Seat Belt Retractor Repair

Is your seat belt giving you issues or is not working properly? If so, you may want to take a look at what may be giving you these problems. There is the option of getting a professional to handle it all for you, but you can also try to work on it yourself if that is something you may want to do. The following is how to fix a seat belt retractor or a jammed seat belt.

There are two more common things to look for that may be the reason for your issues. The first is when dirt and grime is on the seat belts webbing. If the webbing is dirty, the seat belt may end up retracting a lot slower than it should. If the issue is with the dirt and grime, you would need to clean the webbing. To do this, you start by pulling the webbing out of the mechanism completely and clamp the end of the webbing so it does not retract back in. Then, using a cleaner, brush off the dirt or grime. If the dirt is being stubborn, you may want to soak the webbing in some water to loosen it before trying again. Before putting the webbing back into the mechanism. Make sure it is completely dry.

The second issue that you may be experiencing is when the seat belt retractor is locked. You try to fix this, start by pulling out 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, you may need to take out the retractor from the vehicle. Then, using a screwdriver you can manually spin the spool. This slowly retracts the seat belt webbing back into the mechanism.
