For safety reasons, carry 

out any adjustments when 

the vehicle is not being 

driven.

Nothing should be placed on the 

floor (area in front of driver) as such 

objects may slide under the pedal 

during braking manoeuvres, thus 

obstructing its use.

To tilt the seatback

Depending on the vehicle, activate con-

trol 1 or 2 and tilt the seatback to the 

desired position.

We would advise you not 

to recline the seatbacks too 

far to ensure that the effec-

tiveness of the seat belts is 

not reduced.

1.12

Always wear your seat belt when trav-

elling in your vehicle. You must also 

comply with the legislation of the par-

ticular country you are in.

SEAT BELTS 

(1/3)

1

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 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.

Make sure that the rear bench seat 

is locked in position correctly so that 

the rear seat belts will operate effi-

ciently. Refer to the information on 

the “Rear bench seat: functions” in 

Section 3.

Front seatbelt reminder 

warning light A

This lights up on the central display 

when the engine is started then, if the 

driver’s or front passenger’s seat belt (if 

this seat is occupied) is not fastened, it 

flashes and a beep sounds for around 

2 minutes.
Note: an object placed on the passen-

ger seat base may activate the warning 

light in some cases.

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.

SEAT BELTS 

(3/3)

Check that the rear seat 

belts are positioned and 

operating correctly each 

time the rear bench seat is 

moved.

Rear seat belts 8

The belts are locked, unlocked and 

adjusted in the same way as the front 

belts.

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 spe-

cial 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.

–  When positioning the rear bench seat, make sure that the seat belts and buck-

les are correctly positioned so that they can be used properly.

–  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 secured.

–  Make sure the seat belt catch is properly positioned (it should not be hidden 

away, crushed or flattened by people or objects).

METHODS OF RESTRAINT IN ADDITION TO THE FRONT SEAT BELTS 

(1/4)

1

–  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.

Depending on the vehicle, they will con-

sist of:
–  front seat belt inertia reel preten-

sioners;

–  chest-level load limiters;
– 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 airbags.

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.
With the ignition on, following a signif-

icant frontal impact and depending on 

the severity of the impact, the system 

may trigger the seat belt inertia reel 

pretensioner 1, which instantly retracts 

the seat belt.

1.16

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 side.
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.

1.17

METHODS OF RESTRAINT IN ADDITION TO THE FRONT SEAT BELTS 

(3/4)

Operating faults

This warning light 2 

å

 will light up 

on the instrument panel when the igni-

tion 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.

2

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.
