Sticky plastic on b pillar?

My 1993 325is with 106,000 kilometres, always garage kept since new has developed an interesting bit of "sticky" On the inside of the "B" pillar where the shoulder belt attaches the plastic has become very sticky, the passenger's seatbelt actually hangs up on it a bit. I suppose the car is trying to recycle itself.....Has anybody experienced this and is there an easy solution besides trying to replace? I have no idea what the part is actually called.

Have you used any kind of cleaner or protectant on it? That's typical of plastic that's had Armor All used on it for years.

NO Armour All

Thanks for the reply, no Armour All or anything other than a cloth with warm water for cleaning. I have had the car for 15 years and purchased off the original owner, an 85 year old doctor. No, it's something in the plastic. Garage stored in mild climate...
