1994 olds 98 rear seat belt (behind driver seat) is stuck

Help! College daughter's 1994 olds 98 rear seat belt (behind driver seat) is stuck in a re-tracked postion. How do we get it out? I assume it may be twisted in there, but we can't get to it to find out. The top or shoulder part of the belt moves normally, the bottom part coming up from the side is what is stuck...
Do we need to pull the back seat? How do we do that?

Nope typically, you need to extract the seat belt roller mechanism. Carefully you need to open the covers, do not bust any catches, get a strong light. Where you need to wind up looks like a ratchet. Along this ratchet is a catch that needs to be manually released.

This release is not always very easy, often the belt being tight restricts surgical access.

If you even think that you may have damaged or tweeked something during this process, replace the whole belt. It is your life that depends on it.

I have never had to replace a seat belt, so it is not too fragile, just be carful.

If brute force doesn't unstick it remove the back seat and pull the cover off of the reel. The problem should be apparent. You can turn the reel with a large screwdriver if need be.
If the belt is damaged find another one at your local recycler, the side reel is behind a plastic panel that is easily removed, the assemblies are held in by big bolts.

My 1994 ford escort seat belt is stuck in the postion by the windshield. I have tryed turning the hex nut behind the drivers side, no luck there. I can here the moter runing and trying to pull the belt to...


I'm no expert by any means but I also have a 94 Ford Escort Wagon, its pretty sweet :) I had this problem a year ago and found out there is a rubber band or track that was defective. I couldn't afford to change out the motor so I helped the moving mount back up the track when the motor was turning. Then I disconnected the power to the seatbelt motor unit on the bottom of the B post right behing the driver's seat. Now, you have to manually attach both seat belts all the time but it saved me spending $100 on the wagon and still retaining all the safety it has to offer. Hope this helped, if only you can get the mount back up the track one more time you'll be good! Oh yeah, also, you won't have power that turn's on your dome light anymore when you open your door. I'm going to work on that though and will let you know if I can bypass it to still give it power.

1993 mercury villager- drivers side seatbelt is stuck.


You have a limit switch at each end of the seat belt track. One could be bad. Is belt stuck forward or at the back? It also has a module to control it.
It operates like a garage door opener. If you have to replace track, it's a big job. Have to take a lot of trim off the van. Best thing to do is get it in the rear position and just use the buckle. Get used part at car-part.com.
page with * is lowest pice. Or, go to pick n pull salvage yard and pull it yourself and learn how it comes out.

1994 Saturn Auto seat belts stopped working


It looks like there is a 20A fuse labeled "rest" that powers and control module.

There seems to be a common problem with the passive restrain module located under the center console that gets damaged if someone spills water or soda on the consel.

Here is a thread about the module:
