156 Seatbelt Locked

Hi Guys

The passenger seatbelt on my 01 156 has locked and cannont be moved.

After reading previous threads with similar problems I removed the retraction device and slowly fed the belt through but had no luck - the belt is still locked in its position

Is the next step to open the device itself? I would have normally opened it straight away but on both side in big letters it says ''Do Not Remove'' - with this warning I thought id ask the question first.

I appreciate any help!

Re: 156 Seatbelt Locked

Give it a smack. The little ball that controls the vehicle sensitivity part of the mechanism is probably jammed out of position.

Also - silly question but if you have removed it and are trying to feed the belt in and out, is the retractor mechanism sitting properly upright?
