MK2 Golf Rear seat belts.
« on: January 09, 2019, 12:26:08 pm »
Hi there, I installed OEM mk2 golf seat belts in my car after getting them unlocked from full retraction....
However once unbuckled the belts retracted and cannot be pulled out to be buckled back in....

How do i fix this issue?

Any help would be greatly appreciated :D

Thanks!

first thought is, is the car parked on level ground? slopes can upset the ratchet mechanisms
