Hello all,

Where is the best place to buy these?

I've just noticed my drivers one is broken :(

have looked on the oem parts list.

its on there but there isn't a part number?

is it a main dealer part only?

Many thanks

Mark

Hi Mark

Try on here;

I realise that you have an ///M, but I think that the same part is used across the range. I'm sure someone more knowledgable than me will confirm, though.

Good luck!!

Hi Mark

Item 5, if you click on it then scroll down the page it shows the part number.

Seems odd that they both don't retract fully. :-\

How loose are they when you feed the belt back in?

Well drivers side will almost go back may be about 4/5" in short

but the passenger side about 1/1 to 1/2 ft

how hard is it to strip down and WD40 it ?

sorry if I am teaching grandama to suck eggs, and you all know about it! I was exploring the site the other day and was investigating the wiki and found a wiki entry on fitting/fixing the very item "seat belt guides" I think it was written by Snoops. and I thought is was so clear and took away all the fear of undertaking the unknown that I had to PM Snoops! there are pictures and even a "thing" identified for undoing the stitching. I thought is was a great entry making the fix so much less daunting.

Or you could try this......

zedder3 posted this one. (on the other site)

My Dad came up with a classic for sorting this out.
As the retainers were broken and could turn round, he drilled into each of the parts which are normally not joined together (in the gap), with a tiny drillbit, and inserted a metal pin into the holes.
This stays in place, holding the retainer together as per the above method, but using a small pin instead of the wrap. Genius!

The principle for adjusting the tension on the seat belt reel is the same as for a roller blind.The difficult part is accessing the reel.Once you have the reel out,the adjustment will be obvious.

However, if you are not adept mechanically,it's not wise to mess with inertia reel mechanisms. [-x
