The movable anchor point for the shoulder seat belt is stuck midway along its track at the upper left corner.

When the door is opened, the anchor point is supposed to move along its track to the front part of the door. This allows the driver to exit the car.

When the ignition is turned on, the anchor point is supposed to move along its track from the front of the door window frame to the rear of the frame. This secures the driver in the seat.

The driver side is stuck. The passenger side works fine.

Is the motor jammed? Is the motor located front or rear of door frame? How does one replace the motor?

There is considerable possible causes including the motor. You should be able to access the motor by removing the panel behind the drivers door in the rear passenger compartment.

Do you want testing procedures on the circuts listed?
LEt me know which way you want to go.

Thank you for the diagrams. It is definitely helpful to know where the motor is located. I'll have a go at it and see.

The text labels on the diagrams are tough to read, it would be helpful if you can email higher res diagrams. Also email test procedures for the circuits. I do not have tools for testing, but might benefit.

I do not understand your question "Before this stopped working was the mouse chattery in it's travel?" As best I can remember, it just stopped. When I attempt to jostle the mouse, it does not budge, which suggests the motor is jammed. I would have expected it to jam at one of the endpoints, but the jam is about 5-6 inches from the rear endpoint.

Thanks.
