► Check the belts for cuts, worn or frayed webbing and for cracked or deformed
metallic parts. Replace the belt assembly if it is defective.
► A dirty belt should be cleaned with neutral detergent in warm water. After rinsing in water, let it dry in the shade. Do not attempt to bleach or re-dye the belts because this will affect their characteristics.
► We recommend you to have all seat belt assemblies including retractors and
attaching hardware inspected after any collision.
We recommend that seat belt assemblies in use during a collision be replaced unless the collision was minor and the belts show no damage and continue to operate properly.
► Do not attempt to repair or replace any part of the seat belt assemblies; we recommend you to have this work done by a MITSUBISHI MOTORS Authorized Service Point. Incorrect repair or replacement could reduce the effectiveness of the belts and could result in serious injury in the event of a collision.
► Once the pretensioner has been activated, it cannot be re-used.
It must be replaced together with the retractor.
