Hi

I dont have a spare, and you generally buy standard seat belts from Midas.

Try open the existing one to reset the spring.

I got belts from Reg that were not allowing the belt to be pulled out - they would jam

What he suggested was to open the unit and remove the plastic item inside that holds a ball bearing (this devise apparently stops the belt from releasing if the car should turnover) - I removed them and the belts are working fine, I'm not planning to turnover!

Hi: Inertia safety belts are designed to work at specific angles, not all belts will work the little plastic ball works at that angle. Try moving the new belt to the same angle before fitting to see if it is compatible, most over the counter belts are for the front.  Good luck           

Enjoy your day

Hey everyone

Kevin when I pull the safety belt it doesn't want to dissengage it just stays locked but the spring is broken will try weblore springs for a new one and will then see if I can get it working or remove the ball I removed everything inside so it is releasing but now it won't lock when you might need it to

Hi Niel

I removed the plastic holder that houses the ball and it appears to be working ok - I will double check that they are infact is locking up - they are on the rear safety belts and I have not yet had anyone in the back using them
