Very common problem. Unfortunately I haven't been able to fix it. So sympathy and no solution from me I'm afraid.

Ford deny there's even a problem with my car :-(

Thanks for the reply Gary, nice to know it's not just my car.

Just I thought I would share my recent experience. After viewing a Youtube video to make the seat belt retract quicker if it seems to be sticking, I sprayed some polish on the seat belt loop housing on the pillar and my noise seems to have gone :biggrin: not sure if this a temporary situation but I'll keep everyone informed.

I also had this problem and ended up removing the trim to get to the bottom of it. It happens because the seatbelts top mount has a bit of flex in it to allow the seatbelt to extend and retract more easily. I found putting foam tape in place to prevent metal on metal contact stopped the noise and still let the mount move. Never had a problem since and that was almost a year ago.
