SEAT BELTS (5/5)
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.
- When the rear bench seat is being put back, make sure that the seat belts and buckles 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 ob-
jects).

This warning light comes on
when the engine is started and then

METHODS OF RESTRAINT IN ADDITION TO THE FRONT SEAT BELTS (6/6)
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.
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).
- Do not sit too close to the steering wheel when driving: sit with your arms slightly bent (see “Adjusting your driving position”
➥ 1.23). This will allow sufficient space for the airbag 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.

SIDE PROTECTION DEVICES
Side Airbag
This airbag may be fitted to each of the
front seats and is activated at the sides
of the seats (door side) to protect the
occupants in the event of a severe side
impact.
Curtain Airbag
This is an airbag fitted (depending on
the vehicle) along the upper sides of
the vehicle - they inflate along the front
and rear door side windows to protect
the passengers in the event of a severe
side impact.
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
designed for your vehicle (including those designed for another vehicle) may
affect the operation of the airbag 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.
-
This airbag operates through slits in the front seatbacks (door side): never
insert any objects in these slits.
1.35
ADDITIONAL METHODS OF RESTRAINT
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.
The airbag is designed to complement the action of the seat belt. Both the airbag and the seat belt 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 oc-
cupants are exposed to the risk of serious injury in the event of an accident. It may also increase the risk of minor su-
perficial injuries occurring when the airbag is deployed, although such minor injuries are always possible with airbags.
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 systems.
- 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 triggering 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).
