Seatbelt Arm Broken, what to do

Hi all,
I have a coupe with the little robot arm that hands you the seat belt. Last night I got caught in the rain and jumped in rather quickly while trying to manhandle a large bag. Somehow the harness got caught on the seat belt arm and pulled on it hard. Now the arm doesn't fully retract and sticks out about 2 to 3 inches when at rest. But it still hooks and pushes the seat belt to you when needed. It just looks funny not fully retracted while at rest. Also, I guess it could get in the way a little if I needed to get in the back seat. So basically trying to figure out if this thing is worth fixing or not since it is still functional. Curious if it could be an easy DIY to make it right. Anyone have any experience with this arm??
