Driver's seat belt won't retract

3 months after buying the Lude, the dealer replaced my driver's side front seatbelt as it didn't retract. At 50K+ out of warranty the thing started to not retract again. Does anyone know a fix for this other than another replacement? I looked at the manual and it doesn't appear to be an adjustable mechanism.

Re: Driver's seat belt won't retract

Take it back to the dealer, there's a lifetime warranty on seatbelts.

^most of us aren't the original owner, shouldn't matter but you could always call to verify.

Re: Driver's seat belt won't retract

Yeah I'm pretty sure there's a lifetime warranty on all of Honda's seatbelts regardless of original owner or not. Safety sh!t, ya know?

Re: Driver's seat belt won't retract

You dont have to be the original owner just take it in and be like Fix it! And they will.

Had to go and get my passenger buckle replaced cause my best friend insisted on jamming the seatbelt in the buckle and forcing it in odd directions.

forcing things in odd directions could be painful...




I have a lazy seatbelt, but it doesn't matter because I don't wear them!

Re: Driver's seat belt won't retract

Thanks for the responses. Walked in, said it won't retract properly and they ordered a replacement-NO CHARGE, no questions asked, but they know I bought it new there too.
