Safety Belt Pretensioners

This vehicle has safety belt pretensioners for front outboard occupants. Although the safety belt pretensioners cannot be seen, they are part of the safety belt assembly. They can help tighten the safety belts during the early stages of a moderate to severe frontal and near frontal crash and will deploy in side, rear and rollover events if the threshold conditions for pretensioner activation are met.

Pretensioners work only once.

If the pretensioners activate in a crash, they will need to be replaced, and probably other new parts for the vehicle's safety belt system.

See Replacing Safety Belt System Parts after a Crash.
