    I have been fighting a non-retracting driver's side seatbelt for a long time so I decided to take it apart and see if it was an easy fix....well....it won't uncoil now and I'm hoping someone can enlighten me on how to get the retractor to release.

    I used a magnet and moved it around the plastic cover on the side (the one opposite the electrical sensor) while pulling on the seat belt...it released the lock and allowed me to unwind the seatbelt. Whew. :)
