    Default Seat belt trouble

    The seat belt on my bx suddenly locked up, has anyone else heard of this? Any info would be appreciated, thanks all.

    Just a guess here as I have seen this happen on car belts. Use a thin screw driver and try and free the ratchet mechanism while gently pulling the belt out. My thinking is the edge of the belt is twisted and the ratchet locked

    How old is your BX? I ran into the same problem with my B series after several years. Tried the screw driver and broke the whole thing...

    Took it apart and there was rust on the mechanism inside. by design, it isn't sealed and moisture eventually rusts/corrodes parts inside.

    Not saying it happens to every one of them, just my experience.
    I thank God everyday for all of the blessings he has given me- especially for the one's I do not recognize or see!

    Ya I saw that on a thread somewhere but mine isn't even a year old. I haven't had a chance to take it apart yet, hopefully tomorrow . Thanks for the info.

    I've seen this from a couple of kubota tractors. Not sure why they seem to be prone to failure. It also seems 50/50 split if it's the ratchet side that goes bad or the button side. Odd how that happens. I found two online if you want. Looks like the later one is a touch cheaper.

    The forums are a great place to find information....but also a great place to find speculation. Only you can determine the real problems with your tractor. We're here to help you find the correct way to do it.
