Perhaps typical of Porsche GB, deny all in the first place. Do as Matt suggested and look where the belt enters the pillar. Slowly unwind the belt and then retract slowly to feel any obstruction to free movement. Hope it gets sorted to your satisfaction better than the roof episode.

Is there maybe something sharp where it goes into the pillar. Might explain it. If so you could trump them with such proof
Thanks for the replies and suggestions but this is isolated in an area about 10 cms or so, that happens to be at the point the seat belt sits on my chest..
Also if there was a catch somewhere it would be along more of the belt, as the belt moves in and out 2 feet plus when you put it on or retract it, thus I dont believe it is that.
I think it’s simply been rubbing against my chest…and I dont wear anything other than ‘smart/cas’ so the belt must have an allergy to a smartly dressed man!
On a plus point at least I’m not getting ‘they all do that sir’ like with the roof issue..
I think they must think I have abused it somehow.
Like I said, the email response I gave is a good one, but I dont think it would be wise to post it as yet…as an update I have had a ‘holding’ email from the Aftersales Manager who was passed my response by the girl at the OPC who had been dealing….we will see how it pans out but I am not letting this one go…they can hardly expect me to pay £1651 for a 2 year warranty extension if they wont cover this..that is due to them in early September so they have 5 weeks.
Another interesting point is that it’s in for its first MOT at the same time, I’ll bet its a possible MOT failure too.
