Child seats - location

Updated 7/23/2018

Always fit child seats/booster cushions in the rear seat if the passenger airbag is activated. If a child is sitting on the front passenger seat then he/she could suffer serious injury if the airbag deploys.

The warning label for the passenger airbag is fitted in one of the following two locations in the car:

Alternative 1: Position of airbag label on passenger side sun visor.

Alternative 1: Position of airbag label on passenger side sun visor.

Alternative 2: Position of airbag label on passenger side door pillar. The label becomes visible when the passenger door is opened.

Alternative 2: Position of airbag label on passenger side door pillar. The label becomes visible when the passenger door is opened.

              

    You may place:

  • a child seat/booster cushion on the front passenger seat provided there is no activated airbag on the front passenger side.
  • one or more child seats/booster cushions in the rear seat.

Warning

Never use a rear-facing child seat on a seat protected by an activated airbag. Failure to follow this advice can lead to death or serious injury to the child.

Warning

Never place a child in a child seat or on a booster cushion in the front seat if the airbag is activated.

Never allow anybody to stand or sit in front of the front passenger seat.

No one shorter than 140 cm should ever sit in the front passenger seat if the airbag is activated.

Failure to follow the advice given above can endanger life.

Warning

Booster cushions/child seats with steel braces or some other design that could rest on the seatbelt buckle's opening button must not be used, as they could cause the seatbelt buckle to open accidentally.

Do not allow the upper section of the child seat to rest against the windscreen.
