confused Seatbelt Problem.

I have no idea if I'm posting this in the right place, if not can one of the mods tell me where to go?

The middle rear seatbelt in my EB refuses to budge, it seems to have locked up, sort of like I've just hit the anchors. I take my son and his mates out fishing quite often and I refuse to let any one travel without a seatbelt, especially seeing as it's the middle one.

Has anyone got any ideas on how I could fix it? It was fine one minute and stuffed the next.

Re: Seatbelt Problem.

If you are saying it won't unreel you will need to poke some of teh seatbelt back in the reel to release the tension 1st. If there is no slack you will have to unbolt either the reel or the other end to do this. Can happen if the kids over extend the belt and then let it rewind too quickly,

Re: Seatbelt Problem.

Is it locked with some/all of the belt out, or all of the belt wound up?

Re: Seatbelt Problem.

It's locked with the belt all the way in, it may give an inch of slack but other than that no joy.

I'll have a look at it later on this afternoon, I've bribed my son and he's cleaning it at the moment.

Thanks for the help so far.
