Default Seatbelt doesn't want to retract

I have done a lot of searches, all I found was a 3 year old thread about putting armourall on the belt and filing one of the guides. Mine you have to pull it back and it will retract. Well I have all my interior out right now and was wondering if anyone has found a better fix to the slow/no retract seatbelts?

I remember someone said that the guides before the roller get crusted up with human slime/beef.

Default Re: Seatbelt doesn't want to retract

After digging in all of mine I am stumped. Everything is clean and I can't find anything that could be a separate spring housing to pull and replace. I guess I will look at how ridiculously expensive it is to replace.

Yeah it really would be. But I'm working my rear off to keep this car looking absolutely stock. Can be a real headache as in this situation. I will try and find a good used one or just deal with mine. Got a lead on a used one now so fingers crossed

New product idea: seat belts that work. Common problem from what I've heard, not sure how these things worked new, but mine decide when they do and don't want to work properly. It's always a toss up.

I know you just took your interior out, so I should mention that the seat belts won't retract when they are out of the car. At least they didn't for me the last time I took them out. I think it has something to do with them being anchored and counter weighted maybe. Did you have this problem when they were in the car?
