Re: Anybody know how to unlock locked seatbelts? (hermz)

usually you just pull them all the way to the end and they unlock. If thats not it you might be into something more serious like a jammed pendulum and that will require dis-assembly of the mechanism to fix.

Re: Anybody know how to unlock locked seatbelts? (bartlett608)

there are pyrotechnics in the mk4 seabelt retractors correct?

in the event of an accident, its meant to go off and lock the seatbelt?
i could be totally making this up, but im pretty sure ive heard it more than once.

Oh yeah, there is also that kind of lock. If its that, your looking at new seat belts either junk yarded or dealer.

Seat belts have a charge built into them now. If the airbags deploy so do the seat belts. It sucks the belt up tight against you. That's why they sell seat belt cutters, so you can get out. They are a one shot deal and are non-repairable or fixable. Just tried it on a Beetle. Salvage yard or dealer. Check at Car-Part.com. Pretty good prices.
