Default Seat Belt Challenge

For the entire time I have had my 02 Ranger XL there have been problems with the seat belts retracting all the way when unbuckled. They will retract but not without assistance. They are constantly being slammed in the doorjamb and dragged on the ground.

Has anyone come up with a reasonable solution for this challenge? It is a known problem with the later models - post 1997. Some have suggested teflon tape, some have suggested spraying the belt with silicone and things like that but none have really solved the problem.

Sure would like to hear any ideas. This is really the only annoying thing about this truck. My previous Rangers 84, 90 and 93 did not have this problem.

Thanks

Russ

I was thinking: I hope someone posts a seat belt question in the WHEELS AND TIRES section.
