I had that problem on the drivers side... As it turned out, the nylon drive belt inside the track had slipped on the sprocket, thus ripping through several gaps in the belt. It's not really a "BELT" since it is not a closed loop, but open ended, with holes that fit the drive sprocket, and efectively pushes and pulls the seatbelt up and down the track. This belt, track, and drive motor are available as an assembly, and requires some of the interior plastic panels to be removed. A screwdriver and a socket wrench is all that's needed to make the repair. I haven't acctually replaced mine yet, our state law only requires the lap belt, so I'll save the money for now and make the repair when I'm ready to sell the car. Besides, I really hated that dang thing! And the shoulder belt can be un-screwed from the seatbelt carrier, which is attached to the "belt" I mentioned earlier, and retracted right back to the rear floor. Check your state laws to verify your vehicle is still legal with only the lap belt. Keep in mind, if your insurance finds out that you've bypassed it, you may lose the deduction for active restraints.

The passenger sliding door of a Ford Windstar LX needs frequent cleaning and checking of the rubbers to prevent jamming. If a door jams a lot during sliding, take out the rubber linings and clean them up before re-attaching.

You can find a Chevy suburban rear passenger sliding seat drawing at most local libraries. You can also obtain the drawing from most Chevrolet dealerships.

If the sliding door on the 1999 Mercury Villager will not stay open, check for something that is not allowing the latching mechanism to lock into place. Make sure that the door is all the way back so that it can lock in.

The power sliding door fuse is located in the passenger side fuse panel to the right of the glove box. You need to open the passenger door, remove the access panel on the side of the dash and consult the layout map on the panel as to which fuse is associated.

Anti-submarining ramps don't have anything to do with submarines, I'm afraid. During a car crash, when a person slides underneath the seatbelt, that is called submarining. The seatbelt slides up onto the stomach, and can cause injury. An anti-submarining ramp is a ramp built into the seat cushion, underneath the foam padding, that helps to prevent the person from sliding forward on the seat underneath the seatbelt. This keeps the seatbelt in the proper position on the person's pelvis, and helps to prevent injuries to the stomach.

The sliding doors have brass contacts on the front of them. They need cleaned with emery cloth or steel wool occasionally and then lubricated with dielectric grease to prevent them from corroding quickly.

Dee Horton and Lew Hewitt invented the sliding automatic door in 1954 but the normal everyday ones... haven't a clue.

sliding friction is when you are sliding

There is no way to do this. There are child-proof locks on the sliding doors.

If it's the opening type, unscrew the latches and take it off.

If your problem is that the door keeps opening and doesn't want to latch shut, then what I have been doing is carrying a piece of 3M scrubbing pad and use that to scuff up the contacts on the door and the door jam contacts. Then the door functions properly for another month or so. There is a recall on the automatic sliding doors and it involves them not latching.

Curbside rear quarter. It's about a 70minute job to remove the dozen or so parts including seatbelt and every plastic trim piece from sliding door to the rear door.

Passenger side. Look under the car, between the front door and sliding back door.

The Ford Windstar sliding passenger door has adjustments on the roller guides. There are roller guides on the top and the bottom of the door. There are also adjustments on the stationary door latch.

Sliding your hands together is an example of sliding friction.
