How do I inspect the seat belts?

Since the seat belts are one of the most important safety features in your vehicle, it’s important to make sure that they are always in working condition. To ensure that your seat belts can operate properly, you should give them an inspection every few months. During this inspection, pull out all of the belts and run your hands over them, while also inspecting them visually. Any sign of fraying or ripping means the seat belt may die shortly. After inspecting the belts, make sure that they retract easily into the anchor. If the belts are not in great shape, or are not retracting easily, you should get them replaced as soon as possible.
