There's a ratcheting mechanism in the retractor. In a sudden stop it locks the belt so you won't be thrown forward in a crash. Sounds like it's sticking. A squirt of WD-40 will probably do the trick. HTH. -Jim

if you are a heaver person and you pull the seat belt all the way out it will ratchet and lock going back in, if you don't pull it all the way out it will act normal'

Having the same problem. Both stick then I'll get in another time and both work fine. It's acting like I slammed on the brakes. It's not ever one or the other, always both and I cannot seem to find the factor that causes or fixes it.
