Passenger Side Seat-belt Wont Work!


Recommended Posts

ever since i bought my r32, the passenger side seat belt was fine.. only problem with it is that it wouldnt retract the full way...

now its gotten worse..

it feels as if the seatbelt roll has seized, and that it wont retract and you can even pull it.. so basically, unless your very fricken small/skinny, you wont be wearing the seat belt..

ive taken off the inner panel covering the seat belt roll, and it isnt tangled or anything, everything seems to be fine... i try to pull the seat belt to get some more slack, but nothing happens.... i pull as hard as i can and no slack is given..

how to go about fixing this guys? its shitting me as i usually drive around witha mate or with the gf..

I think it'll be best to replace the seat belt altogether. It'll be safer and easier for you. You never know what could happen.

Try looking for a replacement at your local wreckers. I don't think it should be all that expensive.

When i pulled mine apart to fix it one of the plastic gears had cracked and was jammed in the locking mechanism, repco can get replacements for pretty cheap but they need a lil bit of adapting to use the stock stalk bit (that clears the belt from your shoulders)

i know this is a completely different issue but this post just jogged my memory..in my 89 r32, the passengers side seat belt will sometimes just go slack...its way too dangerous for my liking...like for example my partner will be sitting in the passengers seat with the seat belt being normal, and all of a sudden it just goes slack, she moves and it just goes all loose...anyone got any ideas what this could be? cos i dnt want to have an accident with anyone in the passengers seat and for the seat belt to fail.

    • Yes will do. watching a few Vids on the tube about a dude putting a sub it. he is running it in the standard spot aswell with an amp. looks like he runs RCA's from the headunit and power then uses a connector onto his old sub wires and sends them to what looks like a Control unit of some sort. LC2 Not sure why he used this maybe the stock head unit has no woofer control? but with a Mono block Amp i should not have any issues controlling it?
    • Yer Nissan basically told me to get f**ked on my V37 firmware or any update for that matter. Basically Private/grey import and is not released in Australia and No Parts can be offered in Australia to fit or any software upgrades or something to that nature.  
    • Here is my 2013 Nissan Skyline 370GT Type-S has a factory Nismo exhaust and Enkei rims. Shes completely unmodified. Brought her from Cult & Classic and drove down from NSW to Tassie November last year. 
    • Yet another thread bump because I want to talk about this: The general gist that this guy found for a MK7 Golf GTI is that by adding a venturi from a 2022 Tiguan he managed to pull crankcase vacuum far more reliably under boost which effectively stopped oil consumption on his engine in track conditions. An earlier video details how that venturi works: Basically one port is atmospheric vent, one port goes to a boost source, and the last port goes to the crankcase vent. There's a lot of discussion on here about scavenge pumps and all that fun stuff, why not try to replicate that by pulling some energy off the compressor? There is one catch though and that is that the PCV diaphragm on these cars appears to completely block off airflow from the intake when there is enough crankcase vacuum. This contrasts with the RBs where there is basically nothing stopping vacuum from the intake from sucking a big gulp of oil if it gets into the crankcase vent.
    • Hi All, Brought a 4 Door 2013 Skyline 370GT Type-S in November last year. Absolutely loving the car, noticed a few audio issues speakers cutting in and out and the 12V circuit seems to be completely dead (after checking and swapping the fuses) but just wanted to say Hi
