1997 ford f-150 Truck Where seat Belt In The Front/passenger Vehicle Will Not Clasp Any More. There Is No Debree In The Mechanisms That Would Prohibit The seat Belt From Clasping Together. Have Rec’d Estimate For $200+ To Fix The “one” seat Belt. Can I Trust The Other 3 seat Belts (one Of Which Is Around A Baby seat In The Back). I Called The ford Motor Vehicle Consumer Service Line At 800-392-3673 And Spoke To A Gentleman Named Carson. Carson Looked Up Warranties On My Vehicle, Which I Kind Of Found Comical. On A Vehicle Of Almost 9 Years Old, There Does Not Exist A Warranty. He Asked If I Had An Extended Warranty And Promptly Let Him Know That That Would Have Expired A Couple Of Years Ago And Yes, I Did Have That. He Said That The Warranty On seat Belts Is Listed As 5 Years Or 50,000 Miles. What Happens After That? Are Air Bags The Same? I Have Just Over 100,000 Miles On My Truck. He Also Stated That There Have Been No Recalls On seat Belts For The ford F150, According To The Records Under My Vin Number. Should There Be A Full Scale Recall Of All ford Vehicles In And Around The Year 1997 That Installed The Same Make/model/year Of seat Belt? I Am Very Concerned About The Other 3 seat Belts (and One Being Over The Baby seat In The Back) And About All The Other Folks Who Are In Danger Of Their seat Belts Just Giving Way During An Accident. Dont’ Wait For An Accident To Happen And Kill Someone. When This Happened To My seat Belt, I Was Shocked. That Is The One Part Of The Car, Besides My Air Bag, That Better Not Ever Go Bad. The Part Has Been Ordered From My Shell Mechanic From ford And Hopefully I Will Be Able To Get The New seat Belt Installed On Tuesday/wednesday (5/23, 5/24) But Do I Trust The Other Three seat Belts? I See From The Questions Following This Description, You Want To Know If There Was An Accident — No, Thank God. But There Could Have Been.
