Question about 2000 Mercury Mountaineer

1 Answer

Are the back seat belts the same as the front ones?

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!

SOURCE: how do I find diagram of seat belt retractor assembly mercury mariner

You never need a dealer except for warrantee
work


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
working

If the retractor fails, then you have to get a complete
new belt assy at dealers parts counter

SOURCE: Power driver seat will not adjust forward or back.

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.

SOURCE: Serpentine belt in a 1995 Mercury sable




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.

SOURCE: '93 Mercury Sable Serpentine Belt installation without using AC

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.

The rear drivers side passenger seat in my Mercedes 2004 ml350 is stuck down...how do get it to come back up. very little room to work


Not an easy task. You likely have one of 2 problems. If center seat belt is in the seat that is down, it may be locked. If so, you need to remove the seat back cover then the seat belt retractor. You can then position the seat belt retractor upright (how it sits when the seat is up) and pull the seat belt out making slack to raise the seat. This only happens if the either the stop on the seat belt is broken or the seat belt guide on the seat back is broken. If that's not the problem, you likely have a release cable that has come loose under the seat. If you look at the half that works, you can determine what you need to move on the locked seat and try to get to it with a long tin screwdriver or similar implement.

How to replace 3rd row seat drivers side seat belt?


Please bear with me, a lot of people don't know that if this occurs that you must start the vehicle and relax and pull out the seat belt with a firm and steady action but not to pull too fast or no yanking. You must start the vehicle to reset the security system for the vehicles safety belts to release and go back to ready to use mode

Air bag code 33 for a 2005 lincoln town car


2005 Towncar SRS Code 33 (3 flash + 3 flash, repeat this set for twice. then Beep 5 times pause x 5 = 25 beeps every 30min).

This means you have problem with left (Driver) side pretentioner (Seat belt retract system).
It doesn't mean physical belt or retract mechanism.It is just bomb wiring which is part of airbag system.
When airbag deploy, passenger must stay tight in seat otherwise body lean to front then slam back to seat by airbag.
if belt is loose or delay to lock, passenger's body rocks back and forth.So, system use small bomb (Fire power) to lock and retract seat belt when airbag deploy.There is small bomb and igniter in part of Seat belt retractor.
Code 33 is warning for this part on 2005 Towncar.(older model is different meaning in Ford/Lincoln, it's possibly passenger side airbag system for earlier model)
Before you work for any part of Airbag system and touch any "Yellow connector", * *Disconnect battery (negative side is good enough) and wait at least 5 min to clear all power in system**.(Airbag store back up power for few minutes to be able to deploy even in case if power disconnected)
by the way, you should move your driver seat most forwarded position before you disconnect battery to make it easy to work with seat belt.
locate driver side seat belt retractor (in center pillar between front and rear door, you may have to fight with weather strip)

Locate Yellow connector on bottom of Seat belt retractor (it's called "Pretensioner")it is located on very bottom of rear side of retractor.
only one yellow connector. (make sure your battery is disconnected)
Check its physical connection or looseness.if connection looks fine, you may have to replace whole seat belt ($180-$200 in Lincoln dealer)
You can check if pretensionor is good or bad by regular tester, but unless you know how, I won't tell (because I don't wan't you to blow out pretentionor).

Seat belt won't retrack after closing door on drivers side ,pass.side works fine


Hi and welcome to FixYa!

As a first course of action I strongly suggest that you pull the seat belt a little harder This can help the metal ball on the mechanism to break loose. If it breaks loose the seat belt will surely retract. If it doesn't help then I believe that the seat belt reached it's break point and will surely need replacement.

Hope you find this information helpful enough and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

Drivers seat belt releases spontaniouly


If your drivers seat belt is releasing spontaneously, I would suggest that you replace the seat belt buckle mechanism immediately because, if confronted with an emergency situation, someone could be endanger, like the driver of this vehicle. If you not under warranty, go to salvage yard and find your vehicle and find the seat belt buckle mechanism to replace your current one.

Seatbelt won't retract


1)move the plastic cover over the seat belt out of the way to gain access to the two mounting bolts for the seat belt mechanism. Use a 10mm wrench and a 14mm wrench and remove the two bolts holding the seat belt mechanism to the body. Use a small drill bit or small screwdriver and make one hole in the plastic cover on each side of the seat belt mechanism (the covers say "do not remove plastic cover". Spray lots of wd40 in each hole. Then exercise the seat belt. When the mechanism allows the belt to be retracted, retract the belt all the way out and exercise the seat belt. Reinstall mechanism with both mounting screws in original position and put plastic cover back in place. Good luck. New seat belt costs $100.00 from dealer and are hard to find working in junk yards. I have fixed several of them this way.

1999 Dodge 2500 passenger side seat belt wont release


so after completely tearing the seat apart I found 2 wires going up to the seat belt mechanism from under the seat, these wires got caught in the seat mechanism underneath and were shredded. There must be a small solenoid inside the seat belt mechanism because I could hear it click after I repaired the wires(this circuit is live even with the ignition off) Im not sure how it all works but this solved my problem.
