Hello and thanks for posting, unfortunately once the seatbelts are locked at the same time airbags are deployed to restrain forward movement of the occupants, they have to be replaced, these are the pretensioner type belts. There is a small explosive charge in each seatbelt assembly kind of like a small airbag, when deployed it locks the belt in place and is a one time use only like the airbags.
