Default Air Bag light warning- Seatbelt Retractor Switch?

I need to address an annoying issue on the 2002 Limited before daughter takes it to University soon. I appologize in advance for thw sophomoric questions and not having service manual...thanks in advance for helping.

Symptom: The airbag light & chime continues to come on and go off while driving every minute or so.

Dealer said it is the drivers side seatbelt retractor switch . There are a few cruiser donors in the local yard so I figured I would grab one from there and swap out.

As mentioned, I do not have a manual yet, and before I go tearing into the donor car and ours, I wanted to ask some questions here.

1) Does the diagnosis fit the symptom and is this common?, If so Q#2, if not Q#3
2) Is this a pretty straight forward job and I can pull the interior trim off to access the switch and swap one out? Any special tools or technique to not damage the switch or any other tip?
3) What causes this issue and how to solve it?

Thanks. MarkO
