      The driver's side seat belt of my 2000 Ranger does not retract completely and I usually close the door on it. This is annoying especially when I have to open the door to adjust the belt. Is there any way to adjust the belt tension so the slack is taken out when I remove the belt to get out of the truck?

      Oh yeah, I've got the same problem with my '00 Ranger. They can send a man to the moon, but they can't figure out a way to keep seat belts tight through their lifespan.

      Although I've never had one apart, the only remedy that I can see is to take the retract mechanism apart and put a couple of extra wraps of the belt on the take-up spool.
