    06 Tacoma access cab. Passengers side belt is locked up. I removed the door panel on the swing out door, and got it to release, and pull back and forth several times. Put things back together and it worked for awhile. Now it's stuck again.

    Do I have to replace the whole thing or is there a way to fix it?

    Try the dealer, sometimes for safety stuff like that they will goodwill the cost of repair.

    You could possibly have grime stuck in the locking mechanism. This happens a lot to the buses here at work and we have to clean them.

    There should be a plastic section of the retractor itself you can pry off and expose the locking mechanism. Check that over really good. Clean and lube the little arm that catches the gear on the retractor wheel.

    Also pull the belt all the way out and double check for twisting. You could have a twist toward the end of belt near the reel that keeps jamming things up.

    I've had this issue on a 2011. I was gonna take it to the dealership but someone else got it unstuck for me by just doing a slight tug here and there. No problem since.

    Make sure when you are working on the reel mechanism that you don't let it pull in more belt than it normally has, or it will jam. When I have to work on one, I put a binder clip on the belt at the reel to prevent that.
