Default How to re-tighten an inertia reel seat belt?

Anyone tried to do this, and yes, I do know it is risky to muck around with the seatbelts, but I am tight, poor, and don't really want to stump up a lot of money for a replacement.

And to go along with this, anyone know how to remove the centre pillar clothy type thing that the belt runs in behind?

Thanks.

Not sounding too good with this motor and its various little issues i must say.

On the plus side it gives you something to play with

Assuming they work on a spring type principle, I can't see how you can tighten it up once been 'stretched'

Spray the belt with silicone spray. Works a treat on the slowest to return belts.

I had to change the front seat belts after the pre-tensioners were fired upon (a small) impact. It's not too difficult but it is a pain to do.

Make sure you've disconnected the battery following the correct procedure and left it for half an hour to discharge the system.

If I recall correctly, the pillar cover is clipped in so you just have to pry it off. I have a 3-door so may be different if you have a 5-door.

Also, be careful with the height adjuster at the top of the pillar. I managed to break both sides when I did mine so now they're stuck in the highest position. If you do break it then you can always adjust the height before putting the cover back on.

LOL. Hey, if it was perfect, what else would I have to talk about here.

but yes, lots of issues, chopper need not reply here, but I think it needs to be sprayed a yellowy fruity colour

Needs a driveshaft oil seal, two front brake hoses, coolant hose into the heater matrix, timing belt kit and alternator belt.
I kinda factor in 500 - 1000 extra to fix faults after buying a car, and this one is no different.

Silicone spray? Will that not make it all greasy and ruin my expensive primark clothes?
