- the contact stated that the seat belt retractor on the passenger's side of the 2001 Mercury Sable will not retract. The dealership informed the contact the retractor was folding the belt over, which caused it to jam. The dealership advised the contact the seat belt retractor needed to be replaced. The contact spoke with the manufacturer. And they informed him this was not covered under the warranty. The current mileage on the vehicle was 28,000. The consumer provided the invoice for repair and pictures before the repair. Update 05/04/07
