Seats, restraints

The front passenger airbag system

can be deactivated via a key-

operated switch on the right side of

the instrument panel.

Use the ignition key to choose the

position:
*

: front passenger airbag is

deactivated and will not inflate in

the event of a collision. Control

indicator * illuminates

continuously in the centre

console. A child restraint

system can be installed in

accordance with the chart Child

restraint installation locations

3

 57. No adult person is

allowed to occupy the front

passenger seat

V

: front passenger airbag is active.

A child restraint system must

not be installed

9 Danger

Risk of fatal injury for a child using

a child restraint system on a seat

with activated front passenger

airbag.
Risk of fatal injury for an adult

person on a seat with deactivated

front passenger airbag.

If the control indicator V illuminates

for approx. 60 seconds after the

ignition is switched on, the front

passenger airbag system will inflate

in the event of a collision.
If both control indicators are

illuminated at the same time, there is

a system failure. The status of the

system is not discernible, therefore

no person is allowed to occupy the

front passenger seat. Contact a

workshop immediately.
Change status only when the vehicle

is stationary with the ignition off.
Status remains until the next change.

deactivation 3 95.

Child restraints

Child restraint systems

We recommend the Opel child

restraint system DUO which is

tailored specifically to the vehicle.
When using the Opel child restraint

system DUO, move the rear outboard

seats into position 2 3 42. We

recommend fastening the Opel child

restraint system DUO by using the

following securing systems in

combination:
ISOFIX

Three-point seat belt

Top-Tether

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

56

Seats, restraints

When a child restraint system is being

used, pay attention to the following

usage and installation instructions

and also those supplied with the child

restraint system.
Always comply with local or national

regulations. In some countries, the

use of child restraint systems is

forbidden on certain seats.

9 Warning

If using a child restraint system on

the front passenger seat, the

airbag system for the front

passenger seat must be

deactivated; if not, the triggering of

the front airbag poses a risk of fatal

injury to the child.
This is especially the case if

rearfacing child restraint systems

are used on the front passenger

seat.

Airbag deactivation 3 53,
Airbag label 3 49.

Selecting the right system

The rear seats are the most

convenient location to fasten a child

restraint system.
Children should travel facing

rearwards in the vehicle as long as

possible. This makes sure that the

child's backbone, which is still very

weak, is under less strain in the event

of an accident.
Suitable are restraint systems that

comply with valid UN ECE

regulations. Check local laws and

regulations for mandatory use of child

restraint systems.
Ensure that the child restraint system

to be installed is compatible with the

vehicle type.
Ensure that the mounting location of

the child restraint system within the

vehicle is correct, see following

tables.
Allow children to enter and exit the

vehicle only on the side facing away

from the traffic.
When the child restraint system is not

in use, secure the seat with a seat belt

or remove it from the vehicle.

Note

Do not stick anything on the child

restraint systems and do not cover

them with any other materials.
A child restraint system which has

been subjected to stress in an

accident must be replaced.

9 Warning

It is only permissible to fit objects

to the rear carrier system if the

system has been correctly

engaged. If the rear carrier system

will not engage correctly, do not fit

objects to the system and slide the

system back. Seek the assistance

noticeable.

The rear carrier system is locked

when the clamping levers are

swivelled by approx. 50°. Otherwise

safe functionality is not guaranteed.

Note

Close the tailgate.

Unfold the number plate holder

Unfold the holder for the number

plate.
Affix the number plate before first

depth is 14.4 mm.

Rotate the left pedal (without a chain

cog) vertically downwards. The pedal

on the left pedal crank must be

horizontal.
The front bicycle must have its front

wheel facing left.
The rear bicycle must have its front

wheel facing right.

Attaching a bicycle to the rear

carrier system

With the rotary lever on the pedal

crank recess, roughly adapt the

adjustable pedal crank unit to the

protrusion of the pedal crank.
If the bicycle has straight pedal

cranks, unscrew the pedal crank unit

completely (position 5).

If the bicycle has curved pedal

cranks, screw in the pedal crank unit

all the way (position 1).

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Storage

69

Put on the bicycle. The pedal crank

here must be placed in the pedal

crank recess opening as shown in the

illustration.

Caution

Make sure that the pedal does not

touch the surface of the rear end

carrier. Otherwise the crankset

might be damaged during the

transport.

Insert pedal crank mount into outer

rail of each pedal crank recess from

above and slide downwards until at

least underneath the notching.

Attach the pedal crank by rotating the

attachment screw on the pedal crank

mount.

Place the wheel recesses so that the

bicycle is roughly horizontal. Here,

the distance between the pedals and

the tailgate should be at least 5 cm.
Both bicycle tyres must be in the

wheel recesses.

Caution

Make sure to pull out the wheel

recesses as far as necessary to

have both bicycle tyres placed in

the recesses. Otherwise a

horizontal mounting of the bicycle

is not ensured. Disregard could

lead to damage of the bicycle

wheels caused by hot exhaust

fumes.
