Rear Seatbelt wound up and wont release
I'm re-installing the rear seat belts after "herc"ing the tub and I came across a huge problem. I allowed the rear seat belt mechanism to wind up the entire seat belt minus maybe 6 inches or so. Now the belt is locked in the spool like they do when you jam on the brakes. There has to be a way to release the tension therefore releasing the belt....right?? I'm stumped ? Keep in mind neither end is bolted in, both ends are dangling by the sport bar. Am I missing a button or something? Any help extremely appreciated!!
AMERICA IS FULL
Have Cummins, Will tow.
Our seatbelt mechanisms will not release unless held perfectly vertical, in the same position as they are mounted in. If they are tilted at all, the little ball in the bottom of the mechanism will roll out and lock it up.
When you have a choice, buy American.
i had this problem when i took mine out to paint the cover.just take your time with it.don't drill or get frustrated.just do like jerry said,it will come back out.
So, is there any tread left on the tires? Or at this point would it be like throwing a hot dog down a hallway?
