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

The seatbelts and airbags interact. If the belt is not used or is used incorrectly, this may diminish the protection provided by the airbag in the event of a collision.

To minimise the risk of injury if the airbag deploys, passengers must sit as upright as possible with their feet on the floor and backs against the backrest. Seatbelts must be secured.

Warning

Do not put objects in front of or above the dashboard where the passenger airbag is located.

Warning

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

Never use a rear-facing child seat on the front passenger seat if the passenger airbag is activated.

Front-facing passengers (children and adults) must never sit on the front passenger seat if the passenger airbag is deactivated.

Failure to follow the advice given above can endanger life or lead to serious personal injury.

Switch - PACOS*

The front passenger airbag can be deactivated if the car is equipped with a switch, PACOS (Passenger Airbag Cut Off Switch).

Warning

Activated airbag (passenger seat):

Never use a rear-facing child seat on the front passenger seat when the passenger airbag is activated.

Deactivated airbag (passenger seat):

Front-facing passengers (children and adults) must never sit on the front passenger seat when the passenger airbag is deactivated.

Failure to follow the advice given above can endanger life or lead to serious personal injury.

Warning

If the car is equipped with a front passenger airbag, but does not have a PACOS switch (Passenger Airbag Cut Off Switch), then the airbag will always be activated.
