If you suspect that your tensioner needs to be replaced and are sold on sending it to Seat Belt Restore, but you don’t know for sure, and are confused about what exactly a tensioner is and does, it’s best to determine that before purchasing the service. And it really is quite simple. A seat belt buckle pretensioner is the female part of the seat belt where the seat belt latch buckles into, also commonly known as the “buckle”. Whereas some seat belt buckles do not come with a gas charge, some do and this serves as a secondary restraint. A gas charge is a small explosive mechanism engineered into the seat belt that goes off when an accident or collision occurs. Many cars only have a gas charge in the seat belt retractor, but some also have them in the buckles. If it went off, that determines that you need to repair your seat belt buckle pretensioner. You can either scan your system with an OBD airbag scanning tool or visually inspect the buckle to see if your buckle pretensioner is bad. It will appear compressed and/or “squished” in.
