The driver's side seat belt on my 2009 BMW 335xi will no

The driver's side seat belt on my 2009 BMW 335xi will no longer go into the buckle ((i.e. female part). It stops short of the click and cannot be forced in, at least by me. Interestingly, I am not getting the dashboard warning that the seat belt is unbuckled when I start up, meaning, I suppose, that the car thinks it is buckled. That suggests there is something electronic going on. I cannot see anything obstructing the buckle and nor could the BMW tech when I ran it briefly by the dealership this weekend. I have an appointment tomorrow morning but am concerned that I will be faced with a $1,000 bill for what should seem like a very simple problem. Thoughts anyone?

I have a 2008 BMW 550i and all the sound is on mute for more

I have a 2008 BMW 550i and all the sound is on mute for more than a year now. Initially was an on and off occasionally and then it just went silent. No door rings, no seat belt reminders, no radio, cd player, sound. The radio and command computer center still works normally I can change from CD to radio, change radio stations, access the computer info. Just no sound. I also have tried to unplug the battery cable for 30 minutes and back, hold the three buttons at the same time to reset the system. Nothing worked. What's your diagnosis Dr.?
