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 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).

This warning light will light up

a few seconds.
If it does not light up when the ignition

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: adopt a driving position whereby your arms are slightly folded ➥ 1.41. 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.
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 ➥ 1.69.
Warnings concerning the anti-submarining airbag
Do not let a child under the age of 12 sit in this seat. When triggered, the anti-submarining airbag may project objects left on
the seat base with a great deal of force.

accidentally and cause injury.
1.52
SIDE PROTECTION DEVICES
Side Airbags
This airbag is fitted to the front seats,
activated at the sides of the seats (door
side) to protect the occupants 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 airbags 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 objects such as
clothes or accessories. This may prevent the airbag 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.
- The space between the seatback of the rear bench seat and the trim is the
area of airbag operation: no objects must be placed here.
Depending on the vehicle, a mark-
ing on the windscreen informs you
of the presence of additional means
of restraint (airbags, pretensioners,
etc.) in the passenger compartment.
1.53
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 suffer a rear impact, however severe, the pretensioners and airbags are not always triggered.
Shocks to the underbody of the vehicle, from pavements, potholes, stones etc. can all trigger these systems.
- Work and modifications on the complete airbag system (airbags, pretensioners, ECU, wiring harness, etc.), are strictly pro-
hibited (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 driver’s handbook with the vehicle.
- When scrapping your vehicle, contact your approved dealer for disposal of the gas generator(s).
