    justable. It should always be adjustable to the
    correct length.

    To lengthen, angle the buckle as shown in the
    illustration and pull the belt through.

    To shorten, pull the upper part of the double
    webbing until snug.

    Check perodically that the anchor bolts are
    secure and the belt in good condition.

    Use water and a mild detergent for cleaning.

    As the seat belts lose much of their strength
    when exposed to violent stretching, they
    should be replaced after collision, even
    though they may appear to be undamaged.

    Never modify or repair the belt on your own.
    but have this done by a Volvo workshop.
