Replacing front seatbelts in 06 Outback

You'll need the new belts, and need to remove some of the interior panels to get at the belt mechanism so it can be replaced.
I would suggest being cautious about removing some of the interior side panels if the car has side airbags.

Don't mix up side to side, disconnect the battery for 1 hour with the headlights on and you should be ok

If yours has the "lock up" mechanism like mine, they are a one time replacement item. Buy a set from a junk yard and install them. Sounds like you're repairing this thing yourself, so surely you can replace a seat belt.
It's an entire assembly, just start removing the side panel/trim pieces and you'll see how it works, it's very simple and only requires removing like 3 bolts to get it out once the trim pieces are removed.

they're not going to guarantee wrecked parts.
Subaru guarantees seatbelts for the life of the car, maybe call a dealer and save headaches?
