METHODS OF RESTRAINT IN ADDITION TO THE FRONT SEAT BELTS 

(3/6)

Operation

This system is only operational when 

the ignition is switched on.
In a severe frontal impact, the airbags  

inflate rapidly, cushioning the impact  

of the driver's head and chest against  

the steering wheel and of the front pas- 

senger against the dashboard. The air  

bags then deflate immediately so that  

the passengers are not in any way hin- 

dered from leaving the vehicle.

Operating faults

å

  This warning light will light up  

on the instrument panel when the igni- 

tion is switched on and then go out after  

a few seconds.
If it does not light up when the ignition 

is switched on, or comes on when the 

engine is running, there is a fault in the 

system.
Contact your approved Dealer as soon 

as possible.
Your protection will be reduced until this 

fault is rectified.

METHODS OF RESTRAINT IN ADDITION TO THE FRONT SEAT BELTS 

(6/6)

Warnings concerning the driver’s airbag

– Do not modify the steering wheel or the steering wheel boss.
– Do not cover the steering wheel boss under any circumstances.

–  Do not attach any objects (badge, logo, clock, telephone holder, etc.) to the steering wheel boss.
–  The steering wheel must not be removed (except by qualified personnel from our Network).
–  Do not sit too close to the steering wheel: adopt a driving position whereby your arms are slightly folded 

 1.41. This will  

allow sufficient space for the airbag to deploy correctly and be fully effective.

Warnings concerning the passenger airbag

–  Do not attach or glue any objects (badge, logo, clock, telephone holder, etc.) to the dashboard on or near the airbag.
–  Do not place anything between the dashboard and the passenger (pet, umbrella, walking stick, parcels, etc.).
–  The passenger must not put his or her feet on the dashboard or seat as there is a risk that serious injuries may occur. In 

general, parts of the body should be kept away from the dashboard (knees, hands, head, etc.).

–  The devices in addition to the front passenger seat belt should be reactivated as soon as a child seat is removed, to ensure 

the protection of the passenger in the event of an impact.

A REAR-FACING CHILD SEAT MUST NOT BE FITTED TO THE FRONT PASSENGER SEAT UNLESS THE  

RESTRAINT SYSTEMS IN ADDITION TO THE FRONT PASSENGER SEATBELT ARE DEACTIVATED

 

 1.71.

Warnings concerning the anti-submarining 

airbag

Do not let a child under the age of 12 sit in this seat. When triggered, the anti-submarining airbag may project objects left on  

the seat base with a great deal of force.

Risk of serious injury.

All of the warnings below are given so that the airbag

 

is not obstructed in any way when it is inflated and also to prevent  

the risk of serious injuries caused by items which may be dislodged when it inflates.

Force limiter

Above a certain severity of impact, this 

mechanism is used to limit the force of 

the belt against the body so that it is at 

an acceptable level.

–  Have the entire restraint  

system checked following  

an accident.

– No operation whatsoever  

is permitted on any part of the  

system (airbags, electronic units,  

wiring) and the system compo- 

nents must not be reused on any  

other vehicle, even if identical.

–  Only qualified personnel from our  

Network may work on the airbags;  

otherwise the system may trigger  

accidentally and cause injury.

side protection

SIDE PROTECTION DEVICES

Warning relating to the side 

airbag

– 

Fitting seat covers:

 seats equipped with an airbag require covers spe- 

cifically designed for your vehicle. Contact an approved dealer to find  

out if these covers are available. The use of any covers other than those  

designed for your vehicle (including those designed for another vehicle) may  

affect the operation of the airbags and reduce your protection.

–  Do not place any accessories, objects or even pets between the seatback, the  

door and the internal fittings. Do not cover the seatback with objects such as  

clothes or accessories. This may prevent the airbag from operating correctly or  

cause injury when the airbag is deployed.

–  No work or modification whatsoever may be carried out on the seat or internal 

fittings, except by qualified personnel from an approved dealer.

–  The space between the seatback of the rear bench seat and the trim is the  

area of airbag operation: no objects must be placed here.

Side 

Airbags

This airbag is fitted to the front seats,  

activated at the sides of the seats (door  

side) to protect the occupants in the  

event of a severe side impact.

Depending on the vehicle, a mark- 

ing on the windscreen informs you  

of the presence of additional means  

of restraint (airbags, pretensioners,  

etc.) in the passenger compartment.

