The switch is normally in the seat belt buckle end not the retractor on Toyotas. I was surprised it was inexpensive when I had to replace it on my Toyota. I will forward you the procedure from the workshop manual from the address from which you posted this question.
Like I said. It's a 2000 Corolla, switch was not in the buckle. However I did find it where I thought it would be, "In the retractor assembly". One of the cogs is broken off of the gear assembly. A trip to the junk yard and $6 and it will be fixed.
