Default Sticky seat belt

had my C6 for almost two years, and had a problem come for the first time Saturday.
the drivers side seat belt would not click closed. it felt like it was fully seated & the release button was in its normal static position, but would not catch.
the only I could get it to lock, was using both hands and really pushing it in. after a few times, it caught
tried it several times since, and no problems. maybe something fell out of my pocket and was jammed in there.
been experiencing a run of small issues lately ( axle seals, crankshaft position sensor, seat belt ).
after almost 140k miles ( 40k are mine ), I guess it's to be expected.

A button or coin in the seatbelt connector has been known to happen.
I think 3 times that has happened to me.

Just be patient, flash light and dental tools.
No need to remove the seat; plus use gravity to asset you.

It may be something else?
I believe the connector is a $90 part plus tit has an electrical connection and to replace,
then yes out comes the seat assembly.
Good luck.

I'm thinking that something got stuck in there. usually, I don't keep anything in the front right pocket.
I don't have much leg room and anything in that pocket, ends up poking me in the leg.
it's been several days now, so either it's gone or was just a one off issue.
