Unhappy Door stuck shut, seat belt not working

I hope someone will be able to offer me a suggestion on how to fix this myself.

Checked the door before shutting, jam was clear. Suddenly as the door was shutting, the seat belt snapped into the jam. Door shut with seat belt and its plastic part that goes in the fastener.

Door is fully shut and will not open or move. Seat belt will not budge either.

Never heard of anything like this happening, and I'm surprised the seat belt snapped like that--never did that before--once it's settled, it never starts moving again.

Welcome.
I had that happen once - I got mine to open by pushing in on the door very hard while pushing the door button, then yanking. Good luck.
