problem #1

Dec 042007

Escape 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • miles
Seat belt retractors don't work on both side[weak [return][springs causing doors not to shut when exiting vehicle metal connector blocks and damages door lock mechanism and punching large holes in weather strips I've replaced twice on each side. A recall on the seat belts returns should be issued. This problem chews up the seat belt connection metal and door lock mechanism which will eventually stop working after repeated closures. Some one could then fall out of there car.
