How do I replace or repair the seat belt pretensioners?

The pretensioners are very important parts of your seat belt system. They exist in the front seats, and help secure the occupant in the event of an accident. The seat belt pretensioners can only be used once, and cannot be repaired. Therefore, if your vehicle has been involved in an accident, you should visit a dealer or mechanic as soon as possible to have the pretensioners replaced.
