    The passenger side seatbelt on my truck became locked for some reason after you pull about 8 inches of belt out......however, i cannot get the bolt going into the floor of the truck to budge so i can get to the inner working of the belt mechanism.....is there some trick to getting this off? I don't want to remove just the plastic cover since it is riveted on.....

    btw, and i know its not just full of dirt and unlubricated as i keep it very well lubricated, i think just something is tangled or caught in there!
    thanks

    Sounds like your seatbelt committed suicide in there. I had one do that on my 94 2500. Those bolts are a PITA to get out. I think they have some sort of permanent lock tight or something, since they are made to withstand a wreck and not pull out. You may need to use an impact gun to get it to budge, that is what I did

    Dad fixed it while i was at band practice, he had to pull a few things apart in there, and its not all back together the right way, but, the seatbelt works as it is suppose to now!!!

    -thanks guys!!-

    The dumbell mechanism inside can get dirt in it and become locked as it does like when you brake hard or get in an accident......it's a pita!
