essential information in the illustrations is always correct.
When repairing a crashed vehicle, the Volvo policy is to replace those systems that may have been damaged where full function cannot be guaranteed.
What is replaced and when?
Driver/passenger airbags (SRS) and seat belt tensioners indicate clearly when they have deployed and must be replaced.
When a driver or passenger airbag (SRS) has deployed:
all seat belt tensioners, seat belt buckles and end mountings in the rear seat have been activated and must therefore be replaced
the seat belt tensioners in the front seats are checked according to Seat belt tensioner, checking See: Seat Belt Systems/Seat Belt
Tensioner/Testing and Inspection , as activation of the tensioner function depends on whether seat belt was in use or not.
When the vehicle is subjected to collision forces without the driver or passenger airbag (SRS) deploying:
all seat belt tensioners in the vehicle must be checked. See Seat belt tensioner, checking See: Seat Belt Systems/Seat Belt Tensioner/Testing and
When replacing seat belts that were in use in a collision, cut the seat belt to prevent reuse.
