The Front Seat Belt on my 1985 Mercedes 300D is jammed and won't release

The Front Seat Belt on my 1985 Mercedes 300D won't release. I took it out of the car and it still wont release. My hunch is that this item can't be repaired and it has to be replaced. I'm alittle leery of dissasembling it too much as I dont want to watch the inside spring uncoil all over my garage..

Is there a way to fix this thing? Or is worn out?

Probably either worn out or has something stuck in it. In either case, a perfect part to get at the recycle yard....

I also have a problem with one of my front seat belt buckles. How do you get the piece of plastic trim, colored like the seats, off? Appears that you need to get that off before you can remove the buckle assy. from the side of the seat.
Thanks in advance for any help or suggestions.

It prys off BUT the tabs that hold it usually break when you pry them off.

No there are two screws that hold the bottom

No there are two screws that hold the bottom trim on the floor on. Take that piece off rirst and the long piece of trim will falloff automatically. Please dont pry or break thats not how Mercedes rea made

Maybe not applicable to '85 but...

Drivers side belt would not catch on my 75 240D.
Good family owned independent employee explained not really fixable, need to replace, hard to find used.
Owner's frau test drove car to verify other repairs. She couldn't get seat belt to engage.
Told son to fix it.
Works fine.
No charge.
Good luck to you!
