I've come to fit the seatbelts on the Sprint but none of them seem to work anymore. When they was first taken off they all retracted in as you would expect but now they won't pull out, all four have done the same. One of the rear ones I did manage to pull out so far and then it locked. It will still retract in so I've put pegs on the strap part to hold it out but it won't pull out again. Anyone got any ideas?
Hi Mark, seems odd that all four should stick. Couple of thoughts, have you tired a squirt of WD40 ? Also, I don't know the internals of a seat belt mechanism but I'm wondering if they need to be held a particular way up to work properly (I'm assuming you're trying them before fitting in the car).
Hi Spitz. They have been in my shed for the past year so maybe they've got a bit damp. I haven't tried any WD40 yet but I will give it ago. I haven't fitted the belts yet. I tried one of the rear ones first, which didn't work. So then I tried the other three and they are all the same.
WD 40 to the rescue yet again!!
I had forgotten how to fit the rear seat belt reels in the door pillar and spent ages trying all sorts of weird configurations - then realised that it slides between the mounting plates.....Italian Logic.
