Question about 1998 Ford Explorer

2 Answers

My seat belt connector in the back (Female) needs to be replaced, but I can't find out how to take it out. I don't see any bolts or screws on the inside to unfassen it. I know there must be a way. It's in a 1996 ford explorer. The issue is with the double connector (female) between the rear seat.

I think the nut holding the seat is what holds it down.

How do I tell if my seat belt is attached by a tube nut or a bolt? Air bags are currently disengaged because I need to replace the female portion of the driver buckle!

Most are secured to the vehicle using a TORX bolt screwed into the body. There may be a cover on the assembly that has to be removed to see this bolt. I believe the TORX socket size is T-55.

Remove female seat belt recepticle

Due to Federal Safety regulations, the normal way for this belt to be secured to the car is by a big bolt which is fastened to the body of the car with a nut that cannot be removed. Often, the anchoring bolt is underneath the carpet, and may require quite a bit of the interior of the car on that side to be removed to gain access.
If you have a junk yard/salvage yard nearby, go there and find out what to do, because cars there should have some seats removed.
Be blessed.

Replace seat belt

Pull back the covers at the base of the belts and you will see a large female head star drive bolt, that is all that attaches the belt to the car body. The size of the bolt is a T45.

My 2000 ford focus air bags deploy. I went to a junker and I took the seat belts out but my shop guy said I need the seat belt pre-tensioner. The problem I have now is that I don't know where can I find...

The pre-tensioner is attached to the female end where the seat belt buckles in. It is all one part and is bolted to the seat. You will see a little cylinder at the bottom, this is the charge and is basically a little explosive. Don't be scared though the assembly is safe to handle. A good precaution though is to undo and remove the negative cable on the battery before pulling it out. You most likely will have to unbolt the whole seat then undo the wiring connector. Unbolt it and bring it in to the shop. Pre-tensioners are only located on the front 2 seats so don't waste your time trying to find one in the back. Picture #5 in the bottom left corner is the pre tensioner

Replace rear seat belt in 1993 Toyota Corolla

OK. On the front edge of the seat bottom cushion, pull up hard, both sides. This will dislodge the 2 clamps that holds the seat cushion to the floor. Pull the seat cushion out & set it aside. You will now see the female latches bolted to the area where the rear of the seat cushion meets the rear seat back bottom. Remove the bolts (14 mm I think).
