My seat belts will not move to adjust. Does that make any sense? They are just stuck on one size and believe me, one size will not fit all. Any home remedies short of replacement?
I'm just a posting fool this evening arent' I? hehe
Thanks all

Sounds like the retractors are stuck. Try taking them out,or at least the covers off,and give them a juicin' of WD-40 or other penetrating oil. I had to do this on my Torino.Try working them while spraying the mechanisms.

Beware,if you decide to take it apart,there is a recoil spring in there. It WILL fly out at you if you don't take care in dissassembly!

Thanks for the tips and especially for the warning. Sure would hate to get a spring in my eye.
