I need to get my seat belts refurbished.
They don't recoil properly, and I always have to feed them back in by hand, which is becoming a pain in the bahookie.

Can anyone recommend a company that could refurbish them?

Thanks for your input.

I tried WD 40 already, didn't make a lot of difference, but unlike your 9-3, my car is 40 years old.!

Not a problem on my 96 - though static belts have their own issues (the dog always gets her paws tangled in them when getting into the back).
Yours probably just need a good clean.
Have a look at https://uk.video.search.yahoo.com/searc ... tion=click.

Picking up this old thread again.
I have tried thoroughly washed and cleaned the belts, but though it improved things marginally, not really much better. I am therefore still trying to find some company that can fully refurbish them.

Don't know of anyone up here, but there's a company I've heard of down South that might be worth giving a ring - http://seatbeltservice.co.uk/ (they claim to offer a mobile service, but I suspect Fife may be a bit far !)

A quick Google of 'seat belt repairs' gives quite a few results too.

I ended up using these guys in Bedfordshire.

http://www.safetybeltservices.co.uk/

They've done one belt, and I got it back in about 3 days.
New webbing, recoiling properly. £75 including return postage

2nd belt is away at the moment.

Very good service.

We've sent a few customers their way and had good feedback. Good to hear another good report about their service.

Re tensioned my 9k's. Surprisingly easy if you have 4 hands. Have a go.
