E91 seat belt problems

Question

I am having trouble unlocking the centre seat belt of my E91 Touring. When I fold down the rear seats for long loads, the centre seat belt repeatedly locks up and will not release. (I've been told that it is an MOT failure!) I keep having to ask my local mechanic to do it for me but if it's so simple, I should be able to do it myself. If I can finally release it, I will fix a button on the belt itself so that it cannot do it again!

Please, can anyone advise, point me to photos, a video, anything that would help...?!

 

Thank you

if the release on the seat belt buckle isn't working then you will have to replace the buckle assy which will mount direct to the car structure normally the floor by a bolt. you can try a breakers or parts supplier( might be dealer only). It is an MOT failure and a safety issue because if you have an accident the person in that seat may not be able to get out.
