Have the entire restraintsystem checked followingan accident. No operation whatsoeveris permitted on any part of thesystem (pretensioners, airbags,computers, wiring) and thesystem components must not bere-used on any other vehicle,even if identical. To avoid premature triggering ofthe system which may causeinjury, only qualified RENAULTNetwork personnel may work onthe pretensioner and airbagsystem. Testing of the electric triggersystem may only be carried outby a specially trained technicianusing special equipment. When the vehicle is scrapped,contact your RENAULT Dealerfor disposal of the pretensionerand airbag gas generators.nu654~6_fra_Gl.qxd 26/09/02 l5:48 Page l.l6nu654-6 - CLIO II C:\Documentum\Checkout\nu654-6_eng_T1.WIN 4/11/2002 13:44 - page 241.16METHODS OF RESTRAINT IN ADDITION TO THE FRONT SEAT BELT (continued)Force limiterAbove a certain severity of impact,this mechanism is used to limit theforce of the belt against the body sothat it is at an acceptable level.Warning relating to theservice life of airbagsand pretensionersPyrotechnic systems forairbags and pretensioners have alimited service life: refer to theservicing booklet for yourvehicle for the replacementfrequency.Driver and passenger airbagsThese are fitted to both the driverand the front passenger seats.An Airbag marking on thesteering wheel and dashboard and alabel in the lower section of thewindscreen inform you of thepresence of additional means ofrestraint (airbags, pretensioners,etc.) in the passenger compartment.Each airbag system consists of:- an airbag and its two gasgenerators (for the small orlarge-volume bag depending onthe severity of the frontal impact)mounted on the steering wheel forthe driver and in the dashboard forthe passenger;- a computer for both systems,which includes the impactdetector and the monitorcontrolling the electrical triggersystem for each of the gasgenerators;- A single warning light onthe instrument panel.The air bag system uses theprinciples of pyrotechnics. Thisexplains why, when the air baginflates, it will generate heat,produce smoke (this does not meanthat a fire is about to start) andmake a noise upon detonation. In asituation where an air bag isrequired, it must inflate immediatelyand this may cause some minor,superficial grazing to the skin.12nu654~6_fra_Gl.qxd 26/09/02 l5:48 Page l.l7nu654-6 - CLIO II C:\Documentum\Checkout\nu654-6_eng_T1.WIN 4/11/2002 13:44 - page 251.17METHODS OF RESTRAINT IN ADDITION TO THE FRONT SEAT BELT (continued)OperationThe system waits a few secondsafter the ignition has been switchedon before being operational.If a severe frontal impact occurs,the airbag(s) inflate(s) rapidly,cushioning the impact of thedriver's head and chest against thesteering wheel and the frontpassenger's head against thedashboard. The airbag(s) thendeflate(s) immediately so that thepassengers are not impeded in anyway when they get out of thevehicle.The passenger airbag system islinked to a front passenger airbagdeactivation warning light 2 on theinstrument panel. This warninglight is linked to the passengerairbag deactivation system throughthe ignition key.It lights up to indicate that thepassenger airbag will not be inflatedin the event of an impact (refer tothe section on Deactivating the frontpassenger airbag).Operational incidentsWarning light 1 lights up on theinstrument panel when the ignitionis turned on and then goes out aftera few seconds.If it does not light up when theignition is turned on, there is a faultin the system.If it lights up while you are driving,stop at once and switch off theignition.If it is still lit up after the ignitionhas been switched on again, there isa fault in the system. In this case, arear-facing child seat MUST NOT befitted to the front passenger seat.We do not recommend fitting anyother kind of passenger seat device.In both cases, consult yourRENAULT Dealer as soon aspossible.nu654~6_fra_Gl.qxd 26/09/02 l5:48 Page l.l8nu654-6 - CLIO II C:\Documentum\Checkout\nu654-6_eng_T1.WIN 4/11/2002 13:44 - page 261.18METHODS OF RESTRAINT IN ADDITION TO THE FRONT SEAT BELT (continued)All the warnings beloware given so that the airbag is not obstructed in any way when it is inflated and also to prevent therisk of serious injuries caused by items which may be dislodged when the airbag inflates.The airbag is designed to complement the action of the seat belt. Both the airbags and seat belts are integral partsof the same protection system. It is therefore essential to wear the seat belt at all times. If the seat belt is not worn,it exposes the occupants to the risk of serious injury in the event of an accident. It may also increase the risk ofminor, superficial injuries occurring when the airbag is deployed, although such minor injuries are alwayspossible with airbags.The airbag does not offer protection against minor and moderately serious frontal impacts, side or rear impacts or if thevehicle turns over.Airbags for driver and passenger No work or modification whatsoever may be performed on the entire airbag system for the driver and passenger(computer, wiring, etc.) except by qualified RENAULT network personnel. To ensure that the system is in good working order and