Drivers seatbelt, Tourer by Dave

Not sure if there's a difference between driver and passenger belts, or Saloon and Tourer?

Mine had the little "button" (that holds the buckle at shoulder height when stowed) smashed when it got stuck in the door. Carl kindly sent me one, but it "escaped" from the envelope before it reached me.... :-(

Now the seatbelt is tardy on retracting, which means that each time I park up, there's a tedious 10 seconds of feeding the belt back on to the reel (and also some wear on the trim from doing this repeatedly)

So..... Anyone got a belt they can sell me?

NB Unless it's not advised to use second hand ones??

You can't be sure that a used one hasn't been "used" in some kind of accident. Therefore I would replace a seatbelt with a brand new spare part only.

You can't always be sure, but if you buy from someone you know, or you see the car it's from, then I don't see it's such a problem.

Well, Duncan, you're right. That's an exception.

Unless it has been recorded you may not know that a 2nd hand car that you buy has not been in an accident
