Yep, that's all she can tell you, "take it to the dealer."  But armed with your info, she will have a Ford rep contact the dealer service manager, and that rep will throw the BS card on the service manager and it will get fixed.  This is the type of BS that can harm a dealer's relationship with Ford and, and the dealer principal won't want that.  Safety items like air bags and seat belts carry different warranties and huge liability for both the dealer and manufacturer.  Ford will fix it, usually cheerfully.   

 

The other option would be to go to another dealer, which is probably a good idea based on the way you have been treated.

OMG! This just happened to me. Just when I thought it was finally fixed for good.

I folded down the 2/3rds back seat to load a box and when I got home I can't get the seat to lift back again.

Of course, it's a 2013 FFH.

Is there any way to jiggle it loose?

I brought my car to Ford today. They replaced the seatbelt retractor assembly in the middle. It was covered under warranty.

Where are you at mileage wise? They told me it would be approximately 400 dollars to fix. They said no warranty, nothing was available...May i ask what "warranty" they covered it over...

 

The FordService has all but disappeared...

 

Ended up getting into it this weekend. Removed the bottom seat, undid the seatbelt torx bolt, loosed the slack on the belt, and it all retracted back and "works" again! Woo hoo. Still locks up, but at least now I can buckle it before lowering the seat

 

 
 
Had to use a ratcheting strap to hold the seat up in order to get the bench out

If you remove the seat make sure to capture the hook when re-installing the seat

I am a low mileage driver. I bought the car in February 2013 and only have about 19,000 miles on it.

What size torx bolt are the seat belts bolted down with?

Torx T50.

 

89,9xx on my 2013 FFH and this happened today.  I was able to pull the cushion to unbolt the bracket, however the belt retracted completely into the seat and will not release at all.  The belt is fully retracted with the buckle pulled to the reel and will not release.  Going to the dealer this week for the 90k oil change and will inquire about a fix, but I already know how this song and dance goes.  

 

Considering this is a safety issue, it wouldn't be a bad idea for those with this issue to file a complaint with NHTSA.  I have done so and it takes roughly five minutes.  These complaints are what NHTSA uses to open recall investigations.  The complaint can be submitted online here: https://www-odi.nhts...hicleComplaint/

fixed it by myself. 

By a T50 Torx. 

1. Remove the bottom of the back seat 

2. remove the center seat belt mount (I don't know the name of this thing, it is the bottom part for the seat belt on driver side)

3. put the center on the correct angle and fix the mount back.

4. Put the seat back on. 

 

Total cost of 15 minutes, and $7.
