Once your Jeep has been in a collision or other accident, it is important to check both the external components of your vehicle as well as the internal for any damage. Example of things to look at are the bumper, windows, motor, and the supplemental restraint system. The SRS has the job of protecting those in the vehicle when on the road. It consists of the seatbelts, airbags, SRS indicator light and impact sensors. The seatbelts are the most important aspect of the system, working together with the remaining components to protect the individual. After an accident, you may be in need of Jeep Seat Belt Repair.
The seat belt has many parts to it. The webbing is what we interact with the most. It is connected to a retractor that has a spool. A spring inside the retractor applies torque to the spool, causing it to rotate, tightening the webbing. The retractor, triggered by the vehicles movement, can stop the rotation of the spool using a locking mechanism. The spool locks when the vehicle decelerates rapidly like when a collision occurs. Similarly, the spool also locks if the seat belt webbing gets jerked.
In some newer seat belt systems, a pretensioner works together with the conventional seat belt system to tighten the seat belt. A pretensioner tightens any slack that may exist rather than just stopping the belt from extending further. The gas in the pretensioner flares when an accident occurs causing the pressure to build up. This in turn rotates the retractor, putting the occupant firmly into their seat and helping minimize the damage that person may receive during the accident. However, this may cause the seat belt webbing to stretch to the point where it would need to get replaced.
Aside from getting stretched during an accident, the seat belt webbing can rip, get frayed, or just be in bad condition from general wear and tear.
