Notice: These mean there is something that could damage your vehicle. A notice tells about something that can damage the vehicle. The sudden movement could startle and confuse you, or make you push a pedal when you do not want to. The control is located on the outboard side of the seat cushion.
Press the control forward to increase lumbar support. Press the control rearward to decrease lumbar support. Page 10 To return the seatback to an upright position, do the following: 1. Lift the lever fully without applying pressure to the seatback and the seatback will return to the upright position. Push and pull on the seatback to make sure it is locked. This position reduces the chance of a neck injury in a crash.
Pull the head restraint up to raise it. This could cause severe injury or even death. That could cause injury to the person sitting there. Always push and pull on the seatback to be sure it is locked. It also tells you some things you should not do with safety belts. Put someone on it. Take the simplest vehicle. Suppose it is just a seat on wheels. Page 16 Get it up to speed.
Then stop the vehicle. The rider does not stop. In a real vehicle, it could be the windshield Page 17 or the instrument panel With safety belts, you slow down as the vehicle does. You get more time to stop. You stop over more distance, and your strongest bones take the forces.
That is why safety belts make such good sense. You could be — whether you are wearing a safety belt or not. But your chance of being conscious during and after an accident, so you can unbuckle and get out, is much greater if you are belted. Be aware that there are special things to know about safety belts and children. And there are different rules for smaller children and babies. If a child will be riding in your vehicle, see Older Children on page or Infants and Young Children on page Page 20 What is wrong with this?
The shoulder belt is too loose. It will not give as much protection this way. In a crash, you would move forward too much, which could increase injury. Page 21 What is wrong with this? The lap belt is too loose. It will not give nearly as much protection this way. In a crash, you could slide under the lap belt and apply force on your abdomen. Page 22 What is wrong with this? The belt is buckled in the wrong place.
In a crash, the belt would go up over your abdomen. The belt forces would be there, not on the pelvic bones. Page 23 What is wrong with this? The belt is over an armrest. The belt would be much too high. In a crash, you can slide under the belt. Page 24 What is wrong with this? The shoulder belt is worn under the arm.
It should be worn over the shoulder at all times. In a crash, your body would move too far forward, which would increase the chance of head and neck injury. Page 25 What is wrong with this? The belt is behind the body. In a crash, you would not be restrained by the shoulder belt. Your body could move too far forward increasing the chance of head and neck injury. Page 26 What is wrong with this?
The belt is twisted across the body. In a crash, you would not have the full width of the belt to spread impact forces. Page 27 3. Push the latch plate into the buckle until it clicks. Pull up on the latch plate to make sure it is secure. If the belt is not long enough, see Safety Belt Extender on page Make sure the release button on the buckle is positioned so you would be able to unbuckle the safety belt quickly if necessary.
The belt should go back out of the way. Before you close a door, be sure the belt is out of the way. If you slam the door on it, you can damage both the belt and your vehicle. Although you cannot see them, they are part of the safety belt assembly. They can help tighten the safety belts during the early stages of a moderate to severe frontal or near frontal crash if the threshold conditions for pretensioner activation are met.
Page 30 2. Place the guide over the belt and insert the 3. The elastic cord must be under the belt and the guide on top. The person wearing the belt could be seriously injured. The shoulder belt should go over the shoulder and across the chest. These parts of the body are best able to take belt restraining forces. Like all occupants, they are more likely to be seriously injured if they do not wear safety belts. A pregnant woman should wear a lap-shoulder belt, and the lap portion should be worn as low as possible, below the rounding, throughout the pregnancy.
Page 34 What is the proper way to wear safety belts? An older child should wear a lap-shoulder belt and get the additional restraint a shoulder belt can provide. The shoulder belt should not cross the face or neck. Here a child is sitting in a seat that has a lap-shoulder belt, but the shoulder part is behind the child.
