Re: mkIV rear seatbelt stuck (pgaks2)

The same thing happened to my mkIV jetta. supposedly there's a release latch you might be able to hit by working a flathead screwdriver down into the top cover where the belt retracts. I never could get mine to release, so I ended up slicing off the belt and forgetting about it.

You need to make sure the seat is latched on the backrest. If this still dosent work, fold the seat down and if you look where the back of the seat attaches to the car ( top corner of the seat) , theres a piece of metal that the latch on the car is supose to push down in the back of the seat. I took a screwdriver and push it down to get it unlatched and then it worked fine.
