97 Mercury Mountaineer driver side door won't open. Outside handle flops around; inside handle won't open door

Try a slim jim first, down the side of the window. Or AAA or locksmith. If no luck, remove the seat first. Find the screws and bolts around the door handle and arm rest. Most Ford's have screws around the outer side of the panel. I don't believe your's does. The panel lifts or pops off. Once the panel is off, you can reach down and open the door. Just a note. I have done some to where the panel came out in pieces.

The front passenger seatbelt is twisted and won' t retract on my 2004 Sienna minivan. How can I fix it myself?

OK - So I have a 2004 Sienna and the drivers seat had a twisted seat belt. To make matters worse it was fully extended and I could not straighten it. Here are the steps I took to get it corrected.

I took off the handle to the sliding door. There are 2 small panels on the handle that can gently be removed with a flat head screwdriver. Once exposed you will see 2 torx bolts. If you have that tool, great. If not you can use a small flat head to unscrew the bolts. This removes the handle

Next use your flat head screwdriver to 'pop' off the bottom center section of plastic (the piece that has the auto door button). The side closest to the sliding door will have a plastic 'snap' that will come out and that will allow enough room to get to the other plastic snap...these come out easily but be careful they don't drop to the bottom. Once unsnapped you will have access to the top plastic center section (where the seat belt is located)

There is another plastic 'snap' close to the sliding door. Unfastening this side will allow enough space for you to access the drivers side and use a 10mm socket to remove the bolt holding that in place. Once out I was able to get both hands on the seat belt & it was easily corrected.

I adjusted the slide to its highest position since that is the way the passenger side is and we have never had an issue with that side.

Put all pieces back in reverse order & you are done. Took about 15 minutes.

Hope this helps.

Belt does not retrack

without taking the housing apart......the return spring is more then likely damaged/pinched, or the belt got twisted inside the housing

My passenger seat belt won't work.

I believe the rear seat needs to be removed to access the fasteners for that panel. It is probably a big waste of time trying to repair that belt roller, try for a replacement at a junkyard.

Passenger side seat belt won't pull out

It could have twisted on recoil and is now stuck. You'd have to remove the interior panel to view that.

On the really bad side, the seat belt pretensioner could have failed or fired and locked the belt in place. If that's the case, I'd have a mechanic replace it since you can trigger an air bag deployment replacing it yourself.
