Warning
When
the
pretensioners
deployed, there is a light discharge
of harmless smoke and a loud noise,
both due to the detonation of the
integral explosive cartridges that
activate them.
Depending on the nature and the
force of the impact, this triggering may
happen prior to, and independently of,
the deployment of the airbags.
In all cases, the airbag warning lamp
comes on.

Legislation makes it compulsory for
all the vehicle's occupants to wear
seat belts, including pregnant women
and however short the journey.
Inside the cabin, the seat belt is the
most important protection for pas-
sengers.
A warning lamp informs you if the
driver's and/or front/rear passen-
gers' seat belts are not fastened,
when the ignition is switched on.
In the event of a collision or on emer-
gency braking, the seat belt will hold
you in your seat, preventing you
from being thrown from the vehicle.
Pyrotechnically pretensioned
seat belts with force-limiters
In the event of a collision:
The pretensioners pull back the
front seat belts. The occupants
are thus held more firmly against
their seats.
The force limiters reduce the pres-
sure of the seat belt against the
are
occupant's chest, thus enhancing
the protection that the seat belt
provides.
Seat belts and pyro-
technic pretensioner
systems
They must be replaced following
a deployment, preferably by a
CITROËN dealer or by an authori-
sed repairer.
Due to the safety regulations
in force, any check or any
replacement should preferably
be carried out by the CITROËN
network which guarantees the
work and ensures that it is done
correctly.
Any repair that is not done in
strict compliance with require-
ments could result in the sys-
tems operating incorrectly or
randomly, with the risk of bodily
injuries being caused.
