    Default Seat Belt Retractors?

    I have a 01 Tundra and both the seat belt retractors are not really retracting the seat belts and I was wondering if there was a way of Tightening or replacing something?

    Look in the MODS forum. There is a fix for that.

    Save your time trying to 'fix' it. There was a thread where you take and rewind the spring tighter, I tried it and it was already maxed. Some have trimmed the plastic where the belt goes into the retractor assembly with good results. But there was a new 'better' retractor assmebly offered as a TSB fix. Not sure how much they would cost(if you're out of warranty). Mine totally suck now, but it doesn't bother me enough yet to go out and buy the 'improved' ones(I was out of warranty already after 1.5years). /Mike

    The seatbelts are covered under the 60k safety & emissions warranty or something like that. Your seat-belts are warranted for 5/60 whatever comes first.
    I just got both of mine replaced and they actually retract now. It's amazing.

    Default You sure?

    I had them look at mine just before going off the 3 year 36K warranty. They opened the door and pulled the seat belt down until it touched the door sill. Then they let go of it. If it would "eventually" retract all the way back by itself, then Toyota would not replace it under warranty. They did have a TSB where they stuck a piece of clear tape over the guide slot that everbody says to open up with sandpaper or dremel tool. If they will cover it for 5 years, I think I'm going back to pay them a visit!

    I thought that getting rid of the IFS and putting a Dana 44 under there would fix it but it didn't
