Right rear seat belt retractor will not release, so passenger in that seat cannot use belt as required.

Both rear shoulder belts get twisted when retracting-which cause retractor to bind-hang up internally/just like on 98-99 olds intrigue. Same basic design as on Regal and Grand Prix and other Buick models-have same condition/olds came out with recall to install guide-to keep belt from getting twisted. Buick customer assit stated no future recall in the works for Buick. Why not"??"
