    SEAT BELTSThe following information applies to both the vehicle's front and rear seat belts.

    No adjustments may be made to the original component parts of the restraint system (belts, seats and theirmountings).For special applications (e.g. fitting child seats) contact your RENAULT Dealer.

    Do not use devices which give any slack in the belts (e.g. clothes pegs, clips, etc.): a seat belt which is worn too looselyrisks causing injury in the event of an accident.

    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 lap with your seat beltaround them.

    The belt should never be twisted.

    Seat belts should be replaced after a serious accident. Likewise, replace your seat belts as soon as they show any signsof wear.

    When refitting the rear bench seat, take care that the seat belts are correctly positioned so that they can be usedproperly.

    If necessary, readjust the position and tightness of the belt.

    Make sure that the tongue is inserted into the appropriate buckle.

    ADDITIONAL EQUIPMENT TO THE FRONT SEAT BELTThese are: buckle pretensioners, lap pretensioners (5-door

    version only), chest force limiters, front passenger and driver's

    airbags, anti-submarining airbags (3-door

    version only).

    These systems are designed to actindependently or together when thevehicle is subjected to a frontalimpact.Depending on the force of the impactthe system may activate:- seat belt locking;- the buckle pretensioner (which is

    triggered to take up the seat beltplay);

    - the lap belt pretensioner or theanti-submarining airbag to keep theoccupant in their seat, the front lowvolume front airbag and forcelimiters;

    - the large volume front airbag.

    PretensionersWith the ignition switched on, ifthere is a severe frontal impact anddepending on the severity of theimpact, the system may activate:- the piston 1 which immediately

    retracts the seat belt;- piston 2 on the front seats (5-door

    version),or

    - the anti-submarining airbag (3-doorversion only).

    The pretensioners hold the seat beltagainst the occupant's body, holdingthe occupant more securely againstthe seat, thus increasing the seatbelt's efficiency.

    Have the entire restraintsystem checked followingan accident.

    No operation whatsoever ispermitted on any part of thesystem (pretensioners, airbags,computers, wiring) and thesystem components must not bereused on any other vehicle, evenif 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 out bya specially trained technicianusing special equipment.

    When the vehicle is scrapped,contact your RENAULT Dealer fordisposal of the pretensioner andairbag gas generators.

    ADDITIONAL EQUIPMENT 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.

    Driver and passenger airbagsAn airbag is fitted for both the driverand the front passenger seats.The presence of this equipment isindicated by the word Airbag on thesteering wheel and the dashboard(airbag zone A) and a label on thebase of the windscreen.Each airbag system consists of:- an airbag and gas generator fitted

    to the steering wheel for the driverand in the dashboard for the frontpassenger;

    - an intelligent computer for bothsystems, which includes animpact sensor and a monitorcontrolling the electrical triggersystem for the gas generator;

    - one single warning light onthe instrument panel;

    - an advanced front sensorcompletes the system. The airbag system uses the

    principles of pyrotechnics. Thisexplains why, when the airbaginflates, 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 airbag isrequired, it will inflateimmediately and this may causesome minor, superficial grazing tothe skin.

    OperationThis system is only operationalwhen the ignition is switched on.If a severe frontal impact occurs, theairbags inflate rapidly, cushioningthe impact of the driver's head andchest against the steering wheel andthe front passenger's head againstthe dashboard. The airbags thendeflate immediately so that thepassengers are not impeded in anyway when leaving the vehicle.

    Special feature of the frontairbagDepending on the severity ofimpact, the front airbag has twodeployment volumes and anintegral ventilation system toprevent burns from the exhaustgases:- small volume airbag, this is the

    first stage of operation;- large volume airbag, the airbag

    seams rip so that a larger volumeof gas is released into the bag (forthe most severe impacts).

    ADDITIONAL EQUIPMENT TO THE FRONT SEAT BELT (continued)All the following warnings are given so that the airbag is not obstructed in any way when it is inflated and also to preventthe risk of serious injuries caused by items which may be dislodged when the airbag inflates.

    Warnings concerning the drivers airbag Do not modify the steering wheel or the cushion. Do not cover the steering wheel cushion.

