Thumbs down Another seat belt problem.

We have aguti seats fitted to our van which are driving me, but especially my wife, absolutely crackers.

Should we move even an inch forward in our seats.....lock. Try to pull very gently on the belt.....lock. And that is it, lock lock lock lock. Annoying does not describe it. To just be able to lean forward to adjust sat nav, radio or whatever takes an age.

We had the same seats on our last van and never had this problem.

So, is there any easy fix?

I am not a number. I am a free man.
But only when my wife says so.

The back seats on our car are the same

A kid lock

I think you have to pull out the belt slowly to full before releasing it

I think,

Ok I'm useless but I'm trying

Hi Sandra

We've tried that until we're blue in the face. Literally

We have clips to prevent the belt from retracting, adjusted to enable us to lean forward a bit, but will lock if you go forward quickly, i.e. if you break sharp, Halfords have them.

Some seat belts have nothing more complicated than a large ball bearing that moves forward and locks the belt in a collision.
So that means, some belts act as yours do when the vehicle is parked nose down on a hill for example.
If it is possible, have a look at the seat belt mounting and determine if it is completely level when the MH is level.
If it is buried, get a techo to check it.

Hi Bill,
Thanks for that but this problem is there ALL the time, even when driving along. It's so bluddy annoying. I mean, you literally can't move more than an inch.

Check your seat belt is mounted correctly to the vehicle I suspect as Bill has already stated they are tilted forward so thinks the vehicle is permanently on a slope pointing downhill. This will stop the belt from coming out.

This is me
