    Has anyone a suggestion on how to free up sticky seat belts ?
    They pull out fine but don't recoil freely or fully..

    Cheers

    Hi Jim
    From a trade point of view, seat belts are a highly safety critical item and as such, seat belt repair is a no no.
    all we are prepared to do, is remove, inspect and blow out with an air line and re fit.
    Under no circumstances should fluids oils etc be applied to a set belt mechanism.
    replacement is the correct course of action.:Eeek:
