Seat Belt Stuck

I wanted to bring this up again and clarify my earlier question. My driver's side belt will occasionally lock up when cold and then free up when the interior warms up. The passenger belt works fine so I do not believe the car restraint system itself is locking the belts. Either the pawl and ratchet is worn or the lubricant is old and dried up and more affected by cold. Is this a DIY job to lube ? How can I access the mechanism ? Is it on the CD ?
