    2017 S6 auto seat belt tensioner

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    When I first got my car new about a year ago, the drivers seat belt would pull noticeably at first acceleration from stop. I would say that it pulled maybe an inch or more. Over time, the belt auto tensioner seems to have gotten more and more feeble to the point bow where it is barely noticeable. Both front seats settings show the auto tension is ON.

    Is this a feature that learns the driver over time and pulls less. For people with cars more that 1 years old does theirs still pull back noticeably.

    Had my 1 year audi care done yesterday and dealer says, no error codes, so it is operating correctly. It has definitely decreased the amount of pull over the last year. I cant see how it is normal, unless it is a learned feature that changes over time, on purpose.

    This is not normal behaviour.

    I had the same issue on my driver belt, no codes, and no pretensioning of the belt, which is feature of Audi Protect.

    My belt assembly was replaced under warranty.

    FWIW I believe the belt tension differs based on drive select setting. So "comfort" is looser than "dynamic", but I could be wrong...just something to check.
    Your "individual" settings should have a mode for the belt tensioner to make it easier to isolate that one difference without the distraction of changes to engine/trans/suspension etc.

    Thanks guys. I will check settings mentioned. Also, i will check driver versus passenger seat. Both should be the same. But, it sounds like the tensioner mechanism is toast and will need to be replaced.
