How to place child seat in center rear seat

Unread post by odedia »

Is there any automated retractor in the c5 Aircross center seat belt? I want to place a child seat but the center has no isofix. I wonder if the belt would retract and “lock” into place.

On the C5 Aircross, the Isofix mountings are on the outer rear seats and the front passenger seat.

All 3 rear seats can be used for child seats fixed with a seatbelt.

It's all in your owners manual under the 'Safety' Section.

Thank you for the info.

I actually need to use all 3 back seats for child seats, which is why I ask. I couldn’t find information. In the manual if the center belt had a locking retractor function, which would make my life easier. Current to used the included L connector that came with the child seat to keep the belt in place but it is truly a pain to get it working securely.

If I knew how those locking retractors tend to work it’s also a good option - right now I couldn’t find a way to make it lock so I presume it doesn’t exist.

Ok, so you need to have an Isofix seat to use the Isofix fittings in the car.

Some child sets use the seat belt threading method to hold the seat in place - and the Isofix ones like in the photo just clamp in as shown. So make sure you have an Isofix compatible child seat to use the built in Isofix in the rear-outer and front passenger seats.
