Correctly adjusted seat belts fix position of the driver and passengers during the movement and are an effective remedy of protection against severe injuries at road accident.
Install seat belts with three-point fastening on the car.
Regulating the provision of points of fastening of belts of front seats on height it is possible to achieve the best placement of a humeral branch of a belt.
Carry out adjustment of belts of front seats on height as follows.
Press a clamp and shift the top support of a belt up or down so that the humeral branch passed through the middle of a shoulder and not through a throat at all, then release a clamp.
After adjustment, having pulled a belt, be convinced that the top support of a belt is reliably recorded.

Degree of safety of the driver and the passengers fastened by belts is provided thanks to installation of prednatyazhitel of 3
of seat belts and limiters of pressure.
At head-on collisions of average or big force pyrotechnic prednatyazhitel instantly press bodies of the driver and the passenger to seatbacks.
The system of pyrotechnic prednatyazhitel of seat belts works only at the included ignition. Limiters of pressure reduce the pressure force of seat belts by a body of the driver and forward passenger in case of collision.
Operation of prednatyazhitel is controlled by the sensor of 4 safety cushions.
Do not remove and do not repair prednatyazhitel of seat belts, the sensor of safety cushions and an electrical wiring. Similar actions can cause their sudden operation or put system out of action that can lead to serious injuries.
The system of prednatyazhitel of seat belts includes the control indicator serving for informing the driver on work of system. This indicator lights up at turn of the ignition key in the provision of "ASS" or "ON" and dies away through 6 pages. It means that prednatyazhitel of forward seat belts work normally. In case of the conditions listed further it is necessary to address to the specialized center for service of the Toyota cars as soon as possible.
1. The indicator does not light up at turn of the ignition key in the provision of "ASS" or "ON" and continues to burn.
2. The indicator lights up or begins to blink during the movement.
3. If any of forward seat belts is not involved in the inertial coil or cannot be extended owing to malfunction or operation of prednatyazhitel.
4. Damages of prednatyazhitel of forward belts of a bezopasenost or the areas which are near them.

5. The road accident which affected a forward part of the car (the shaded area shown in
), but not caused operation of prednatyazhitel.
6. Scratches, cracks or other damages of prednatyazhitel of seat belts.
