Volkswagen Polo Owners Manual: Service and disposal of belt tensioners

Volkswagen Polo Owners Manual / Sitting correctly and safely / Seat belts / Service and disposal of belt tensioners

First read and observe the introductory information and safety warnings

Seat belts may become damaged during any work on the belt tensioners or while removing or refitting any vehicle parts in conjunction with any other repair work. This damage will not always be noticeable. The consequence may be that the belt tensioners could function incorrectly, or not function at all, in the event of an accident.

Regulations must be observed to ensure that the effectiveness of the belt tensioner is not reduced and that removed parts do not cause any injuries or environmental pollution. Qualified workshops are familiar with these requirements.

WARNING

The risk of severe or fatal injuries may be increased if the seat belts, automatic belt retractors and belt tensioners are not used correctly, or if they are repaired by a non-professional. As a result, the belt tensioners may not be triggered when they should, or they may be triggered unexpectedly.

The airbag modules and belt tensioners may contain perchlorate. Please comply with legislation regarding disposal.
