Skoda Rapid Spaceback (2019 year). Instruction - part 2

 

 

Transporting children safely

Child seat

Introduction

To reduce the risk of injury in an accident, children should only be transported

in child seats!

Please refer to the instructions in this Owner's Instruction and the child seat man-

ufacturer's instructions with regard to the installation and use of the child seat.
For safety reasons, we recommend that you always transport children on the

rear seats. Only transport a child on the passenger seat in exceptional circum-

stances.
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, and also not 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 70

. 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.

Safety

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

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 28 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 warning is also given on stickers that are located in the following places.

On the passenger sun visor

» Fig. 24

 - .

On the B-column on the front passenger side

» Fig. 24

 – .

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

front passenger seat.

It is essential to deactivate the front passenger airbag if using a child seat in

which the child is transported with its back facing the direction of travel 

» 

.

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.

Once a child seat in which the child is transported with its back to the di-

rection of travel is no longer being used on the passenger seat, the front

passenger airbag should be reactivated.

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

Applies to Taiwan

Fig. 25 

Warning labels

Read and observe   on page 28 first.

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

There must be sufficient room between the child and the deployment area of

the side airbag that the airbag can provide as much protection as possible

WARNING

For the vehicle systems to function correctly, and thus for safe driving,

there must be sufficient fuel in the tank. Never drain the fuel tank com-

pletely – risk of accident!

CAUTION

Never drive until the fuel tank is completely empty! Irregular supply of fuel can

cause misfiring, which can result in damage to parts of the engine and the ex-

haust system.

Note

The arrow  next to the symbol  within the fuel gauge displays the installa-

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

ror.

Continued driving is possible with appropriate caution. Seek assistance from

a specialist garage immediately.

Other incidents

The illumination of the warning light 

 can have the following reasons.

The vehicle is loaded on one side. Distribute the load evenly.

The wheels of one axle are loaded more heavily (e.g. when towing a trailer or

when driving uphill or downhill).

Snow chains are mounted.

A wheel has been changed.

CAUTION

Under certain circumstances (e.g. sporty style of driving, wintry or unpaved

roads) the warning light 

 in the instrument cluster may be delayed or not

light up at all.
