automatically locks the doors when you 

are driving at approximately 6 mph  

(10 km/h) and over.

The door can be unlocked:

–  by pressing the central door unlock-

ing switch 1 

.

–  at a standstill, by opening a front 

door from inside the vehicle.

NB: if a door is opened or closed, it 

will automatically lock again when the 

vehicle reaches a speed of 6 mph 

(10 km/h).

RENAULT ANTI-INTRUDER DEVICE (RAID)

Driver’s responsibility
If you decide to keep the 

doors locked when you are 

driving, remember that it 

may be more difficult for those as-

sisting you to gain access to the 

passenger compartment in the 

event of an emergency.

2

Incorrectly adjusted or 

twisted seat belts may 

cause injuries in the event 

of an accident.

Use one seat belt per person, 

whether child or adult.
Even pregnant women should wear 

a seat belt. In this case, ensure that 

the lap belt is not exerting too much 

pressure on the abdomen, but do 

not allow any slack.

Before starting, first adjust your driv-

ing position, then ask all occupants 

to adjust their seat belts to ensure 

optimum protection.

Adjusting your driving 

position

–  Sit well back in your seat (having 

first removed your coat or jacket). 

This is essential to ensure your back 

is positioned correctly;

–  adjust the distance between the 

seat and the pedals. Your seat 

should be as far back as possible 

while still allowing you to depress 

the clutch pedal fully. The seatback 

should be adjusted so that your arms 

are slightly bent when you hold the 

steering wheel;

–  adjust the position of your head-

rest. For the maximum safety, your 

head must be as close as possible to 

the headrest;

–  adjust the height of the seat. This 

adjustment allows you to select the 

seat position which offers you the 

best possible view;

  adjust the position of the steering 

wheel.

Adjusting the seat belts

Sit with your back firmly against the 

seatback.
Shoulder strap 1 should be as close as 

possible to the base of the neck but not 

on it.
Lap belt 2 should be worn flat over the 

thighs and against the pelvis.
The belt should be worn so that it is 

as close as possible to your body, i.e.: 

avoid wearing heavy clothing or keep-

ing bulky objects under the belts, etc.

Locking

Unwind the belt slowly and smoothly 

and ensure that buckle 3 locks into 

catch 5 (check that it is locked by pull-

ing on buckle 3).
If the belt jams, allow it to return slightly 

before attempting to unwind it again.
If your seat belt is completely jammed, 

pull slowly, but firmly, so that just over 

3 cm unwinds. Allow it to return slightly 

before attempting to unwind it again.
If there is still a problem, contact an ap-

proved dealer.

1.26

The following information applies to the vehicle’s front and rear seat belts.

–  No modification may be made to the component parts of the originally fitted restraint system: seat belts, seats and 

their mountings. For special operations (e.g. fitting child seats), contact an authorised 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).

SEAT BELTS 

(4/4)

1.27

METHODS OF RESTRAINT IN ADDITION TO THE FRONT SEAT BELTS 

(1/4)

Depending on the vehicle, they are 

composed of:

–  seat belt inertia reel pretension-

ers;

–  driver’s lap belt pretensioners;
–  chest-level load limiter;
–  
airbags  driver and passenger 

front.

These systems are designed to act in-

dependently or together when the vehi-

cle is subjected to a frontal impact.
Depending on the severity of the 

impact, the system can trigger:
–  seat belt locking;
–  the seat belt inertia reel pretensioner 

(which engages to correct seat belt 

slack);

–  the lap belt pretensioners to hold the 

occupant in his seat;

–  the front airbag.

Pretensioners

The pretensioners hold the seat belt 

against the body, holding the occupant 

more securely against the seat, thus in-

creasing the seat belt’s efficiency.
In the event of a severe frontal impact 

and if the ignition is switched on, the 

system may engage the following de-

pending on the force of the impact:
–  seat belt inertia reel pretensioner 1 

which instantly retracts the seat belt;

–  the lap belt pretensioner 2 for the 

driver only.

–  Have the entire restraint 

system checked following 

an accident.

– No operation whatso-

ever is permitted on any part 

of the system (pretensioners, 

airbags, computers, wiring) and 

the system components must not 

be reused on any other vehicle, 

even if identical.

–  To avoid incorrect triggering of 

the system which may cause 

injury, only qualified personnel 

from an approved dealer may 

work on the pretensioner and air 

bag system.

–  The electric trigger system may 

only be tested by a specially 

trained technician using special 

equipment.

–  When the vehicle is scrapped, 

contact an approved dealer for 

disposal of the pretensioner and 

airbags gas generators.

Load limiter

Above a certain severity of impact, this 

mechanism is used to limit the force of 

the belt against the body so that it is at 

an acceptable level.

driver and passenger front 

Airbags

Fitted to the driver and passenger 

sides.
The presence of this equipment is indi-

cated by the word “Airbag” on the steer-

ing wheel, dashboard (in area airbag A

and, depending on the vehicle, a label 

on the lower section of the windscreen.
Each airbag system consists of:
–  an airbag and gas generator fitted on 

the steering wheel for the driver and 

in the dashboard for the passenger;

–  an electronic unit for system monitor-

ing which controls the gas generator 

electrical trigger system;

– a single 

å

 warning light on the 

instrument panel.

