Q: Seat belt lock not working.

asked by on

The seat belt lock is not working.

Hi. If your seat belt lock is not working, then that is something that should be repaired as soon as possible for safety reasons. The seat belt should lock when the belt is moved at a quick rate as a safety feature. If this is not the case, then the seat belt retractor assembly needs to be replaced. There are no other repairs that can be made to this system other than replacing it. You would need to remove the plastic trim panels to replace the assembly.
