Installation on front passenger’s seat
WARNING
Never install a rear-facing child restraint on
the front passenger’s seat when the front pas-
senger’s air bag is available. Supplemental
front-impact air bags inflate with great force.
A rear-facing child restraint could be struck by
the supplemental front-impact air bags in an
accident and could seriously injure or kill your
child.
Never install a child restraint with a top tether
strap on the front seat.
RENAULT recommends that a child restraint be
installed on the rear seat (Double Cab mod-
els). However, if you must install a child re-
straint on the front passenger’s seat, move the
passenger’s seat to the rearmost position.
Child restraints for infants must be used in the
rear-facing direction and therefore must not
be used on the front passenger’s seat when
the front passenger’s air bag is available.

protection provided by the driver’s and passenger’s
seat belts and is not designed to substitute for
them. The SRS can help save lives and reduce seri-
ous injuries. However, inflating air bags may cause
abrasions or other injuries. Air bags do not provide
protection to the lower body. Seat belts should al-
ways be correctly worn and the occupants should
always be seated a suitable distance away from the
steering wheel, instrument panel and door finish-
ers. (See “Seat belts” earlier in this section.) The air
bags inflate quickly in order to help protect the oc-
cupants. The force of the air bags inflating can in-
crease the risk of injury if the occupants are too

close to, or are against, the air bag modules during
inflation. The air bags will deflate quickly after de-
ployment.
The SRS operates only when the ignition switch is
in the ON position.
When the ignition switch is in the ON position, the
SRS air bag warning light illuminates for about 7
seconds and then turns off. This indicates that the
SRS is operational. (See “Warning lights, indicator
lights and audible reminders” in the “2. Instru-
ments and controls” section.)

Safety — seats, seat belts and supplemental restraint system
WARNING
The supplemental front air bags ordinarily will
not inflate in the event of a side impact, rear
impact, rollover, or lower severity frontal colli-
sion. Always wear your seat belts to help re-
duce the risk or severity of injury in various
kinds of accidents.
The seat belts and the supplemental front-im-
pact air bags are most effective when you are
sitting well back and upright in the seat. The
SSS0006Z
SSS0008Z
front-impact air bags inflate with great force.
If you and your passengers are unrestrained,
leaning forward, sitting sideways, or out of po-
sition in any way, you and your passengers are
at greater risk of injury or death in an acci-
dent. You and your passengers may also re-
ceive serious or fatal injuries from the supple-
mental front-impact air bag if you are up
against it when it inflates. Always sit back
against the seatback and as far away as prac-
tical from the steering wheel or instrument
panel. Always use the seat belts.
SSS0007Z
SSS0009Z
Keep hands on the outside of the steering
wheel. Placing them inside the steering wheel
rim could increase the risk of injury if the
supplemental front air bag inflates.