Dispositifs de retenue complémentaire (X10 - Renault)

 

ADDITIONAL METHODS OF RESTRAINT

The airbag is designed to complement the action of the seat belt. Both the airbag and the seat belt are integral parts  

of the same protection system. It is therefore essential to wear seat belts at all times. If seat belts are not worn, the oc- 

cupants are exposed to the risk of serious injury in the event of an accident. It may also increase the risk of minor su- 

perficial injuries occurring when the airbag is deployed, although such minor injuries are always possible with airbags.

If the vehicle should overturn or suffer a rear impact, however severe, the pretensioners and airbags are not always triggered.  

Shocks to the underbody of the vehicle, from pavements, potholes, stones etc. can all trigger these systems.
–  Work and modifications on the complete airbag system (airbags, pretensioners, ECU, wiring harness, etc.), are 

strictly pro- 

hibited

 (except by qualified Network personnel).

–  To ensure that the system is in good working order and to avoid accidental triggering of the system which may cause injury,  

only qualified Network personnel may work on the airbag system.

–  As a safety precaution, have the airbag system checked if your vehicle has been involved in an accident, or is stolen or  

broken into.

–  When selling or lending the vehicle, inform the user of these points and hand over this driver’s handbook with the vehicle.
–  When scrapping your vehicle, contact your approved dealer for disposal of the gas generator(s).

All of the warnings below are given so that the airbag

 

is not obstructed in any way when it is inflated and also to prevent  

the risk of serious injuries caused by items which may be dislodged when it inflates.

Child safety: general information

CHILD SAFETY: General information 

(1/2)

Carrying children

Please ensure that you comply with the  

legislation of your country.
Children, and adults, must be correctly 

seated and strapped in for all journeys. 

The children being carried in your vehi- 

cle are your responsibility.
A child is not a miniature adult. Children 

are at risk of specific injuries as their 

muscles and bones have not yet fin- 

ished growing. The seat belt alone 

would not provide suitable protection. 

Use an approved child seat and ensure 

you use it correctly.

A collision at 30 mph (50 

km/h) is the same as fall- 

ing a distance of 10 metres. 

Transporting a child without 

a restraint is the equivalent of allow- 

ing him or her to play on a fourth-

floor balcony without railings.
Never travel with a child held in your  

arms. In the event of an accident,  

you will not be able to keep hold of  

the child, even if you yourself are  

wearing a seat belt.

If your vehicle has been involved in 

a road accident, replace the child 

seat and have the seat belts and 

ISOFIX anchorage points checked.

To prevent the doors being  

opened, use the “Child lock”  

feature. 

 1.31.

Driver’s responsibility 

when parking or stopping 

the vehicle

Never leave an animal, 

child or adult who is not self-suffi- 

cient alone on your vehicle, even for 

a short time.
They may pose a risk to themselves 

or to others by starting the engine, 

activating equipment such as the 

electric windows or by locking the 

doors.
Also, in hot and/or sunny weather, 

please remember that the tempera- 

ture inside the passenger compart- 

ment increases very quickly.

RISK OF DEATH OR SERIOUS 

INJURY.

Before fitting a child seat, read the 

manual and respect its instructions. If 

you experience any difficulties during 

installation, contact the manufacturer 

of the equipment. Keep the instructions 

with the seat.

CHILD SAFETY: General information 

(2/2)

Set a good example by always fas- 

tening your seat belt and teaching 

your child:

–  to strap themselves in correctly;

–  to always get in and out of the car 

at the kerb, away from busy traf- 

fic.

Do not use a second-hand child  

seat or one without an instruction  

manual.
Check that there are no objects in 

the vicinity of the child seat which 

could impede its operation.

Never leave a child unat- 

tended in the vehicle.
Check that your child is  

always strapped in and that  

the belt or safety harness used is  

correctly set and adjusted. Avoid  

wearing bulky clothing which could  

cause the belts to slacken 

 1.41.

Never let your child put their head or 

arms out of the window.
Check that the child is in the correct 

position for the entire journey, espe- 

cially if asleep.

Using a child seat

The level of protection offered by the  

child seat depends on its ability to re- 

strain your child and on its installation.  

