If the belt rewinder should ever fail and the motor stops running, you can use the gear release to pull the webbing completely out of the belt rewinder without having to cut it.
The following procedure:
- Unplug the power cord from the electrical outlet.
- Remove the belt retractor from the belt box by unscrewing the two screws.
- Remove the release clip from the storage compartment.
The release clip is a small, red plastic U-bolt.
On older models, the bracket has also been black or brass-colored.
- Press the release clip into the two small slots.
You can't push the clip all the way in, but you should notice that you are pushing a spring back with the clip. Then hold the clip in this position and pull the webbing out as far as possible.
Release the webbing from the fastening hook and pull it completely out of the belt rewinder.
