Default seat belt

My drivers side seat belt has been acting up lately. It doesn't make that familiar "click" when inserted. it's a little harder to get in but it does fasten and it does release. I've tried wd40, lithium grease but don't want to gum up the mechanism. I've seen them online but wanted to ask if anybody hs changed theirs and did it involve removing the seat.

Thanks in advance.....

Look for a button, paper clip, coin, debris that fell into the assembly.
Flash light, dental tools, let gravity help do the removal work for you in
an obstruction is found.

Yes to change, best to remove the seat.
There is electrical wiring to the seat belt assembly.

Top tip, place a heavy blanket over the still panel to avoid a scratch from the seat
upon removal.

I just recently removed my seatbelts & had them re-webbed with custom webbing. You do have to at least lift up the seat (not remove completely). (4) 15mm nuts hold the seat to the floor. Check out Safety Restore if you need your belts repaired.

Thank you both. I'll try the debris thing first. That makes sense. If not then I'll pick up a replacement and install......

I suggest using a graphite lube. It will last much longer than WD-40 and will not gunk up the mechanism.

Check out Safety Restore. Send them your belts & they have 24-hour turn around.
