I was thinking about this today. Remembering what someone mentioned that the retractor is actually in the bottom of the seat, and looking at the hinge mech. in the seat, it's really dirty in there. Spending as much time as I do in the driver's seat with the belt retracted, if all that dust and dirt gets into the spring causing too much friction between the layers of the spring. Thus, poor retraction. I think all it would need is a good cleaning and re-lubing.
... If we could get to the mechanism.
