How to get my rear seat belts to work properly?


Asked by Apr 28, 2015 at 09:16 AM about the 1991 Toyota Celica GT Convertible

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I removed the seat belt assembly and saw rust and some corrosion of the metal ball.  
Bought a replacement that looked in good condition on Ebay.  Numbers are not exactly
the same but it looks identical to old unit.  It also doesn't work when installed.  Ball
doesn't stay in indentation and it keeps the ratchet engaged. Any help appreciated.
