Safety

Any work on the head-protection airbag

system or removal and installation of the
airbag components for other repairs (such
as removal of the roof lining) should only
be performed by a specialised workshop.
Otherwise, faults may occur during the air-
bag system operation.

The side and head airbags are managed

through sensors located in the interior of
the front doors. To ensure the correct oper-
ation of the side and head-protection air-
bags neither the doors nor the door panels
should be modified in any way (e.g. fitting
loudspeakers). If the front door is dam-
aged, the airbag system may not work cor-
rectly. All work carried out on the front door
must be done in a specialised workshop.

safely

Child safety

Introduction

For safety reasons, as we have learned from
accident statistics, we recommend that chil-
dren under 12 years of age travel in the rear
seats. Depending on their age, height and
weight, children travelling in rear seats must
use a child seat or a seat belt. For safety rea-
sons, the child seat should be installed in the
rear seat, behind the front passenger seat or
in the centre back seat.

The physical laws involved and the forces
acting in a collision apply also to children

››› 

page 18

. But unlike adults, children do not

have fully developed muscle and bone struc-
tures. This means that children are subject to
a greater risk of injury.

To reduce the risk of injuries, children must al-
ways use special child restraint systems
when travelling in the vehicle.

We recommend the use of child safety prod-
ucts from the SEAT Original Accessories Pro-
gramme, which includes systems for all ages
made by “Peke” (not for all countries) (see
www.seat.com).

These systems have been especially de-
signed and approved, complying with the
ECE-R44. regulation.

SEAT recommends securing the child seats
shown on the website as described below:

Child seats in the opposite direction of trav-

el (group 0+): ISOFIX and support bracket
(Peke G0 Plus + ISOFIX Base (RWF)).

Child seats in the direction of travel (group

1): ISOFIX and Top Tether (Peke G1 ISOFIX
DUO Plus).

Child seats directed towards the front of

the vehicle for group 2: safety belt and ISOFIX
(RÖMER KIDFIX XP

).

Child seats directed towards the front of

the vehicle for group 3: safety belt and ISOFIX
(TATAKI MAXI PLUS

).

Follow the manufacturer's instructions and
observe any statutory requirements when in-
stalling and using child seats. Always read
and note 

››› 

page 30

.

We recommend you always carry the manu-
facturer's Child Seat Instruction Manual to-
gether with the on-board documentation.

Transporting children safely

Child seats group classification

Fig. 21 

Examples of child seats.

Use only child seats that are officially ap-
proved and suitable for the child.

These seats are subject to the ECE-R44 or
ECE-R129 standards. ECE-R stands for: Eco-
nomic Commission for Europe Regulation.

Child seats by weight group

The child seats are grouped into 5 catego-
ries:

Age group

Weight of the child

Group 0

Up to 10 kg

Group 0+

Up to 13 kg

Group 1

From 9 to 18 kg

Group 2

From 15 to 25 kg

Group 3

From 22 to 36 kg

Child seats that have been tested and ap-
proved under the ECE R44 or ECE-R129
standards bear the ECE-R44 or ECE-R129
test marks on the seat (the letter E in a circle
with the test number below it).

Follow the manufacturer's instructions and
observe any statutory requirements when in-
stalling and using child seats.

We recommend you to always include the
manufacturer's Child Seat Instruction Manual
together with the on-board documentation.

SEAT recommends you use child seats from
the 

Original Accessories Catalogue

. These

child seats have been designed and tested
for use in SEAT vehicles. You can find the right
child seat for your model and age group at
SEAT dealers.

Child seats by approval category

Child seats may have the approval category
of universal, semi-universal, vehicle specific
(all according to the ECE-R44 standard) or i-
Size (according to the ECE-R129 standard).

Universal

: child seats with universal appro-

val can be installed in all vehicles. There is no
need to consult any list of models. In the case
of universal approval for ISOFIX, the child
seat is additionally provided with a Top Tether
belt.

Semi-universal

: semi-universal approval,

in addition to the standard requirements of

universal approval, requires safety devices to
lock the child seat, which require additional
testing. Child seats with semi-universal ap-
proval include a list of vehicle models for
which they can be installed.

Vehicle-specific

: vehicle-specific approval

requires a dynamic test of the child seat for
each vehicle model separately. Child seats
with vehicle-specific approval also include a
list of vehicle models for which they can be
installed.

i-Size

: child seats with i-Size approval must

meet the requirements set out in the ECE-
R129 standard in relation to installation and
safety. Child seat manufacturers can tell you
which seats have i-Size approval for this vehi-
cle.

