Question about 1999 Mercury Sable
Drivers door will sometimes latch when closed and at other times it wont. Tried hard and soft closes with no difference in result. when it does latch it seems to hold just fine...just that it may take 20-30 tries to get it to hold. Does the latch need replacing or would a little lubrication such as WD40 work?
I would try lube first. Cold weather can cause parts to get stuck.
Normally a door latch will outlast the car, but it could be wearing out.

SOURCE: seat belt won't retrack after
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!
