Does anyone else suffer from slowly retracting seat belts ? On my V10, 2004, they take an age to retract, particularly at the front and they are starting to get caught in the doors. When pulled smartly they lock as they should so seem to be working OK. Don't really want to start spraying WD40 in there as it may muck up the material ! Are there any quick fixes ? Many thanks, SIMON

Hi the usual solution is to fully extract the belt by pulling slowly so the the belt is at the end of the travel, then let the belt slowly return keeping the belt in the middle of guide in the door pillar. If that does not resolve the issue then remove the plastic panel at foot of the pillar to see if there some obstruction. Most likely to be an alignment of the belt as it rewinds. If you must use some lubricant then use silicone spray.
Good luck
