Default anyone else have seatbelt issues?

i'm having issues with my front seatbelts and it feels like they are progressing to get worse. they don't retract on their own very well. you pretty much have to do it yourself every time, or it'll get stuck in the door or just get in the way. also they're kinda tough to pull on too. and they don't strap you in tight, you kinda gotta pull on the belt a few times to tighten up.

so i think it has something to do with the tensioner or some mechanism. anyone else have this issue? if so, how did you fix it?

Ive been having the same issue lately. Its like the belt itself keeps getting snagged in the slot in the B pillar molding. It will retract most of the time but every one in a while it gets caught and I have to hold it at a different angle for it to retract.

Mine get held up sometimes too, they may have lost some tension. It must have done it to the previous owner to because there are some chips in the door jamb from being closed on it.

The 05 is having the same issue sometimes I sometimes play around with the plastic piece on the pillar and then I can get it to retract. It's only the drivers side and I'm guessing the reason is it's wearing out is from use since I hardly ever have a passenger with me. The 03 works fine, again hardly gets used these days.

Hmmm, maybe that's why mine doesn't have a problem, seeing as I only wear it once in a blue moon. Our cops don't enforce "click it or ticket"
