ADDITIONAL METHODS OF RESTRAINT
All of the warnings below are given so that the air bag 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 the air bag inflates.
The air bag 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 occu-
pants are exposed to the risk of serious injury in the event of an accident. It may also increase the risk of minor super-
ficial injuries occurring when the air bag is deployed, although such minor injuries are always possible with air bags.
If the vehicle should overturn or suffer a rear impact, however severe, the pretensioners and air bags are not always triggered.
Shocks to the underbody 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 air bag system (air bags, pretensioners, compu-
ter, wiring harness, etc.), except by qualified personnel from an approved dealer.
- 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 air bag system.
- As a safety precaution, have the air bag 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 driver’s handbook with the vehicle.
- When scrapping your vehicle, contact your approved dealer for disposal of the gas generator(s).
