the belt is stuck since you have tugged at it and its got locked. you can open the screw that holds the other end(the one bolted to the chassis), and it'll re-tract. you can then screw it back.

hope this helps.

I got the same problem in my sail. One of the rear seat belt got stuck. After pulling like 5,6 times it yeilds. I had to break my head with the sundaram guys to prove that this IS a defect. Its under warranty. And they have now accepted to replace it. Waiting for the part to arrive!!

hi fellows, pls help ...

The seat belt's reverse mechanism in my Zen is not working properly, infact, it is stretched out to the maximum but wont go back (driver's side) ? Is it repairable or do I need to get a new one and will one side's belt only be available ?

Regards,
Dikshant

@nick, pls ask your A.S.S guy to have a look at it. I have faced this problem, and the A.S.S has fixed it. Hopefully can be done for your seat belt also.

That one was done during servicing, and not charged separately.

Will depend on what is the problem. If it has to be replaced, it may cost upto 4k (not sure of current rates)

I have a similar issue on my Indica DLG. Had mentioned the same to K.H.T motor during the 60k service. And guess what, they conveniently forgot to check it and tell me to get it back later and they will have it checked again...

Thats Tata's quality service for you..

It is possible that the seat-belts came off their reels or something else is interfering with them. If you are DIY guys, then you can try opening up the interior panels and check whats wrong with the reel which is located at the bottum of the B pillar.
Dikshant: If the tension of the retracting spring is lost, then you will have to replace the belt.

Totally agree. Open up the panel, sometime a little of wd40 on the mechanism works really well.As seatbelts are made to work in need, it is normally made strong and there is less chance of things breaking inside.
Once I had a problem with my seatbelt and it wouldn't recoil once it is pulled out. What I did was, I opened the plastic panel, used some WD40 and made sure it worked smooth before I placed the plastic panel back.
Hope this helps..!
