First read and observe the introductory information and safety warnings

Seat belts will offer an optimum level of protection during an accident only when they are routed correctly. Correct seat belt routing reduces the risk of severe or fatal injuries. Correct seat belt routing also holds the vehicle occupants in position so that an inflating airbag can offer the maximum level of protection. Therefore you must always fasten seat belts and make sure the seat belt routing is correct.

An incorrect sitting position can cause severe or fatal injuries   .

Correct seat belt routing

For pregnant women the seat belt must be positioned evenly over the chest and as low as possible over the pelvis. It must lie flat so that no pressure is exerted on the lower body - this applies for the entire course of the pregnancy  .

Correct seat belt routing according to height

WARNING

Incorrect seat belt routing can cause severe injuries in the event of an accident or a sudden braking or driving manoeuvre.

If a person's physical build prevents them from routing the seat belt properly, contact a qualified workshop to find out about any special modifications so that the seat belts and airbags can provide the optimum level of protection. Volkswagen recommends using a Volkswagen dealership for this purpose.
