I have noticed that the drivers seat belt in my astra doesnt retract (i think thats the right word).
It pulls out fine, but when i unclip it, it doesnt pull itself back up to wind itself up, it just falls to the floor to the side of the drivers chair.
The actual restraining mechanism works, just doesnt retract properly.
Any ideas on how i can fix it, coz its pissing me off having to manually feed the belt up, everytime i get out of the car!
just go to the breakers ang get a replacement reel. its just the spring broken inside the inertia mechanism.
I thought that might be the case.
How easy is it to take out the old seat belt? Wheres it bolted onto?
And how do i take it out, coz the interior side panel where the belt goes through the hole is there. Do i have to take it out? Or can i undo the belt from the bottom and just feed it through the hole?
