Many manufacturers suggest that seat belts be replaced after a certain time, and many belts do go faulty. They do cost a bit of cash, but you have to weigh up cost against your life. Replace a faulty belt, the sooner the better.

I have a 2005 mercury montaineer. The drivers seat which is a power seat, will not go back all the way. It makes it half way and then nothing. Please help!!!


Most Ford 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 best 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.

The drivers seat belt will not latch, and the release button seems broke. What can I do?


You can go to the junk yard, or the dealer and get a replacement latch. The latch should be attached either to another piece of seat belt, or its a cord that is bolted to either the seat or the floor. Should be torx or star bit that removes it, its pretty simple, but worst case scenario you may have to remove the seat to access it. Seats are usually only 4 bolts and a wiring harness that you can unplug. I don't take chances with seat belts, so you may want to ask the dealer. Parts store may sell them, but I'm not sure.
