    No modification may be made to the original restraint system components (belts and 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.

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

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

    METHODS OF RESTRAINT IN ADDITION TO THE FRONT SEAT BELTThese are: buckle pretensioners, chest load limiters, front passenger and driver's

    airbags, anti-submarining airbags.

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

    triggered to take up the seat beltplay);

    - the anti-submarining airbag tokeep the occupant in their seat, thefront low volume airbag and theload limiters;

    - 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;- the anti-submarining airbag.The pretensioners hold the seat beltagainst the body, holding theoccupant more securely against theseat, thus increasing the seat belt'sefficiency.

    Have the entire restraintsystem checked after anaccident.

    No operation whatsoever ispermitted on any part of thesystem (pretensioners, airbags,computers, wiring) and thesystem components must not bereused 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.

    METHODS OF RESTRAINT IN ADDITION TO THE FRONT SEAT BELT (continued)Load 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

    on the steering wheel for thedriver and in the dashboard for thefront passenger;

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

    - A single warning light onthe instrument panel.

    The airbag system uses theprinciples 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 in getting out of 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

    METHODS OF RESTRAINT IN ADDITION 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 deploy correctly 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 proximity of the

    airbag housing. 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 there is a risk that serious injuries may be

    sustained. As a general rule, keep all parts of your 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 SEAT MUST NOT BE FITTED TO THE FRONT PASSENGER SEAT UNLESS THEMETHODS OF RESTRAINT IN ADDITION TO THE PASSENGER SEAT BELT HAVE BEEN DEACTIVATED. (Refer tothe information on Front Passenger Airbag Deactivation in Section 1).

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

    Force limiter.

    These systems are designed to actindependently or together when thevehicle is subjected to a frontalimpact.There are two possibilities,depending on the force of theimpact:- protection is provided by the belt

    only;- the pretensioner is triggered to

    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 body and therebyimproving its 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.

    LATERAL RESTRAINT SYSTEMSSide airbagsThese airbags are fitted to each ofthe front seats and are activated atthe sides of the seats (door side) toprotect the occupants in the event ofa severe side impact.

    These airbags operatethrough slits in the frontseatbacks (door side):never insert any objects

    in these slits. A marking on the windscreeninforms you of the presence ofadditional means of restraint(airbags, pretensioners, etc) in thepassenger compartment.

    Warnings concerning thelateral airbag Fitting seat covers: seats

    equipped with an airbagrequire covers specificallydesigned for your vehicle.Contact your RENAULT Dealerto find out if these covers may bepurchased from RENAULToutlets. The use of any coversother than those designed foryour vehicle (and includingthose designed for anothervehicle) may affect the operationof the airbags and reduce yourprotection.

    Do not place any accessories,objects or even pets between theseatback, the door and theinternal fittings. Do not cover theseatback with any items such asclothes or accessories. This mayprevent the airbag fromoperating correctly or causeinjury when the airbag isdeployed.

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

    ADDITIONAL RESTRAINT SYSTEMSAll 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. 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 seat belts are not worn,the occupants of the vehicle are exposed to the risk of serious injury in the event of an accident. The risk ofminor superficial injuries occurring when the airbag is deployed may also increase, although such minor

    injuries are always 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 shocks 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 (electronic units, wiring, etc.). (Such workmust only 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 a distance of 10 metres.Expressed in other terms,transporting a child without arestraint is the equivalent ofallowing him or her to play on afourth-floor balcony withoutrailings.

    In all countries there are regulationsgoverning the use of restraints forchildren 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 (whichrepresents the country where it istype approved) and the year inwhich the type approval wasgranted.Refer to the Child safetyequipment booklet available fromthe RENAULT Network to choosethe seat suited to your child andrecommended for your vehicle.

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

    passenger in the vehicle.If a frontal impact occurs at 30 mph(50 km/h) a child weighing 30 kgwill be transformed into a missileequivalent to one tonne: you willfind it impossible to hold the child,even if you yourself are wearing abelt.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.

    Some passenger seats are notsuitable for the installation of childseats.To know the authorised seats andtypes of child seats that can beinstalled in each of the authorisedseats, refer to the tables in thefollowing pages.

    Before installing a child seat in thefront seat (if installation ispermitted)If fitted to the passenger seat, carryout the following adjustments:- 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.

    (1) You must always comply with thelaws of the country in which you aretravelling. They may be different tothe guidelines in this handbook.

    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 seatif your vehicle is fitted with anISOFIX system (refer to ISOFIXchild seat fitting system inSection 1).Restraint systems for all thecategories are available. Thesesystems have been developedin consultation with themanufacturers and have been testedin RENAULT vehicles.Contact your RENAULT Dealer andask him to help you install it.

    Categories 0 and 0+ (from 0 to13 kg)A child's neck is very susceptible toinjury up to the age of two. It ispreferable to put your child into arear facing enclosing shell seat. Thisposition enhances safety.

    Category 1 (from 9 to 18 kg)Between the ages of 2 and 4, achild's pelvis 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 a buckettype seat that restrains the child bymeans of a harness or shockabsorbing pad.To avoid any risk to your safety, we recommend that you use

    RENAULT approved accessories because they are suitable for yourvehicle and are the only accessories for which RENAULT willprovide a warranty.

    Category 2 (15 to 25 kg) andcategory 3 (22 to 36 kg)To correctly restrain the pelvis of achild under 10 years, less than1.36 m tall weighing less than 36 kg,preferably use a raised seat with beltguides that ensure that thethree-point belt lies flat over thechild'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 the neck aspossible but not on it.Place the headrest in the topposition 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 the 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
