    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?

    Welcome to this forum! I've moved your thread into the Ranger section. You have to replace the seat belt assembly.

    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.
