My wife is always complaning that her seat belt is always locking up. Does anyone know how to fix the belt? I tried to duct tape her mouth to stop the complaning but that didn't work. so i need other options.
Mine will lock without moving. Only way to fix this is to unbuckle and let it back into the seat. Then rebuckle and wait for it to happen again. I know it is hard to believe, dealer thinks we are crazy too.
Mine does the same thing. You have to move REALLY SLOW to stop it from locking up. Can't even lean forward without it locking. If I sat there all the time I'd be upset. I just ask the passenger if they would rather it NOT work...
Everytime I'm a passenger it ticks me off, luckily that's only once in a while.
My truck did the same thing, so I replaced the retractor. What a job that was, you have to remove the seat back upolstery and the frame backing (which is formed cardboard) to access the retractor. The retractor is not adjustable or repairable in any way. If it is bad you replace it. But guess what, the new retractor locks up on the passenger just like the original one did. I think that a seat belt extender might do the trick. They are available free of charge at any GM dealer.
Just go to the parts department and tell them that you would like some seatbelt extenders. You can usually get one for each seating position of the vehical they will be used in. They will ask for the application, possibly your vin and proof of ownership and then order them for you. And yes they are free!
So Why is it only the the front passenger seat that does it Ben? The rear two seats don't. Like i said before i thought i was the only one. now i find out there are others. and i know how pull it out to make it lock. thats why i have the cc. to haul kids.
ok, i think i understand. it has to do with the seat config on that seat compared to the others. and it is easier to pull it farther causing it to lock. even if you don't really pull it out that far....... right?
