Make sure that nothing is stuck inside the belt retracter,if not then i would replace it,you cant open it up or it might not work properly in a crash, try pulling it lightly a few times to see if it frees up.

    What worked for me (after trying to rip the thing out) was to pull on it VERY slowly.

Power seat

Most Fordicon1.png products are designed so the seat belt latch by the center console moves with the seat. The bottom of the latch rides on the seat rail, and with time sometimes it builds up a little play on the rail. As the seat moves forward or back, the seat belt guide often tilts forward or back, just a bit, on the rail, and gets stuck. So you can move forward or back just a bit, but then it jams and you can hear the motor, but can go no further.

The long term fix is to remove the seat, disassemble the seat belt guide and rail, and usually replace some parts.

But the short term solution is often to simply hold on to the seat belt latch and rock it forward and away from the seat as you try to go forward or back. Or, sometimes it works besticon1.png to rock it backwards and away from the seat as you try to move forward or back. It all depends on which way it is binding.

There's no guarantee that it won't jam again if you move it all the way back or forward, but once you find the right position to hold the seat latch in while moving the seat, you should be able to re-adjust it where you need it to be.

Seat won't go up and down on my 1998 mustang

You probably have a dirty switch or a bad connection to the electric motor.Follow the wires to the motor under the seat, unplug them and then plug them back up a few times.If this doesn't fix the problem,you need to replace the switch or the motor.
