Clean the cookie crumbs out of the receiving end of the seat belts. Not even kidding. You need some high pressure air. Or a pressure washer (ask around - pressure washer owners always are looking for a reason to use those things). I'm not being funny, if the belts won't latch, something is clogging the latch. Unless the male end of the belt is too short, or the receiving end is too short, and they just don't reach. In which case the operator my be the issue.
You really should just go to a salvage yard and purchase another latching mechanism, for safety reasons prying and shoving a screwdriver into the latch can be a temp fix that could interfere with safety later on down the road when you really need your safety belt...
Normally if you take it in for regular service Gm would do this as part of the service, regardless the door failed tel them you will report it to the better business bureau and to the state industrial safety board and they will be sure it is handled, contact your local state board of transportation DOT and report it they will get something done, also tell the dealer what you are going to do they may change their mind.
If you mean that the buckle won't lock into the latch, or receiving part of the seat belt mechanism, yes. The latch probably needs to be replaced, but I would recommend having the dealer replace it so that the torque specifications and legal obligations are met. You might have something in it that could be cleaned out with compressed air, but you want to make sure it locks securely in the event of an accident.
