Transporting children safely

Child seat

Introduction

To reduce the risk of injury in the event of an accident, children must be trans-

ported in child seats!

The information in this Owner´s Instruction as well as the instructions of the child

seat manufacturer must be observed when installing and using the child seat.
For safety reasons, we recommend that you always transport child seats on

the rear seats. Children should be transported on the front passenger seat only

in exceptional circumstances.
Child seats complying with the ECE-R 44 Economic Commission for Europe

standard must be used.
Child seats that comply with the ECE-R 44 standard are identified with a test

mark that cannot be removed: large E within a circle with the test number be-

low.

WARNING

One should never carry children - or indeed babies - on one's lap.

When leaving the vehicle, do not leave children unattended in the vehicle.

Children might not be capable of leaving the vehicle or helping themselves

independently in the event of an emergency. Can be fatal at very high or

very low temperatures!

The child must be secured in the vehicle during the entire journey! Other-

wise, the child would be thrown through the vehicle in the event of an acci-

dent, causing fatal injuries to both the child and other occupants.

Children are exposed to an increased risk of injury in the event of an acci-

dent if they lean forward or adopt an incorrect seated position when the

vehicle is moving. This particularly applies to children who are transported

on the front passenger seat as they can suffer severe, or even fatal injuries

if the airbag system is deployed!

Pay particular attention to the information provided by the manufacturer

of the child safety seat regarding the correct routing of the belt. Seat belts

which are not correctly adjusted can themselves cause injuries even in mi-

nor accidents.

WARNING (Continued)

Safety belts must be checked to ensure that they are running properly.

One should also ensure that the belt is not damaged by sharp-edged fit-

tings.

When installing the child seat on the back seat, the corresponding front

seat must be adjusted so that there is no contact between the front seat

and the child seat or the child being transported in a child seat.

When installing a child seat in which the child faces forward, adjust the

head restraints so that they are as high as possible.

If the head restraints still prevent the child seat from being installed, even

in the highest position, you will need to remove them 

» page 89

. After re-

moving the child seat, refit the head restraints.

Note

We recommend that you use child seats from ŠKODA Original Accessories.

These child seats were developed and also tested for use in ŠKODA vehicles.

They meet the ECE-R 44 standard.

Transporting children safely

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Use of a child seat on the front passenger seat (variant 1)

Does not apply to Taiwan

Fig. 24  Warning labels

Read and observe   on page 29 first.

Never use a rear-facing child restraint system on a seat which is protected

by an active airbag positioned in front of it. This could cause serious injury

to the child, even death.
This is indicated also on stickers that are located at the following positions.

On the passenger sun visor

» Fig. 24

 - .

On the B-pillar on the front passenger side 

» Fig. 24

 – .

The following instructions must be followed when using a child seat on the

front passenger seat.

The front passenger airbag must be deactivated if using a rear-facing child

seat 

» 

.

If possible, adjust the front passenger seat backrest so that it is as vertical, so

as to ensure secure contact between the passenger seat backrest and the

back of the child seat.

If possible, move the front passenger seat backwards so that there is no con-

tact between the front passenger seat and the child seat behind it.

Set the height-adjustable front passenger seat as high up as possible.

Set the front passenger seat belt as high up as possible.

With child safety seats in groups 2 and 3, make sure that the loop-around fit-

tings attached to the child seat headrest is positioned in front of or at the

same height as the loop-around fittings on the B pillar on the passenger side.

Adjust the height of the front passenger seat belt so that the belt does not

“jam” in the return pulley. In the event of an accident, there is the risk of in-

jury to the neck of the child carried due to the seat belt!

WARNING

Never use a rear-facing child seat on the front passenger seat if the pas-

senger airbag is activated. This child safety seat is positioned in the deploy-

ment area of the front passenger airbag. The airbag may cause the child se-

vere, or even fatal injuries, in the event of it being deployed.

As soon as the child seat, in which the child is transported with their back

in the direction of travel, is no longer used in the front passenger seat, the

front passenger airbag should be switched on again.

Use of a child seat on the front passenger seat (variant 2)

Applies to Taiwan

Fig. 25 

Warning labels

Read and observe   on page 29 first.

No babies, infants or children are to be carried on the front passenger seat.
A label to this effect can also be found on the front passenger's sun visor

Read and observe   on page 29 first.

The child must not be positioned in the deployment area of the side airbag

» Fig. 26

There must be sufficient room between the child and the area into which the

side airbag will deploy to allow the airbag to provide as much protection as

possible

The warning lights in the instrument cluster indicate certain functions or faults.
Some warning lights can be accompanied by acoustic signals and messages in

the display of the instrument cluster.
After switching on the ignition, some warning lights light up briefly as a func-

tion test. If the tested systems are OK, the corresponding warning lights go

out a few seconds after switching on the ignition or after starting the engine.

Warning lights in the display

Depending on the significance, the warning light 

 (danger) or 

 (warning)

will light up along with some other warning lights in the display.
Depending on vehicle equipment fitted, some indicator lights can be shown in

the display. For example. the coolant warning light can be shown as follows.

 - monochrome (“black and white”) display

 - coloured display

WARNING

Ignoring illuminated warning lights and related messages or instructions

in the display of the instrument cluster may lead to serious personal injury

or damage to the vehicle.

If you have to stop for technical reasons, then park the vehicle at a safe

distance from the traffic, switch off the engine and switch on the hazard

warning lights

steering assist is no longer working (significantly higher steering forces).

 illuminates - this indicates a partial failure of the power steering and the

steering forces may be greater.

Switch off the ignition, start the engine again and travel a short distance.

If the warning light 

 does not go off, stop the vehicle, 

 do not continue

your journey. Seek help from a specialist garage.

Instruments and warning lights

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The warning light should go out after driving a short distance.
If, after the motor is restarted and a short drive, the indicator light does not go

out, there is a system error.

You can drive on, exercising appropriate caution. Seek assistance from a spe-

cialist garage immediately.

 Stability Control (ESC)/Traction control (TCS)

Read and observe   on page 40 first.

If your vehicle is equipped with the ESC system, the TCS is part of the ESC

system.

 flashes – the ESC or TCS is currently being activated.

 illuminates – there is an ESC or TCS fault.

You can drive on, exercising appropriate caution. Seek assistance from a spe-

cialist garage immediately.
