Re: front seatbelt jams
My drivers side sometimes does this. Sometimes, if you're a bit too enthusiastic with your yanking (oo-er), it locks, as it should, but it also sticks on the way back in. So it won't go in, and you can't pull it out coz it's locked.
The only solution I've found to this, is to violently yank on it, while swearing viciously at it, until you just manage to jar it enough to unstick it, then it'll retract a bit, unlock itself and you can continue as normal. This can take up to a minute of constant yanking and swearing.
If anyone can come up with a solution, I'd be very grateful, as it ain't good for my blood pressure.
