Previous CTR the seatbelts whizzed back into place at a rapid pace. These ones just dont seem to move and Ive to coax them back into position.

Read somewhere (albeit the info was a good few years old) that honda do lifetime guarantee on the seatbelts. Think its an easy fix?

Also my passenger one makes an awful noise, I end up having to reach over and pull it onto the seat to stop it, bang and clatters over every bump. I have thought about sticking some padding on the pillar trim where the seatbelt buckle touches the plastic

Mine are not exactly quick to retract either

Yeah, if mine get twisted at all in my CTS, they don't retract. Gotta straighten them out first.
Do you have to wind yours out quite a way mate? I only reeled mine out enough that I thought would be the twisting point. I'm quite skinny so the belt never gets pulled so far with me but never considered the previous owner might have been a bit bulkier.

dougie175, previous CTR and this one both did that. Rarely have passengers so bugs my happiness when I forget to hook it over the seat after they get out. Not the easiest thing to sort when traveling along and I always forget when to fix when Ive stopped!

Yeah it annoys the heck out of me, it annoys me even more when I have slipped it onto the seat and it drops off and starts whilst Im having a spirited drive.

Seems I am not the only one, someone must have a decent solution that doesn't interfere with the belt function but stops the rattle

With the type s at least it has a movable head rest and I'm sure someone used a seatbelt extend thing? Kind of like the type seen on bmw where it holds the belt out a little offering easier reach to the seatbelt. This was fastened onto the metal prongs of the head rest, sadly that option isn't viable with the type r seats.

Found it.

Ah right yeah couldn't picture what you meant. I have a Type R seat on my drivers but type s for the passenger... don't ask. My type r seat is covered so its not completely noticeable, that's what im sticking too.

That would cure the noise problem, but would also make it a nightmare getting anyone in the back, however that isn't something I do often!

I can see you just unclip them, but its hard enough getting people to understand lifting the latch let alone explaining you have to remove the belt and re-clip it in again!

Im thinking a soft pad on the pillar trim will be discreet and stop the noise
