Safety
belt
retractor
The
safety
belts
are
equipped
with
an
automatic
belt
retractor.
This
automatic
retractor
allows
the
safety
belt
to
be
pulled
all
the
way
out
when
the
belt
is
pulled
slowly.
However,
the
automatic
re-
tractor
locks
during
sudden
braking
maneuvers.
It
also
locks
the
belts
when
accelerating,
driving
uphill,
and
driving
around
curves.
Belt
force
limiter
Safety
belts
with
belt
force
limiters
reduce
the
force
placed
on
the
body
by
the
safety
belts
dur-
ing
a
collision.
Safety
belt
pretensioners
In
certain
driving
situations,
safety
belts
may
be
tightened
with
reversible
belt
tensioners
when
you
start
driving.
If
the
safety
belt
is
too
loose,
it
will
be
tightened
so
that
the
belt
will
rest
closer
to
the
body.
In
some
collisions,
pyrotechnic
belt
tensioners
may
secure
the
safety
belts
so
that
they
cannot
loosen.
This
reduces
forward
movement
by
the
vehicle
passengers.
ZA
WARNING
The
pyrotechnic
system
can
only
provide
pro-
tection
during
one
collision.
If
the
pyrotechnic
belt
tensioners
deploy,
the
pretensioning
sys-
tem
must
be
replaced
by
an
authorized
Audi
dealer
or
authorized
Audi
Service
Facility.

Tips
Smoke
may
be
released
when
pyrotechnic
belt
tensioners
deploy.
This
is
not
a
sign
of
a
vehi-
cle
fire.

WARNING
If
you
have
not
fastened
your
safety
belt,
you
are
in
an
incorrect
seating
position,
or
you
are
too
close
to
the
airbag
system,
the
airbag
system
will
not
be
able
to
protect
you.
This
increases
the
risk
of
serious
or
fa-
tal
injuries.
Make
sure
that
every
vehicle
passenger
has
their
safety
belt
correctly
fas-
tened
and
is
sitting
in
a
correct
seating
posi-
tion
>
page
54.
This
is
necessary
regardless
of
whether
the
seat
is
equipped
with
an
air-
bag
or
not.
Never
place
your
feet
on
the
instrument
panel,
out
of
the
window,
or
on
the
seat
sur-
faces.
To
help
ensure
that
the
airbag
system
can
deploy
correctly,
never
bend
forward
or
lean
on
the
door
or
the
side
window.
Other-
wise,
serious and
possibly
fatal
injuries
can
occur
if
the
airbags
deploy.
People,
animals,
or
objects
between
the
passengers
and
the
airbag
system
can
inter-
fere
with
the
correct
deployment
of
the
air-
bag
or
can
be
thrown through
the
vehicle
in-
terior,
increasing
the
risk
of
serious
or
fatal
injuries.
Make
sure
that
nothing
is
located
between
the
vehicle
occupants
and
the
air-
bag
system.
Do
not
secure
or
transport
any
objects
within
the
deployment
zone
of
the
airbag
systems,
especially
on
the
steering
wheel,
on
the
instrument
panel,
on
the
doors,
on
the
windows,
or
in
the
footwell.
Never
put
stickers
on
the
airbag
system
cov-
ers
or
cover
them
with
any
objects.
Only
lightweight
clothing
should
be
hung
from
the
garment
hooks
in
the
vehicle.
Do
not
use
clothes
hangers
to
hang
clothing.
The
pockets
of
the
clothing
must
not
con-
tain
any
heavy,
breakable,
or
sharp-edged
objects.
This
could
impair
the
effectiveness
of
the
side
curtain
airbags.
You
must
not
use
seat
or
protective
covers
that
are
not
specifically
approved
for
use
on
Audi
seats
with
side
airbags.
Since
the
side
airbags
deploy
from
the
seat
backrest, such
covers
could
impair
the
protective
function
of
the
side
airbags.
Damage
to
the
original
seat
covers
in
the
side
airbag
deployment
area
must
always
be
repaired
by an
authorized
Audi
dealer
or
au-
thorized
Audi
Service
Facility.
Airbag
system
components
are
installed
at
various
locations
in
your
vehicle.
Incorrect
work
or
repairs
on
the
vehicle
could
damage
the
airbag
system
components
or
impair
