Saturn SL1 Stuck Seat Belt

Q. Hi! I have a 1997 Saturn SL1, automatic transmission, no special features, and the passenger side seat belt is stuck. This happened a couple of years back, and when I took it to a mechanic (after playing with it for days), he basically just pulled it in a certain way and unstuck it. he said that the mechanism that locks the seat belt in an accident got stuck.

Well, it has happened again, and I have moved, I imagine the mechanics in CT won't be as nice (nobody here is!!!) and fix it for free. What can I do to get the seat belt unstuck? My husband is used to working on cars, but the Chilton's manual we bought has nothing on the subject.


A. Being that this is a safety item, I would replace that belt assembly with a new one. If you happen to get it un-jammed again, it may lock on you at a bad time. I'm sure if your husband is "handy", he can replace it himself.
