Seat Belt Retractor Replacement
If your seat belt is not working you may want to take a moment to look at it to determining if it need to be replaced or repaired. If you are someone who likes to do things themselves, you may want to tackle the seat belt repair yourself. Here is how to fix a seat belt retractor or a jammed seat belt.
There are two more common situations to look for that may be the reason for your problems. The first is when dirt and grime is on the seat belts webbing causing the belt to retract slower than normal. The second is when the seat belt retractor is locked.
If the issue is with the dirt and grime, you would need to clean the webbing thoroughly. Pull the webbing out completely and clamp the end of the webbing so it does not retract back in. Next, using a cleaner, clean off the dirt or grime. You may need to soak it if necessary. Dry off the webbing completely before retracting it back into the mechanism.
Here is how to fix locked seat belt after accident. First, pull the webbing out of the seat belt completely and then give it a yank to undo the locked belt. If this does not work for you, take out the retractor out of the vehicle. Then, using a screwdriver you can manually spin the spool. This slowly retracts the seat belt webbing back into the mechanism.
