I've removed the drivers side seat belt, untangled a series of knots and reinstalled it into the vehicle. Now it's locked in the retracted position and won't pull out whatsoever. I've tried giving it a quick tug - no luck. I've tried pulling with brute force - no luck.

The air bag light isn't on but the seat belt is just locked. Is there any correcting this situation or should I be looking in the scrap yard for a replacement ? I really don't feel safe driving it now & need a solution quickly. Thanks in advance for any and all tech information anyone could offer.

PROBLEM SOLVED ! ! ! There is a gravity switch or pendulum inside the seat belt retractor and i must have turned it upside down when i untangled the knots. I had to remove the retractor again, tap on it lightly with a rubber mallet while pulling the belt in and out. I could feel a "ratchet" inside the retractor but managed to repeat this technique again and again. Each time I could gain a couple more inches of slack in the seat belt until it finally reached a point where it freespooled and worked like it was designed to.

After getting the slack I needed I was able to bolt the retractor back in, install the bottom bolt in the seat belt strap and it works like a charm. Live * Learn.
