Seatbelt

Fastening/unfastening a seatbelt

Updated 1/14/2020

Make sure that all passengers have fastened their seatbelts before starting to drive.

Fastening a seatbelt

Pull out the seatbelt slowly and make sure it is not twisted or damaged.

Make sure that the seatbelt is correctly in the belt guide available for the second seat row's centre seat.

Note

The seatbelt locks and cannot be withdrawn:

  • if it is pulled out too quickly
  • during braking and acceleration
  • if the car leans heavily.

Lock the belt by inserting the locking tab in the intended buckle.

A loud "click" indicates that the belt has locked.

Warning

Always insert the tongue of the seatbelt into the buckle on the correct side. The seatbelts and buckles would otherwise possibly not function as intended in the event of a collision. There is a risk of serous injury.

In the front seats and in the outer seats in the second seat row the seatbelt can be adjusted for height.

Press together the seat mounting and move the seatbelt up or down.

Position the belt as high as possible without it chafing against your throat.

The seatbelt must pass over the shoulder (not down over the arm).

The seatbelt must pass over the shoulder (not down over the arm).

Tension the hip strap over the lap by pulling the diagonal shoulder belt up towards the shoulder.

The hip strap must be positioned low down (not over the abdomen).

The hip strap must be positioned low down (not over the abdomen).

Warning

Each seatbelt is designed for only one person.

Warning

Remember not to clip or hook the seatbelt to hooks or other interior fittings, as this prevents the belt from tightening properly.

Warning

Do not make any damages on seatbelts nor insert any foreign objects into a buckle. The seatbelts and buckles would then possibly not function as intended in the event of a collision. There is a risk of serous injury.

Unfastening a seatbelt

Press the red button on the seatbelt buckle and then let the belt retract.

If the seatbelt does not retract fully, feed it in by hand so that it does not hang loose.

Make sure that the seatbelt is correctly in the belt guide available for the second seat row's centre seat.
