I treated mine just one time about two years ago and it is still working very well. Prior to treating it, the belt had to be fed in for the last 18" or so.

You said it, Ron. I just got it back in, with crack. Makes me sad.

Back to the main topic, I think the reason my belts were hard to retract is because they'd become twisted the wrong way. I got the driver's side turned, hopefully the right way.

Unhappy

I didn't crack mine, just kind of gave up and put it back together before I did. BTW I was taking it off for s different reason.

Mine constantly get stuck/twisted and it makes me nuts! I'm going to order a new one (pair) I think and just deal with pulling the interior apart.

mine started doing the exact same thing. Dealership said the warranty only covers 5 years or 50,000 miles for the seatbelt. My local dealership said the retractor and belt are all one piece and costs about 230 dollars.

Glad I found this post. Really the only complaint of my newfound Bullitt. Will try armor all and post back with results

There was a TSB issued for this problem
TSB-04-24-21 not sure if they would still honour it.

The part number for the fix is YR3Z-63611D70-AA some kind of teflon tape that helps the seat belt roll back.

I have a Ford dealer as a customer and as a lark I got the parts lady to see if a seat belt was still available. As far as she could see only black is still available--then she mentioned the service dept regularly gets complaints about the Mustangs seat belt and they use silicone (Armour-all is mostly silicone) to lube the belt and it really works.

Now that is interesting.

I knew I could use my Armour All for something besides slinging it up from the tires to the bodywork....
