Default Seat belt clip on 93 LE?

I've had to move driver's seat due to adding a lumbar support on the seat
and now the seat belt chafes my neck. It was always somewhat uncomfortable
in the winter wearing a heavy jacket and will be even more so now. I've
always had the lever on the door frame in its farthest down position (up
makes it worse). Is their some kind of clip sold to prevent the belt from
retracting with such normal force. The belt still does it's lockup thing
when I have it held a bit out then yank on it suddenly so it shouldn't be a
safety issue. I can live with having to push the belt into the car when I
exit.

Thanks,
Marc

I'm sure you've probably already tried this, but have you moved the
rear of the seat cushion all the way "up" so it touches the seat back,
and moved the seat back all the way tilted "forward"? (without adding
a lumbar support)
I find the stock seat gives pretty good support that way, plus raising
the seat cushion fully may get the belt off your neck and on to your
shoulder where it should be.

I've always had the entire seat all the way up as I'm about 6 feet tall and
feel that I need it. I can see why letting it down would pull the belt in
towards my neck.

I'd also had been keeping the front of the seat tilted up to support my
thighs. My doctor told me to make the seat as flat as possible and to get
the lumbar support. Raising the rear of the seat gets it closer to flat
which is what I think you're saying too. I then tried tilting the entire
seat back upright and even moving the entire seat backwards to try to
compromise. I feel like I'm leaning over the top of the wheel.

I'll go out again tomorrow and run through the steps you recommend but I
just happened to end up trying that combination but not in precisely the
same order.

Its funny that in the past I always loved my seats but I guess when you hurt
your back everything changes. The lumbar support I bought from the Relax the
Back store helps somewhat but not entirely. I still would like to find
something like a clip to ease off the retracting of the belt.

I have some additional ideas that may be helpful if you'd like to respond by e-mail
