Female Seat belt Connector

I'm having a hard time finding the female connector that attaches to the floor for my 96 ford explorer eddie bauer addition for my driver’s seat. The one I have the spring is broken so I cannot insert my seatbelt into it. I keep finding the male connector but I can't seem to locate the female part that attaches to the floor.

Mine is a light brown/tan color. Would you be willing to sell it?

It should be available from Ford. That's where I got mine from 3-4 years ago. It was around $45.

If you buy a used one make sure it is for a 1995-1997. Ford changed the design in 1998 and they will not work on a 1995-1997.

I had the same problem - got one from a junkyard for about $5. Don't worry about the color - you can reuse the plastic sleeve from your old one on the new buckle. You will need a Torex bit (T50 I believe) to get the mounting bolt off. Do a search - there is at least one very good thread on here with pics and all (maybe by Joe Dirt?) showing this job. Good luck.
