seat belt chime - DRIVER side -- going off randomly

I searched this forum for a while on this. Many posts about the passenger side chime going off randomly (usually because there is something on it)... but not the driver side. First occurred this past weekend on a hot day. Within a minute upon starting the vehicle and clamping the seat belt. After multiple disengagements/re-engagements, re-starting the car, no change. Alarm went off by itself after a couple of minutes. Came back on randomly later. Now, it's occurring daily, randomly, and I believe it has nothing to do with the heat. Ideas? Thanks!

Is there goop in the lower belt (the part where you insert the metal piece and push the button to release)? Like a spilled macchiato or melted crayons that might cause a sensor to misbehave? It looks like it's the same part number for the left and right belt so what I would do if it were my car is switch it with the passenger side and see if problem goes away.
