SOURCE: 1991 Camry seat belt
I had exactly the same problem and also power window problems. I found the wires in the bundle in the door jamb were broken in several places. When you open/close the door, the ends of the wires make contact intermittently and allow your seatbelt to move.
This wire bundle bends every time the door is opened, and the old, now brittle wire insulation breaks, then the copper conductor inside breaks.
You will have to take off the door panels for access.Pull the wiring out of the connector from the chassis side, pull the wires out of the feed through in the door so you have room to work, unwrap the tape and splice the wires that are broken. You will probably have to do this on both front doors since they are used so much.
Also, some of the wires may be broken inside the insulation, but the insulation looks OK:
so make sure to check for operation of seat belt/windows/doors/power locks, etc. by bending the bundle while holding the appropriate button. Otherwise you may have to do this again.
Try to buy low diameter splices because you will not have a lot of room if you splice too many in the same place (They all break in the same area)-otherwise you will have to install a new wire and splice at both ends.

Just bought a 95 escort same problem on passenger side. Mine was the door latch, it's covered with a rubber boot to make contact when shut. If the boot is wore out it makes contact all of the time causing it to stay in the shut door position. Being handy I cut a piece of plastic from a fast food place and fit it in between to break the contact when up. Belt moves as it should now.

You have to actually unbolt the belt holder behind the seat. Then from there you can check to see if the spring still works. You'll probably have to take the cap off it, wind the spring-load, then put the cap back on. If you can get to it, it's not too difficult. I recommend another pair of hands to help hold if they're available. You'll also want to make sure you've rolled the belt up as much as possible before before you coil the spring-load.
