Seat Belt Stuck

Just picked up a 500 today for my wife. It's a 2013 model. Passenger seat belt is stuck. Anyone else have this problem.

Seat Belt Stuck

Both the seatbelt and pretensioner have mechanisms. The pre tensioner should have a piece of braided cable about 5 or 6 inches long coming out of the top where it connects to the seatbelt. If it hasn't then it has deployed and will need replacing (40 on eBay). The seatbelt has a mechanism that locks it in place when there is an accident. This can be reset turning it in to a standard inertia reel belt (25 on eBay) or you will have to buy a second hand good one (85-100 on ebay). It should give you a light on the dash.

I can give you some help on how to change them. It's quite easy.

Or,

Its just clicked the mechanism. Pull very very slowly retracting every mm until it releases.
