Driver side seatbelt is locked up

I just bought a 2006 Cobalt SS and the driver side seat belt is locked up. It is a rebuild and i have heard that if the air bags go of the seat belt permanently locks up. Is this true?

yes if the airbags deploy, the seat belts will permanently lock up and they must be replaced. Can't unlock them.

No warranty only covers defective / naturally broken items. If your car was in a wreck it should have been taken care of when the vehicle was repaired. If it just happened to lock up without having been wrecked, then yes, it would be a warranty issue. Either way your 2008 would be far outside of warranty on it, it would not be covered under powertrain and I think that's all you should have left by now. I would go back to the shop and complain that it was not replaced.

One of my friend's car is like that too. I keep telling him he needs to get it replaced, but he's too cheap to do it. I'm just waiting for him to get a ticket for it.

I'm at the stage now where i bought the seat belt assembly but I need a guide on how to change it lol. (auto noob). The seatbelt still works but i have the annoying airbags error everytime i start the car. The only thing that got it to dissapear was adding a resistor in there. I dont want to jeopardize my passengers so thats not an option.
