    hi everyone

    so after several days spent inside my w124 estate putting leather in and the extra seats it almost finished, just got drivers seat and door cards.

    so at about 9 30am i started removing trim out of boot area, (i wont go into it as it was adrawn out affair with lots of head scratching and question marks) but after several hrs of sweat and huge chunks of my hands and knuckles missing i got it all in except for one of the seat belts, its locked up and i cant seem to free it up, i think its been rolled up to far and when ive tried to unravel it, its locked up but cant be moved back

    anyone got any ideas how i might be able to free it up heading up north tomoz to see family and wanted my little kids to be able sit in the back for the blackpool illuminations,

    any info would be of great help

    Sounds like the inertia part has locked up, try holding the belt vertical and gently pulling it out. :dk:
