Those appear to be rivets, not screws.

Beware that an explosive charge is normally incorporated in modern seat belt retractors! They are to tighten the belt during a collision. Don't mess with that part of the belt system -- just replace the assembly (with the battery disconnected, of course; follow the safety instructions in the FSM). In the U.S., the belts are often under extended waranty.

The receiver, where you insert the metal buckle, doesn't have the charge like the retractor assembly. The receiver often is replaceable separately -- use a new, OEM Toyota part though. If just sticky, try a little WD-40 spray in it to loosen up the plastic button, etc.

There may be a small piece of broken plastic or trash in there that blocks the tang. Try blowing it out with compressed air. Use eye protection, of course.

I use silicone lubricant spray since i use it on my airsoft guns (i don't have WD40 at the time). Plus compressed air to remove gunk/ hardened dirt. Until now it locks/unlocks flawlessly.
