Broken female seat belt, 87 Cougar... fixes?

My son's car the female seat belt doesn't retain the male section. Anybody have any idea how we can fix it, other than replacing it. They are very expensive and hard to find. I think probably the spring is broken or just popped out, but I have no clue how to get in there to see if it's something we can fix.

Thanks for your help,

Well, IG, if it's a female seat belt--it must be ---PINK !!()

If it's his drivers belt, just swap with one of the rear belts/buckles

Then, you'd have time to either disassemble the bad buckle and fix, or check with Mustang/Cougar replacement parts (GOOGLE) !!

Junkyard has a swap list for other fords that will trade--

Good luck

Well Jimbo, unfortunately it's an obsolete part. No junkyards online or near me have one, and I haven't yet figured out how to get the sucker out to swap it or disassemble it. Dealer says nothing else will swap with it. I think I'm screwed! JC whitney has an entire belt assembly that I can have installed, but was trying to save a few bucks. It does fit the rear receptacle, but so far I haven't figured out how to remove the back seat to get that one out. Any hints? I've never taken seats out of anything before... Wish we'd bought him a Wrangler... Then the seatbelts would be easy to get to....

I've never had a Cougar, but most of them pull straight up in the center, then forward and should come out, maybe somebody who's had a Mustang/Cougar will join in

There are 2 basic ways to remove back seats. Remove bolts below the bottom cushion. If no bolts, It comes out by either pulling up or pushing straight back then pulling up. The back section is usually bolted (sometimes by seatbelt bolts) at the bottom.

Thanks guys, I got it out. Someone on the other forum told me how. Now I just have to figure out how to get the front out and then the seat belt buckle so I can swap 'em... Tomorrow's another day! Oh and if anyone wants to know, you push it back at the clips to release it and it lifts right out! I did it myself! Yay!

Autozone used to carry the female ends IIRC. I think they were under the help section.

Thank MCC, I have an entire seat belt that I got from AZ to put in the backseat of the Jeep, but never did it. Unfortunately the receiving end of it and the end on the Cougar are not the same size.... I didn't mess with it today. I may work on it some more this weekend, but I think I'm just gonna take it to a shop and let them wrestle out the drivers seat to get to the belt. Not sure they're gonna want to replace it with the end from the rear, but to me (in my crazy way of thinking) it should work. They are the same length and they mate nicely. So I don't see a problem.... Time will tell I suppose.
