Safety systems

Natyazhitel of a seat belt

Natyazhitel of a belt provides the best prileganiye of a belt to a body is ready during collision, and allows to hold reliably him on a seat. For fractions of a second the belt lock under the influence of pressure of gas moves back, at the same time pulling diagonal and zone belts. Thereby reliable protection against a proskalzyvaniye of the person under a zone belt is provided.

Seat belts

To be fastened by seat belts it is necessary before each trip.

Pristegivaniye: at the moment of a pristegivaniye the lock of a belt should be locked with heard click.

Otstegivaniye: press the red button and, holding a belt tape, send it to involving device.

Belt adjustment on height


On the growth you can make belt adjustment by adjustment of the top point of its fastening.

For this purpose displace the button down or up.

The lock with an inscription of "CENTER" is intended only for a belt of the passenger sitting in the middle on a back seat.

For the sake of your safety observe given below the instruction on using a belt, differently it cannot execute the protective function completely. Do not forget to inform all your satellites on need of observance of instructions for use seat belts.

By one seat belt only one person always should be fastened. During movement of the car of chest and juvenile children it is impossible to hold on a lap at adult passengers. The tape of a belt should be hardly tense and without a perekruchivaniye to adjoin to a breast and a belt, and under it in pockets of clothes there should not be firm or fragile subjects. The belt should not cover a neck. Its jamming or a friction about keen edges is inadmissible.

The belt should adjoin to a body therefore the clothes should not be muffling up densely whenever possible. Tighten a belt in a shoulder more often. Otherwise at head-on collisions leaky adjacent zone belt can slide off on hips up and injure the lower part of a stomach. Because of the increased gap between a belt and a body the holding effect of a belt is realized with delay.

By seat belts pregnant women always should be fastened, watching thus, in particular, behind that the zone strap covered hips from below and did not press on a stomach.

Systems of safe transportation детей*

For children be elderly till 12 years and less than 150 cm should be used by growth the special resolved systems of safe transportation.

Small children till 18 months can be carried in the cradles established on a back seat against a course of movement and fixed by serial seat belts.

For each age group HUNDRED BMWs will offer the relevant systems of safe transportation of children. At installation of these systems observe instructions of the manufacturer.

Is inadmissible to establish systems of safe transportation of children on a forward passenger seat, differently at operation of an inflatable safety cushion possibly receiving traumas.

Is inadmissible to make changes to a design of systems of transportation of children, differently they cannot execute the protective function completely.

The built-in nurseries сиденья*


These two children's seats which have been built in on extreme places of a back seat and corresponding requirements, developed on the basis of the instruction of the Economic commission of the United Nations for Europe at the number R-44, intend for children from 3.5 to 12 years (from 15 to 36 kg).

For children from 18 months to 3.5 years (from 9 to 18 kg) these seats should be used in a combination to a special back and a travmozashchitny table which can be got on HUNDRED BMWs.

Seat promotion:

Undertake a forward part of a back seat and pull it up and slightly back, as shown an arrow. Then press on a seat back to its zashchelkivaniye.

Seat lowering:


Having undertaken a loop, pull forward and down, as shown an arrow. Then press on a seat from above to a zashchelkivaniye.

The built-in children's seats should be used only at existence in the car of head restraints.

At adjustment of forward seats watch that feet of children did not appear clamped.

Never leave children in the car without supervision even if they sit on children's seats.

Observe instructions on using the seat belts, given above in this Section, differently they cannot execute the protective function.


At damage of belts or after failure address on HUNDRED BMWs for replacement of the built-in children's seat and - if necessary - other accessories.

Locking of children in the car

Shift down the clamp located on a back door. Now this door cannot be opened from salon.

Inflatable safety cushions (NPB)

1 Forward inflatable safety cushions for the driver and the passenger.
2 Top inflatable safety cushions for protection of the head (over forward seats).
3 Lateral safety cushions (on lobbies and задних* places).


Inertial sensors constantly supervise forces of acceleration operating on the car. If as a result of collision the driver and the passenger are affected by such force of acceleration at which one only seat belts cannot provide sufficient protection any more, in parallel with each other work gas generators of inflatable safety cushions for the driver and the forward passenger. However NPB for the forward passenger is put in action only in case the sensor established in a seat, distinguishes that on it really someone sits.

In case of lateral collision if necessary works NPB for protection of the head, and also lobbies or задние* lateral NPB.

NPB which are located under as appropriate designated safety facings, are developed, for some milliseconds being filled with gas. Thus they break off or squeeze out safety facing in in advance defined places.

Fast deployment which is necessary for normal functioning of NPB, is accompanied by zapalny cotton and noise from a naduvaniye which, however, against failure simply are not perceived. The gas necessary for a naduvaniye of NPB, does not represent any danger and after a while disappears together with the formed smoke.

All process develops for fractions of a second.

Protective action

Forward NPB protect the driver and the forward passenger at a head-on collision when protective action of one only seat belts appears insufficient. The top and lateral NPB provide protection at lateral collisions. Lateral NPB protect the corresponding lateral parts of a thorax.

On an illustration the main directions of blows to which NPB react are shown

Control lamp of NPB

The lamp signals about readiness of NPB system for work after ignition key turn in situation 1.

The system is ready to work:

The control lamp lights up for some time then dies away.

The system is faulty:

The control lamp does not light up.

Control lamp, having lit up for a while, dies away and again lights up.

In case of malfunction of system there is a danger of that at collision it will not work, even if failure will appear rather heavy.
Immediately address on HUNDRED BMWs for system check.

For the sake of your safety observe given below the instruction concerning safety cushions, differently they cannot execute the protective function completely. Do not forget to inform all your satellites on need of observance of the instructions concerning inflatable safety cushions.

Existence of inflatable safety cushions does not release from need of a pristegivaniye a belt as NPB represent only one of means of ensuring of safety. At insignificant failures, capsizing of the car and at blows in a back part of NPB should not work surely. You will be protected only by a seat belt.

Settle down on a seat as it is more convenient to you, but thus as it is possible further from a steering wheel, the forward panel or a door.

Steering wheel always hold for a rim. In case of NPB operation non-compliance with this rule can lead to traumas of brushes or forearms.
Between a safety cushion and the person protected by it there should not be extraneous subjects. NPB facing for the forward passenger cannot be used as the shelf for things.

Safety facing of a steering wheel, the forward panel and lateral upholstery of lobbies and back doors, and also covers are resistant and edges of facing of a ceiling cannot be pasted over, fitted anything or somehow to alter.

Is inadmissible to strengthen systems of safe transportation of children on a forward passenger seat. Transportation of children is younger than 12 years and less than 150 cm are authorized by growth only on a back seat.

At a car complete set lateral NPB in a back part of salon watch that the children's seat was established correctly and at the maximum distance from a door. Do not allow children to deviate from a seat towards NPB as in case of operation of a pillow serious traumas are possible.

Even at observance of all instructions under certain circumstances receiving injuries of a face, brushes and the forearms caused by operation of inflatable safety cushions is not excluded. Sensitive passengers have zapalny cotton and noise in the course of a naduvaniye of pillows can cause short-term decrease in hearing.
