Default Fixing stuck middle rear seat belt

Hi all I need a bit of help. I am trying to change my middle rear seat belt on my 99.5 Jetta.

The one I had didn't have a steel wire connected to the seat release mechanism but the one I bought from a used parts dealer has one. When the wire is in the pulled position, the mechanism of the belt is release and when it is at rest, it is blocked.

I can't figure out where the steel wire is supposed to be attached as there is no fixture that seems to be made to hold it.

Can I simply remove that wire or is there something I am not seeing?

Here is the new belt

This is the back seat release bracket


This is my old seat belt
