Default Lubrication of automatic seatbelts

Does anyone have the proper method to do this or what type of grease to use? Would lithium grease work?

Lithium Grease will work just fine. Once you apply it, cycle the belt in the track a few times.

Not to rain on your parade, but if the motorized belts are already not functional, odds are just lubricating them won't be enough to get them working again. (But don't let that keep you from trying anyway...you might luck out)

Well in my case the seat belts are functional, they just run slow when its cold out. I hadn't been to the dealer in a while, and I noticed some of the visible portion of the track was worn away, looked almost copper underneath. So I took some lithium grease and a small nail and just applied it to the track. This seemed to help, but it hasn't been below zero yet.
I was wasn't sure if I needed to try and get inside the track, which I don't know how to do other and attempting to work it in the crack at one end and hope the cycleing of the belt will apply it internally.

The "copper" you are seeing may very well be anti-seize compound put there as a track lube by some previous owner. That stuff WILL thicken when it gets cold. You may want to use a bunched up washcloth and a GLOVED HAND (the track edges can be SHARP) to wipe clean the tracks and then relube with white lithium grease. "Spray cable and chain lube" (Wal-Mart or any autoparts store) likewise will work very well and is easy to apply.
