Incorrectly fastened or unfastened seat belts increase the risk of severe or fatal
injuries. Seat belts will only offer the optimum level of protection when they are
fastened and used properly.
- Seat belts are the most effective means of reducing the risk of serious
and fatal injuries in the case of an accident. For the protection of the driver
and of all vehicle occupants, the seat belts must always be fastened properly
when the vehicle is in motion.
- Before every trip, each vehicle occupant must adopt the correct sitting
position, correctly fasten the seat belt belonging to their seat and keep it
fastened properly throughout the trip. This applies for all vehicle occupants
and also in town traffic.
- While the vehicle is in motion, secure all children travelling in the vehicle
in a restraint system suitable for their weight and height. They must also wear
correctly fastened seat belts .
- Only start driving when all passengers have correctly fastened their seat
- Never insert the latch plate into a buckle which does not belong to the
occupied seat and always ensure it engages properly. Using a buckle which does
not belong to the seat you are occupying reduces the level of protection and
can lead to severe injuries.
- Never let any foreign bodies or liquids get into the slot for the seat belt
buckle. This could prevent the belt buckle and seat belt from working properly.
- Never unfasten the seat belt while the vehicle is in motion.
- Never allow more than one person to share the same seat belt.
- Never travel when children or babies are being carried on somebody's lap
and fastened with the same belt.
- Never travel wearing loose, bulky clothing (such as an overcoat over a jacket).
This could prevent the seat belts from fitting and functioning properly.
Damaged seat belts are very dangerous and could cause severe or fatal injuries.
- Never damage the belt by trapping it in the door or in the seat mechanism.
- If the belt webbing or any other part of the seat belt becomes damaged,
the seat belts may tear during an accident or sudden braking manoeuvre.
- Damaged seat belts must be replaced immediately with seat belts approved
by Volkswagen for your vehicle type. Seat belts used in and stretched during
an accident must be replaced by a qualified workshop. Renewal may be necessary
even if there is no apparent damage. The belt anchorage should also be checked.
- Never try to repair, modify or remove the seat belts yourself. All repairs
to the seat belts, belt retractors and buckles must be carried out by a qualified
