Seat Belt Inspection  
Regularly check the condition of your seat belts as follows:  
1Seat Belt Inspection  
Not checking or maintaining seat belts can  
result in serious injury or death if the seat  
belts do not work properly when needed.  
Pull each belt out fully, and look for frays, cuts, burns, and wear.  
Check that the latches work smoothly and the belts retract easily.  
u If a belt does not retract easily, cleaning the belt may correct the problem. Only  
use a mild soap and warm water. Do not use bleach or cleaning solvents. Make  
sure the belt is completely dry before allowing it to retract.  
Check your seat belts regularly and have  
any problem corrected as soon as possible.  
Any belt that is not in good condition or working properly will not provide proper  
protection and should be replaced as soon as possible.  
A belt that has been worn during a crash may not provide the same level of  
protection in a subsequent crash. Have your seat belts inspected by a dealer after  
any collision.
