In the large CHILTONS manual, 81-95 Ford Escort/lynx repair manual 8270-26240. Estimate cost $15. or less. In the body repair section 10. There is a complete diagnostic chart and pictures to help determine your problem. The diagnosis section on that vintage of seat belt..is about 8 pages long. In general, from my eperience. The system was faulty the day the vehicle was new. I purchase it in 1995 and it was in the ford repair shop for this same shoulder belt problem (NOT RELEASING). It was never fixed by 2-3 Ford dealers and when it went out of warranty. Fords reply was..it is out of warranty. Dear Henry Ford, if you are listening! Tell your people to either stand behind their product...or watch the Foreign Manufacturer drive over the top of Fords with no quality control or warranty provisions for Basic safety devices.

It is items like this that keep American lawyer with money and foreign cars to drive. They have to count on the vehicle getting them to court.

Can you hear me now!

If your tensioner is "automatic", or spring loaded in other words. It is not adjustable in most cases. They are either good or bad. If the spring does not hold the belt tight any longer, the tensioner has to be replaced, no adjustments are able to be made.

You can find 1993 Ford escort automatic shoulder belt replacement parts at most auto-parts stores. You can also find the replacement parts at most auto salvage yards.

no you will have to use a torque head bit and possibley a impact driver depending on how tight it is.

My 97 has pre tensioners. I see no reason for the 99 to not have it. Do you mean the seat belt has an automatic retracton? If so, the answer is yes.

User Avatar

Yes. If you have automatic seat belts be sure to your lap belt.

That I know of, there is NO serpentine belt, unless you are talking about the the Timing Belt (hardly serpentine, but anyway), it has a belt tensioner, not automatic, though.

Get a manual on your car from AUTOBOOKSONLINE.COM. It will have pictures and everything.

Diagrams for the 1992 Ford Temp serpentine belt replacement can be found online. One site that shows the diagram is 2 Car Pros. There should also be a diagram under the hood of the car.

Since they are mostly like Ford Telstars then I would suggest that you simply unplug the wires under the seat. That's all I did in my Telstar and the alarm stopped working. However, it is there for a reason so I plugged it back in and it works again.

If you look carefully at the tensioner, you will see a square slot drive. Insert a ratchet in there and turn it. Can't remember if up or down, but you will see the tensioner slack enough to remove the belt.

# Install belt on to all pulleys except belt tensioner # Using the extension insert it into the belt tensioner and push away from you.Carefully install the ribbed belt on the tensioner and slowly allow the extension to move toward you as tension is placed on the belt # Remove extension from belt tensioner and inspect the belt to be sure it is seated correctly on all the pulleys if not remove belt and reinstall

Automatic tensioner- no adjustment required, or provided. If the tensioner is out of limits, replace the tensioner.

Release tension at automatic tensioner use a breaker bar and socket

==Answer == There is a diagram under the hood (on mine, it is in the top left corner of the hood lid), if it is missing or unreadable, get a service manual.
