Subaru Outback: Seatbelt maintenance

To clean the seatbelts, use a mild soap and lukewarm water. Never bleach or dye the belts because this could seriously affect their strength.

Inspect the seatbelts and attachments including the webbing and all hardware periodically for cracks, cuts, gashes, tears, damage, loose bolts or worn areas. Replace the seatbelts even if only minor damage is found.

CAUTION

● Keep the belts free of polishes, oils, chemicals and particularly battery acid.

● Never attempt to make modifications or changes that will prevent the seatbelt from operating properly.
