It'll be fine. Just hold it perfectly upright, as in the 3rd photo of my instructions. This will allow the ratchet mechanism to "unlock" if you gently work the belt in & out.

Great write up max, only thing I would add is that sometimes stubborn torx need the persuasion of an impact driver the first time you get them loose. And I use an alternative lubricant, I have excellent results with liquid graphite, it lasts a LONG time. If you just post a picture of me applying it, you'll see what I mean

I don't even know why, but I've never been a fan of graphite lubricant. Because of that mental block, I never have any on hand & never consider using it.

If you have had good results with it, by all means post up a pic!

You never know how many folks you might help out!

heh, the pic thing was a joke Mr. Picture man!
The application is exactly the same as yours, the difference being that for areas like mine, where road salt and grime are a part of the road conditions, the graphite won't attract or hold the debris that a standard lubricant will.

Ah! I see!

I am really a "visual" person, so there is no doubt that I probably post more pics up on JF than almost anybody!

Just ordered up some rear belts and front belts to remove some racing seats. Definitely will service the belts before install.

Is it possible to use the rear driver's belt to replace the front driver's belt? Mine does not work correctly, and even after I do this little maintenance, if it still doesn't work can I just swap out a rear belt to the front? I can't remember visually if they are vastly different, and I'm far away from my YJ currently so I can't just walk out to the garage to inspect.

As a disclaimer, I don't use my back seat, so I don't have to worry about anyone not being safe in the rear of my Jeep.

Just did this and wow my drivers side I used to have to manually feed the belt back in after I got out what a difference I used marvelous mystery oil in an aerosol can.

Lets hear it for Max on a quality informative write up, you saved me $200.00 on new belts.

Nice fix so Im not trying to highjack your thread. I work for a dealer and seatbelts are warrantied for the life of the vehicle. The goverment makes them do it for safety. Why not just go to the dealer and get new ones for free?

That is a valid point, but we are jeepers, we are of a different mindset...we FIX things! Of course new belts would rock!
