Every time a child travels in the vehicle, observe the following:

  • Use appropriate child restraints.

  • Carefully follow the instructions provided by the manufacturer of the restraint system.

  • Adjust the harness for every child on every journey.

  • Make sure that all slack is removed from the adult seat belt.

  • Make sure that any seat belt positioning sliders are adjusted so there is no slack in the belt after fastening.

  • Always attach the top tether when fitting an i-Size or ISOFIX child seat, if applicable to the seat type.

  • Always check the security of the child restraint.

  • Avoid dressing the child in bulky clothing. Do not place any objects between the child and the restraint system.

  • Regularly check the fit and condition of the child seat. Replace child seats and harnesses that show signs of wear immediately.

  • Set a good example and always wear a seat belt.

  • For child seats fitted with a support leg, adjust the leg so that it rests firmly on the floor.

  • If a head restraint interferes with the fitment of a child restraint, remove the head restraint and store securely. Always refit the head restraint when the child seat is removed. See REAR HEAD RESTRAINTS.

  • When fitting a rearward-facing child seat in the rear, it may be required to move the front seat forward and upward. Care must be taken not to load any part of the child seat when repositioning the front seat. The space available for front seat occupants is reduced by the fitment of a rearward-facing child seat in the rear.


Always store a removed head restraint securely. In the event of an accident, an unsecured object could cause serious injury or death.
