Lexus customers who find it necessary to increase the length of their seat belts may now
obtain Seat Belt Extenders at no cost through their local Lexus dealer.

The extender is available in black only in the lengths of 6’’, 9’’, 12’’, 15’’ and 18’’.

Customers must visit a Lexus Dealership for the required measurements and to complete an
application form. The dealer should forward the form to the Lexus National Customer Satis-
faction Department for order processing (see page 6). Additional application forms are avail-
able through the Lexus Area Offices or the Material Distribution Center Non–Parts Ordering
System (MDC NPM) via part number 00241–00005.

 Precaution when using the seat belt extenders:

 1. Never use the seat belt extender if you can fasten the seat belt without it.

 2. Remember that the extender provided for you may not be safe when used on a different
    vehicle, or for another person and at a different seating position than specified.

 3. When the seat belt extender is provided for a rear seat position (with automatic locking
    retractor), make sure the retractor is locked when in use.

 4. FAILURE TO FOLLOW THESE INSTRUCTIONS COULD RESULT IN A LESS EFFECTIVE
    SEAT BELT RESTRAINT SYSTEM IN CASE OF A VEHICLE ACCIDENT, CAUSING
    PERSONAL INJURY.

 Using The Seat Belt Extender:

 1. Connect the extender to the seat belt by inserting the tab into the seat belt buckle so that
    the buckle–release buttons of the extender and the seat belt are located on the same side
    as shown. You will hear a click when the tab properly locks into the buckle.


 2. MAKE SURE THAT THE CONNECTION IS SECURE AND THE SEAT BELT EXTENDER IS NOT
    TWISTED.


 3. When releasing the seat belt, press on the buckle–release button on the extender, not on
    the seat belt. This helps prevent damage to the vehicle interior and extender itself.




 4. When not in use, remove the extender and store in the vehicle for future use.

 OWNER’S MANUAL TEXT:
                                       SEAT BELT EXTENDER
 If your seat belt cannot be fastened securely because it is not long enough, a personalized seat
 belt extender is available from your Lexus dealer free of charge.

 Please contact your local Lexus dealer so that the dealer can order an extender of the proper
 required length. Bring the heaviest coat you expect to wear for proper measurement and selec-
 tion of length. Additional ordering information is available at your Lexus dealer.

 CAUTION:
 When using the seat belt extender, observe the following. Failure to follow these instructions
 could result in a less effective seat belt restraint system in case of a vehicle accident, increasing
 the chance of personal injury.

  D Never use the seat belt extender if you can fasten the seat belt without it.

  D Remember that the extender provided for you may not be safe when used on a different
    vehicle, or for another person or at different seating positions than specified.




 To connect the extender to the seat belt, insert the tab into the seat belt buckle so that
 the buckle release buttons of the extender and the seat belt are both facing outward as
 shown.
 You will hear a click when the tab locks into the buckle. When releasing the seat belt, press on
 the buckle–release button on the extender, not on the seat belt. This helps prevent damage to
 the vehicle interior and extender itself.
 When not in use, remove the extender and store in the vehicle for future use.
 CAUTION:
 After inserting the tab, make sure that the connection is secure and the seat belt
 extender is not twisted.
