  20. 20. Seat belts (3/3) – No modification may be made to the component parts of the restraint system (belts and seats and their mountings) fitted originally. For special operations (e.g. fitting child seats) contact an approved Dealer. – Do not use devices which allow any slack in the belts (e.g. clothes pegs, clips, etc.): a seat belt which is worn too loosely may cause injury in the event of an accident. – Never wear the shoulder strap under your arm or behind your back. – Never use the same belt for more than one person and never hold a baby or child on your lap with your seat belt around them. – The belt should never be twisted. – Following an accident, have the seat belts checked and replaced if necessary. Always replace your seat belts as soon as they show any signs of wear. – Make sure that the buckle is inserted into the appropriate catch. – Ensure that no objects are placed in the area around the seat belt catch as they could prevent it from being properly se- cured. – Make sure the seat belt catch is properly positioned (it should not be hidden away, crushed or flattened by people or ob- jects).1.14

  23. 23. METHODS OF RESTRAINT IN ADDITION TO THE FRONT SEAT BELTS (3/3)All of the warnings below are given so that the air bag is not obstructed in any way when it is inflated and also to preventthe risk of serious injuries caused by items which may be dislodged when the air bag inflates. Warnings concerning the driver’s air bag – Do not modify the steering wheel or the steering wheel boss. – Do not cover the steering wheel boss under any circumstances. – Do not attach any objects (badge, logo, clock, telephone holder, etc.) to the steering wheel boss. – The steering wheel must not be removed (except by qualified personnel from our Network). – When driving, do not sit too close to the steering wheel. Sit with your arms slightly bent (see the information on “Adjusting your driving position” in Section 1). This will allow sufficient space for the air bag to deploy correctly and be fully effective. Warnings concerning the passenger air bag – Do not attach or glue any objects (badge, logo, clock, telephone holder, etc.) to the dashboard on or near the air bag. – Do not place anything between the dashboard and the passenger (pet, umbrella, walking stick, parcels, etc.). – The passenger must not put his or her feet on the dashboard or seat as there is a risk that serious injuries may occur. In general, parts of the body should be kept away from the dashboard (knees, hands, head, etc.). – The devices in addition to the front passenger seat belt should be reactivated as soon as a child seat is removed, to ensure the protection of the passenger in the event of an impact. A REAR-FACING CHILD SEAT MUST NOT BE FITTED TO THE FRONT PASSENGER SEAT UNLESS THE ADDITIONAL RESTRAINT SYSTEMS, I.E. THE PASSENGER AIR BAG, ARE DEACTIVATED. (refer to the information on “Child safety: deactivating/activating the front passenger air bag” in Section 1) 1.17
  24. 24. Side protection devicesSide air bagsThese air bags are fitted to the frontseats and are activated at the sides ofthe seats (door side) to protect the oc-cupants in the event of a severe sideimpact. Warnings concerning the side air bag – Fitting seat covers: seats equipped with an air bag require covers specifically designed for your vehicle. Contact an approved Dealer to find Depending on the vehicle, a mark- out if these covers are available. The use of any covers other than those ing on the windscreen informs you designed for your vehicle (and including those designed for another vehicle) of the presence of additional means may affect the operation of the air bags and reduce your protection. of restraint (air bags, pretensioners, etc.) in the passenger compartment. – Do not place any accessories, objects or even pets between the seatback, the door and the internal fittings. Do not cover the seatback with any items such as clothes or accessories. This may prevent the air bag from operating correctly or cause injury when the air bag is deployed. These air bags operate – No work or modification whatsoever may be carried out on the seat or internal through slits in the front fittings, except by qualified personnel from an approved dealer. seatbacks (door side): never insert any objects in these slits.1.18
  25. 25. Additional methods of restraintAll of the warnings below are given so that the air bag is not obstructed in anyway when it is inflated and also to prevent the risk of serious injuries caused 1by items which may be dislodged when the air bag inflates. The air bag is designed to complement the action of the seat belt. Both the air bags and seat belts are integral parts of the same protection system. It is therefore essential to wear seat belts at all times. If seat belts are not worn, the occupants are exposed to the risk of serious injury in the event of an accident. It may also increase the risk of minor superficial injuries occurring when the air bag is deployed, although such minor injuries are always possible with air bags. If the vehicle should overturn or suffer a rear impact, however severe, the pre- tensioners and air bags are not always triggered. Shocks to the underbody of the vehicle, e.g. from pavements, potholes or stones, can all trigger these systems. – No work or modification whatsoever may be carried out on any part of the air bag system (air bags, pretensioners, computer, wiring harness, etc.), except by qualified personnel from an approved dealer. Operating faults – To ensure that the system is in good working order and to avoid accidental trig- gering of the system which may cause injury, only qualified Network personnel Warning light 1 å will light up on the instrument panel when the ignition may work on the air bag system. is turned on and then go out after a few – As a safety precaution, have the air bag system checked if your vehicle has seconds. been involved in an accident, or is stolen or broken into.
