The mechanism will be mounted in the pillar to the rear of the driver's side door. You'll need to carefully remove the interior trim panel that the mechanism is behind to see what's up; could be something as simple as the belt being twisted back there.

If it is nothing simple like a twisted belt or a penny fallen into the wrong spot I would just replace the unit, even if it's a salvaged retractor from a junk yard. That is a safety of life item. Disassembling/repairing the retractor could open you up to a liability problem if it ever fails.
