Seat belt slow to retract - Interior/Exterior/Lights/Glass/Alarms/ICE/HVAC/Other - The Lotus Forums #ForTheOwners Jump to content

Hi all 

I've noticed, when taking the seat belt off, it's quite slow to retract, and needs coaxing back up, is there a fix to this? Or is it just age, and needing a new item.

Finally got round to trying this today, amazingly it operates like new again, and much quicker to retract. 

My 2010 has always been slow to retract - I have to feed it home. I am used to old bangers so I can't say I have given it a second thought.  Justin   

On the the plus side, it doesn't seem to leak in the rain....  Part of me panics when I hear any sound with it now!

The seatbelt on my 2010 is a bit slow too but I can live with it. I think I can recall a thread which gave advice about improving it's performance.

Not sure if this was the original thread I saw but it is one possible solution.

That's great, thank you! I've recently purchased some Wd40 Silicone spray, hopefully that will do the trick.
