SEAT BELT PRE-TENSIONERS

WARNING

The seat belt pre-tensioners only activate once, and then must be replaced. Failure to replace the pre-tensioners reduces the effectiveness of the Supplementary Restraint System (SRS) in the event of an accident. The risk of serious injury or death in the event of an accident is then increased. The seat belts and pre-tensioners must be checked and, if necessary, replaced by a retailer/authorised repairer after an impact.

The seat belt pre-tensioners activate in conjunction with the SRS to provide additional protection in the event of a severe frontal impact. The seat belt pre-tensioners automatically reduce any slack in a seat belt, reducing forward movement of the occupant.

Seat belt pre-tensioners are fitted to the front seats. Depending on the vehicle's specification, seat belt pre-tensioners may also be fitted to the rear outboard seats.

NOTES

The rear centre seat is not fitted with a seat belt pre-tensioner.
