BMW X5: Installing child restraint systems

General information

Pay attention to the specifications and the operating and safety information of the child restraint system manufacturer when selecting, installing, and using child restraint systems.

Safety information

Warning

The protective effect of child restraint systems and their fastening systems which have been damaged or exposed to an accident can be limited or lost. A child cannot be properly restrained in the event of an accident, braking or evasive maneuvers. There is a risk of injury or danger to life.

Do not use child restraint systems which have been damaged or exposed to an accident.

If a child restraint system and its fastening system has been damaged or exposed to an accident, have these systems checked and replaced by the dealer's service center or another qualified service center or repair shop.

Warning

The stability of the child restraint system is limited or compromised with incorrect seat setting or improper installation of the child seat. There is a risk of injury or danger to life. Make sure that the child restraint system fits securely against the backrest. If possible, adjust the backrest tilt for all affected backrests and correctly adjust the seats. Make sure that seats and backrests are securely engaged or locked.

If possible, adjust the height of the head restraints or remove them.

Before mounting

Before mounting child restraint systems, ensure that the rear seat backrests are locked.

Move the rear seats into the rearmost position to facilitate assembly of the child restraint system.

Third row of seats

Before installing a child restraint system in the third row of seats, note the following:

Do not change the settings that have been made after this.

On the front passenger seat

Deactivating airbags

Warning

Active front passenger airbags can injure a child in a child restraint system when the airbags are activated. There is a risk of injury. Make sure that the front passenger airbags are deactivated and that the PASSENGER AIRBAG OFF indicator light lights up.

Before installing a child restraint system in the front passenger seat, make sure that the front, knee and side airbags on the front passenger side are deactivated.

Additional information: For automatic deactivation of front passenger airbags.

Seat position and height

After installing a child restraint system, move the front passenger seat as far back as it will go and, if possible, bring it up to the highest position.

This seat position and height ensure the best possible position for the belt and offers optimal protection in the event of an accident.

If the upper attachment point of the safety belt is located in front of the belt guide of the child seat, move the front passenger seat carefully forward until the best possible belt guide position is reached.

Backrest width

Adjustable backrest width: before installing a child restraint system in the front passenger seat, open the backrest width completely. Do not change the backrest width again and do not call up a memory position.

Child seat security

1. Pull out the belt strap completely.

2. Secure the child restraint system with the safety belt.

3. Allow the belt strap to be pulled in and pull it tight against the child restraint system. The safety belt is disabled.

Unlocking the safety belt
