Hi,
I write from Germany and will be very grateful for any good advice. After eight years of not driving my C5 (1999), the lower seat belt retractor (driver side) was stuck. It turned out that the spring in the retractor is completely corroded like it had been resting in the sea for several years. Does anybody know how to obtain replacement for the spring or where I can get a working retractor without having to replace the entire seat belt mechanismn?
Unfortunately, Im to stupid to insert a photo:laughing:



Thanks a lot in advance !
Martin

Thanks a lot,

seems I have found a complete seat belt unit with both retractors in good condition in Germany for around 110 bucks. As the original seat belts seem to be available no longer and regarding transport costs and import taxes, I will try this option first. If this doesnt work, I will call them.

Have a nice Easter Monday
Martin
