rear seatbelts

ok i cant figure this out
i took the rear seatbelts out
what my ? is how in the world do you realse the seatbelt
its completly out of the car and i need to put it back in but there isnt enough slack it only goes about and inch or 2 before it locks help?

Usually a seatbelt won’t release when it’s not in the car. There is something in there that locks the belt when it isn’t level and seure. Bolt that part in first, it should unwind from there.

Yeah, usually you have to have the mechanism in the correct orientation. Whenever it’s not in that orientation it will automatically lock. I believe the reasoning is that you want them locked in the event of a rollover.

yup i figured it out took awhile of frustration but got um in thanks