to avoid incorrect triggering of the system which may causeinjury, only qualified RENAULT network personnel may work on the airbag system. As a safety precaution, have the airbag system checked if your vehicle has been involved in an accident, is stolen orbroken into. When selling or lending the vehicle, inform the user of these points and hand over this handbook with the vehicle. When scrapping your vehicle, contact your RENAULT Dealer for disposal of the gas generator(s).1nu654~6_fra_Gl.qxd 26/09/02 l5:48 Page l.l9nu654-6 - CLIO II C:\Documentum\Checkout\nu654-6_eng_T1.WIN 4/11/2002 13:45 - page 271.19METHODS OF RESTRAINT IN ADDITION TO THE FRONT SEAT BELT (continued)All the warnings given below aredesigned to ensure that the airbagcan inflate correctly and to preventserious injuries caused by itemswhich may be dislodged when theairbag inflates.Warnings concerning the drivers airbag Do not adjust either the steering wheel or the airbag cushion. Do not cover the airbag cushion. Do not attach any objects (badge, logo, clock, telephone holder, etc.) to theairbag cushion. The steering wheel must not be removed (except by qualified personnelfrom the RENAULT network). Do not sit too close to the steering wheel. If you sit with your arms slightlybent (see the information on Adjusting your driving position in Section 1),you will ensure that there is sufficient space for the airbag to inflateproperly and to be fully effective.Warnings concerning the passenger airbag: location 1 Do not attach or glue any objects (badges, logo, clock, telephone holder,etc.) onto the front passenger side of the dashboard. Nothing should be placed between the dashboard and the passenger (pet,umbrella, walking stick, parcels, etc.). The passenger must not put his or her feet on the dashboard or seat as thereis a risk that serious injuries may be sustained. As a general rule, keep allparts of the body (knees, hands, head, etc.) well away from the dashboard. You should reactivate the airbag as soon as you remove the child seat fromthe front passenger seat to ensure the protection of the front passenger inthe event of an impact.IT IS FORBIDDEN TO FIT A REAR-FACING CHILD SEAT ON THE FRONTPASSENGER SEAT WHILE THE RESTRAINING METHODS ADDITIONALTO THE PASSENGER SEAT BELT ARE NOT DEACTIVATED.(Refer to the information on Deactivationof front passenger airbags in Section 1).nu654~6_fra_Gl.qxd 26/09/02 l5:48 Page l.20nu654-6 - CLIO II C:\Documentum\Checkout\nu654-6_eng_T1.WIN 4/11/2002 13:45 - page 281.20METHODS OF RESTRAINT IN ADDITION TO THE FRONT SEAT BELT (continued)Side airbagsThese airbags may be fitted to thefront seats and are deployed at thesides of the seats (door side) toprotect the occupants in the event ofa severe side impact.The slits on the frontseatbacks (door side) andthe gap between the rearbench seatback and theinterior fittings form the triggerarea for the airbag, so it isforbidden to place any objectsthere.Warnings concerning theside airbag Fitting seat covers: Seatsequipped with an airbagrequire special coversspecifically designed for yourvehicle. Consult your RENAULTDealer to see if appropriatecovers are available fromRENAULToutlets. The use of anycovers other than those designedfor your vehicle (and includingthose designed for anothervehicle) may affect the operationof these airbags and reduce yourprotection. Do not place any accessories,objects or pets between theseatback and the door. This mayprevent the airbag fromoperatingcorrectly or cause injury if theairbag is deployed.

Do not use any devices which give any play in the belts (clothes pegs, clips for example). Never wear the shoulder strap under your arm or behind your back. Never use the same belt for more than one person and never hold a baby or child on your knees with the seatbelt around them. The seat belt should never be twisted. Following a serious accident, replace all the belts which were in use at the time. Likewise, have the beltsreplaced if they show any signs of wear. When refitting the rear bench seat, check that the seat belts are repositioned correctly, to enable them to be usedproperly.

Avoid wearing bulky clothing and do not place any objects between the child and the restraint system. The seat belt on the vehicle must be taut so that the childs seat is held in position securely. Check the tensionregularly. Never wear the belt under the arm or behind the back. The harness or belt should be taut and fitted to suit the childs stature. Never allow your child to stand or kneel on the seat when the vehicle is moving. Check that the child is in the correct position for the entire journey, particularly when he or she is asleep. Use the seat belts to hold the seat in position, even if it is not occupied. Otherwise, if an accident occurs, it maybecome dislodged and pose a risk to other vehicle occupants. Following a serious accident, have an inspection made of the seat belts and restraint systems fitted at the time. Never leave a child unsupervised in a vehicle, even if he or she is in a child seat. Activate the rear door locks (if your vehicle is equipped with these). Make sure the child does not get out of the vehicle at the side where there is traffic.
