seatbelt locking?

2 posts in this topic

been having an issue with the right rear seat belt. when i pull it out to put the child seat in, then retract the remainder of the belt, it locks so it can't come out any further. that part is normal opperation. the problem is after I remove the child seat. the seatbelt retracts all the way in and stays locked! I have to lift the lower portion of the seat, remove the lower seatbelt attachment bolt, and retract the seatbelt further for it to "un-lock".

what's the deal?

thanks in advance

Is the plastic "button" still on the seatbelt that prevents the belt from retracting too far in?

If it is not, that will make it too tight and prevent it from "unlocking" until the tension is relieved.

Is the plastic on the seat where the belt goes in broken? That will allow the belt to go in too far also.
