Yeah it is but it's just a whole lot easier to get a new one cuz if you mess with it and get in a accedent it might not catch the stop latch.

I'm not sure on hazard part but I would just get it done soon. And any year should work.

Non-working seat belt = two black eyes in a frontal crash when the airbag hits you in the face like a baseball bat.
See it in vehicle rescues all the time.
