How do I replace the seat belt pre-tensioners?

The seat belt pre-tensioners are safety features on your front seats that help the seat belts keep you secure in the event of an accident. The pre-tensioners can only be used one time, and cannot be repaired. If you have been involved in an accident, you should have your vehicle serviced as soon as possible so the pre-tensioners can be replaced.
