On my '90 Jetta both belt reels are mounted on the seat frame.
The shoulder belt goes from the center to the upper door (latch)
and the lap belt reel is attached on the right near the pivot of the seat
and crosses to the center of the car to latch near the lap belt reel.
You are saying the lap belt and reel is missing completely from the
seat? but the shoulder belt IS there????
