Question about 2000 Mercury Mountaineer
My driver's side seat belt is officially broken...says the mechanic. So, my friend suggested I use the back one. Are the housings the same? I haven't taken the trim off yet to determine the answer so I thought I'd try here, first. New seat belt assembly is $279.00!!!!! What a JOKE! So, I need a quick, affordable fix so I can travel safely!!!!!! Thanks for any info!

You never need a dealer except for warrantee
You do understand that any repair shop performs
the same services & better in most cases
You have to wrestle the buckle out where it should
be & then snap the belt to get the retractor ratchet
If the retractor fails, then you have to get a complete
new belt assy at dealers parts counter

My intuition tells me that the 6 way power seat track forward / reverse motor is bad. Sometimes you can replace just the one motor but most often a whole new power seat track is the only way to repair. It is not too bad to replace but the seat will have to be removed from the car and placed upside down to access the track assy. There are 2 bolts in the front of the seat and 2 bolts in the back of the seat that hold it down to the floorboard. Once it is loose you can rock the seat backwards to access and unplug the electrical connectors.

I have the same car and last night my belt slipped off. The top small pulley backed it's self out. The problem is in most cars the pulleys are reverse threaded so this wont happen, in ours not so much. The pully spins loose with the turn of the belt so it has to be tightened way down. IT's a pain. Here is a diagram I found and You need a 15mm wrench, which doesn't just come in most sets. Good Luck
The book says "Using a 15 mm socket or wrench on bolt attaching drive belt tensioner pulley, rotate drive belt tensioner clockwise. Make sure spring keeper engages into slot." I would put a socket on the 15 mm pulley bolt and a long handle for leverage. Thats one tight spring.

You need to have an automotive technitian install a new belt because there is a certain path the belt must follow before it will go on, plus the belt must go around the A/c as it is part of the path. You just don't have to use the A/C.
Tell the tech that the belt broke so that he can look for a reason as to why the belt broke.