METHODS OF RESTRAINT IN ADDITION TO THE FRONT SEAT BELTS 

(2/4)

A

The airbag system uses py-

rotechnic principles. This 

explains why, when the 

airbag inflates, it will gener-

ate heat, produce smoke (this does 

not mean that a fire is about to start) 

and make a banging noise. In a situ-

ation where an airbag is required, it 

will inflate immediately and this may 

cause some minor, superficial graz-

ing to the skin or other problems.

1.29

METHODS OF RESTRAINT IN ADDITION TO THE FRONT SEAT BELTS 

(3/4)

Operating faults

This warning light 

å

 will light up on 

the instrument panel when the ignition 

is switched on and then go out after a 

few seconds.
If it does not light up when the ignition 

is switched on, or comes on when the 

engine is running, there is a fault in the 

system.
Contact your approved Dealer as soon 

as possible. Your protection will be re-

duced until this fault is rectified.

Operation
This system is only operational when 

the ignition is switched on.
In a severe frontal impact, the airbags 

inflate rapidly, cushioning the impact 

of the driver's head and chest against 

the steering wheel and of the front pas-

senger against the dashboard. The air-

bags then deflate immediately so that 

the passengers are not in any way hin-

dered from leaving the vehicle.

1.30

METHODS OF RESTRAINT IN ADDITION TO THE FRONT SEAT BELTS 

(4/4)

Warnings concerning the driver’s airbag

– 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 airbag

–  Do not attach or glue any objects (badge, logo, clock, telephone holder, etc.) to the dashboard on or near the airbag.
–  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, IE. THE PASSENGER AIR BAG, ARE DEACTIVATED.

(refer to the information on “Child safety: deactivating/activating the front passenger airbag” in Section 1)

All of the warnings below are given so that the airbag is not obstructed in any way when it is inflated and also to prevent 

the risk of serious injuries caused by items which may be dislodged when it inflates.

1.31

METHODS OF RESTRAINT IN ADDITION TO THE REAR SIDE SEAT BELTS

Force limiter

Above a certain severity of impact, this 

mechanism is used to limit the force of 

the belt against the body so that it is at 

an acceptable level.

–  Have the entire restraint 

system checked following 

an accident.

– No operation whatsoever 

is permitted on any part of the 

system (air bags, electronic con-

trol units, wiring) and the system 

components must not be reused 

on any other vehicle, even if iden-

tical.

– Only qualified personnel from 

our Network may work on the air 

bags; otherwise the system may 

trigger accidentally and cause 

injury.

1.32

Side Airbags

An airbag can be fitted to each front 

seat and the rear side seats, which are 

deployed on the side of the seat (door 

side) to protect the occupants in the 

case of a severe side impact.

Curtain Airbags

These are airbag fitted along the sides 

of the vehicle in the ceiling which trigger 

along the front and rear door side win-

dows to protect the passengers in case 

of a severe side impact.

SIDE PROTECTION DEVICES

Warning relating to the side airbag 
– Fitting seat covers: seats equipped with an airbag require covers spe-

cifically designed for your vehicle. Contact an approved Dealer to find out 

if these covers are available. The use of any covers other than those de-

signed for your vehicle (and including those designed for another vehicle) may 

affect the operation of the airbags and reduce your protection.

–  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 airbag is deployed.

–  No work or modification whatsoever may be carried out on the seat or internal 

fittings, except by qualified personnel from an approved Dealer.

Depending on the vehicle, a mark-

ing on the windscreen informs you 

of the presence of additional means 

of restraint (air bags, pretensioners, 

etc.) in the passenger compartment.

1.33

ADDITIONAL METHODS OF RESTRAINT

The airbag 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 airbag is deployed, although such minor injuries are always possible 

with air bags.
If the vehicle should overturn or in the event of a rear impact, however severe, 

the pretensioners and airbags are not always triggered. Impacts to the underside 

of the vehicle, e.g. from pavements, potholes or stones, can all trigger these sys-

tems.
–  No work or modification whatsoever may be carried out on any part of the 

airbag system (airbags, pretensioners, computer, wiring harness, etc.), except 

by qualified Network personnel.

–  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 

may work on the airbag system.

–  As a safety precaution, have the airbag system checked if your vehicle has 

been involved in an accident, or is stolen or broken into.

–  When selling or lending the vehicle, inform the user of these points and hand 

over this handbook with the vehicle.

–  When scrapping your vehicle, contact your approved Dealer for disposal of the 

gas generator(s).

All of the warnings below are given so that the airbag is not obstructed in any 

way when it is inflated and also to prevent the risk of serious injuries caused 

by items which may be dislodged when it inflates.

Operating faults

å

  This warning light comes on 

when the engine is started and then 

goes out after approximately three se-

conds.
If it does not come on when the ignition 

is switched on or if it stays on, there is a 

fault in the system.
Contact your approved Dealer as soon 

as possible.
Your protection will be reduced until this 

fault is rectified.
