  • Seat Belt tension

    Hi All,

    Has anyone had any problems with the front seat belts not retracting properly on a 2001 model 8 seater?

    Both the front drivers and passengers belts retract very slowly and need to be straightened out and "helped"
    to make them retract fully.

    It's not a major issue but if I don't make sure they retract fully the buckle gets caught in the door.

    Is there any way to increase the tension on the winder or could it be a lubrication issue?

    Any advice would be most welcome.

    Thanks Heaps

        Get some hot soapy water (washing up liquid will do) and a rag and give the belts a good clean. 9 out of 10 times this fixes the problem. Make sure you clean the whole length of the belt and make sure you dry them as much as you can with a dry rag when done.

            A good clean of belts as advised and a blow out of retractor mechanism with compressed air (I would carefully use a cleaning fluid (brake cleaner) too but be careful there is no residue as it will gum up roller mechanism and make your problem worse)

              Mine is blessed with seat belt impotance as well! They are pretty grubby though so maybe I'll try that first. Thanks for the tip.

                After cleaning the belt and letting it dry, try some silicon spray on the webbing and guide slots where it runs through.
