SOURCE: 1997 dodge ram 2500 van need to remove rear door latch linkage

Assuming you are reffering to the push rods. When engine is operating these rods spin around. They ar stuck, spray some liquid lock wrench into the rods, wait a couple days then try turning them by hand.

SOURCE: 1998 dodge ram 1500, front seats belts retracted

This may be a problem with the catch and release gear where the seat belt rolls up. The mechanism is supposed to catch only when the belt is tugged fast. Usually if you **** the belt back and forth a few times then pull really really slow the belt should release. If it does not then remove the plastic covering for the spool and look for foreign objects or bent parts.

pop the latches on each end of the seat in the front, if never removed you probably will need help to wiggle seat loose to get it out, good luck.

Both of my front seat belts are locked and can't be used. What can cause this?

If sticky fluid or dirt gets into the latch it will freeze up. I have taken belts out of vehicles and sprayed WD-40 or similar agents into them while hanging downward to rinse any debris out. Seatbelts are usually bolted to the floorboard under the seat.
