CHILD SAFETY: choosing a child/baby seat mounting 

(1/2)

There are two ways of attaching child 

seats: via the seat belt or using the 

ISOFIX system.

Attachment via the seat belt

The seat belt must be adjusted to 

ensure that it is effective in the event of 

harsh braking or an impact.

Ensure that the strap paths indicated 

by the child seat manufacturer are re-

spected.

Always check that the seat belt is cor-

rectly fastened by pulling it up, then 

pulling it out fully whilst pressing on the 

child seat.

Check that the seat is correctly held by 

moving it from side to side and back 

to front: the seat should remain firmly 

fixed.

Check that the child seat has not been 

installed at an angle and that it is not 

resting against a window.

Do not use the child seat 

if it may unfasten the seat 

belt restraining it: the base 

of the seat must not rest on 

the buckle and/or catch of the seat 

belt.

The seat belt must never 

be twisted or the tension 

relieved. Never pass the 

shoulder strap under the 

arm or behind the back.

Check that the seat belt has not 

been damaged by sharp edges.

If the seat belt does not operate nor-

mally, it will not protect the child. 

Consult an approved dealer. Do not 

use this seat until the seat belt has 

been repaired.

No modifications may be 

made to the component 

parts of the restraint system 

(seat belts, ISOFIX and 

seats and their mountings) originally 

fitted.

Attachment using the ISOFIX 

system
Authorised ISOFIX child seats are ap-

proved in accordance with regulation 

ECE-R44 in one of the three following 

cases:

–  ISOFIXuniversal 3-point forward-fac-

ing seat;

–  ISOFIXsemi-universal 2-point seat;

– specific.
For the latter two, check that your child 

seat can be installed by consulting the 

list of compatible vehicles.
Attach the child seat with the ISOFIX 

locks, if these are provided. The ISOFIX 

system allows quick, easy, safe fitting.
The ISOFIX system consists of 2 rings 

and, in some cases, a third ring.

Before using an ISOFIX 

child seat that you pur-

chased for another vehicle, 

check that its installation is 

authorised. Consult the list of ve-

hicles which can be fitted with the 

seat from the equipment manufac-

turer.

1.35

CHILD SAFETY: choosing a child/baby seat mounting 

(2/2)

The two rings 1 are located between 

the seatback and the seat base of the 

seat and are identified by a marking.
The third ring 4 is used to attach the 

upper strap on some child seats.

Rear seats

The  2 belt should be positioned be-

tween the seatback and the rear parcel 

shelf. To do this, remove the rear parcel 

shelf (refer to the information on the 

“Rear parcel shelf” in Section 3). Attach 

the hook to one of the 4 rings, identi-
fied using the 

 symbol. Depending 

on the vehicle, unclip cover 3 from the 

mobile floor to access the ring.

2

Check that the seatback 

of the forward-facing child 

seat is in contact with the 

back of the vehicle seat. 

In this case, the child seat may not 

always rest on the base of the vehi-

cle seat.

1

The ISOFIX anchorage points have been exclusively designed for child 

seats with the ISOFIX system. Never fit a different type of child seat, seat 

belt or other objects to these anchorage points.

Check that nothing is obstructing the anchorage points.

If your vehicle has been involved in a road accident, have the ISOFIX anchorage 

points checked and replace your child seat.

Pull the belt 2 so that the back of the 

child seat comes into contact with the 

vehicle seatback.

CHILD SAFETY: fitting a child seat, general information 

(1/2)

Some seats are not suitable for fitting 

child seats. The diagram on the follow-

ing page shows you how to attach a 

child seat.
The types of child seat indicated may 

not be available. Before using a differ-

ent child seat, check with the manufac-

turer that it can be fitted.

Ensure that the child seat 

or the child’s feet do not 

prevent the front seat from 

locking correctly. Refer to 

the information on the “Front seat” 

in Section 1.

Check that when installing the child 

seat in the vehicle it is not at risk of 

coming loose from its base.

If you have to remove the headrest, 

check that it is correctly stored so 

that it does not come loose under 

harsh braking or impact.

Always attach the child seat to the 

vehicle even if it is not in use so that 

it does not come loose under harsh 

braking or impact.

RISK OF DEATH OR 

SERIOUS INJURY: Before 

installing a child seat on the 

front passenger seat, check 

that the airbag has been deacti-

vated (please refer to “Child safety: 

front passenger airbag deactivation 

and activation” in Section 1).

In the front seat
The laws concerning children travel-

ling in the front passenger seat differ in 

every country. Consult the legislation in 

force and follow the indications on the 

diagram on the following page.
Before fitting a child seat in this seat (if 

authorised):
–  lower the seat belt as far as possible;
–  move the seat as far back as possi-

ble;

–  gently tilt the seatback away from 

vertical (approximately 25°);

–  on equipped vehicles, raise the seat 

base as far as possible.

In all situations, reinsert the headrest to 

its full extent so that it does not interfere 

with the child seat (see the information 

on “Front headrests” in Section 1);

After installing the child seat, if neces-

sary, the seat may be advanced (so as 

to leave enough space in the rear seats 

for passengers or other child seats). 

For a rear-facing child seat, do not let 

it touch the dashboard or move it to the 

furthest forward position.
Do not change other settings after in-

stalling the child seat.

1.37

Rear centre seat
Check that the belt is suitable for secu-

ring your child seat. Consult an appro-

ved dealer.

Fit the child seat in a rear 

seat wherever possible.

In the rear side seat
A carrycot can be installed across the 

vehicle and will take up at least two 

seats.

Position the child with their feet nearest 

the door.

Move the front seat as far forward as 

possible to install a rear-facing child 

seat, then move back the seat in front 

as far as it will go, although without al-

lowing it to come into contact with the 

child seat.
For the safety of the child in the for-

ward-facing seat, do not move the seat 

in front back past the middle of the 

runner, do not tilt the seatback too far 

(maximum of 25°) and raise the seat as 

much as possible.
In all situations, remove the rear head-

rests (refer to the information on the 

“Rear headrests” in Section 3). This 

must be done before fitting the child 

seat.
Check that the forward-facing child seat 

is resting against the back of the vehi-

cle seat.

CHILD SAFETY: fitting a child seat, general information 

(2/2)

A child seat with floor sup-

ports must never be ins-

talled on the rear centre 

seat. RISK OF DEATH OR 

SERIOUS INJURY.

CHILD SAFETY: deactivating/activating the front passenger air bag 

(1/3)

Deactivating the front 

passenger airbags

(on equipped vehicles)
You  must deactivate the passenger 

airbag before fitting a child seat on the 

front passenger seat.

To deactivate the  airbags: with the 

vehicle stopped and the ignition off

push and turn lock 1 to the OFF posi-

tion.
With the ignition on, you must check 

that the warning light 

¹

 on the dis-

play 2 is lit up and, depending on the 

vehicle, that the message “airbag pas-

senger deactivated” is displayed.
This light remains permanently lit to 

let you know that you can fit a child 

seat.

2

The passenger air bag must 

only be deactivated or acti-

vated with the ignition off.

If it is interfered with when 

the vehicle is being driven, indicator 

lights 

å

 and 

©

 will come 

on.

Switch the ignition off then on again 

to reset the air bag in accordance 

with the lock.

DANGER
Since operation of the front 

passenger airbag is not 

compatible with the position 

of a rear-facing child seat, NEVER 

fit a restraint system for a rear-fac-

ing child in a seat protected by an 

ACTIVATED front AIRBAG. This 

can cause the CHILD’S DEATH or 

SERIOUS INJURY.
