Take it out of the car and take it apart. One thing that can cause
similar problems is if a coin falls into it. If that's not the case, it
probably just needs some lubrication. Silicone spray lube should do the
65 kms of of hw 11 17 in northwestern ontario, just over a hours drive to
dryden ont, + back...
Local store doesnt carry silicone lube....
I usally go to Canadian Tire in Dryden, I dont go to Walmart unless I really
Actually, don't try to take it apart. It's not made to come apart, and you
probably won't be able to get it to stay together properly once you've
taken it apart. You can still try taking it off, looking down inside to
see if there's something in there, and lubing it, but I think it's a bad
idea to take it apart.
i had to intentions of taking it appart, as you said you cannot take it
nothings fallen in it, no kids...
i was thinking of taking it out and replacing it with a new used one...
guess I have to remove he seat to do that huhh? theres a screw holding the
trim on and its right against the center console
I should have been more specific. Once you get it unbolted from the
floor, removing the covers should be enough disassembly to allow you to
see if anything is stuck in it, broken, rusted, etc., and where you need
to lube it.
BTW, the reason I suggest silicone lube for the latch is that anything
oily or greasy is likely to end up on you clothing unless you're really
careful with the belt.
I don't have any kids, either, but I've had a coin fall out of my hand
at a drive-through and land in the seat belt latch.
It may require removing the seat, but in some cars you can access the
bolt holding the seat belt latch by sliding the seat all the way forward.
