SEAT BELT PRE-TENSIONERS

WARNING

Make sure to read and fully understand the relevant warnings before using any of the features in this section. See SEAT BELT SAFETY.

WARNING

Always check and replace the seat belt pre-tensioners after any activation. Failure to replace the pre-tensioners reduces the effectiveness of the Supplementary Restraint System (SRS).

Seat belt pre-tensioners are fitted to the front, and all rear outboard seats.

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. As a result, forward movement of an occupant on a seat fitted with a pre-tensioner is reduced.

NOTES

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

Load limiters are fitted to all seats, except the second row centre seats.

Load limiters help to regulate tension of a seat belt in a severe impact.

NOTES

On some derivatives the centre second row seat is also fitted with a pre-tensioner and load limiter.
