Question about Seat Cars & Trucks
Drivers seat belt is stuck and will not pull out. It is a new seat belt; never installed
Since it is never installed, you may be tryinfg to activate it while holding it in your hand. And as the previous answer says, if it is not in the right position/angle, it will not function. There are weights that move around and lock the gear in the case of a collision or rollover. it will only work in the correct position.

You are probably pulling belt at the wrong angle and it won't release. Pull with easy steady tension, trying a different angles and it should come free for you. If it doesn't, then take it back to SEAT or VW, they can show you in 1 minute how to free it. Since it's a mandatory safety device, there should be no charge unless it requires replacement.

Please check if your seat belt has "Retractors" or "Automatic Retractor".
Follow these steps to determine if you have a retractor system that will hold car seat securely or your seat belt won't retract as should be:
A. Pull belt all the way out.
b. Allow belt to retract about 6 inches (15 cm).
c. Pull out on belt again.
If belt is locked and you cannot pull the belt out any further, you have an Automatic Locking;
If you pull the belt again all the way out and won't return to normal operation, then the mechanism is damaged, but try first the "retractor" lock to be sure. By Federal Law, nobody will sale a seat belt in a junk yard, try the dealer or order thru the dealer the whole seat belt or the mechanism. I hope that is just a matter of the automatic retractor; you can see this information in your car's manual. Try and we will see.
