The safety belt cannot be fastened correctly on
children shorter than 5 ft, 150 cm without suita‐
ble additional child restraint systems. The effi‐
cacy of safety gear, including safety belts, can
be limited or lost when safety belts are fas‐
tened incorrectly. An incorrectly fastened safety
belt can cause additional injuries, for instance in
the event of an accident, braking or evasive
maneuvers. There is a risk of injuries or danger
to life. Secure children shorter than 5 ft,
150 cm using suitable child restraint systems.
Children on the front passenger
Before using a child restraint system on the front
passenger seat, ensure that the front, knee, and
side airbags on the front passenger side are de‐
activated. For automatic deactivation of front-
seat passenger airbags, refer to page 160.
Active front-seat passenger airbags can injure a
child in a child restraint system when the air‐
bags are activated. There is a risk of injury.
Make sure that the front-seat passenger air‐
bags are deactivated and that the PASSEN‐
GER AIRBAG OFF indicator light lights up.
Installing child restraint
Pay attention to the specifications and the oper‐
ating and safety information of the child restraint
system manufacturer when selecting, installing,
and using child restraint systems.
The protective effect of child restraint systems
and their fastening systems which have been
damaged or exposed to an accident can be lim‐
ited or lost. A child cannot be properly re‐
strained in the event of an accident, braking or
evasive maneuvers. There is a risk of injuries or
danger to life.
Do not use child restraint systems which have
been damaged or exposed to an accident.
If a child restraint system and its fastening sys‐
tem has been damaged or exposed to an acci‐
dent, have these systems checked and re‐
placed by the dealer's service center or another
qualified service center or repair shop.
The stability of the child restraint system is lim‐
ited or compromised with incorrect seat adjust‐
ment or improper installation of the child seat.
There is a risk of injuries or danger to life. Make
sure that the child restraint system fits securely
against the backrest. If possible, adjust the
backrest tilt for all affected backrests and cor‐
rectly adjust the seats. Make sure that seats
and backrests are securely engaged or locked.
If possible, adjust the height of the head re‐
straints or remove them.
