Mercedes-Benz C-Class (W205) 2015 - 2021 Owners Manual: Protection provided by the seat belt

Always fasten your seat belt correctly before starting a journey. A seat belt can only provide the best level of protection if it is worn correctly.

WARNING Risk of injury or death due to incorrectly fastened seat belt
If the seat belt is not worn correctly, it cannot perform its intended protective function.

In addition, an incorrectly fastened seat belt can also cause injuries, for example, in the event of an accident or when braking or changing direction suddenly.

  • Always ensure that all vehicle occupants have their seat belts fastened correctly and are sitting properly.

Always observe the instructions about the correct driver's seat position and adjusting the seat.

In order for the correctly worn seat belt to provide the intended level of protection, each vehicle occupant must observe the following information:

  • The seat belt must not be twisted and must fit tightly and snugly across the body.
  • The seat belt must be routed across the center of the shoulder and as low down across the hips as possible.
  • The shoulder section of the seat belt should not touch your neck nor be routed under your arm or behind your back.
  • Avoid wearing bulky clothing, e.g. a winter coat.
  • Push the lap belt down as far as possible across your hips and pull tight with the shoulder section of the belt. Never route the lap belt across your abdomen.
  • Never route the seat belt across sharp, pointed, abrasive or fragile objects.
  • Only one person should use each seat belt at any one time. Never allow babies and children to travel sitting on the lap of another vehicle occupant.
  • Never secure objects with a seat belt if the seat belt is also being used by one of the vehicle's occupants. Always observe the instructions for loading the vehicle when securing objects, luggage or loads.

    Also ensure that no objects, e.g. a cushion, are ever placed between a person and the seat.

The seat belts on the following seats are equipped with a special seat belt retractor:

  • front-passenger seat
  • Rear seats

Activate or deactivate the special seatbelt retractor.

If children are traveling in the vehicle, be sure to observe the instructions and safety notes on "Children in the vehicle".
