FITTING TETHER ANCHORAGE CHILD RESTRAINTS

WARNING

Always follow the child seat or restraint system manufacturer’s instructions when fitting tether straps.

WARNING

Always pass the tether strap over the top of the seatback and underneath the head restraint, when fitting a child seat or restraint.

WARNING

If a child seat or restraint system is to be fitted to the center seating position, the center armrest must be in the stowed position (folded into the seat). It is impossible to secure the child seat or restraint system correctly with the armrest in place, which reduces the effectiveness of the restraint in the event of an accident.

Tether strap anchor points are located behind the second row seats. The anchor points should be used to attach tether straps from a child seat or restraint system.

Fitting the child restraint:

  1. Fit the child restraint securely in one of the rear seating positions.

  2. Pass the tether strap over the seatback, beneath the head restraint, and between the seatback and the loadspace cover.

  3. Lift the loadspace floor and move rearwards to gain better access to the tether anchor points.

  4. Attach the tether strap hook to the tether anchor point on the back of the seat. Make sure the tether strap hook is facing towards the back of the seat.

  5. Replace the loadspace floor.

  6. Tighten the tether strap according to the child restraint manufacturer's instructions.

If a head restraint is removed to fit a child seat, make sure it is refitted before the seat is used by a passenger. See REAR HEAD RESTRAINTS.
