Driver seat belt switch bypass??

Airbag light on. Reset it with my tool. Code said driver seat belt switch. After resetting wiggled the driver seatbelt receptacle. Light came on. Pretty obvious what the problem is.

I have the wiring diagram but it is not obvious how to bypass it to make it think the seatbelt is always plugged in. Which it is when someone is driving. I see no harm in tricking the car telling it the seatbelt is always on.

Can anyone tell me for sure how to bypass?

Thanks for help.

1998 318i

wiring diagram shows:

blu/grn/yel from srs control through switch to seatbelt indicator on instruments
and
power from fuse f42 through switch to ground

I would go down the route of popping down the breakers and getting another one, a lot easier than messing around with the wiring, also it may not work.
