Customer Question
Can the seat belts...

Can the seat belts pass and driver be repaired to retract better

Mechanic's Assistant: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix with a Mercury. The Mercury Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so he can help you best.

As I say, I have a 2000 Sable with approximately 220,000 miles.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you hoping to fix this yourself?

The seat belts are slow to retract how can I fix same, since the whole unit are on back order and cost to much.

Mechanic's Assistant: Is there anything else the Mercury Mechanic should be aware of about your Mercury?

How do you stop a slit oil leak can additives solve the problem?

About the only thing that can be done short of replacing the retractors, is to clean the belt and clean at the upper anchor where the belt slides on, sometimes dirt and grime will get on this upper anchor and cause slow belt retraction, this about the only thing that can be done with these as they are serviced as a unit. I would use a interior stain cleaner, then try some armor all at the upper ancher, the armor all is really slick and should improve the retraction speed.

Additive will very rarely stop a oil leak, they may slow them down because the additive is really thick. Reparing the oil leak is the best action that could be taken.
