<'99 Sonata seat belt not retracting>
I can't address your particular problem, but in the past when I
had "clunkers" I solved the retraction problem by:
-extending the belts all the way out
-soaking them with some warm water and dish detergent, not
immersing them, just saturating them
-squeezing out the water
-rinse, lather, repeat
-then, apply Son of a Gun or similar to the belts and guides
So far, it has always worked and not caused any problems.
Admittedly, I have not been in an accident. I did my '93 Nissan
Sentra when I got it two years ago and it's still retracting.
