Thanks Steve, went down that road, Amsafe is not approved by the FAA to repair their own product, told me to go through Cessna which only sells new ones for $662.65.
Just a word of advice, never accidentally grab the cable when removing the seat from the aircraft, the plastic swivel that connects the cable end to the inertia reel is very easy to break. Ugh!!
Live and learn.

I hope I'm not telling you what you already know, but I believe you'll have to get the parts you need from, or get it repaired by AmSafe.
Here's it's URL: www.amsafe.com . The phone is 602 850 2850.

Let me know what you find out.

Does anyone know where I can get my Amsafe inertia reel repaired? P/n 505589-401.
The 90 degree plastic swivel where the cable attaches snapped off.

Hi Lyle;
I have scanned a couple of parts manual pages for you. They will be included in this response. In the system picture there's a pic of your system on the left edge of the pic (when the pic is right side up). That shows the cable, (item 23 p/n S1239-1 "control-parking brake". It appears that there is a spring with that control

The return spring at the bottom is item 29 p/n 0541172-1 "spring-return.
Unfortunately I can't find a source for either of these part numbers.

McFarlane Aviation has S1239 controls for different applications such as pulling the fuel strainer drain, and I expect you might be able to modify it to work.

McFarlane also has a wide selection of springs.

You could try going to a salvage yard such as wentworth and ask what they have.
