Default Safety Belt... need to be replaced

Hi..

I got lots of rain and today night, and felt fear.

The first priorty for me to fix the safety belt, but I don't know how to fix it.
What is the best way? and cheapest?

Body shop? Junk yard? or fixing by myself.?...
Please share your tips.

Thanks in advance.

Is it the whole thing or just the part that the belt clicks into? (The short part.)

Default Safety Belt

Well,
I think the seat belt shold stop quickly in the case of accident.
I pull the seat belt out quickly, but it doesn't stop immediately. Sometimes it does.

Mechanic said every car has different design for the seat belt. He said some of seat belt does't stop when a driver pull it out and it stops only when there is the accident.
In the case of accident, the bolt drop down and lock the belt retractor.

I am wondering whether the safety belf of 93 bonneville should stop when I pull it out or not.

I can go check mine, but you'll have to wait until I wake up! Check back later today, I can check 2 different 93'* for you today.

My 93 SSEi and JSeabert'* 93SSE are the same. Pulling on the seatbelt quickly will not necessarily lock it up. It depends more on vehicle inertia. I think yours is fine.

I haven't tested it in a while, but I think that the belts in the few GMs that I have had only lock when you slam on the brakes. I'll have to check it.

According to my dealer, my seat belts lock up when there is a sudden change in motion. Fast starts and stops, sliding, slaloms, etc...
