Seatbelt Spring Tightening

My driver's side seatbelt does not "take up" as well as it should anymore. Has anyone tightened the spring preload on these things? Can it be adjusted to provide more pull on the belt?

I have re-wound mine once. It started off catastrohic as it uncoiled in my face. But I eventually got it back together. I think I ended up using ty-wraps to hold it together, then cutting them off just before re-assembly.

Dealing with these things is mightly tricky, and if you've re-wound a spring that exploded, then my hat's off.

I have the same problem, but was told that you could not do anything about it and that you had to replace it So I am very interested to know if it can be done and how?

I would recommend you look for a used one. I'm pretty sure this was a VW part no. for my car. I ended up replacing it, not because it wouldn't retract, but because the 'emergency catch' looked a bit dodgy.

If it was on my wife's side I'd take a chance, but this was the drivers side.

Yeah, my passenger side does not work on my 72T. Too bad I do not have a wife anymore... On the driver side, you just have to pull very patiently to get the proper lenght. A royal PITA. Aren't these old cars grand....
