Seat belt sticking

On my passenger side of my 2015 Sport my seat belt gets stuck some times and wont come out of the holder . Now this is my wife's side and she has a habit to hold on to the belt so it is not all the way tight to her body for comfort reasons . I don't know if this has something to do with it . When tis happens some times she steps pot of the Jeep and gets back in and it works . The jeep is running at the time when this happens because LOL I am the first to get in . I have tried shutting off jeep when this happen but it remains stuck . Remember is not all the time this happens .

Thanks in advance

This happened to me. I found that it was sticking because it was too high up on the seatbelt holder bar, where you can change the height, and it was sticking. It got fixed by moving it down a bit.

Engine running or not has nothing to do with it. It is simply a matter of the belt attachment at the door, the tensioner at the bottom of the B pillar and the mechanical latch where it buckles.

My TJ driver latch sometime sticks a bit because it's 15 years old. Sometimes a retractor will "stick" if you have pressure on it and may not always retract fully. If it sticks I usually just jerk a bit on the belt and then it will free up.

The tensioner has a velocity detector to lock the strap. Pull it easy and it will move, jerk on it and it locks. It's designed that way so you can move around slowly, but a fast pressure on the belt and it locks to keep the person in the seat.

Seat belts have a significantly different warranty than the rest of the car. I had an old cavalier back in the day that had been out of warranty for years. I needed to buy a seat belt latch and the dealer wouldn't sell it to me. They "had to" replace it for free. You should talk to your dealer.
