New front seat belt keeps auto locking/reverse locking

My W210 had a front passenger seat belt that had a lazy retractor. I tried to fix it to no avail so I ordered a new OEM seat belt assembly. I installed the new part and the retracting of the seat belt works fine. But the seat belt is a little "grabby". Several pulls of the belt are stopped because reverse lock keeps engaging. It's pretty annoying that it takes a few minutes to get the belt to finally give enough slack to fasten it.

Any experience with new belts? Is there a breaking in period and this thing will calm down after a while?

Try pulling slower when you extend the belt. The belt lock is supposed to kick in on any fast/sudden movement.
