Instructions for use means of passive safety of the driver and passengers

Stated below the instruction acquaint the reader with ways of maintenance of the maximum protection of all people being in the car.

Doors

After the driver and all passengers have taken the places in salon, be convinced that all doors of the car are densely closed.

On some models the special control lamp which lights up at leaky closing of one or several doors of the car is provided.

Forward seats

The driver sitting too close to the panel of devices is exposed to the raised risk травмирования, up to reception of serious mutilations and a lethal outcome from blow about a steering wheel or at operation of a pillow of safety, in case of road and transport incident.

In order to avoid risk травмирования, properly fasten a seat belt, result a seat back in vertical position (an inclination no more than 30 ) and densely nestle on it a back, having removed at this seat in position as much as possible removed from a steering wheel. Certainly, the driver should provide to itself the good review and possibility of a convenient manipulation with all controls the car. Make sure that the seat of the forward passenger also is as much as possible removed from the panel of devices.

Too close position of seats of the driver and the forward passenger to a steering wheel/panel of devices in case of road and transport incident can lead to reception of serious traumas and even to a deadly outcome!


Try to have always forward seats on the maximum removal from modules of pillows of safety.

The overwhelming majority of drivers (even low growth) can remove as much as possible far a driver's seat from a steering wheel, freely getting thus to pedals. However if you are disturbed by too close position of a driver's seat to a steering wheel, composers of the present Management recommend to the reader to pay attention to existence of some kinds of auxiliaries, - on firm car repair shops it is possible to receive the exhaustive information on this point in question.

Having convinced of correctness of position of a seat, check up reliability of its fixing.

Adjust an inclination of a back of a driver's seat, having resulted it in the most convenient for your constitution, as much as possible approached to vertical position, having left thus sufficient space between a thorax and a nave of a steering wheel with the pillow of safety built in in it. Remember that excessively close arrangement of the driver / the forward passenger to the panel of devices appreciably raises risk of reception of traumas at operation of pillows of safety.

Too strong inclination of a back of a seat leads to that the humeral section of a seat belt will not nestle on a thorax that in an essential measure reduces efficiency of its protective functions. The more the seat back is inclined back, the above probability проскальзывания bodies sitting under zone section at strong front blow, and that is heavier the got traumas can. Instructions on adjustment of backs of a seat are resulted in Section Adjustment of seats.

Headrests

Before a start of motion make sure that position of headrests on each of seats corresponds to necessary requirements, providing due protection of cervical department of a backbone and a head sitting at blow behind. The headrest should be adjusted on height so that its central part was flush with a nape. If it is not possible to achieve it, the headrest should be established in extreme top position.

Wrong position of headrests reduces efficiency of their protective functions and raises risk of reception of serious traumas as a result of road and transport incident! Instructions on adjustment of position of headrests are resulted in Section Adjustment of seats.


Seat belts

All being in the car during movement people should be fastened seat belts.

Belts of forward seats and lateral places of a back seat have diagonalno-zone (треханкерную) a design, the central seat of a back seat is equipped двуханкерным by a belt of a zone design.

Seat belts of forward seats are equipped automatic emergency натяжителями. The using order such belts is similar to an order of using belts of a usual design. More in detail the principle of functioning emergency натяжителей is considered more low in corresponding subsection.

Use of one seat belt for пристегивания more than one person is not supposed.

The dvuhankernyj belt and zone section треханкерного a belt should settle down at level of hips, covering a coxofemoral joint sitting, as the strongest element of a skeleton of the person (see more low).

The humeral section of a belt should not be passed under the arm or be imposed on a neck of the sitting.

Watch, that the belt has not been overwound.

Remember that peak efficiency of action of a seat belt is reached in vertical position of a back of a seat. The excessive inclination of a back increases probability проскальзывания sitting under a belt at blow.

Seat belts of a diagonalno-zone design have three анкерных the points one of which is equipped by the inertial returnable device with automatic blocking at jerks. Belts of this kind do not require adjustment of length.

At installation of a special children's seat it is necessary to translate a seat belt in a condition of constant blocking by full вытягивания it from the returnable device. Keeping it in the extended condition, fix it a children's seat, operating according to instructions of the manufacturer of the last. After защелкивания buckles surplus of length of a belt will be winded on a drum of the returnable device and will be blocked, having provided reliable fixing of a children's seat.

For return of a belt to a usual operating mode remove a special children's seat and allow the returnable device to wind a belt on the inertial drum.

Instructions for use seat belts

Slowly extend a belt from the returnable device, throw it through a shoulder and latch скобу belt buckles in the lock, then pull for a strap of humeral section upwards, checking reliability of fixing скобы in the lock. Make sure that the belt strap is not overwound, - the overwound belt in itself is dangerous.

As much as possible lower zone section of a belt, having placed it as it is possible more low on hips. Having pulled for humeral section, choose a weak point and try to achieve dense прилегания a belt to a body, - in case of need tighten a belt in appropriate way. The strap should pass through a thorax sitting on a diagonal so that loading at blow had basically on the strongest top part of a torso.

The scornful relation to application of seat belts is fraught with reception of serious traumas in case of road and transport incident!


