How do I check the health of my seat belts?

It’s important to periodically inspect your seat belts, to make sure that they are in good health. A seat belt that is dying should be replaced immediately. To inspect the seat belts, extend them from the retractors and use your eyes and hands to check for rough spots, tearing, fraying, or other damage. Also check the buckles and retractors to make sure that they are in good condition.
