I've only had to change a seat belt once, and it was not a Subaru (the belt was partially cut thru). In my vehicle (Jeep) I had to remove the rear seat, and the belt was anchored with a bolt that required a large torx socket wrench to remove. Before you get that involved, maybe you should try to expose the retractor area of the belt, spray a generous dose of WD-40 in it, try working the belt in and out, keep spraying, hopefully it will work, but I really don't know if it's jammed beyond this fix. If you have to replace it, check the local auto junk yard. They may be able to give you tips about removal. You should be able to pick one up for about half the cost of new (color might not match?). Good Luck, sorry I can't be of more help. countrycurt0

2000buick park avenue ultra radio, and power seats both do not work. Requesting fuse location. Thank you


It is fuse number 11 in the fuse center under the rear seat cushion.

To Remove the Rear Seat Cushion

1. Pull up on the front of the cushion to release the

front hooks.

2. Pull the cushion up and out toward the front of
the vehicle.
To reinstall the rear seat cushion (PLEASE READ CAUTION)
CAUTION:

A safety belt that isn't properly routed through

the seat cushion or is twisted won't provide the

protection needed in a crash. If the safety belt

hasn't been routed through the seat cushion at

all, it won't be there to work for the next

passenger. The person sitting in that position

could be badly injured. After reinstalling the seat

cushion, always check to be sure that the safety

belts are properly routed and are not twisted.

1. Buckle the center passenger position safety belt, then

route the safety belts through the proper slots in the

seat cushion. Don't let the safety belts get twisted.

2. Slide the rear of the cushion up and under the

seatback so the rear locating guides hook into the

wire loops on the back frame.

3. With the seat cushion lowered, push rearward and

then press down on the seat cushion until the spring

locks on both ends engage.

4. Check to make sure the safety belts are properly routed

and that no portion of any safety belt is trapped under
the seat. Also make sure the seat cushion is secured.

Every time I go over a big bump in road one ,two or even three rear seat belt lights come on and then start pinging/ringing and do not stop until either I switch engine off or fasten rear seat belts.


The sensors in the seat detect weight and assume there are occupants in the seats without the seat belts done up and this then triggers the warnings. If you are carrying items on the seat that bounce when you hit a bump that may trigger the alarms. Even movement in the seat unit itself when you hit a decent bump could trigger the sensors.

Just keep the rear seat belts done up and you will not have a problem with false warnings.

Reaching rear seat belt on 1997 crown victoria


Lap belt or shoulder harness? Lap belt - remove rear seat bottom by pushing in on bottom edge of the seat cushion and lifting. This will expose the lap belt and its anchor. Shoulder belt should be accessible via trunk compartment. If not then you'll have to remove the back of the rear seat to get to it.
