Driver shoulder seat belt strap hookup is stuck and won't move.
We just bought this car from a friend and it has been working fine. Yesterday I came out of the store and was going to get into the car when I opened the car door, the motor where the belt hooks into started making a loud and constant noise--like the motor was trying to work. I did not even have the key in the ignition, but just opening the door it made the noise. I had to drive all the way home with the loud motor noise at the back of my head. My husband disconnected the seat belt motor, but does that mean that if I got into an accident the seat belt, even though across, me would not hold me?

Hondas and other cars have their seat belts guaranteed for life. Call your local Nissan repair shop and see if this is so. If so, they shouldn't charge you a dime. I bought a very old used Honda once, the seat belt broke, and I got a brand new one installed for nothing.

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.
you probably need to be mechanically inclined to fix this problem. When the shoulder strap stopped working on mine the switch that is operated by the door latch had to be serviced. ie: the door will have to be taken apart to access the switch.
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.