Warnings about fitting a child seat

Take the following general warnings into ac-
count if you are going to fit a child seat. They
are valid for all child seats regardless of their
attachment system.

Please read and follow the child seat man-

ufacturer's operating instructions.

The child seat should preferably be fitted to

the rear seat behind the front passenger seat
so that the child can exit the vehicle on the
pavement side.

Set the height of the seat belt such that it

adapts to the child seat naturally, without
twisting. The lowest position of the seat belt
height regulator must be used with rear-fac-
ing child seats.

To correctly use a child seat in the back,

the front backrest must be adjusted so that
there is no contact with the child seat in the
back in the case that it goes opposite to the
direction of the car. In the case of front facing
restraint systems, the front backrest must be
adjusted so that there is no contact with the
child's feet.

If a semi-universal type chair is to be instal-

led, in which the method of attachment to the
car is through the seat belt and support

bracket, it should never be installed in the
central rear seat as the ground clearance is
lower than in other places and the support
bracket will not allow the seat to remain suffi-
ciently stable.

When fitting a child seat on the front pas-

senger seat, the seat must be moved back-
wards as far as possible and placed in the
highest position. The backrest must also be
put in a vertical position

1)

.

Important information about the front pas-
senger front airbag

A sticker with important information about the
passenger airbag is located on the passeng-
er's sun visor and/or on the passenger side
door frame 

››› 

Fig. 22

.

Read and always observe the safety informa-
tion included in the following chapters:

Safety distance with respect to the passen-

ger airbag 

››› 

page 22

.

Objects between the passenger and the

passenger side airbag 

››› 

 in Front airbags

on page 25

.

The passenger side front airbag, when ena-
bled, is a serious risk for a child that is facing
backward since the airbag can strike the seat

1)

Compliance with current national legislation

and the manufacturer's instructions is required
when using or installing child seats.

30

Transporting children safely

with such force that it can cause serious or
fatal injuries. Children up to 12 years old
should always travel on the rear seat.

Therefore we strongly recommend you to
transport children on the rear seats. This is
the safest location in the vehicle. Alternative-
ly, the front passenger airbag can be disa-
bled with a key-operated switch 

››› 

page 25

.

When transporting children, use a child seat
suitable for the age and size of each child

››› 

page 29

.

WARNING

If a child seat is secured to the front pas-

senger seat, the risk to the child of sustain-
ing critical or fatal injuries in the event of an
accident increases.

An inflating front passenger airbag can

strike the rear-facing child seat and project
it with great force against the door, the roof
or the backrest.

Never install a child seat facing back-

wards on the front passenger seat unless
the front passenger front airbag has been
disabled. Risk of potentially fatal injuries to
the child! However, if necessary, the front
passenger front airbag must be deactiva-
ted 

››› 

page 25

. If the passenger seat has a

height adjustment option, move it to the
highest, most upright position. If you have a
fixed seat, do not install any child restraint
system in this location.

For those vehicles that do not include a

key lock switch to deactivate the airbag,
the vehicle must be taken to a technical
service. Do not forget to reconnect the air-
bag when an adult wants to sit in the front
passenger seat.

Never allow a child to be transported in a

vehicle without being properly secured, or
to stand up or kneel on a seat while travel-
ling. In an accident, the child could be flung
through the vehicle, causing possibly fatal
injuries to themselves and to the other vehi-
cle occupants.

Never leave a child alone in the child seat

or in the vehicle.

Children who are less than 1.5 metres tall

must not wear a normal seat belt without a
child seat, as this could cause injuries to
the abdominal and neck areas during a
sudden braking manoeuvre or in an acci-
dent.

When a child seat is mounted in the rear

seats, the door child-proof lock should be
activated 

››› 

page 107

.

Attachment systems

Depending on the country, different attach-
ment systems are used for safely installing
child seats.

Attachment systems overview

ISOFIX

: ISOFIX is a standardised attach-

ment system allowing quick and safe attach-
ment of child seats in the vehicle. ISOFIX at-
tachment establishes a rigid connection be-
tween the child seat and the car body.

The child seat has two rigid attachment clips,
called connectors. These connectors are fit-
ted into the ISOFIX attachment rings found
between the seat cushion and the backrest
of the vehicle's back seat (on the sides). ISO-
FIX attachment systems are used mainly in
Europe 

››› 

page 32

. If necessary, ISOFIX at-

tachment may have to be supplemented with
a Top Tether belt or a support bracket.

