2.13. Seat belts

It is necessary to fasten seat belts always.

To fasten a belt, it is necessary to extend smoothly it from the coil and to implant a uvula into the lock.
The lower points of fastening of belts of front seats are located on seats and, therefore, move at adjustment of provision of seats back and forth.

Seat belts of front seats are supplied by automatic natyazhitel. These natyazhitel work at strong head-on collisions, limiting movement of a body at blow. At weak head-on collisions, at side and back blows, at oprokidyvaniye they do not work.

Seat belts, natyazhitel and other parts of system of passive safety are subject to survey after each collision. Saab recommends replacement of all seat belts assembled working at collision.

At operation of an inflatable safety cushion both belts of front seats need to be replaced.
