Usually when a seat belt acts it is best to just replace it, but sometimes crud can foul things up in the retract unit, try using some high pressure air and blow into the retract unit, see if you get anything out of it and if it starts to function like it should, if not then your only choice is replacement. You could try an auto wrecker for a replacement assembly, most of them have a warranty on the part.
