Where to Buy Seat Belt Receptical

Greetings all, my first post here, and it's a question...

My car is 2002 325i base model. The problem I'm experiencing is the seat belt receptical (passenger side, front) won't latch, it hasn't been fired and I have no SRS light, etc. Don't know if it's possible to repair the latch (broken spring?) but thought I'd just replace the whole thing.

But I'm having trouble finding a place to purchase a seat belt receptical (other than the dealership), the only place I found one was Bimmer Specialist but they say you can't buy it online becase it contains hazmat (the pyrotecnic pre-tensioner mechanism I assume). Obviously these items are shipped frequently, my guess is it's a matter of shipping just one part that would be too expensive.

I've done quite a bit of searching online, and have read through the DIY posts on this forum. I found great tips on how to replace the unit but not where to buy it. I live in Salem, Ore. by the way. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
