    Seat belts and MOT

    One of my rear seatbelts in my Kombi snags slightly on a shelf unit and retracts very slowly or needs retracted manually. Other than that it works as it should and locks etc when it has to. My question is whether or not this is an MOT fail? The unit can be modified so the belt works as it...
