Observe the safety precautions.

There is a top tether anchor behind every seat in the rear bench seat to additionally secure a child safety seat with an upper belt.

  • Move the head restraint behind the child safety seat upward.
  • Secure the child safety seat according to the child safety seat manufacturer instructions.
  • Guide the upper belt on the child safety seat under the head restraint or along both sides of it and toward the rear (depending on the child safety seat model).
  • Fasten the belt to the top tether anchor => fig. 74. While doing this, make sure the belt is not twisted and is not running over any sharp edges.
  • Pull the belt tightly so that the child safety seat rests at the top of the seat backrest.
  • If necessary, move the head restraint behind the child safety seat downward.

WARNING

The top tether anchors in the vehicle are only designed for child safety seats equipped with an upper strap. To reduce the risk of serious or fatal injury, never secure other child restraint systems, belts, or objects to the anchors.

Securing unused safety belts on the rear bench seat

If a child safety seat is used on the rear bench seat, the child must not be able to reach any safety belts that are not being used. Secure safety belts that are within reach of the child.

  • If you secure a child safety seat to the LATCH anchors in the second row, fasten the safety belt on the seat where the child safety seat is installed using the seat's safety belt latch.
  • If you secure a child safety seat to the LATCH anchors in the third row, fasten the safety belt on the seat where the child safety seat is installed using the seat's safety belt latch.
  • If you secure a child safety seat to one of the outer seats in the second row, fasten the safety belt for the center seat in its latch.
  • Activate the belt retractor lock on the fastened safety belts. To do this, pull the upper belt out completely and then allow it to retract. You will hear a clicking sound while the belt is retracting.

    It will not be possible to pull the safety belt out any farther.

  • Make sure the fastened safety belt does not block access to the LATCH anchors. Otherwise, it may not be possible to secure the child safety seat to the LATCH anchors correctly.

WARNING

A child in a child safety seat could play with the unused safety belts and then become entangled in them, which increases the risk of fatal injury. Always secure unused safety belts so that they are not within reach of children in child safety seats.
