: Rear Seat Belt Over Extended & Stuck

03-10-2011, 11:05 AM
I've done a search on the site and I've located a lot of folks whose belt got stuck and wouldn't EXTEND, but I can't find any where the belt wouldn't RETRACT.

The rear belt was pulled out all the way and now won't go back into the slot; is there a simple solution or must I take the whole rear side panel apart to access the winding mechanism. And if so, what do I need to do to it to unlock it?

Problem Solved: Turns out the belt itself somehow got twisted right at the return pulley and just needed to be UNtwisted by pulling back the side seat panel and getting my fingers in there.
