the one thing that drives me nuts with my jeep is jumping out and closing the door and hear the thump.seat belt caught over the striking bracket. anyone got a fix for this?:banghead:
i will give this a try and lub the retactor. thanks let you know how it goes.My seatbelt used to do the same thing and I found an easy fix quite by accident..
I was working on another project and had to unbolt the seatbelt reel from the floor of the Jeep.
The reel wound up as far as it would go so it was hanging about were the door striker is.
To pull the reel back down to re-bolt it to the floor, the reel had to be dead level.
But when I rebolted it to the floor, the seatbelt retracted all the way for the first time!
That was about 12 months ago and has been OK since.
I'm guessing it somehow retensioned itself by being forced to take a lot more seatbelt than it usually does.
