Range Rover Evoque: Seat belt checks

Note: If the vehicle is parked on an incline, the seat belt mechanism may lock. This is not a fault and the belt should be gently eased out from the upper anchorage.

The seat belts should be inspected regularly to check for fraying, cuts, wear to the webbing and the condition and security of the mechanism, buckles, adjusters and mounting points.

- With the seat belt fastened, give the webbing near the buckle a quick upward pull. The buckle must remain securely locked.

- With the seat belt unfastened, unreel the seat belt to the limit of its travel. Check that it unreels smoothly with no snatches or snags. Allow the belt to fully retract, again checking for smooth operation.

- Partially unreel the seat belt, then hold the tongue plate and give a quick forward pull.

The mechanism must lock and prevent any further unreeling.

If any of the seat belts fail to meet those criteria, immediately contact you Land Rover Dealer/Authorised Repairer.
