    Hello,

    I have an '06 with the driver's side shoulder belt stuck in the out position. Any ideas? I'm 250 miles from the dealer.

    Mine happens sometimes when I pull too hard on it. I take apart the side plastic panels where the seat belt is and hand feed it back in the feeder on the bottom while keeping some tension on the seat belt. Be patient..it'll "spring" back in. If not..pull the seat belt back up and re-do it again.

    Sorry if this has nothing to do with your problem..sounds similar to mine :confused:

    Yeah it happens to me a lot also not sure why. So now when I buckle up I make sure I don't yank on it fast. Glad it worked :thumbsup: let me know if you find a fix lol

    None yet! It's new!
    Here's a tip to help prevent SOME belt problems - at the upper guide, the one the belt goes through up high - it's adjustable for height. Make sure it is NOT adjusted at the lowest point. That way if you get caught in that situation again, you can pull the belt out as far as it will go, and while holding the belt tightly, you can lower that adjustment and it will allow you enough slack to un-twist the belt or whatever you need to do.

    I learned that with my FJ, so now I keep those adjustments set higher in both the Tacoma and FJ and it's saved me a couple of times when the belts have gotten twisted and stuck.
