SEGURIDAD DE LOS CINTURONES DE SEGURIDAD

WARNING

A seat belt should be replaced if the webbing becomes frayed, contaminated or damaged.

WARNING

Even if damage to the assembly is not obvious, it is essential to replace the entire assembly after it has been worn in a severe impact.

WARNING

If any damage, wear, cuts, defects, or impaired operation are noted with the seat belts, the vehicle should be taken to a retailer/authorised repairer for immediate attention. Do not use the vehicle if the seat belts cannot be operated correctly.

WARNING

Seat belts should be inspected or replaced by qualified personnel only. All replacement parts should be, at least, the same specification as the vehicle's original equipment. If in doubt, consult a retailer/authorised repairer.

WARNING

Do not attempt to service, repair, replace, modify, or tamper with, any part of the vehicle's seat belts; doing so may render the seat belts as ineffective.

WARNING

Care should be taken to avoid contamination of the webbing with polishes, oils and chemicals, and particularly battery acid. Cleaning may safely be carried out using mild soap and water. Contaminated seat belts may not operate correctly in an impact and cannot be relied upon.

WARNING

When using seat belts to restrain items other than occupants, take care to make sure that the belts are not damaged, or exposed to sharp edges.

WARNING

Do not carry hard, fragile, or sharp items between an occupant and the seat belt. In an impact, the pressure on such items can cause them to break, which in turn may cause death or serious injury.

Each seat in the vehicle has a dedicated seat belt. Each seat belt is designed for an individual seat occupant, aged older than 12 years, or with a body mass greater than 36 kg. Occupants with a lower age, or a lower body mass, should use an appropriate child restraint. See COLOCACIÓN DE LOS ASIENTOS INFANTILES.

All the seat belts (except for the rear centre seat belt) are equipped with a load limiter. The load limiter helps to regulate the over-tension of a seat belt in a severe impact, to help reduce the possibility of injury to the occupant.
