SEAT BELTS (3/3)
Adjusting the height of the
front seat belts
Use button 7 to adjust the seat belt
height so that the shoulder strap is worn
as shown previously. Press the button 7
and raise or lower the seat belt. Make
sure that the seat belt is locked in posi-
tion correctly after you have adjusted it.
The following information applies
to the vehicle’s front and rear seat
– No modification may be made to the component parts of the originally
fitted restraint system: belts, seats and their mountings. For special o\
erations (e.g. fitting child seats) contact an authorised dealer.
– Do not use devices which allow any slack in the belts (e.g. clothes
pegs, clips, etc.): a seat belt which is worn too loosely may cause inj\
ury in the
event of an accident.
– Never wear the shoulder strap under your arm or behind your back.
– Never use the same belt for more than one person and never hold a baby o\
r child on your lap with your seat belt around them.
– The belt should never be twisted.
– Following an accident, have the seat belts checked and replaced if neces\
sary. Always replace your seat belts as soon as they show any signs of wear.
– Make sure that the buckle is inserted into the appropriate catch.
– Ensure that no objects are placed in the area around the seat belt catch\
as they could prevent it from being properly secured.
– When the rear seats are being put back, make sure that the seat belts an\
d buckles are correctly positioned so that they can be used properly.
– Make sure the seat belt catch is properly positioned (it should not be \
hidden away, crushed or flattened by people or objects).

METHODS OF RESTRAINT IN ADDITION TO THE FRONT SEAT BELTS (1/4)
Depending on the vehicle, they are
– seat belt inertia reel pretension-ers;
– central seat belt pretensioners;
– chest-level load limiter;
– airbags – Driver and passenger
These systems are designed to act in-
dependently or together when the vehi-
cle is subjected to a frontal impact.
Depending on the severity of the
impact, the system can trigger:
– seat belt locking;
– the seat belt inertia reel pretensioner (which engages to correct seat belt
– the lap belt pretensioners to hold the occupant in his seat;
– the front airbag.
The pretensioners hold the seat belt
against the body, holding the occupant
more securely against the seat, thus in-
creasing the seat belt’s efficiency.
In the event of a severe frontal impact
and if the ignition is switched on, the
system may engage the following de-
pending on the force of the impact:
– the seat belt inertia reel preten- sioner 1 which instantly retracts the
– the lap pretensioner 2 on the front
– Have the entire restraint
system checked following
– No operation whatso-
ever is permitted on any part
of the system (pretensioners,
airbags, computers, wiring) and
the system components must not
be reused on any other vehicle,
even if identical.
– Only qualified personnel from our Network may work on the airbags;
otherwise the system may trigger
accidentally and cause injury.
– The electric trigger system may only be tested by a specially
trained technician using special
– When the vehicle is scrapped, contact an approved dealer for
disposal of the pretensioner and
airbags gas generators.
