My 72 has retractable seatbelts for the back seat. I can't get one of them to pull out. It is stuck in the retracted position. I plan on taking them out to clean and dye them. Any ideas on how to get this belt to pull out? TIA,

I have had them get stuck such that I needed to allow it to retract more before it would come out. Like the ratchet was hung up and needed to release. I had to take the seat out push the belt toward the retractor, then it (clicked) came loose and would pull out.
PS: don't get carried away with oil on these as they can gum up and not retract well. Use a little very light oil. Been there done that.
If the above doesn't work, clean the mechanism out with WD40 or similar as it may be stuck.
