Passenger SEAT BELT Locked

I recently bought a used 2008 tacoma trd, and the pass front seat belt would not come out and was locked. I figured it just may be jammed inside so I took the seat belt assembly out and did not see anything that would cause it to be locked/jammed.

Does anyone know of a way to get it unlocked, or am I just going to have to get a new one.

thanks for your help

You weren't by any chance, on a steep driveway? Steep inclines will lock the seatbelts.

It sounds to me that the retractor might be bad. You def want to get it replaced. Where did you buy the truck from?

It has 83k miles so it is out of warranty,
No steep inclines,
bought it used from an individual.

Sounds like it's broken and needs to be replaced then.

You can try and find one at a wrecking yard if you want to save a buck.

well I was hoping not to have to buy one and that there may be a way to reset it, but it sounds like I will be buying another one

Have you retracted it all the way? If you pull it out all the way, then let it back in, it should be in lock/ratchet mode (like for use with infant car seats). This should be the case with all the belts except the driver's seat belt. So if it went into lock/ratchet mode, you have to retract it all the way (and I do mean all the way) for it to release and exit the lock mode. When you took it apart, did you feed more belt into it to release it?

My daughter was too old for a car seat by the time we bought our Tacoma, so I haven't tested this feature out to see if the seat belts still do this. I'm assuming nothing's changed though.

when I took it out I tried that it would not pull out but would continue to retract in hold if I feed it.

Does anyone know if the tacoma seat belt cross refrences with any other toyota model seat belts or is it model specific?
