Unhappy Wear on drivers seat belt

My drivers seat belt is showing signs of wear, it looks like it's catching inside the mechanism so the belt has worn, it passed the MOT this year but Ford said it may not next year if it gets any worse, they quoted me over 320 +VAT to replace it. Do any members know of anywhere cheaper? I live in London.

you could try this company in Stanmore (north london, between edgware and harrow)
never used them myself, but they have been around a long time.

I phoned this company and explained about the seat belt attached to the seat and there being no post between front and rear seats, he knew exactly the car I was talking about, checked it out on his computer and quoted from 150 - 180 + VAT max, 2/3 hours work. Big saving on Fords! Many thanks.

Be careful with what constitutes an MOT failure when it comes to wear. The rules for passenger cars are far less stringent than HGVs or Buses for example. If it just a bit frayed, you can "carefully" burn the edges or even iron them.

1.6 tdci, remapped to 120 bhp, Panther Black Titanium with rear view camera, nav pac and front sensors. Always willing to stop & help in any situation I can. Karma is a beautiful thing.
