Question about Ford Escort

1 Answer

1995 ford escort. Shoulder seat belt doesn't lock when when you pull on it. So it feels like if you were to get in an accident it wouldn't grab and hold you in.

Seat belt problem not locking


they have a mechanism called a seat belt cam which is gravity activted with force and usually at 15mph and with sudden braking the cams should lock. If u feel that they have to much play and seem like they dont lock properly id suggest changing both belt assemblies because the cams do wear or get stuck and fail like any other moving part and it is a saftey issue for u so better safe than getn injured with a faulty belt.

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.

The seatbelt is automatic 1995 ford escort stopped working could it be a motor issue or broken belt pully is easly fixed


The automatic retracting shoulder strap track is available only as a complete assembly with the motor and switches. The last time I got one of these I went through the dealer. There is also an outfit that specializes in obsolete and hard to find Ford parts. here is their web address:

How are the middle row safety belts supposed to function properly? my used van is showing signs of character.


It depends on your seating. My Windstar has bucket seats, and the very back is a bench type 3 seater. The middle row normally has 2 shoulder/lap belts. It really depends on the perks that the original owner opted for upon purchase. For instance my driver seat has a button on the right side to adjust the lumbar area of the seat.
Checking CarFAX will let you know if the vehicle has ever been in a major accident. Most people do not realize that after an accident, seat belts and their anchors should be replaced.

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

I have a 1997 Ford Escort. The rear seat belt is stuck


make sure that the rear seats are properly locked into rear catches as this can stop your seatbels from working if ok then sounds like your seatbelt is faulty req new seatbelt.

Problem with 1994 Escort Seat belts


Just bought a 95 escort same problem on passenger side. Mine was the door latch, it's covered with a rubber boot to make contact when shut. If the boot is wore out it makes contact all of the time causing it to stay in the shut door position. Being handy I cut a piece of plastic from a fast food place and fit it in between to break the contact when up. Belt moves as it should now.
