Chevrolet Sonic Repair Manual / Body / Restraints / Primary / Repairs and Inspections Required After a Collision

Warning:

Restraint systems can be damaged in a collision. To help avoid injury and ensure that all parts in need of replacement are replaced:

  • Replace any seat belt system that was in use during the collision serious enough to deploy any automatic restraint device such as air bags and seat belt pretensioners. This not only includes seat belt systems in use by people of adult size, but seat belt systems used to secure child restraints, infant carriers and booster seats, including LATCH system and top tether anchorages.
  • Replace any seat belt system that has torn, worn, or damaged components. This not only includes adult seat belt systems, but built-in child restraints and LATCH system components, if any.
  • Replace any seat belt system if you observe the words ?€?REPLACE?€? or ?€?CAUTION?€?, or if a yellow tag is visible. Do not replace a seat belt if only the child seat caution label is visible.
  • Replace any seat belt system if you are doubtful about its condition. This not only includes adult seat belt systems, but built-in child restraints, LATCH system components, and any restraint system used to secure infant carriers, child restraints, and booster seats.

    Do NOT replace single seat belt system components in vehicles that have been in a collision as described above. Always replace the entire seat belt system with the buckle, guide and retractor assembly, which includes the latch and webbing material.

After a minor collision where no automatic restraint device was deployed, seat belt system replacement may not be necessary, unless some of the parts are torn, worn, or damaged.
