    Last night I posted about having to slam the doors to close, but now I see why, the door seems to hit the seatbelt engage button in the door jamb and bounces alittle unless I push in solidly on the handle. Any cure for this? And no, I'm not taking out my belts /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    All that button does is engage the mechanism in the seat belt retractor that lets the belt get slack in it when the door is closed. When you open the door, it releases, so the belt can retract. I took a pair of side cutters to that button on my '77 and removed it. /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif That way the belt stayed more snug all the time. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Remove and clean the door latch mechanism, loosen the striker and move it out on the door post approx 1/8-1/4".
    I have an 88 set up the same as yours, Do this and it will help. You still have to slam the door a little harder, it's a heavy unit. Were not driving Cadillacs /forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif
