suggestionHi,I am assuming you mean the latch that slides across the roof when you close the door...well, you have a couple of can go to a junkyard and pry one off another Mazda to replace it, or you can yank out the seatbelt sensor plug under the seat... however, I do not recomend it, as it also disables the weight sensor that determines whether the SRS should set off both air bags or one at a time in the event of a crash.I suggest you find a replacement part, and as grueling as it is, pull off the roof trim of your Mazda and reinstall it.what type of Mazda do you have?

I am having an issue with my drivers side door sensor. I have yet to do anything with it, but from what I know about VWs (i have owned and worked on them for 12 years) the door sensor is located in the door latch. I am currently looking into whether I can replace just the sensor or if i have to replace the whole latch...I read that the latch costs about 150.00. to install it, you would have to remove the door panel which can be tricky.

That is incorporated with the latch assembly.

Get in the vehicle and latch the seatbelt. Turn the key to "on" not "start". Wait for the seatbelt light on the dash to go out. Unlatch and relatch the seatbelt buckle 3 times within 10 seconds.

Complete the above steps all within 60 seconds. If you hear any dings during the process you must start over.

BEFORE you try to fix it, look for a RECALL on the part. Most MAZDA automatic belts from 90-94 have a 25-year recall open on the automatic seatbelt rails. If your dealer can find the part, they will change it for freeHey Zack==It has to be checked out to see what went wrong. GoodluckJoeYou have to investigate, it could be a few different things. I would try shaking where the seatbelt goes on the track to see if it starts moving. Or press the red button to disengage the seatbelt to see if that triggers it.The seat belt motor sits right behind the door. If you want to get to the motor, you have to take off the side panel in the backseat. You can try moving those wires to see if there is a short.There is also a black box that sits under the passenger seat and is bolted to the floor. Not the box that is bolted to the bottom of the passenger seat, that is the amp. Check the connections to that.You can also mess with the door latch and see if it triggers the seat belt to move forward.What I did is I just went to a junk yard and bought the motor, the track that goes over the door that the seat belt travels along and the little black box under the passenger seat all at once. All this cost $45. It was easier to do this than to find the short.

It"s connected to the hood latch. Hope this helps