Automatic three-point seat belt

. When-

ever possible, it is preferable to attach the
child seats with the ISOFIX system rather than
attaching them with an automatic three-point
seat belt 

››› 

page 35

.

Additional attachment:

Top Tether

: the Top Tether belt is guided

over the back of the rear seat and attached
to an anchor point with a hook. Anchor points
are located at the back of the rear seat back-
rest on the boot side 

››› 

page 34

. The rings

for retaining the Top Tether belt are marked
with an anchor symbol.

Support bracket

: some child seats rest on

the floor of the vehicle with a support bracket.
The support bracket prevents the child seat

»

31

Safety

from tipping forward in the event of impact.
Child seats fitted with a support bracket
should only be used in the passenger seat
and side rear seats 

››› 

. For the assembly of

this type of seat you should also consult the
list of approved vehicles for this assembly,
available in the instructions for child restraint
systems.

Recommended systems for attaching
child seats

SEAT recommends attaching child seats as
follows:

Baby carriers or child seats in the oppo-

site direction of travel:

 ISOFIX and support

bracket or i-Size.

Child seats in the direction of travel:

 ISO-

FIX and Top Tether.

WARNING

Incorrect use of the support bracket can
cause serious or fatal injury.

Make sure the support bracket is correct-

ly and safely installed.

Rear seats: fitting a child seat with the

ISOFIX system.

Child seats can be secured quickly, easily
and safely on the rear side seats with the
“ISOFIX” and Top Tether system.

Two “ISOFIX” retaining rings are fitted on each
rear side seat. In some vehicles, the rings are
secured to the seat frame and, in others, they
are secured to the rear floor. The “ISOFIX”
rings are located between the rear seat

backrest and the seat cushioning

Safety

Securing the child seat with the “ISOFIX/i-
Size” system

You are obliged to follow the seat manufac-
turer's instructions.

Open the cut-out section behind the

marked grooves to access the retaining rings

››› 

Fig. 24

.

Press the child seat onto the “ISOFIX/iSize”

retaining rings until the child seat is heard to
engage securely 

››› 

Fig. 25

. If the child seat is

equipped with Top Tether anchor points, se-
cure it to the correspondent ring

››› 

page 34

. Observe the manufacturer's in-

structions.

Pull on both sides of the child seat to ensure

that it is properly anchored.

Child seats with the “ISOFIX” and Top Tether
attachment system are available from Tech-
nical Services.

WARNING

The securing rings are designed only for
use with “ISOFIX” and Top Tether system
child seats.

Never secure other child seats that do

not have the “ISOFIX” or Top Tether system,
or safety belts or any other objects to the
securing rings – as this can result in poten-
tially fatal injuries to the child.

Ensure that the child seat is correctly se-

cured to the “ISOFIX” and Top Tether secur-
ing rings.

Back of the rear seats: Top Tether se-

curing rings.

Child seats with the Top Tether system come
with a strap for securing the seat to the vehi-
cle anchor point, located at the back of the
rear seat backrest and provide greater re-
straint.

The objective of this strap is to reduce for-
ward movements of the child seat in a crash,
to reduce the risk of injuries to the head from
hitting the inside of the vehicle.

Using the Top Tether in rear-facing moun-
ted seats

Currently, there are very few rear-facing child
safety seats that have Top Tether. Please
carefully read and follow the seat manufac-
turer instructions to learn the proper way to
install the Top Tether strap.

The emergency call is made from an area

with weak or no mobile and GPS signal, as
well as e.g. tunnels, between very tall build-
ings, garages, underground walkways, moun-
tains and valleys.

In areas with sufficient mobile telephone

and GPS coverage, the mobile telephone
network of the telecommunications operator
in question may not be available.

In some countries, the emergency call serv-

ice may not be available due to legal rea-
sons. There is no valid license for the use of
the emergency call service.

The components of the vehicle required for

the emergency phone call are damaged or
do not get enough power.

In some countries, the emergency call serv-

ice may not be available and depending on
the location of the vehicle, the control lamp
LEDs, and even the operation of the different
types of calls, could have a specific behav-
iour.

Note

Breakdown service and information calls
can incur an additional cost on your tele-
phone bill.

WARNING

When the vehicle tool kit, tyre mobility set
and spare wheel are loose in the interior
they can be violently thrown in case of a
sudden manoeuvre or braking and espe-
cially in accidents, causing serious injury.

Ensure that the vehicle tool kit, the tyre

mobility set and the spare wheel or tempo-
rary spare wheel are safely secured in the
luggage compartment.

