Seats, restraints

Airbag deactivation

The front passenger airbag system

must be deactivated if a child restraint

system is to be fitted on this seat. The

side airbag and curtain airbag

systems, the belt pretensioners and

all driver airbag systems will remain

active.

The front passenger airbag system

can be deactivated via a key-

operated switch on the passenger

side of the instrument panel.

Use the ignition key to choose the

position:
*OFF : front passenger airbag is

deactivated and will not

inflate in the event of a

collision. Control indicator

*OFF 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

ON : 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 stopped with the ignition off.
Status remains until the next change.

Child restraints

Child restraint systems

We recommend the Opel child

restraint system which is tailored

specifically to the vehicle.
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

When using a child restraint

system on the front passenger

seat, the airbag systems for the

front passenger seat must be

deactivated; if not, the triggering of

the airbags poses a risk of fatal

injury to the child.
This is especially the case if rear-

facing child restraint systems are

used on the front passenger seat.

Airbag deactivation 3 54.
Airbag label 3 51.

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.

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

56

Seats, restraints

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 affix 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.

ISOFIX child restraint systems

Fasten vehicle-approved ISOFIX

child restraint systems to the ISOFIX

mounting brackets. Specific vehicle

ISOFIX child restraint system

positions are marked in the table by

IL.
ISOFIX mounting brackets are

indicated by a label on the backrest.

Top-tether anchors

Depending on country specific

equipment, the vehicle might have

two or three anchors.
Top-Tether anchors are marked with

the symbol : for a child seat.

On Notchback version, open the flap

of the required fastening eye on the

placement area behind the head

restraints, marked by the child seat

symbol.

On hatchback version, anchors are

on the backside of the rear seats.
In addition to the ISOFIX mounting,

fasten the Top-Tether strap to the

Top-Tether anchors.
ISOFIX child restraint systems of

universal category positions are

marked in the table by IUF.
