Knots and systems of safety of the driver and passengers

GENERAL INFORMATION

SYSTEM OF RESTRICTION OF MOVINGS OF PASSENGERS AND DRIVER

The number of components of system includes seat belts fixed in three points, and also safety cushions of the driver and the passenger (if it is provided).
Thus, depending on failure of an overload defined by gravity the system works in two stages. At the first stage there is a blocking of seat belts that guarantees fixing of the driver and passengers on the seats. Further, at a considerable face-to-face overload the system of safety cushions (if that is provided) works, providing additional protection of the driver and the forward passenger.


Prevention

Remember that existence in the car of safety cushions does not release the driver and the forward passenger from need to be fastened during movement by belts!

SEAT BELTS OF FORWARD SEATS

Seats of Opel Frontera cars are equipped with the seat belts fixed in three points providing sufficient freedom of moving of the driver and passengers at movement of the car with constant speed. Thus the returnable device of inertial type constantly supports belts in the tense condition, choosing all superfluous weak point.
At the same time inertial the returnable device provides reliable blocking of a belt at sharp braking or face-to-face front blow.

PERFORMANCE ORDER
1. For clothing accurately extend a belt from the returnable device and, trying not to overwind, throw it through a shoulder.
2. Insert a metal bracket of the lock into a buckle before click. Thus the back of a seat should not be inclined too strongly back. The zone site of a belt thus also without a perekruchivaniye should adjoin to a body densely.

Into structure of system enter placed in a steering wheel and the dashboard of the car of a pillow with the cylinders filled with gas, the electronic control unit with the sensor of blow and a control lamp on an instrument guard

Initiation of a pillow occurs at strong front blow of the car which vector is in sector 30 from the axial line. If the car hits about a rigid obstacle, operation of pillows occurs even at insignificant speed of movement. For operation of pillows after collision with an obstacle giving in to deformation (for example other car) speed of movement of the car should be rather high.


Remark

In view of the aforesaid, the criteria defining operation of system of safety cushions, the direction and character of blow, and also rigidity of a design of the car and an obstacle with which it are faces, and at all not received by a vehicle as a result of failure a damage.

At system initiation the safety cushion during milliseconds is filled with gas, providing with that additional protection of the driver and the forward passenger at the expense of restriction of freedom of their moving in the longitudinal direction.
The system provides a maximum level of protection only at the correct adjustment of provision of backs and head restraints of forward seats of the car. At the correct landing the driver should hold a steering wheel hands slightly bent in elbows. The passenger seat should be shifted as it is possible further back at vertically established back. Do not put the head, hands and feet on covers of safety cushions.


Prevention

Remember that existence in the car of safety cushions does not release the driver and the forward passenger from need to be fastened during movement by belts!


Initiation of system of safety cushions does not occur in cases, when:
a) Ignition is switched off;
b) Force of front blow is insignificant;
c) The car at failure turns over;
d) The blow occurs not in the front direction.

Malfunctions of system of safety cushions are traced by the built-in system of self-diagnostics. On a condition of system of the driver informs control lamps on an instrument guard of the car (see above).
