Replacing Safety Belt System Parts after a Crash

Cadillac CTS / Cadillac CTS Owners Manual / Seats and Restraints / Safety Belts / Replacing Safety Belt System Parts after a Crash

WARNING!
A crash can damage the safety belt system in the vehicle.

A damaged safety belt system may not properly protect the person using it, resulting in serious injury or even death in a crash. To help make sure the safety belt systems are working properly after a crash, have them inspected and any necessary replacements made as soon as possible.

After a minor crash, replacement of safety belts may not be necessary.

But the safety belt assemblies that were used during any crash may have been stressed or damaged.

See your dealer to have the safety belt assemblies inspected or replaced.

New parts and repairs may be necessary even if the safety belt system was not being used at the time of the crash.

Have the safety belt pretensioners checked if the vehicle has been in a crash, or if the airbag readiness light stays on after you start the vehicle or while you are driving. See Airbag Readiness Light.
