2003 Volkswagen Jetta Seatbelt is sticking

I recently bought a used 2003 VW Jetta. The passenger side seat belt was replaced after a minor accident along with the passenger side door. I've had this car for a few days now and all of a sudden, the seat belt on the passenger side wont work. It locked up, and then a few hour later was working again, but now once again it is stuck and I can not get it to come out. I bought it private party so there was no warranty so what I am wondering is if this is something that can be fixed, or do I need to go and have it replaced all together. Thanks.

    I have the same problem with a 2004 Sharan TDI, pulling out slowly doesn't work

    I have a 2001 Jetta GLS wagon and the back middle seat belt will not pull out. At first it got difficult and now it is locked up and gets tighter every time I put the back seat down. It was hardly ever used.

The body shop either did not replace the effected belt or replaced it with a used/defective one

Have you tried pulling it out real slow.. Also make sure car is stopped when putting it on.. Any fast forward movement locks the belt.. hope this helps

What does code n153 mean ]


In the future please be more specific about what you drive. So now I'm going to have to guess what you drive.

OK, 2001 Jetta, three-wire airbag plugs, two wire seatbelt plug (passenger side), four wire seatbelt plug (driver's side). Put in different seats. This is to eliminate the airbag light and restore the order: 1. Connect only positives on airbag plugs with a 4.7Ohm, 1/2 watt, 5% tolerance resistors; 2. Passenger side seatbelt plug: connect with a 2.2K Ohm, 1/2 watt, 5% tolerance resistor; 3. Driver's side seatbelt plug: bundle two positives together (in my case, red and yellow), two negatives together (two browns). Then connect with a 470 Ohm, 1/2 watt, 5% tolerance resistor. 4. Use Vag-Com to clear codes.

Passenger seat belt switch


Check under the passenger seat. I recently worked on a 2000 Jetta, it was located under the seat along the seat belt warning harness.

2000 vw jetta. driver's side door lock switch will unlock door, but not lock it. passenger side locks all doors properly


Your probably correct in that the drivers side door toggle is broken. Check a junk yard to get this piece cheaply. A Volkswagen dealer will be very expensive. Call around and give them the year,model and make of your vehicle to find a used part.

Passenger seat belt locks tight in place all the time. Passenger can't move.


check to see if the electrical connection is connected at the base of the seatbelt (most newer cars have these and they lock the belts down forever in case of an accident) if this is connected then i would say you need to replace the belt

Front seatbelt jammed


If the seat belt has jammed, you may just need to replace the mechanism- you want it to do its job correctly when you need it
For your information,--You may need to replace the mechanism for the seat belt. If the impact restraint system has encountered what they refer to as a stage one deployment due to a minor accident, the seat belt locks up, and even though the airbag(s) hasn't deployed, there are frame sensors that may need replacing reset.
We encountered this with my daughter's 05 Focus and needed to replace the belt assembly, and a couple sensors on the frame..
