Default Seat Belt ?

Is there anyway to tighten up the recoil of the front seat belts. Mine are VERY slow. Most of the time I have to feed them back.

This usually a result of dirt, dust, French fries, etc in the belts rolls on the retractor. Pull the belt out to full extension and vacuum, tweeze etc to get dirt dust out. Then roll the belt in and out a dozen times and repeat when necessary.

You will be wishing for those lost french fries when the zombie apocalypse comes. In Arkansas we call that "emergency food".

(Sorry, I'm no help either.)

After cleaning all the funk out of them, maybe use a little siclicon lubricant on the roller and see if that helps. I haven't done it, but it's just a suggestion.
