Volkswagen Tiguan Owners Manual: Cleaning the safety belts

Read and follow the introductory information and safety information firstIntroduction to the subject 

If a safety belt is dirty, this can prevent the belt from working properly. Keep safety belts clean and regularly check all safety belts for damage.

Safety belts must never be taken apart for cleaning.

  • Remove coarse dirt with a soft brush ⇒ .
  • Carefully pull the dirty safety belt out of the retractor and keep it out.
  • Clean the safety belt with a mild soap solution.
  • After cleaning, always give the safety belts time to dry thoroughly before letting them retract. This helps prevent damage to the retractor.
  • Do not let the safety belts retract until they are completely dry.

Warning

Damage to safety belts reduces their overall effectiveness and increases the risk of serious personal injury and death whenever the vehicle is being used.
  • Check the condition of all safety belts regularly. If you notice that the safety belt webbing, hardware, retractor, buckle, or any other part of the safety belts is damaged, immediately have an authorized Volkswagen dealer or authorized Volkswagen Service Facility replace the safety belt with the correct replacement belt for your vehicle model and model year.
  • Never use chemical cleaning agents, solvents, or any substance that may damage or weaken the safety belt webbing or any other parts of the safety belt. Never let the belts come into contact with corrosive fluids or sharp objects. Otherwise, the safety belt webbing will be significantly weakened.
  • After cleaning, always give the safety belts time to dry completely before letting them retract. The moisture can damage the retractor and keep it from working properly.
  • Never let foreign objects or liquids get into the safety belt latch. This could prevent the belt buckles and safety belts from working properly.
  • Damaged safety belts must be replaced; they cannot be repaired.
  • Never try to repair a damaged safety belt yourself. Never remove or modify the safety belts in any way.
  • Safety belts that were subject to stress in an accident and stretched must be replaced with a correct, new safety belt, preferably by an authorized Volkswagen dealer or authorized Volkswagen Service Facility.
  • Replacement after a crash may be necessary even if a safety belt shows no visible damage. Anchorages that have been loaded must also be inspected.
