Take it to the dealership, its a safety issue and is better left to the dealership to fix because if it isn't fixed right it is very dangerous for obvious reasons

Cut it and pull it off. Be sure to take a look at the installation of the belt before removing it. You will need to install the new in the same configuration. Tightening the belt can be tricky.

I have the same problem in a 2000 Sebring. You can't pull the seat belts out of the seat's retractor. According to the owner's manual the seat belt mechanism needs power on to allow the seat belts to extend. When you open the door or put the key to accessory position power is allowed. The fuse for the seat belts is listed with the flashers and the flashers work ok. I will post more after I fix it. There is a wire connector under the seat that controls the seat belt mechanism. You have to make sure it is connected otherwise the seat belt will remain in the stuck position. I had the same problem, seat belt was stuck and I couldn't use it. I discovered the wire wasn't connected under the seat. Once I reconnected it and turned on the car I was able to pull the seat belt out.

The 1998 should be the same as the 94 there is a tensionometer that a 3/4 rathet will fit it. If you are standing in front of the engine look to tleft where the belt is and towards the back. It looks like a 2-3 in wheel. Put your ratchet or breaker bar in the square and pull this should loosen your belt

Apparently there is a major problem with these seatbelt doing this. You'll probably need to replace the whole unit.

Use a 3/4 inch pull bar or wrachet tool and take the pressure off the belt tensioner. Then just remove the belt and there should also be a diagram of how to do this on the inside of your engine compartment along the top of the grill somewhere.

Start engine, idle in park. Pull dipstick, wipe off and reinsert. Pull dipstick and read the level.

A cop can pull you over for not having a seat belt or anything else. Under the Patriot Act, they don't need a reason to pull you over.

A seat belt ticket in Virginia is about 25 dollars for not wearing a seat belt. A policeman can not pull you over just for a seat belt violation. He must observe another traffic offense in order to pull you over.

The best way to change the belt is to cut the old belt in half and then use the old belt to pull up on the tension pulley it will slide on easily every time. (takes two people to do this one the pull and ond to slide the belt on.

Well you have to loosen up the belt by putting a socket and awrench on the tensioner and pull to release the tension of the belt. Then remove the cerp belt. Then there are two long bolts on the alternator remove them and the two wires and boom its out then repeat these steps backwords to put the new one on

Insert a 1/2 inch pull handle into tensioner and pull toward front of car to release tension. Remove and replace belt. Be sure to route belt correctly.

There should be a tensioning pulley that can be fitted with a socket and wrench. You can then pull the pulley thus loosening the tension on the belt and then pull the belt off. Install the same way.

The easiest way to test a belt tensioner is to pull upward on the belt. The belt should be tight with very little slack if the tensioner is working.

Depending on how steep of a grade, it may be normal operation. The seat belts use a swinging weight in them to lock during an accident. If the grade is steep enough, the weight may be in the locked position.

remove belt, remove alternator plugs, then bolts. pull out alternator. then undo bolts for bracket and remove.

You can pull from the top but it's super tight. Pull the harmonic off, remove the rear exhaust manifold, unbolt the pollution pump and compressor and set aside...pull out

It's pretty easy top cahnge a serpentine belt. There is a belt tensioner on the front of the engine. It should have a square hole in it for a 1/2 inch ratchet or breakover bar. using one of those tools, pull back on the spring loaded tensioner and you will get slack in the belt. Slip it off and replace it.

Pull it all the way out and then you can untwist it.
