Seat belt pre-tensioner system and forcelimiter systemSeat belt pre-tensioner system and forcelimiter system  - Seat and seat belts - Mitsubishi Outlander Owner's Manual - Mitsubishi Outlander

The driver’s seat and front passenger’s seat each have a seat belt equipped with a pre-tensioner system.

Pre-tensioner system

The pre-tensioner system will retract their respective seat belts instantaneously, thus maximizing the seat belt’s effectiveness, if there is a frontal impact severe enough to injure the driver and/or front passenger and the ignition switch is in the “ON” or “START” position.

WARNING:

● To obtain the best results from your pre-tensioner seat belt, make sure you have adjusted your seat correctly and wear your seat belt properly.

CAUTION:

● Any installation of audio equipment or repairs in the vicinity of the pre-tensioner seat belts or floor console must be performed in line with MITSUBISHI MOTORS guidelines. It is important to do so because the work could affect the pre-tensioner systems.

● If you need to scrap the vehicle, please consult a MITSUBISHI MOTORS Authorised Service Point.

It is important to do so because unexpected activation of the pre-tensioner seat belts could cause injuries.

NOTE:

● The pre-tensioner seat belts will be activated if the vehicle suffers a severe frontal impact, even if the seat belts are not worn.

● The pre-tensioner seat belts are designed to work only once. After the pre-tensioner seat belts have been activated, we recommed you have it replaced by a MITSUBISHI MOTORS Authorised Service Point.

SRS warning

The same warning lamp/display is shared by the SRS airbags and the pre-tensioner seat belts. Refer to “SRS warning lamp/display”.

Force limiter system

In the event of a collision, each force limiter system will effectively absorb the load applied to the seat belt to minimize the impact to the passenger.
