Renault Clio: Fitting a child seat, general information

Some seats are not suitable for fitting child seats. The diagram on the following page shows you how to attach a child seat.

The types of child seat indicated may not be available. Before using a different child seat, check with the manufacturer that it can be fitted.

Ensure that the child seat or the child’s feet do not prevent the front seat from locking correctly. Refer to the information on the “Front seat” in Section 1.

Check that when installing the child seat in the vehicle it is not at risk of coming loose from its base.

If you have to remove the headrest, check that it is correctly stored so that it does not come loose under harsh braking or impact.

Always attach the child seat to the vehicle even if it is not in use so that it does not come loose under harsh braking or impact.

In the front seat

The laws concerning children travelling in the front passenger seat differ in every country. Consult the legislation in force and follow the indications on the diagram on the following page.

Before fitting a child seat in this seat (if authorised):

In all situations, reinsert the headrest to its full extent so that it does not interfere with the child seat (see the information on “Front headrests” in Section 1);

After installing the child seat, if necessary, the seat may be advanced (so as to leave enough space in the rear seats for passengers or other child seats).

For a rear-facing child seat, do not let it touch the dashboard or move it to the furthest forward position.

Do not change other settings after installing the child seat.

RISK OF DEATH OR SERIOUS INJURY: Before installing a child seat on the front passenger seat, check that the airbag has been deactivated (please refer to “Child safety: front passenger airbag deactivation and activation” in Section 1).

In the rear side seat

A carrycot can be installed across the vehicle and will take up at least two seats.

Position the child with their feet nearest the door.

Move the front seat as far forward as possible to install a rear-facing child seat, then move back the seat in front as far as it will go, although without allowing it to come into contact with the child seat.

For the safety of the child in the forward- facing seat, do not move the seat in front back past the middle of the runner, do not tilt the seatback too far (maximum of 25°) and raise the seat as much as possible.

In all situations, remove the rear headrests (refer to the information on the “Rear headrests” in Section 3). This must be done before fitting the child seat.

Check that the forward-facing child seat is resting against the back of the vehicle seat.

Rear centre seat

Check that the belt is suitable for securing your child seat. Consult an approved dealer.

Fit the child seat in a rear seat wherever possible.
