1995 Ford Escort Seat Belt Latch Broken

The latch to my front seat belt (the ones that move back and forth when you close and open the doors) is broken. The seat belt itself is still intact, but I'm having a very hard time finding parts to fix it. What do I need? A new track, a new motor, a new track and motor? It still moves back and forth, but the piece that latches to the seat belt buckle was chewed off by my dog...

    I've tried that already, but I'm not sure which seat belt part I'm supposed to be looking for... Does that piece come with the motor? The track?

    It is a complete assembly.

    When you search for it, there are three options: seat belt, seat belt motor, or seat belt track...

Drivers door is locked. (Manual locks) Will not unlock or open with either the key or by pulling up on the lock lever inside the car.


You probably jarred the locking linkage loose, not fun getting the door panel off to repair it. You could try squirting some down between the panel towards the locking mechanism to see it will free up.

Power seat


Most Fordicon1.png products are designed so the seat belt latch by the center console moves with the seat. The bottom of the latch rides on the seat rail, and with time sometimes it builds up a little play on the rail. As the seat moves forward or back, the seat belt guide often tilts forward or back, just a bit, on the rail, and gets stuck. So you can move forward or back just a bit, but then it jams and you can hear the motor, but can go no further.

The long term fix is to remove the seat, disassemble the seat belt guide and rail, and usually replace some parts.

But the short term solution is often to simply hold on to the seat belt latch and rock it forward and away from the seat as you try to go forward or back. Or, sometimes it works besticon1.png to rock it backwards and away from the seat as you try to move forward or back. It all depends on which way it is binding.

There's no guarantee that it won't jam again if you move it all the way back or forward, but once you find the right position to hold the seat latch in while moving the seat, you should be able to re-adjust it where you need it to be.

Seat belt does not move when i opn the door


If only one seat belt does not move when you open door then check the pink wire in the rubber boot passing from the door panel to the cabin around the door hinge, however if it is both seat belts that don't move when their respective doors are opened, the problem is in a little box located right under the hand brake lever, behind the shift lever, of course you have to remove some of the decor to get to it.

Problem with 1994 Escort Seat belts


Just bought a 95 escort same problem on passenger side. Mine was the door latch, it's covered with a rubber boot to make contact when shut. If the boot is wore out it makes contact all of the time causing it to stay in the shut door position. Being handy I cut a piece of plastic from a fast food place and fit it in between to break the contact when up. Belt moves as it should now.
