Seat Belt Retractors

Did some work on the passenger side belt tonight. I took the retractor out and per the above quote re-lubricated the assembly. I also wiped down the belt, but it seemed pretty clean. It made it a lot smoother but in the end I really didn’t notice any difference when retracting the belt, it still hangs. I am guessing the spring is just worn out and isn’t as strong when it gets near the end of the belt. I might look at getting the retrators off my parts car and seeing if I can safely wind the spring a bit tighter. It looks like it would require removing the clear plastic cover and not losing a finger in the process.
