    I solved my seatbelt retraction problem by spraying the length of the belt with furniture polish (foam type). With the seat belt fully pulled out I just sprayed it on and let the belt go in and out a few times. It's not quick but it does retract more than it used to.

    Problem is with the guide on the seat and the anchor points. There are a couple aftermarket and DIY fixes available.

    I had the Kumoi Motors guides on my standard seats and they improved things marginally. Photos courtesy of Japaneazi.

    Others have simply adjusted the position of the stock plastic guides.
