SEAT BELT CARE

WARNING

It is essential to replace the entire assembly after it has been worn in a severe impact even if damage to the assembly is not obvious. Damage to the seat belt can greatly reduce its effectiveness in reducing the risk of serious injury or death in the event of an accident.

WARNING

The seat belt should be replaced if the webbing becomes frayed, contaminated or damaged. Damage to the seat belt can greatly reduce its effectiveness in reducing the risk of serious injury or death in the event of an accident.

WARNING

Care must 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

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

WARNING

When using seat belts to restrain items other than occupants, make sure that the belts are not damaged or exposed to sharp edges. Damage to the seat belt can reduce its effectiveness in reducing the risk of serious injury or death in the event of an accident.

WARNING

If any damage, wear, cuts, defects or impaired operation are noted with the seat belts, the vehicle should be taken to a Retailer/Authorized 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/Authorized 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

Do not use comfort clips or other devices that create slackness in the seat belt system.
