Seat belt wrapped around electric headrest help

Hi , My wife of 35 years decided to babysit our sons dog and wrapped the passenger seat belt around the headrest on a 2008 535 xi

The only way for me to get this free is to remove the bolt holding the belt to the seat.

Can anyone tell me how to remove the plate and switches from the passenger side without screwing up or breaking anything? I am afraid of pulling on the switches

Help Please, Thanks

Welcome to the werkz.
Have you tried to give your self some slack in the belt by adjusting the seatback and the headrest, or by putting more tension on the belt to release the ratchet/locking mechanism.

If you don't have any joy with that, take a look at BMW TIS Online • 5' E60 • 535d (M57TU) Saloon • Seats • front seat, normal, electric


Riding in style

That is a great Web site and the instructions were great.

Got 45 days in skiing this winter in Vail but was a terrible snow year.

Think snow!
