First read and observe the introductory information and safety warnings
The seat belts in the vehicle are part of the vehicle safety concept and are made up of the following important functions:
Automatic belt retractor
Every seat belt is equipped with an automatic belt retractor on the shoulder part of the belt. Full freedom of movement is made possible when the shoulder belt is pulled slowly or when the vehicle is travelling at normal speeds. However, if the belt is pulled out quickly or during sudden braking, during travel in mountains or bends and during acceleration, the automatic belt retractor is locked.
The seat belts for the front seats and possibly the outer rear seats are equipped with belt tensioners.
The belt tensioners are activated by sensors during severe frontal, side and rear collisions. They retract the seat belts against the direction they are pulled in. A loose seat belt is pulled in which can reduce the forwards movement or the movement of the vehicle occupants in the direction of the impact. The belt tensioner works together with the airbag system. If the side airbags are not activated, the belt tensioner will not be activated if the vehicle rolls over.
A fine dust may develop when the airbags are triggered. This is quite normal and does not mean there is a fire in the vehicle.
Belt tension limiter
The belt tension limiter reduces the pressure exerted by the seat belt on the body during an accident.
All safety requirements must be observed when the vehicle or components of the system are scrapped. Qualified workshops are familiar with these requirements .
