SEAT BELTS (6/6)
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.), as 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 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 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).

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.
- You must not remove the steering wheel (such work must only be performed by trained personnel from our Network).
- Do not sit too close to the steering wheel: adopt a driving position whereby your arms are slightly folded ➥ 1.15. This will
allow sufficient space for the air bag to deploy correctly and to 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, all 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
RESTRAINT SYSTEMS IN ADDITION TO THE FRONT PASSENGER SEATBELT ARE DEACTIVATED ➥ 1.52.

SIDE PROTECTION DEVICES
Depending on the vehicle, this is com-
posed of:
Side Airbags
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.

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.

of the presence of additional means
of restraint (airbags, pretensioners
etc.) in the passenger compartment.
1.32
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, 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 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 airbags.
If the vehicle should overturn or suffer a rear impact, however severe, the preten-
sioners and airbags are not always triggered. Shocks to the underbody of the ve-
hicle, from pavements, potholes, stones etc. can all trigger these systems.
- No work or modification whatsoever may be carried out on any part of the
driver or passenger airbag system (airbag, computer, wiring harness etc.),
