Seat belt rebuild?

Recommended Posts

Boring stuff, seatbelts. Mine don’t catch when pulled away from the chest quickly. I assume they should, or I’m hitting the windshield. Anybody rebuild the mechanism? ‘78 BRAT. Thanks.

I pulled all the slack out sprayed the bejeezis out of the roller mechanization with contact cleaner then worked the belt in and out put a few drops of tri flow lube and they put started working again. These were the jump seat belts and they were basically froze when I started. Hope this works as well for you.

Thanks for checking in. I haven’t tried it yet. I think there’s hope as I’m starting to get a catch here and there early in the belt’s travel. That said I’ve found that new universal fit belts are available, will probably go that route. Thanks though!