The driver of a vehicle, having fastened by the seat belt, should check, that all passengers also have been properly fastened.

Correct position of zone section of a belt will provide the most safe repayment of inertia of a body at failure, keeping it for strong bones of a coxofemoral joint.

If the humeral section of a belt appears laid too low and the strap passes through a shoulder of a hand sitting, it is necessary to correct position top анкерного belt fastenings on a car rack. Press the button of a clamp and shift fastening upwards or downwards on built in in a rack directing, achieving correct position of humeral section of a belt concerning a neck. Fastening has four fixed positions.

At all do not pass humeral section of a belt near at hand and do not get it for a back, is it can appear it is fraught with the most serious consequences at failure!


Incorrectly functioning seat belt cannot provide appropriate protection of the driver/passenger in case of road and transport incident. Wrong using belts is inadmissible involves serious risk of reception of traumas, damages and even a lethal outcome. In the absence of confidence of correctness of adjustments, charge to experts of a car repair shop of company Subaru how to carry out check of functioning of seat belts.

To unfasten a belt, press the red button with inscription PRESS which is located on the case of the lock of a buckle. At taking - up of a belt by a drum of the returnable device it is necessary to hold it for скобу buckles. After an exit from the car track, that the belt has not got to a doorway and it has not appeared is clamped at захлопывании by last.

The additional information on seat belts

Diagonalno-zone (треханкерный) a seat belt


Belts of a diagonalno-zone design are equipped with the returnable device of the inertial type which drum, automatically chooses a weak point of straps and constantly supports a small preliminary tension of the belt pressed to a body. Inertial belts practically does not constrain movements of the person fastened by them and allows it to change a pose to a seat easily. At road and transport incident or sharp braking of the car the returnable device automatically blocks a seat belt, providing fixing of a body from dangerous movings.

Used on considered models of cars diagonalno-zone seat belts of back seats, are supplied by the additional clamps providing possibility of reliable fastening of special children's seats. More detailed information on this point in question can be received on firm car repair shops of company Subaru.

At sharp вытягивании humeral section of a belt the fixing mechanism of the returnable device is put in action. The drum blocks a belt, excepting possibility of dangerous moving of the passenger.

Additional recommendations


Do not attach to straps of seat belts any overlays and other subjects. Installation of extras or change of position of fastening of humeral section can lower efficiency of action of seat belts and increase probability травмирования at failure.


Transportation of firm or sharp subjects in a lap, or driving with a tube for smoking or other sharp subjects in a mouth at failure can lead to reception heavy to traumas.

For the purpose of prevention of risk of unapproved operation of face-to-face pillows of safety try not to press a hand to the locations of their modules on the panel of devices and a steering wheel nave.

Automatic emergency натяжители seat belts


The Section System of additional safety (SRS) see.

Steering column


The steering column should be adjusted so that steering wheel was opposite to a thorax of the driver. Position at which the steering wheel nave is opposite to the person of the driver, is wrong as reduces protective functions of the forward pillow of safety built in in it. The description of procedure of adjustment of position of a steering wheel is resulted in Section Adjustment of an inclination of a steering column (if it is provided).

Landing to a seat

After the driver and all passengers have taken the places in car salon, have adjusted position of the seats and have put on seat belts, they should give correct position to the body, densely having nestled a back on a back of a seat and firmly having put feet on a salon floor. Feet should not come off a floor up to a full stop of the car and engine deenergizing.

Infringement of correctness of landing during movement raises risk of reception of a trauma as a result of road and transport incident. So, if passengers sit having bent, lie, turn in the parties, bend forward or sideways, get on a seat with feet, the risk of reception by them of serious mutilations as a result of failure considerably increases.

Besides, the forward passengers occupying wrong position on seats, can get serious traumas from parts of internal furnish of salon breaking as a result of emergency blow, or from operation of a forward pillow of safety.

If on equipped with lateral/head pillows of safety the car the head of the forward passenger during movement is inclined sideways and is in a zone of operation of a pillow of safety, the risk of reception by it extremely raises at failure of serious traumas and mutilations.

Try to observe correct position on a seat during all trip, holding a back densely pressed to a back of a seat and having put feet on a floor. Remember that vertical position of landing and competent use of seat belts raise efficiency of functioning of all elements of safety by which the car is equipped.

Recommendations for pregnant women

Safety of the pregnant woman is the best way of preservation of a fruit in case of road accident, therefore at movement on the car (as the driver or the passenger) the pregnant woman should be fastened without fail a seat belt, paying thus special attention on correctness of placing of its sections concerning the body.

At use of belts of a diagonalno-zone design it is necessary to remember that the zone section of a belt should settle down as it is possible more low on hips and not to be at all not imposed on a stomach.

The pregnant woman also should occupy vertical position on a seat. Thus the forward seat should be as much as possible far is removed from the panel of devices that will allow in case of road and transport incident or operation of a forward pillow of safety to lower risk of reception of traumas and mutilations not only for mother, but also for a fruit.

At each visiting of the observing doctor, consult, whether it is desirable to operate for you the car.
