I agree.  Take it apart.

I had to fix one in my Corrado a while back, and for
the retractor, it was just a cover that snapped on.  I
had to use a screwdriver to pop it apart, but it was
farily easy.

There will likely be a *really* long spring in there
(was in mine) that is supposed to retract it.  That
will probably want to pop out, so be careful.  If it
comes out, it will involve a very frustrating time of
rewinding it.  (Ask me how I know!)

If you can't get it together, you really are no worse
off than before.  You could also consider just getting
a generic, manual adjust seatbelt and bolt it in
