The Supplemental Restraint system protects all of the individuals in your Subaru in the event of an accident. If that accident occurs, you may be looking at potential repairs that may need to occur. If you are a do-it-yourself person, you may want to tackle this task on your own. However, it is good to understand how the supplemental restraint system works before attempting to fix a seat belt or any other part of the system.
In the newer seat belt systems, a pretensioner is one of the main components in keeping you safe. The pretensioner tightens any slack that may exist in the webbing. It does this by using gas to create a flare. This causes pressure to build up inside. The retractor, then rotates, tightening the seat belt webbing. If the accident has a strong enough force, the seat belt tightening may not be enough to keep the individual from moving from their seat. Sometimes, the force causes the individual to stretch the seat belt. They may end up hitting such as the steering wheel, dashboard, or seat. For this reason, try to drive with your hands at the 10 and 2 o’clock position rather than the 11 & 1 o’clock. If you are wearing a watch or ring(s), your head may end up hitting them causing even more potential damage to occur.
