1988 735il seat belt height adjust

I can't get the driver's side seat belt to lower at the door post. The passenger side is much lower. Is it stuck, electric or is there a push/pull something somewhere? Thanks

Does anybody know if my 1988 735 IL has the capability of the steering wheel tilting or telescoping? I find it to be very high, covers the message area if I sit back.
