Convertible seats can be used in either a forward or rearward-facing position, depending on the age and size of the child.

Route the seat belt through the convertible seat.

WARNING

Always use a convertible seat that is suitable for the child's age and size. See the convertible seat manufacturer's recom- mendations.

  1. Place the convertible seat in the rear seat of the vehicle.

    WARNING

    • A small child's head represents a considerable part of its total weight and its neck is still very weak. Volvo recommends that children up to age 4 travel, properly restrained, facing rearward. In addition, Volvo recommends that children should ride rearward facing, properly restrained, as long as possible.
    • Convertible child seats should be installed in the rear seat only.
    • A rear-facing convertible seat should not be positioned behind the driver's seat unless there is adequate space for safe installation.
  2. Attach the seat belt to the convertible seat according to the child restraint manufac- turer's instructions.

  3.  Fasten the seat belt by inserting the latch plate into the buckle (lock) until a distinct click is audible.
  4. Pull the shoulder section of the seat belt out as far as possible to activate the belt's automatic locking function.

    NOTE

    The locking retractor will automatically release when the seat belt is unbuckled and allowed to retract fully.

  5. Press the convertible seat firmly in place, let the seat belt retract and pull it taut. A sound from the seat belt retractor's automatic locking function will be audible at this time and is normal. The seat belt should now be locked in place.

    WARNING

    A child seat should never be used in the front passenger seat of any vehicle with a front passenger airbag - not even if the "Passenger airbag off" symbol near the rear-view mirror is illuminated. If the severity of an accident were to cause the airbag to inflate, this could lead to serious injury or death to a child seated in this position.
