Seat belts

#1

The rear seat belt is stuck in the retractor. It can’t be pulled out to fasten the seat belt. We’ve tried pulling gently and at different angles.


#2

You need to replace it. Or, find someone willing to take it apart to find what is jamming it. But this can be difficult, since it is a failed safety item now. Most shops will want to replace it to avoid any liability.


#3

Did you buy this car used? It might have been deliberately altered to be used on a child seat.


#4

Call your Subaru dealer. Many/all? Subarus come with a lifetime seat belt warranty. See if yours is one.
