VW jetta passenger seatbelt locked up tight?
and it is flat against the B pillar trim?
I would say, try to "give it slack" upward against the direction of retraction- but that would almost mean trying to stretch the belt I'm sure. The other option is to open both doors, and remove the lower trim panel from the "B" pillar and remove the bolt holding the retraction reel to the pillar, in order to allow it to retract enough to disengage the centrifugal clutch inside

How do I remove the lower trim panel from the b pillar?
You will need to remove the "kick panel" that runs along the side of the wall- you may just be able to pull away the center section that runs at the base of the B pillar- and there will be two phillips screws behind there, holding the bottom end of the trim panel in place. Otherwise it is just wrapped around and tucked under the lip of the rubber door seal, and held by some plastic retaining pins that just slide in and out when removing/installing.
