get your dealer to replace the seat belt, depending on age, should be under warranty. Belt is defective. I have a g 2003 vue, and my dealer replaced the belt for no charge.

Nope typically, you need to extract the seat belt roller mechanism. Carefully you need to open the covers, do not bust any catches, get a strong light. Where you need to wind up looks like a ratchet. Along this ratchet is a catch that needs to be manually released.
This release is not always very easy, often the belt being tight restricts surgical access.
If you even think that you may have damaged or tweeked something during this process, replace the whole belt. It is your life that depends on it.
I have never had to replace a seat belt, so it is not too fragile, just be carful.

You may have to take this one in. It is an inertia reel and is made to retain tension at all times, if you relieved the tension, reel is "sprung" and will have to be completely disassembled, in some accidents if the seat belt is used in the impact and impact is severe enough, inertia reel has done its intended job and needs to be replace entirely.

Testimonial: "I thought that might be the solution. "
pop bottom cover off and check for debris caught around spool ,ratchet jammed or belt twisted these are the three most common problems
