rear belt locked

I'm sure this has been gone over before but I can't find it by using the search function

The self retracting LR seat belt in my 92 hatch back is locked about 1/2 way out---it won't go out or in

how do I get it to unlock and retract? Can someone point me to a prior thread or "splain me" what I need to do

I did find a link to a brand new OEM one for sale for $427, I think I'll pass on that price

yeah I would pass on that too-in the past I have gotten belts unstuck by giving it a sharp pull and then immediately giving it some slack and perhaps shaking it from side to side also-

eBay link

You can contact this ebay seller and tell him what you need. Good prices too.

I tried wiggling, shaking, pulling slowly, pulling fast/short--all a no go---I even tried taking the clear plastic side cover off and removing the "planetary side gears" with still no avail---maybe something got "sucked up"in there with the belt and has it jammed?

I see several used ones for sale on the web, but was just hoping to fix what I have, maybe not.

left rear? what color are you after? I just pulled some grey ones from a '91. I have no use for them. if you cant find one on your side of the border let me know.
you pay for shipping and its yours.
