Skoda Fabia / Skoda Fabia Owners Manual / Safety / Seat belts / Inertia reel and belt pretensioners

Inertia reel

Each seat belt is equipped with an inertia reel.

The seat belt can move freely when it is pulled slowly. The seat belt is locked by the inertia reel when it is pulled suddenly.

The belts also lock under full braking, under acceleration, when driving downhill and when cornering.

WARNING

If the seat belt does not lock when it is pulled sharply, have it inspected immediately by a specialist garage.

Belt tensioners

Safety for the driver and front passenger wearing their seat belts is enhanced by the belt tensioners fitted to the inertia reels of the front three-point seat belts.

The three-point seat belts are automatically tensioned in the event of a frontal collision of a certain severity. The belt tensioners can also be deployed if the seat belts are not fastened.

The fastened three-point seat belts are automatically tensioned in the event of a collision with a certain severity.

Belt tensioners are not activated in the event of minor frontal collisions, side and rear-end collisions, in the case of a rollover and also not in accidents in which no major forces are produced from the front.

WARNING

  • Any work on the belt tensioner system including removal and installation of system components because of other repair work, must only be carried out by a specialist garage.
  • The protective function of the system is only adequate for a single accident.

    If the belt tensioners have been deployed, it is then necessary to replace the entire system.

Note

  • Smoke is generated when the belt tensioners are deployed. This is not an indication of a fire in the vehicle.
  • When disposing of the vehicle or parts of the belt tensioner system, it is important to comply with national legal requirements. ŠKODA service partners are familiar with these regulations and will be able to provide you with detailed information.
