Disconnect the battery negative terminal.
1. Wait at least 90 seconds after the ignition switch is
turned off and the negative (-) terminal cable is
disconnected from the battery before starting the
(The SRS is equipped with a back-up power source, so
if work is started within 90 seconds of disconnecting
the negative (-) terminal cable of the battery, the SRS
may be deployed).

The seat belts have small airbag like devices in them in the retractor mechanism. These go off like airbags when you are in a crash to ensure you stay tightly in your seat. Think of it like what happens if you pull the seat belt too quickly and it stops movement. You will need to replace the whole seat belt unit if this is the case.
inside your seatbelts there are small explosives known as pre-tensioners, when you crash these pre tensioners go off and pull you back into the seat as part of the SRS( supplemented restraint system) which means that aswel as new airbags you also need new seatbelts for your car.
you must replace seatbelts of the same type as they work in conjunction with the airbag sensors.just before the airbags go off the seatbelts retract(milleseconds)to pull any slack tight,and you back into the seat,
If the seat belt has jammed, you may just need to replace the mechanism- you want it to do its job correctly when you need it For your information,--You may need to replace the mechanism for the seat belt. If the impact restraint system has encountered what they refer to as a stage one deployment due to a minor accident, the seat belt locks up, and even though the airbag(s) hasn't deployed, there are frame sensors that may need replacing reset. We encountered this with my daughter's 05 Focus and needed to replace the belt assembly, and a couple sensors on the frame..
There is a gas cylinder that tightens the belt in a minor collision, it is a one time use part it is independent of the air bag deployment system, you will have to replace the seat belt gas cylinder, that may mean a new belt assembly, not sure on focus.
