That's exactly what it's for. Reread the first line in the first post, and then read what I indicated for lube qualities in the text above the 5th picture in the first post.

WD-40 doesn't really have those qualities.

Great tip on the seat belts being side specific. I took mine off years ago and then just put them on not knowing this. I will have to look into it, 50 percent chance its right i guess.

Wow, perfect timing.

I was getting so aggravated with mine just yesterday and I was threating to cut the beotches out..... some major use of profanity was heard within a one mile radius of my Jeep.

I'll have to give em' a lube job and take a deep breath.

This is a nicely written piece!
Heres my write-up(in progress), of removing the XJ interior. It already covers the seat belts though.

Nope, this one slipped though the cracks.

I didn't see it until it got bumped up to the first page. I'm going to pull mine out in the next day or so and give them a shot of lube.

I've got some other mods I've been working on the last couple of days and this isn't on my priority list (yet).

I just saw this one too, thanks Max. My driver side seat belt doesn't catch when I slam on the brakes. Between that and no airbag its been too risky to drive it so its gathering pine needles under a tree. I'm going to try this and see if it has any effect. I'll let you know how it works out.

Just pulled the retractor off my 94 YJ. It had a totaly different assembly It lacked any visible parts, and it appeared as though all the mechanical parts of it were built into the housing.

Anyone run into that setup? Is there a fix for them?

Unfortunately i have to add tot he resurrection of the old thread, but my 95YJ seat belt does not look like that at all. When it is fully extended there is stitching in the belt to restrict any further extension, therefore you cannot see the retractor.

I tried using PB blaster on the sides, even though I could not see the plastic barrel, but it is till far from new.

Any ideas?
