Hi..There i see your question hasn't been answered..do you still require any assistance with this?

 

If so what is actually wrong with the belt? just to clarify - is this the belt reel itself or the receiver....

The belt reel is very slow in returning and will not return without manual help. The belt has the same symptoms as the previous belt.

Hi..there thanks for your reply..

 

Ok..In a sense this will likely be the actual return/spring mechanisim thats retract the belt back - this will be inside the actual Inertia Reel unit down behind the trim on the centre pillar near the bottom this will also be part of the SRS system - the mechanisim is either broken or simply become weakend and thus you get the symptoms as you have in regards XXXXX XXXXX to manaully feed it back in..you should also properly check the belt it self isnt twisted so ensure that is happening here - its is possible if you can take the trim off the centre pillar till you can see the reel and spray some wd-40 inside the mechanisim part only aswell as observe the belt is actually retracting evenly and straight and not looking slightly twisted - the down side with problems like this seeing as its most likely the mechanisim that gone is "its has" to be replacement job im afraid - I certainly wouldnt advise or recommend anyone to remove the reel and take it apart.being critical safety feature for the person using the belt - And as you found before - that would be the initial reason for both garages to replace the Inertia Reel unit as whole rather then hopefully repair in which there are no what you would term as "serviceable parts inside" it has to be full replacement..I do hope this helps
