Question about Ford F-250

1 Answer

The seatbelts on both my '96 Accord and my '03 F250 do not retract all the way. When exiting the vehicle, I have to feed the belt back into the holder. It's quite annoying, and I can't help but wonder if it would hold in an accident.

First off to set your mind at ease, yes they will hold you in case of an accident.The annoying part(where you have to feed it into the retainer) is caused by a return spring that fails on a lot of retainers.This is more of an annoyance and not a safety issue.These assemblies can be purchased for around $68 a piece.I hope I could help.Rate me accordingly, Thanks....

Lock and unlock Ford Seatbelts when using a baby car seat


When putting a car seat into any Ford vehicle you can ensure that your child is securely fastened by simply pulling the seatbelt all the way out to it's limit of travel. Then allow the seat belt to retract automatically to a snug fit over the car seat hooks. You will notice as it retracts that it makes a clicking sound. This ratcheting action when manually activated this way will lock the seat belt firmly into the baby's safety seat providing asecure restraint. It's so easy to do and it could save a childs life!

My automatic seatbelt doesnt work anymore. i have a 1990 accord lx 5-speed and it used to get stuck have way and know it wont recline at all. is it a bad fuse or the computer? i disconnected the seatbelt...


If both passengers and drivers side retractable belts have stopped moving, then it's likely the controller that's located under the passengers seat has gone bad. If only one side has stopped retracting and moving then that side motor has probably gone bad.

My seatbelts feed out properly and retract


There is a ball inside that when you brake moves and locks the seat belt. Your best bet is to drive and see if it locks when you brake hard. If not replace it. Some cars wont lock when you pull on them only when inertia takes over do they lock.

1993 Honda Accord Emergency Brake + Rear seatbelt not retracting


The e-brake probably has an adjustment nut either under the brake when you have it pulled up or simply removing a small plastic plate at the back of the console as seen from the rear seat.
You wil probably need about a 12mm deep socked to adjust it. If the nut is bottomed out you will need to adjust if at the wheels.

As far as the seatbelt, you will need to access the reel assembly and determine if the belt is in a bind or the internal spring in the reel is broken. You should be able to tell what the problem is when you get to the reel.

Rear passenger side seat belt is stuck, and I can't work out how to get to the mechanism without damaging the seat.


If it is a 850 sedan like mine then you'll have to remove the speaker covers and then pull up the rear deck cover, then you can get to the mechanism.
