One time only. The rearmost bench seat is dismounted with six large machine screws (and one phillips head screw) but the problem is the slides that the seat is attached to. The slides are apparently installed with the rails in one piece and cannot be removed from it without violence. Once the bench seat is removed from the slides, I found the easiest and least distructive way to remove the slides is to pull up the carpet at the back end of the rail and cut off two sheetmetal stops that close off the back end of the rails. Once the channel is open, the slides can be forced off of the back end of the rail using a heavy hammer and a flat bar to get it over the rear doorr seal. The carpet tucks easily back into the molding.

We have a 1997 Mercury Villager. I don't know how different it is from ours. We cannot remove the back seat. We can remove the middle seat and slide the back seat forward. I hope this helps.

My son pulled out and then snapped back the rear passenger side seatbelt on my '99 Merc. Villager Van, and it ended up locked into place near the floor inside the mechanism used to adjust the rear bench...

is the belt wrapped around the lever to adjust the seat?
Try sliding the seat to get some slack.
He may have it in ALR mode. That is when you pull it allthe way out, and then it ratchets it's way back in until it is all the way in. Then it reverts back to pulling out and going in w/o ratcheting.
This is to lock a child seat in.
So, you need to get it in all the way somehow.

The seat belt gets stuck and makes a loud and distracting noise

The system can be operated manually by removing round cover cap on the B pillar (Just behind door). manually turn crank knob on top of motor.

There is a limit switch on the A pillar to turn off the motor for forward movement. There is a limit switch on the B pillar to shut off the motor for rearward movement.

You may need a B pillar limit switch if the belt is going all the way back but not shutting off. Unfortunately the rear limit switch is serviced with the track & motor assembly. Get a used one at Page with * is cheapest part.

You need to remove A pillar trim, B pillar lower trim, B pillar upper trim, and front door opening upper trim.

disconnect front limit switch
disconnect rear limit switch
disconnect motor electrical connector
remove 3 motor bolts
remove 2 limit switch bracket bolts
remove screw at A pillar near limit switch
remove 3 screws at track assy to roof.
pull back carpet & remove 4 screws at floor where you step into car.
remove track & motor assy.

Mercury Villager headlight assembly diagaram for removal

This is easy. Lift the lid open. Look at the back of the sealed beam and you will see a clip and an o ring. Pull the clip up and pull wires back toward the driver's seat. Unscrew the o ring and firmly pull the bulb out toward the driver again. Note the 3 tabs on the bulb seat and realign the new bulb with those tab ( 2 bottom, 1 top). Replace with #9007 them both.
