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 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).

å
This warning light comes on
when the engine is started and then
goes out after approximately three sec-
onds.
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.
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.

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”
➥ 1.29). 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 be sustained.
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.

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.
1.40
SIDE PROTECTION DEVICES
Side air bags
These air bags are fitted to the front
seats and are activated at the sides of
the seats (door side) to protect the oc-
cupants in the event of a severe side
impact.
Curtain air bags
These are airbags 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.
Warning 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
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 air bags 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 air bag is deployed.
Depending on the vehicle, a mark-
