Seatbelt problem?

Pass. side seat belt stuck won't ratchet in or pull out. It doesn't get used often. I removed the top plastic,but now realize the mechanism must be further down in the back of the seat. How does one go about removing the plastic on the rear of seat.

Sounds like the belt has gotten twisted as it was retracted and has locked the tensioner. I've always had luck tugging at it in 1/4"-1/2" intervals. It does take a while but once it comes past the twist, it will pull right out. Try that and let us know.

No problem, glad it was a simple fix.

Seatbelt had relapse. It got stuck again so I got the back of the seat off and found a mouse had gotten up in or near the mechanism. Tissue sunflower seeds corn came out when I started pulling on belt. Looks a bit complex to remove.

That sucks. Hope you get it fixed. I've never had one apart.

I'd been at my brothers place in the Hill Counrty for5days and the truck was parked near a bird feeder. When I got home I noticed some tissue in the glove box and some other things nawed on. I beleive the mouse got up in there near the mechanism and made a nest. no signs of mouse activity and yes the seat doesn' get used often. Iguess I'll have somebody take the seat out and let them fix or replace the mechanism. It's stuck.
