I hate the automatic seat belts on my 96 escort. I was wondering if I can convert them to manual seat belts?

The Canadian Escorts had manual belts. If you can find somebody up there to send you the parts a conversion is easy.

Yesterday I found a canadian escort in the JY, complete. Right down to the center console with the blocker plates. Does this setup bolt right in? If so, I'm gonna grab it all and do this.l

Grab that stuff right now!!! I am pretty sure it's a bolt in mod. I think you need to grab the trim as well.

Tomorrow, I will be down there, and it will be mine, seemed like the car had been there for awhile, and it was complete, all of the trim.

the auto seatbelts on these cars are true crap.i hate mine with a passion.this is the second escort i`ve owned and the drive belts inside the door shredded on both.the garage i bought my current `scort specializes in 2nd gens. and they said these belts have always presented with problems due to poor design.i agree.if the tiny little plastic housing that the belt actually clips to up top breaks,there`s nothing but the airbag between you and poosible death.wtf?!! i am very interested in this swap and plan to do it when i can find the parts and get the cash!

Where I live is dry and dusty. These conditions just tear up the cable mechanism. Yeah, if anybody knows where a guy could track down a source for the cdm stuff, everybody who rides in my car would think it was money well spent.
