sliding off of the hook when the seat back is folded.

Therefore, you need to press the silvery retainer plate away from the hook (push up) to allow the loop to be slid from the hook. The belt was tight with the seat back in the upright position, so it was necessary to fold the seat back forward to create slack in the belt. Now push the belt loop towards the trunk and slide it off of the end of the hook (only possible with the retainer plate pushed up out of the way).

Now with total release of tension on the system via the bottom end of the seat belt being untethered and with the seat back returned to the upright position, normal extension and retraction of the belt will be reestablished. Next, simply extend the seat belt and slide the loop back into place over the floor hook. It snaps past the silvery retainer plate without all the effort required to hold the plate up during removal of the loop during disassembly.

Check again, the seat belt should be extending and retracting properly. Now just put the seat cushion back into regular position and you will be able to safely buckle up three people across the back seat.

It took about as long to do this repair as it has taken to post this answer to the problem. Note, the seat belt safety mechanism only allows normal extension and retraction of the belt when the seat back is upright.

S40 volvo seat belt comes out in small lengths only.


you could remove the trim on your car to access the seat belt unit. There will be a tensioner spring that you can adjust to increase or decrease the locking tension

Seat belt malfunction


There may be a small object like a coin in the re-tractor, pull the re-tractor and check, if nothing is found you will have to replace the belt assy, they are not repairable.
