    Note

    Be sure to follow the procedure listed below when activating the seat belt pretensioner.


    1. A0054FGE02

      Remove the front seat outer belt.


      1. Wind the seat belt with the retractor.

      2. When the seat belt is sufficiently wound, cut the seat belt approximately 100 mm (0.393 in.) from the retractor as shown in the illustration.

        Tech Tips

        The seat belt is designed so that winding the seat belt before pretensioner activation will decrease the pulling power of the seat belt during pretensioner activation.
