Default Driver side seatbelt stuck! Please help!

So today I got on my car reached over to get my seatbelt on and I heard "click" and it wouldn't budge a bit! Sound like when the seatbelt locks when you pull it to fast! Anyone had this problem? Please help!

Any seatbelt problems I've ever had have been solved by pushing the belt all the way in (retracted) then pulling out slowly, making sure there isn't a twist in the belt.

Be careful...that retractor may contain a pyrotechnic pre-tensioner.

Is there an incline were you are parked. The pangolin may be stuck. Hey if that's not the right spelling it's the phones fault.

All i can think of is... make sure you didn't close some of the slack in the door. I've done slick moves like this before and blamed the car...

So the seatbelt is secured at the bottom with a torch screw that was already stripped! Then after I cut the plastic and got that off then you would never guess that there was another screw but I was able to get it out with channel locked then inside are some gears that were all jacked up and twisted so I took them apart and cleaned them and sprayed them with lube!
