Question about 1994 Saturn Sl
Talked with 3 vw guys and they don't know how I can turn off the power to my automatic seat belts (VW passat 1994, manual, V6).
Driver side is working passenger side gets stuck part way, problem is it's running down my battery if I don't keep disconnecting the battery.
My model has a little trap door on the upright between the front and back side windows that holds a manual clip that I can hook the chest belt to -- so therefore it would be easiest to just "turn off the juice" to the automatic ones.
There was no info i could find on the Web - and the CD with mechanical stuff for my car does not give an answer to this problem.

You'd need to pickup the need parts at the junkyard. You'll need the "A" to "B" pillar trim, lower "B" pillar trim, front seat belts and seatbelt giude from a 1995 SC1 or SC2.
The treaded hole in the frame of the car where the track of the automatic seatbelt assembly attaches is in a slightly different place than the three point system. Its not a problem though. You just need to drill a 3/4" hole slightly above the existing hole in the trim panel. The existing hole is hidden by the seatbelt and not noticable at all.
Everything else pretty much bolts or snaps into place.
I've done this swap on several 1991-1994 Saturn S-Series.

The battery hold down bolt is on the right front lower corner of the battery. You will probably have to take off the cowl plastic vent panel, but remove the windshield wipers first. If it is a factory battery , it will be heavy lifting it out from that position. I am repairing the front of a 2003 Passat in my shop now. Good luck!

You will need to check the track to see where it is jamed. There might be some parts that needs to be replaced...the fuse is probably bad by this point, but get it free before replacing the fuse if it blowed.

Probably best to replace, when the mechanism gets unreliable do not risk fixing try a wreckers yard, make sure the replacements pull out cleanly but lock when "jerked" hard.