    Do not attach any objects (badge, logo, clock, telephone holder, etc.) to the steering wheel cushion. The steering wheel must not be removed (except by qualified personnel from the RENAULT network). When driving, do not sit too close to the steering wheel. Sit with your arms slightly bent (see information on

    Adjusting your driving position in Section 1). This will allow sufficient space for the airbag to inflate properly andbe fully effective.

    Warnings concerning the passenger airbag Do not attach or glue any objects (pins, logo, clock, telephone holder, etc.) to the dashboard in the airbag zone. Nothing should be placed between the dashboard and the passenger (a pet, umbrella, walking stick, parcels, etc.). The passenger must not put his or her feet on the dashboard or seat as there is a risk that serious injuries may occur. As

    a general rule, keep all parts of the body (knees, hands, head, etc.) well away from the dashboard. The passenger airbags should be reactivated as soon as the child seat is removed, to ensure the protection of the front

    passenger in the event of an impact.

    A REAR-FACING CHILD/BABY SEAT MUST NOT BE FITTED TO THE FRONT PASSENGER SEAT UNLESS THEADDITIONAL RESTRAINT SYSTEMS, I.E. THE PASSENGER AIRBAG, ARE DEACTIVATED. (refer to Deactivationof front passenger airbags in Section 1).

    Warnings concerning the anti-submarining airbagWhen triggered, the anti-submarining airbag could project objects left on the seat cushion with some force.

    take up the slack in the seat belt.

    Rear seat belt pretensionersThis system is only operationalwhen the ignition is switched on.If the vehicle is subjected to a severefrontal impact, a device retracts theseat belt, pulling the seat belt tightagainst the occupant's body andthereby improving its efficiency.

    SIDE RESTRAINT SYSTEMSSide airbagsThese are airbags fitted to each frontseat, and the rear side seats in somecountries, which are triggered onthe side of the seat (door side) toprotect the passengers from severeside impacts.

    The sides of the frontseatbacks (door side) andthe gap between the rearbench seatback and the

    interior fittings form the triggerzone for the airbag, so it isforbidden to place any objectsthere.

    Curtain airbagsThese are airbags fitted along thetop of the side of the vehicle andwhich are triggered along the frontand rear side windows to protectthe passengers in the event of asevere side impact.

    A marking on the windscreeninforms you of the presence ofadditional means of restraint(airbags, pretensioners, etc.) inthe passenger compartment.

    Warnings concerning theside airbag Fitting seat covers: seats

    equipped with an airbagrequire special coversspecifically designed for yourvehicle. Contact your RENAULTDealer to find out if these coversmay be purchased fromRENAULT outlets. The use ofany covers other than thosedesigned for your vehicle (andincluding those designed foranother vehicle) may affect theoperation of the airbags andreduce your protection.

    Do not place any accessories,objects or even pets between theseatback, the door and theinternal fittings. This mayprevent the airbag fromoperating correctly or causeinjury as the airbag is deployed.

    No work or modificationwhatsoever may be carried outon the internal fittings, except byqualified RENAULT Networkpersonnel.

    ADDITIONAL METHODS OF RESTRAINTAll the warnings below are given so that, if the airbag is activated, it is not obstructed in any way 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. The airbags and seat belts are integral parts ofthe same protection system. It is therefore essential to wear the seat belt at all times. If seat belts are not worn, theoccupants of the vehicle are exposed to the risk of serious injury in the event of an accident. The risk of minorsuperficial injuries occurring when the airbag is deployed may also increase, although such minor injuries arealways possible with airbags.

    If the vehicle should overturn or in the event of a rear impact, however severe, the pretensioners and airbags are notalways triggered. These systems may, however, be triggered by impacts to the vehicle underbody, e.g. from pavements,potholes, stones, etc.

    It is strictly forbidden to work on or modify any part of the airbag system (computer, wiring, etc.); such work mustonly be undertaken by qualified RENAULT Network personnel.

    To ensure that the system is in good working order and to avoid accidental 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).

    CHILD SAFETY

    Remember that a collision at30 mph (50 km/h) is the same asfalling from a height of 10 metres. Inother words, transporting a childwithout a restraint is the equivalentof allowing him or her to play on athird-floor balcony which does nothave any railings.

