front harness locks and rear door won't open

I have search repeatedly and have found nothing.

Often, when I attempt to open the rear doors, the locking mechanism on the front belt locks and the rear door won't open. I have to work the belt back and forth until it either releases partially or sometime completely. Is there a pendulum mechanism that locks the harnesses when the car lurches forward? Because this happens on both sides, I feel there must be a single unit that controls both locking devices.

All help will be appreciated.

Pretty sure the seatbelts are standard inertial reels. Pull too fast and they lock.

Try opening the doors slower.

Thanks for the advice, however, it will lock no matter how slowly I open it sometimes. Sometimes it doesn't lock up at all. This is my third 8 (previous two were series I) and I never had this problem.

Any other suggestions?
