Just bought a 1990 MR2 GT Turbo and noticed that the seat belts don't seem to lock when i pull on them... This happens for both driver side and passenger.

This doesn't seem normal to me and would like to know if I should be getting this seen to asap or not :confused:

EDIT: FFS this is in the wrong section... can a mod move it pweease? :rolleyes:

Unlike most US cars, which use an inertia system (locks when the belt is extended), the MR2 ( and most Japanese cars) use a pendulum system ( locks on de-cel).

And there is a lever in the door jams that disengages the mechanism when the door is open.
