Ford Escape: Seatbelts / Checking the Seatbelts

Check the seatbelts and child restraints periodically to make sure they work properly and are not damaged. Make sure there are no nicks, tears or cuts. Replace if necessary.

Check the following seatbelt assemblies after a crash.

  • Retractors.
  • Buckles.
  • Front seatbelt buckle assemblies.
  • Shoulder belt height adjusters.
  • Shoulder belt guide on seat backrest.
  • Child restraint LATCH and tether anchors.
  • Attaching hardware.

Read the child restraint manufacturer's instructions for additional inspection and maintenance information specific to the child restraint.

We recommend that all seatbelt assemblies in use in vehicles involved in a crash be replaced. However, if the crash was minor and an authorized dealer finds that the belts do not show damage and continue to operate properly, they do not need to be replaced. Seatbelt assemblies not in use during a crash should also be checked and replaced if either damage or improper operation is noted.
