My outboard rear seatbelts either lock up retracted, or if I get them extended, they don't retract. Is there a port where I can access them to manually unlatch them and tie them off so passengers can use them?

It's best to properly repair them as there is liability involved if you are in accident. You may be able to get them in a wrecking yard, look on line. When trying to locate or find second hand parts, the best way post a request to many wrecking yards at the same time is to Google the words "wrecking yard parts" or "used auto parts" if you want to be a little more specific enter the manufacturer of your vehicle example "Lincoln used parts". May links appear that allow you to enter the details of your vehicle and the parts you are looking for. This request is then sent out to thousands of wrecking yards through out the country and they then send you an email or give you a call with the price and availability of the part. it is the wrecking yard that pays a small commission for the service.
