There is a motor with teeth that engages a plastic ribbin that runs the entire length of the track.  The teeth are worn and dont engage the ribbon anymore.  In the cold the materials contract so it's less  more likely to fail.  I would wait until it closes, then unplug the motor so it stays closed.  Your passengers can then slip it over them when they get in.  Otherwise you are looking at a big exopense in parts and labor. I did fix this in a Ford Tempo by putting a C clamp on the motor to squeeze the gears together.

Retractable Seatbelt stuck in one position. Doesn't retract once engine started. Any advice?


Common problem with nissan, the retractor mechanism for the dseatbelt has burned out. Its located at the bottom of the door pillar next to your seat. Remove srews or pop cover off and youll see it on the bottom of door pillar. You can get one from your local salvege yard for around 10 to 25 dollars

I have a 1993 Mercury Topaz that I just bought, and the drivers side seat will not move forward, it will go in all other directions, but won't move forward...any suggestions?


There are 3 electric motors on the seat. One is forward and back, one is front up and down, and one is rear up and down. The switch changes the polarity back and forth to achieve the proper movement. I think the wire color for the forward and back motor is yellow with a white tracer and red with a white tracer. so if the switch gives the motor positive voltage to the yellow with a white tracer and grounds the red with a white tracer the seat moves forward. If the switch gives the red with a white tracer positive and the yellow with a white tracer ground the seat moves back. (or the other way around). So we can safely say it is in the switch.
Good luck and God Bless

1993 mercury villager- drivers side seatbelt is stuck.


You have a limit switch at each end of the seat belt track. One could be bad. Is belt stuck forward or at the back? It also has a module to control it.
It operates like a garage door opener. If you have to replace track, it's a big job. Have to take a lot of trim off the van. Best thing to do is get it in the rear position and just use the buckle. Get used part at car-part.com.
page with * is lowest pice. Or, go to pick n pull salvage yard and pull it yourself and learn how it comes out.

The seat belt gets stuck and makes a loud and distracting noise


The system can be operated manually by removing round cover cap on the B pillar (Just behind door). manually turn crank knob on top of motor.

There is a limit switch on the A pillar to turn off the motor for forward movement. There is a limit switch on the B pillar to shut off the motor for rearward movement.

You may need a B pillar limit switch if the belt is going all the way back but not shutting off. Unfortunately the rear limit switch is serviced with the track & motor assembly. Get a used one at car-part.com. Page with * is cheapest part.


You need to remove A pillar trim, B pillar lower trim, B pillar upper trim, and front door opening upper trim.

disconnect front limit switch
disconnect rear limit switch
disconnect motor electrical connector
remove 3 motor bolts
remove 2 limit switch bracket bolts
remove screw at A pillar near limit switch
remove 3 screws at track assy to roof.
pull back carpet & remove 4 screws at floor where you step into car.
remove track & motor assy.
