Faulty seatbelt on my E88

Post by ZKhalid » Fri Apr 20, 2018 9:35 pm

Evening,

I noticed yesterday that my seatbelt had been playing up in terms of it retracting out to buckle up. Whilst it was firm yesterday, it gave in after a few nudges and that was that. However, today it seems it doesn't want to retract from its initial position, which had happened at the carwash and was forced to drive home with no belt.

Being its an E88 and we've had sunny weather in the UK, I thought maybe the seatbelt side has been exposed in the sun too long and that caused an issue?
My local garage didn't want to touch it since it was a safety issue and I had called BMW Solihull who did say they've had a similar call for an E88 earlier in the day.

I have it booked on Monday with labour rates at £90 an hour, any possible fixes before I go in?