    In all countries there are regulationsgoverning the use of restraintsystems for children and babies.In Europe children under 10 yearsof age(1) must be seated in anapproved safety device which issuitable for the weight and size ofthe child.The driver is responsible forensuring that this equipment isused correctly.Child restraints for which typeapproval was obtained after January1992 offer a level of safety muchgreater than for restraints with typeapproval before that date.It is therefore advisable to select achild restraint that complies withEuropean regulation ECE 44.Restraints that comply with thislegislation must be marked with anorange label bearing the letter Efollowed by a number (whichstands for the country where it istype approved) and the year inwhich the type approval wasgranted.

    (1) You must always observe the laws ofthe country in which you aretravelling. They may be different tothe guidelines in this handbook.

    Under no circumstancesshould babies or childrenbe allowed to travel sittingon the lap of another

    passenger in the vehicle.If a head-on impact occurs at30 mph (50 km/h) a child weighing30 kg will be transformed into amissile equivalent to one tonne:you will find it impossible to holdthe child, even if you yourself arewearing a belt.It is particularly dangerous to putthe belt round your child when heor she is sitting on your lap. Neveruse the belt for more than oneperson at the same time.

    In accordance with safetylegislation, the tables on thefollowing pages provideinformation about the types of childseat which may be fitted to each ofthe vehicle seats.

    Before installing a child seat in thefront seat (if fitting is permitted)If the passenger seat is fitted withone, carry out the followingadjustments:- move the passenger seat as far

    back as possible,- set the seatback to its fully upright

    position,- raise the seat base as far as

    possible,- raise the headrest to its highest

    setting,- move the seat belt height control

    to the low position.Refer to the Child safety equipmentbooklet available from theRENAULT Network to choose theseat most suited to your child andrecommended for your vehicle.

    CHILD SAFETY (continued)The right choiceThe safety of your children is alsoyour responsibility.To ensure that your child has themaximum possible protection, werecommend that you use seatsapproved by the RENAULTNetwork.It is preferable to use an Isofix seat ifyour vehicle is fitted with an Isofixsystem (refer to Isofix child seatfitting system in Section 1).Restraint systems for all thecategories are available. Thesesystems have been developed inconsultation with the manufacturersand have been tested in RENAULTvehicles.Contact your RENAULT Dealer andask him to help you install it.

    Category 0 and 0+ (from 0 to13 kg)A child's neck is very susceptible toinjury up to the age of two. In afront-facing seat there is a risk thatthe child will sustain neck injuries inthe event of a frontal impact.RENAULT therefore recommends arear-facing seat with a harness thatgives all-round protection (figure 1).

    Category 1 (from 9 to 18 kg)Between the ages of 2 and 4, a child'spelvis is not fully developed.Restraints using the vehicle'sthree-point belts are not adequateand there is a risk that the child willsustain abdominal injuries in theevent of a frontal impact. It istherefore advisable to use rear-facingseats (figure 1), bucket-type seats(figure 2) or seats with harnesses.Place the headrest in the raisedposition so you can press the childseat seatback firmly against thevehicle seatback.

    To avoid any risk to your safety, we recommend that you useRENAULT approved accessories because they are suitable for yourvehicle and are the only accessories for which RENAULT willprovide a warranty.

    CHILD SAFETY (continued)

    Category 2 (15 to 25 kg) andcategory 3 (22 to 36 kg)To restrain the pelvis of children upto 10 years of age, it is preferable touse a three-point seat belt as well aschild seats. This is a booster seat(figure 3) with belt guides to ensurethat the belt will be worn flat overthe child's thighs.

    A booster seat with aheight-adjustable seatback and abelt guide are recommended as thiswill allow the belt to be worn asclose to the base of your neck aspossible but not on it.Place the headrest in the raisedposition to allow you to press theseatback of the child seat firmlyagainst the vehicle seatback.If a booster seat without a seatbackis used, the vehicle's headrest willhave to be adjusted to suit thechild's stature; the upper edge of theheadrest must be at the same heightas the top of the child's head andshould never be lower than in linewith the child's eyes.

    The standard classifies childrestraints in five categories:Category 0: 0 to 10 kgCategory 0: 0 to 13 kgCategory 1: 9 to 18 kgCategory 2: 15 to 25 kgCategory 3: 22 to 36 kg
