SERVICE INFORMATION WARNING
DO NOT attempt to service, repair, replace, modify or tamper with any part of the pre-tensioner and airbag SRS, or wiring in the vicinity of a pre-tensioner or airbag SRS component; this could cause the system to activate, resulting in personal injury.
After 15 years from the original date of registration (or the installation date of replacement pre-tensioners) some seat belt pre-tensioner components must be replaced by a Land Rover retailer. See ‘Seat belt pre-tensioner replacement date’ shown in your Passport to Service.
In addition, ALWAYS contact your retailer if:
an airbag inflates.
a pre-tensioner activates.
the front or side of the vehicle is damaged,
even if the pre-tensioner has not activated.
CARING FOR SEAT BELTS
DO NOT allow foreign matter (particularly sugary food and drink particles) to enter the seat belt locks - such substances can render the locks inoperative.
Regularly inspect the belt webbing for signs of fraying, cuts and wear, and also pay particular attention to the condition of the fixing points and adjusters.
DO NOT bleach or dye the webbing. Clean the webbing using warm water and non-detergent soap only - allow to dry naturally and DO NOT retract or use the belts until they are completely dry.
Always replace a seat belt that shows signs of webbing wear or has withstood the strain of a severe vehicle impact.
Testing inertia reel belts
With the seat belt fastened, give the webbing near the buckle a quick upward pull. The buckle must remain securely locked.
With the seat belt unfastened, unreel the webbing to the limit of its travel. Check that unreeling is free from snatches and snags and then allow the belt to FULLY retract.
Partially unreel the webbing, then hold the tongue plate and give it a quick forward pull. The mechanism must lock automatically and prevent any further unreeling.
If a seat belt should fail any of these tests, contact your retailer immediately.