WARNING

Unsuitable or damaged vehicle tools can
cause injury or accidents.

Never work with inappropriate or dam-

aged tools.

Note

The jack does not generally require any
maintenance. If required, it should be
greased using universal type grease.

Tyre repairs

TMS (Tyre Mobility System)

The Tyre Mobility System will reliably seal
punctures caused by the penetration of a for-
eign body of up to about 

4 mm

 in diameter.

Do not remove foreign objects, e.g. screws
or nails, from the tyre.

After inserting the sealant residue in the tyre,
you must again check the tyre pressure
about 10 minutes after starting the engine.

You should only use the tyre mobility set if the
vehicle is parked in a safe place, you are fa-
miliar with the procedure and you have the
necessary tyre mobility set! Otherwise, you
should seek professional assistance.

Do not use the tyre sealant in the following
cases:

If the wheel rim has been damaged.

In outside temperatures below -20°C

(-4°F).

In the event of cuts or perforations in the

tyre greater than 4 mm.

If you have been driving with very low pres-

sure or a completely flat tyre.

If the sealant bottle has passed its use by

date.

WARNING

Using the tyre mobility system can be dan-
gerous, especially when filling the tyre at
the roadside. Please observe the following
rules to minimise the risk of injury:

Stop the vehicle safely as soon as possi-

ble. Park it at a safe distance from sur-
rounding traffic to fill the tyre.

40

Self-help

Ensure the ground on which you park is

flat and solid.

All passengers and particularly children

must keep a safe distance from the work
area.

Turn on the hazard warning lights to warn

other road users.

Use the tyre mobility system only if you

are familiar with the necessary procedures.
Otherwise, you should seek professional
assistance.

The tyre mobility set is intended for tem-

porary emergency use only until you can
reach the nearest specialised workshop.

Replace the repaired tyre with the tyre

mobility set as soon as possible.

The sealant is a health hazard and must

be cleaned immediately if it comes into
contact with the skin.

Always keep the tyre mobility set out of

the reach of small children.

Always stop the engine, apply the hand

brake and put it in gear when using a man-
ual gearbox, in order to reduce the risk of
involuntary movement of the vehicle.

WARNING

A tyre filled with sealant does not have the
same performance properties as a conven-
tional tyre.

Never drive faster than 80 km/h

(50 mph).

Avoid heavy acceleration, hard braking

and fast cornering.

Drive for only 10 minutes at a maximum

speed of 80 km/h (50 mph) and then check
the tyre.

For the sake of the environment

Dispose of used or expired sealant observ-

Keep the air compressor running until it rea-

ches 2.0 to 2.5 bar (29-36 psi/200-250 kPa).

A maximum of 8 minutes

.

Disconnect the air compressor.

If it does not reach the pressure indicated,

unscrew the tyre inflator tube from the valve.

Move the vehicle 10m so that the sealant is

distributed throughout the tyre.

Screw the compressor tyre inflator into the

valve.

Repeat the inflation process.

If the indicated pressure still cannot be

reached, the tyre is too badly damaged. Stop
and request assistance from an authorised
technician.

Disconnect the air compressor. Unscrew

the tyre inflator tube from the tyre valve.

When the tyre pressure is between 2.5 and

2.0 bars, continue driving without exceeding
80 km/h (50 mph).

WARNING

When inflating the wheel, the air compres-
sor and the inflator tube may become hot.

Protect hands and skin from hot parts.

Do not place the hot flexible inflator tube

or hot air compressor on flammable mate-
rial.

Allow them to cool before storing the de-

vice.

If it is not possible to inflate the tyre to at

least 2.0 bars (29 psi / 200 kPa), the tyre is
too badly damaged. The sealant is not in a
good condition to seal the tyre. Do not con-
tinue driving. Seek specialist assistance.

CAUTION

Switch off the air compressor after a maxi-
mum of 8 operational minutes to avoid
overheating! Before switching on the air
compressor again, let it cool for several mi-
nutes.

.

1.4 bar (20 psi / 140 kPa) and higher:

Set the tyre pressure to the correct value

again.

Carefully resume your journey until you

reach the nearest specialised workshop with-
out exceeding 80 km/h (50 mph).

Have the damaged tyre replaced.

WARNING

Driving with an unsealed tyre is dangerous
and can cause accidents and serious in-
jury.

Do not continue driving if the tyre pres-

sure is 1.3 bar (19 psi / 130 kPa) and lower.

Seek specialist assistance.