Incorrect installation compromises the  

protection it offers the child in the event  

of harsh braking or an impact.
Before purchasing a child seat, check 

that it complies with the regulations for 

the country you are in and that it can 

be fitted in your vehicle. Consult an ap- 

proved dealer to find out which seats 

are recommended for your vehicle.
The regulations on transporting children  

are specific to each country. The use of  

a child seat depends on the age and/or  

the size and/or weight of the child.
For children who do not need to be  

transported in a child seat, make sure  

that the seat belt is correctly adjusted  

and fastened.
In all cases, you must comply with the  

regulations of the particular country you  

are in.

Sécurité enfants : choix du siège enfant (X10 - Renault)

 

CHILD SAFETY: choosing a child seat

Rear-facing child seats

A baby’s head is, proportionally, heavier  

than that of an adult and its neck is very  

fragile. Transport the child in this po- 

sition for as long as possible (until the  

age of 2 at the very least). It supports  

both the head and the neck.
Choose a bucket type seat for best side  

protection and change it as soon as the  

child’s head is higher than the shell.

Forward-facing child seats

Up to 18 kg or 4 years, the child may  

travel on a forward-facing seat. Choose  

your seat according the child’s size:  

their head and abdomen are the areas  

which must be most protected. A for- 

ward-facing child seat which is firmly  

attached to the vehicle will reduce the  

risk of impact to the head. Ensure your  

child travels in a forward-facing seat  

with a harness for as long as their size  

permits.
Choose a bucket type seat for optimum  

side protection.

Booster cushions

From 15 kg or 4 years, the child can  

travel using a booster seat, which will  

enable the seat belt to be adapted  

to suit his/her size and shape. The  

booster seat cushion must be fitted with  

guides to position the seat belt on the  

child’s thighs rather than the stomach.  

It is recommended that you use a seat- 

back fitted with a belt strap guide which  

can be adjusted in terms of height to  

position the seat belt in the centre of the  

shoulder. It must never rest on the neck  

or on the arm.
Choose a bucket type seat for optimum  

side protection.

Choosing a child seat mounting

CHILD SAFETY: choosing a child seat mounting 

(1/3)

There are two ways of attaching child 

seats: via the seat belt or using the 

ISOFIX system.

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.

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.

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.

No modifications may be 

made to the component 

parts of the restraint system 

(ISOFIX seat belts, seats 

and their mountings) originally fitted.

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.

Attachment using the ISOFIX 

system

Authorised ISOFIX child seats are ap-

proved in accordance with regulation 

ECE-R44 in one of the three following 

scenarios:

–  universal ISOFIX 3-point forward- 

facing seat;

–  semi-universal ISOFIX 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.

1.61

ENG_UD72624_2

Sécurité enfants : choix de la fixation du siège enfant (X10 - Renault)

 

The third ring is used to attach the  

upper strap on some child seats: you  

must

 attach hook

 to ring 

3

 for a rear  

seat and ring 

4

 for a front seat.

CHILD SAFETY: choosing a child seat mounting 

(3/3)

The child seat strap 

must

  

be attached to the corre- 

sponding ring.

Check that the seatback  

of the forward-facing child  

seat is in contact with the  

seatback of the vehicle 

 

seat. In this case, the child seat may  

not always rest on the seat base of  

the vehicle seat.

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 so that the back of the child  

seat comes into contact with the back  

of the vehicle seat.

Note:

 it is 

essential

 to use the rings  

marked with the symbol

CHILD SAFETY: fitting a child seat: general information 

(1/2)

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.

After installing the child seat, when this  

is possible, you can move the vehi- 

cle seat forward if necessary (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 these settings after the 

child seat is installed.

RISK OF DEATH OR 

 

SERIOUS INJURY:

 before  

fitting a rear-facing child  

seat in this seat, make sure  

that the airbag has been deacti- 

vated 

 1.71.

Fit the child seat in a rear 

seat wherever possible.
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.

1.63

ENG_UD80760_2

Sécurité enfants : installation du siège enfant (X10 - Renault)

 

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 his or her  

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.
Always remove the headrest from the  

rear seat on which the child seat is  

positioned. 

 3.23. If necessary, posi- 

tion the rear seat as far back as pos- 

sible. This must be done before fitting  

the child seat. Check that the child seat  

is resting against the back of the rear  

seat.

Make sure the child seat or  

the child’s feet do not pre- 

vent the front seat from  

locking correctly

 1.39.

A child seat with a floor sup- 

port must never be installed  

on the rear centre seat.

RISK OF DEATH OR
