Seat Ibiza: Belt tension devices

Seat Ibiza Owners Manual

Function of the belt tension device

During a frontal collision, the seat belts on the front seats are retracted automatically. The seat belts for the front occupants are equipped with belt tension devices. Sensors will trigger the belt tension devices during severe head-on, lateral and rear collisions only if the seat belt is being worn. This retracts and tightens the seat belts, reducing the forward motion of the occupants. The belt tension device can be triggered only once. The belt tension devices will not be triggered in the event of a light frontal, side or rear collision, if the vehicle overturns, or in situations where no large forces act on the front, side or rear of the vehicle.


Note

• If the belt tension devices are triggered, a fine dust is produced. This is normal and is no indication that there was a fire in the vehicle.

• The relevant safety requirements must be observed when the vehicle or components of the system are scrapped. A qualified workshop is familiar with these regulations and will be pleased to pass on the information to you.

Service and disposal of belt tension devices

The belt tension devices are components of the seat belts that are installed in the seats of your vehicle. If you work on the belt tension devices or remove and install parts of the system when performing other repair work, the seat belt may be damaged. The consequence may be that, in the event of an accident, the belt tension devices function incorrectly or not at all.

So that the effectiveness of the belt tension device is not reduced and that removed parts do not cause any injuries or environmental pollution, regulations, which are known to the qualified workshops, must be observed.

WARNING

• If repairs are not carried out by a professional, or if the belt tension devices are used incorrectly, the risk of severe or fatal injuries increases. The belt tension devices may fail to trigger or may trigger in the wrong circumstances.

• Never attempt to repair, adjust, remove or install parts of the belt tension devices or seat belts.

• The belt tension device and seat belt including its automatic retractor cannot be repaired.

• Any work on the belt tension devices and seat belts, including the removal and refitting of system parts in conjunction with other repair work, must be performed by a qualified workshop only.

• The belt tension devices will only provide protection for one accident and must be changed it they have been activated.
