Renault Koleos Owners Manual: Fitting a child seat, general information

Renault Koleos Owners Manual / Getting to know your vehicle / Child safety / 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 seats indicated may not be available. Before using a different child seat, check with the manufacturer that it can be fitted.

Fit the child seat in a rear seat wherever possible.

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):

  • lower the seat belt as far as possible;
  • move the seat as far back as possible;
  • gently tilt the seatback away from vertical (approximately 25º);
  • on equipped vehicles, raise the seat base as far as possible.

In all situations, reinsert the headrest to its full extent so that it does not interfere with the child seat .

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 fitting a rear-facing child seat to this seat, check that the air bag has been deactivated.

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 a child facing forwards, move the seat in front of the child as far forward as possible, remembering to move the seatback forwards to avoid contact between the seat and the child's legs.

In all situations, remove the rear headrests. 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.

Fit the child seat in a rear seat wherever possible.


Ensure that the child seat or the child's feet do not prevent the front seat from locking correctly.


When fitting a child seat (Group 2 or 3 booster seat), check that the seat belts operate (wind) correctly. If necessary, adjust the position of the vehicle seat.
