Trying to remove the...

Trying to remove the b pillar passenger side trim to see why the seat belt wont work properly.2006 Explorer Eddie Bauer

Mechanic's Assistant: Which belt is acting up? And when was it last changed?

Front passenger side. It is original.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Explorer yourself? What have you tried so far?

It pulls out part way, enough to latch, but there is no quick lock when pulled as in an accident. If pulled all the way out it ratchet back to where there is no wiggle room. Thought if I removed trim I could see what was going on and fix.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I think if I could get the trim off without destroying it I could probably figure out whats wrong.

The B pillar trim panel comes off in two pieces, the upper and the lower. See the steps for both in the link below. If you need the seatbelt steps as well let me know.

What Customers are Saying:

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey
