How to Fix seatbelts & Airbag in a wrecked tacoma

Is there a way to "fix" the seatbelts that are locked in place in a 2001 tacoma from being wrecked? I'll take it apart soon, but just wanted to see if anyone had any experience with this. ALso, Can I just pop a new airbag in the truck without it blowing up in my face? there? I read that the tacoma airbag sensors are a magnet/ball and that they "reset" with the ball back to the magnet after the wreck.

I have an airbag and steering wheel for sale if you're interested. You might as well replace everything listed above if you value your safety. Toyota seat belts are junk anyway. You'll spend more time than they're worth trying to rewind them, if it's even possible.

Took them apart and removed the airbag component and they appear to work okay. We'll see they aren't installed yet. FYI this is just my yard plow truck. It isn't going on the road.
