Seatbelt question

I have an 89 Wrangler and the seat belt receiver part is apparently worn out. It won't lock onto the male clip part. I've tried WD-40 and poking and prying with a small screwdriver. I can't see how it's put together, so I can't take it apart. A friend of mine said his daughter has a Kia or Hyundai or something along that line and her seat belt stopped working, and turns out there was a factory recall on something in her seat belt system. Any ideas if there is a recall on this thing, or any ideas on how to fix it?
Thanx.

I think you can go to jeep.com and somehwhere there is a place to enter your vin to check for recalls. My memory could be flawed.

Checked the site and didn't find anything that would help me. Guess I'll hit a wrecking yard. Thanx much for the info.

I had the same problem with my seat belt when I bought my jeep, I took mine apart and inside there is a peice of tempered steel that is like a V shape that puts pressure on the button that you press to release the seatbelt. Over time that looses its rigidity or it breaks. Best bet is to replace the seatbelt. Not worth fixing when its ment to save your life in the event of an accident. Check the local pay and pull you should be able to swap in another belt from a different model jeep.

That's the reason I was thinking it might be a recall item, since it is meant to save your bod in an accident.

I picked up a set of front (driver & pass) seat belts off ebay for $88 shipped. They look nice and work great.

I need a few other things from the wrecking yard anyway (passenger seat, door strap) so I'll just try to find something around here (willamette valley).
Thanx for the info.
