2002 VW Golf TDI two-door seat buckle is disabling airbag system

My 2002 VW Golf TDI two-door needs to have its seat belt buckle-lock assembly replaced again. The passenger seat tilts forward and back often to access the back seat which wears the wires in the buckle (this, I understand from the dealer). Once the circuit is broken the airbag system is disabled. It is $160 for the part plus seat removal time to install. Is there a way to fix the wires without a new seat buckle mechanism?
Thank you.

    use a pin extract tool to remove the broken wire pins from the plug shell and crimp new pins onto the loom and refit into the plug shell

SOURCE: bluetooth pairing vw golf 08

Alot of European cars are made with the older basic 1.0 version of Bluetooth, where as phone's these days are being made with the later version 2,0 i think. To get around this if taken back to manufacturer some will have a patch to run over the bluetooth in order to upgrade or just simply buy a new bluetooth carkit and install.

How do i take the front passenger seat out of my 2002 vw bora tdi i need to tidy some wires up underneath will i have to reset anything if i take the seat out i dont want to have to take it to vw i dont...


4 bolts located in the rails that the seat runs back and fourth in when adjusting seat position. They are usualy spline drive bolts. turn ignition off first, If your car has a side airbag, should not have any problems unplugging things.
If it were me, I would tidy up the wires with the seat in place.
