Seat Belt...

Recommended Posts

...on driver's side isn't "springing" back into place after releasing the lock on the buckle. I have to kind of feed it back into place.

How to fix?

The retractor in the b pillar needs to be replaced. Pretty common, my Explorer has the same problem but its not worth the $$ to fix it.

sometiems it is dirt along the panel slowing down the belt

try pulling the belt all the way out and cleaning it with spray nine

and for best results take off the panel ,clean the inside of it and then as much of the components as possible for the retractor

just a thought..did maybe the belt get twisted at some point and retract all the way back so now you cant even see if it is twisted? take off the panel and check the whole seat belt and make sure its not twisted inside there.i had a simlar problem like that and it was that!

i woul say it is easier to see all of the belt

but you don't have to if you don't want to make sure

also the panel in fornt of the belt has just a few clips or plugs

so just pull it away from the pilar and it pops off
