When the seat belt fails like this here since it is a safety device it cannot be tampered with and has to be replaced.It sounds like this is what has occurred here with your seat belt needing replaced to correct this fault here unfortunately.I don't recommend tampering with the seat belt due to it being a safety device and this can damage it permanently.You can see if you can locate a used one at a cheaper cost in some cases.
