BMW Seat Belt Repairby Repairmy Srs Owner
After an accident occurs, you should do you part in checking your BMWs Supplemental Restraint System. The SRS helps protect the driver as well as any passengers inside the vehicle when any accident occurs. You may things that this system is just the seat belts and airbags but it consists of much more: the seatbelts, airbags, SRS indicator light. Pretensioner and impact sensors. While airbags are an important part of keeping you safe, the seat belts are actually the first line of defense. Since seat belts are so important, it is good to know how seat belt mechanism works and if you may be in need of BMW Seat Belt Repair. Here is a quick breakdown of how they work.
Your BMWs seat belt webbing is connected to a retractor which also has a spool attached to one end. The retractor has a spring inside of it that applies torque to the spool, causing it to rotate. The seat belt webbing tightens as a result. The vehicles movement can trigger the retractor to fire off which can stop the rotation of the spool using a locking mechanism.The spool can lock when the vehicle decelerates rapidly like when a collision occurs or even when a seat belt is jerked like when trying to pull it out to buckle to fast.
In some newer seat belt systems, a pretensioner works together with the conventional seat belt system to tighten the seat belt. Rather than simply stopping the seat belt from extending further, a pretensioner tightens any slack that may exist. The gas in the pretensioner flares when an accident occurs which causes the pressure to build up inside. This rotates the retractor, putting the occupant securely into their seat helping minimize further damage. However, if the force of the impact is strong enough, the locking of the seat belt is not enough. Sometimes, the individual may end up stretching the seat belt when it locks, and can hit what is in front of him, it being a steering wheel or something else. This is why it is a good idea to drive with your hands at the 10 and 2 o’clock position rather than the 11 & 1 o’clock. If you are wearing a watch or ring(s) and your head hits it, their may be more damage.
