Child seat positioning

Vehicles with under floor storage

WARNINGS:
When you are using a child seat with a support leg, make sure that you install the foam spacer correctly inside the storage compartment and that you position the cover correctly.

If the foam spacer is damaged or missing, remove the storage compartment cover and extend the leg to the base of the compartment.

All vehicles

WARNING:
When fitting a child seat using the vehicle seat belts make sure the belts are not slack.

CAUTION:
When using a child seat on a rear seat, make sure that the child seat rests tightly against the vehicle seat.

It may be necessary to lift or remove the head restraint. See Head restraints.

Note: When using a child seat on a front seat, it may prove difficult to tighten the lap section of the seat belt without slack remaining. If this is the case, adjust the seatback to the fully upright position and raise the height of the seat. See Seats.
