I have a 1998 single cab ranger and my driver's side seat belt won't got back up, or if it does you have to kinda feed it.

Anybody have any suggestions on what I can do?

I love Ford seat belts! They all do this after a while. Deal with it, or replace the belt. I don't know of any way to rewind them.

I had this in my '99 too. I just learned to deal w/ it. I would constantly get the belt stuck in the door as I was quickly getting out. My '03 does it too, but not nearly as bad.. yet! I wonder if you can just disassemble the mechanism and give the spring another couple of turns?!
