Hello guys

I have a question about the automatic seatbelt on the drivers side. Of course the other side works just fine. I currently have the motor unpluged and just lift the belt over me to use it. That really blows so I would like to fix it. Unfortunately. I took everything apart and found the problem, the gear that drives on the flat cable is slipping like there is not enough tention on it, or the plastic gear is worn. The gear really dosen't look all that bad. I cant see any way to re adjust the tention. Does any one know where the adjustment is, or if there is any adjustment. If I hold the parts together the gear will stay meshed in with the flat drive cable and operate the belt. Any help ?

Thanks Mike

There is no adjustment, and will probably have to be replaced as a unit.

Yes, That's what I was thinking. I would hate to replace it with a used part and have the same problem. I just cant see any reason for this to out of wack, unless the flat cable is streatched out. Nice mullet by the way.

Thanks Mike
