    I thought the tensioner had gone on my drive belt so ordered a new one and as I was replacing it it come out under full tension.

  16. Weak seat belt tensioner anyone?

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    I notice it mostly on the drivers side front door, but I've seen it happen on the passenger side front door as well, if the belt is folded over just once, it won't take up the slack. I'm careful to try to make sure it's not folded over but even so i've almost slammed the buckle in the door twice...
