We can hear the motor turning... We think it must be the belt that pulls the seatbelt has worn out at the sprocket...

Same thing seems to happen in our '89 Ford Tempo. Can hear seatbelt motor running when you open door or turn-on ignition but no movement. Shoulder restraint stuck in locked position so you need to lift it over your head when you get into the car.
