Hyundai Azera: Pre-tensioner seat belt - Seat belts - Safety features of your vehicle - Hyundai Azera 2011-2022 Owners ManualHyundai Azera: Pre-tensioner seat belt

Your vehicle is equipped with driver's and front passenger's pre-tensioner seat


Your vehicle is equipped with driver's and front passenger's pre-tensioner seat belts. The purpose of the pretensioner is to make sure that the seat belts fit tightly against the occupant's body in certain frontal collisions or side collisions. The pre-tensioner seat belts may be activated in crashes where the frontal collision or side collision is severe enough.

When the vehicle stops suddenly, or if the occupant tries to lean forward too quickly, the seat belt retractor will lock into position. In certain frontal collisions or side collision, the pretensioner will activate and pull the seat belt into tighter contact against the occupant's body.

If the system senses excessive tension on the driver or passenger's seat belt when the pre-tensioner activates, the load limiter inside the pretensioner will release some of the pressure on the affected seat belt.

WARNING

Do not put anything near the buckle. Placing objects near the buckle can adversely affect the anchor pre-tensioner and may increase the risk of personal injury in the event of a collision.

The seat belt pre-tensioner system consists mainly of the following components.


The seat belt pre-tensioner system consists mainly of the following components. Their locations are shown in the illustration:

1. SRS air bag warning light

Both the driver's and front passenger's pre-tensioner seat belts may be activated in certain frontal collisions or side collisions.
