Question about 2001 Volvo V70
I had a problem like this. The seat belt stop (the small button through the belt) had broken and fallen off. When I tried put the seat up the belt had wound too tight and with no slack wouldn't release. I had to unbolt the bottom end of the seat belt from the floor and raise the seat. While I had the unit off the floor I had slack enough to release the belt and extend it to bolt the floor unit back down. There should be two of these button on the belt. One keeps the belt from rewinding too far and the other one holds the seat belt latch up on the belt. You can buy these buttons from some auto parts stores. You might have to buy a bag full, but they're not expensive. Good luck..

you need the car on level ground and try to take tension off the side that retracts however you can. hold it there a few seconds and try to slowly move the belt. good luck

middle seat belt shouldn't have anything to do with it. The seat locks down for stowage in the rear cargo area. you can pull the release handle on the back of the seat to release it back into the up position.
