Question about 2005 Ford Escape

1 Answer

The button that hold the seat belt clasp when not in use has popped off the seat belt. It does not interfere with the safety or operation of the seat belt. It is just an annoyance to have to reach down to retrieve it when trying to put it on. My Ford dealer tells me there is no replacement button and that the seat belt would have to be replaced. Do you know a source for a new button to pop on to the strap?

How to remove a back seat from 02 toyota avensis


Hi, peel the cover from around the seat frame so that the shoulder strap hold the cover on to the seat.

Extend the set belts to their maximum length and recline the seat as far as possible.

Looking at the seat from the front, put your hand in the gap between the reat of the seat (bit that reclines) and the fromt of the fixed base (by the red dome and the instructions).

On the bit of the seat that reclines there is a 'door' that opens to reveal a metal clasp that the ends of the shoulder straps fix to at the top and the ****** belt at the bottom.

Unhook the looks from the shoulder straps from the metal clasp.

Pull the shoulder straps through the back of the seat upright. You can now pull them through the cover which is free for you to wash.


Thank you.

Seat belt will not latch and hold


the reciever mechanism is probably just a bit dry and sticky.
all you should need to cure this is a tin of spray lubricant (WD40 or simillar).
take the seat belt reciever.
spray a good dose of lubricant into the slot you put the buckle into. press the release button 10-15 times. insert and remove the buckle as normal about 10 times, pressing the release button.

spray again with lubricant and repeat above steps. it is a good idea to do all of the seat belts in the car as the others may need lubricating as well.

if it still is not operating properly, then i would recommend replacing the unit.
they are not servicable and they are a key safety device in your car.

Drivers side seat belt will not latch or even go all the way in to latch due to the latch mechanism staying closed. Is there a fix for it or does it just need to be replaced?


You really should just go to a salvage yard and purchase another latching mechanism, for safety reasons prying and shoving a screwdriver into the latch can be a temp fix that could interfere with safety later on down the road when you really need your safety belt...

How do we fix front passenger side seat belt retractor on 1999 Ford Taurus? It will not pull out....


you may have to remove the bolt that holds the buckle to the floor. Try to push the belt into the retractor and see if it frees up.

I assume you are saying it is in the locked mode. It has an automatic lock mode for holding a child seat. When the belt is pulled all the way out, it goes into locking mode. You will hear it ratchet when the belt starts going back in.



Section 01-20A: Restraints, Active 1999 Taurus, Sable Workshop Manual
DESCRIPTION AND OPERATION Safety Belt, Lap/Shoulder The dual locking mode retractor on the shoulder belt portion of the combination lap/shoulder safety belt for the front seat passenger and rear seat outboard passengers operates in two ways:
  1. In the vehicle sensitive (emergency locking) mode, the shoulder belt retractor will allow the occupant freedom of movement, locking tight only on hard braking, hard cornering or impacts of approximately 8 km/h (5 mph) or more. The front and rear outboard seat belt retractors can also be made to lock by pulling/jerking on the belt.
  1. In the automatic locking mode, the shoulder belt retractor will be automatically locked and remain locked when the combination lap/shoulder safety belt is buckled and does not allow the occupant freedom of movement. This mode provides tight lap/shoulder belt fit on the occupant and on a child safety seat or infant carrier installation restraint.
  1. When the combination lap/shoulder belt is unbuckled and allowed to retract completely, the retractor will switch to the vehicle sensitive (emergency) locking mode.
sxh~us~en~file=ani_caut.gif~gen~ref.gif WARNING: REAR-FACING INFANT SEATS SHOULD NEVER BE PLACED IN THE FRONT SEATS.
The automatic locking mode must be used when installing a child safety seat on the front passenger seat and rear outboard seats where dual locking retractors are provided

What do i do?


there is a cable that the auto-seatbelt pulls and pushes from...after a while the cable gets worked into the groove and gets itself jammed and then burning up the motor that operates it. Some of the older Ford Escorts have the same problem. i haven't seen a Colt Vista's door but on the Escort i saw the slot in which the cable moved the seat-belt from the top after i removed the plastic cover. I immediately saw where it was jammed..shoved it in with a screw driver. then i removed the cover where the motor was (near the floor behind the driver's seat) and i manually cranked it to the closed position. The seat-belt was capable of being undone like a normal seat belt at the top. so i had to do that and clasp the bottom lap belt by hand for the lifetime of that car. i could have made it operational so it can jam up again but just kept it sationary to prevent that. At least i wouldn't get a ticket for no seatbelt. hope this helps.

Seat belt will not buckle up


Spray WD-40 into the clasp side. If it doesn't fix it replace it. You can't trust it.

The seat belt clasp is non-functional. how do i repair it?


Usually they are not reparable. More than likely a spring has broken. But on more than one occasion I have actually found some denomination coin in the 'buckle'. And once removed, it operated okay. If you go to replace it, it is described as a buckle.
