Hi, I know this is sort of an old topic, but just thought I'd throw it
On my 81, the shoulder belt was stuck (wouldn't retract or otherwise
Took off the panel. Saw suspicious looking balled up mess of a steel
tape, just above the roller.
Nudged it. KABLOOEY! Spring went flying out and just basically made
By the way, this thing looks like a steel tape inside of an orange
"can" about the size of a silver dollar or thereabouts, and there is a
white plastic cover that goes over it.....
So I am trying to find a replacement for this .... I haven't been able
to find it in the catalogs, and haven't been to the junkyard.
Any thoughts? Does anyone know what this gizmo might be correctly
called. I am calling it "seatbelt retractor" but not finding it......
Would I be better off replacing the whole seat belt etc?
Thanks in advance
