This type of belt requires no length adjustment. Once worn, the belt adjusts itself to the movement of the wearer, but in the event of a sudden or strong shock, the belt automatically locks to restrain the wearer’s body.

To fasten

To fasten

Pull the seat belt out slowly while holding the latch plate.

NOTE

When the seat belts cannot be pulled out in a locked condition, pull the belts once forcefully and then return them. After that, pull the belts out slowly once again. Insert the latch plate into the buckle until a ”click” is heard.

CAUTION

(1) Never wear the lap portion of the belt across your abdomen. During accidents it can press sharply against your abdomen and increase the risk of injury.
(2) The seat belts must not be twisted when worn.

Pull the belt slightly to adjust looseness as desired.

To unfasten

To unfasten

Hold the latch plate and push the button on the buckle.

NOTE

As the belt retracts automatically, keep the latch plate held while retracting so that the belt stows slowly. Failure to do this could damage the vehicle.
