Adjust the height of the safety belt so that it runs across the middle of the shoulder, not against the neck.

Cleaning the safety belts
If it becomes necessary to clean the belts, you can use any mild washing agent. Allow the belts to dry prior to retracting, but avoid direct sunlight.
The airbags in combination with the safety belts make up a safety system which offers the driver and the passenger the greatest known protection from injuries in case of accident.
Your vehicle is equipped with a weight sensing system for the front passenger's seat in accordance with U.S. Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard 208.
Even if your vehicle is equipped with airbags, the safety belts must be worn at all times, because the front airbag system is only deployed by frontal collisions with an impact of sufficient severity.
Below the deployment threshold of the airbag system, and during types of collisions which do not cause the actuation of the system, the safety belts provide the primary protection to the occupants when correctly worn.
Therefore, all persons within the vehicle must wear safety belts at all times (in many states, state law requires the use of safety belts).
The front airbags are located under the padded steering wheel panel on the driver's side and, on the passenger's side, in the dashboard.
The side airbags for the front seats are installed on the side in the seat backrests.
The head airbags are installed in the door linings.
Safety Belts and Positioning
Airbags only can offer protection, if all occupants fasten their safety belts and retain a proper sitting position. Objects and load have to be stored securely.
To provide optimal occupant protection, airbags must inflate at very high speed. If you are not wearing your safety belt or are too close to the air bag when it is deployed, inflating airbags can result in serious personal injury or death.
Safe Storage of Objects
Objects and load have to be stored securely to keep from causing injury.
