Seat Belt Retractor

Recommended Posts

My wife's 97 with 130 000 km has a sluggish driver's seat belt retractor. I pulled the B pillar trim panel and removed the anchor bolt for the belt. Closer inspection revealed that the retractor assembly has explosive pretensioners that I did not want to mess with, as I am rather attached to my eyes and fingers. I shot some silicone lubricant into the retractor spring areas wherever I could manage, and it did help the problem somewhat, but not entirely. I rather expect that the dealership is going to say "new seatbelt" and it will be major bucks. Has anyone found a fix?
