  • Fold back the seat backrest and push it firmly into the lock until it engages.
  • Attach the child seat to the lower anchoring points   .
  • Fasten the top tether to the retaining rings in the luggage compartment  .
  • Stretch the belt so that the child seat is positioned high on the backrest. If the seat or the backrest is readjusted the child seat must then also be checked to see that it is fitted securely and readjusted as necessary.


Child seats attached using the lower anchoring points and top tether must be fitted according to the instructions from the manufacturer. This could otherwise lead to severe injuries.
  • Never attach more than one top tether from a child seat to one retaining ring in the luggage compartment.
  • Use the bolted on side fastening rings only to attach the top tether.
  • Never attach the top tether to fastening rings other than those bolted on at the side.
  • Child seats with a top tether must be fitted only when there are three seats on the second row of seats.

A child seat may not be used together with the top tether if the net partition is installed.
