Yikes!!! Not a good idea at all! These are generally assembled at the factory and not intended to be repaired. Too many potiential problems with service and definitely not something you want to fail. Personally, I'd either find a replacement at a JY or buy a new one. Oil collects dust and dirt which would only serve to gum things up worse over time, not to mention many other possible problems.

Further to my last post, I've found that sometimes they won't retract because the webbing has become less flexible (food/drink spillage). Once in a while you can improve performance by cleaning the webbing. You would just want to make sure you use something safe for seat belt webbing. No guarantees cause it'* probably the retractor spring, but may be worth a try.

The seatbelt webbing is the actual seatbelt "fabric"
