CHILD SEATS Children aged 12 years and under are more likely than adult occupants to receive injuries from inflating airbags. For this reason, it is recommended that children should always be seated in the second row of seats in a child safety seat or restraint system appropriate to their age and size, (see ‘CHILD RESTRAINTS FOR SMALL CHILDREN AND BABIES’, page 52, and ‘CHILD RESTRAINTS FOR LARGER CHILDREN’, page 52).
If it is necessary for a child to travel in the front, set the seat fully rearwards and use a front facing child seat ONLY.
DO NOT USE A REAR FACING CHILD SEAT IN ANY FRONT PASSENGER SEAT LOCATION. If the passenger airbag inflates, a child in a rear facing child restraint could sustain serious injury or death.
Children could be endangered in a crash if their child restraints are not properly secured in the vehicle. Be sure to install child restraints according to the manufacturer's instructions.
DO NOT attempt to service, repair, replace, modify or tamper with any part of the airbag SRS, or wiring in the vicinity of an airbag SRS component; this could cause the system to activate, resulting in personal injury.
Some aibag/SRS components must be replaced by a Land Rover retailer after 15 years from the date of manufacture (shown on the certification plate on the rear face of the left hand front door). See your Passport to Service for details.
In addition, ALWAYS contact your retailer if:
an airbag inflates.
the front of the vehicle is damaged, even if the airbag has not inflated.
any part of an airbag module cover (the steering wheel center pad or facia panel) shows signs of cracking or damage.
Under no circumstances should a rear facing child seat be installed facing forward in any seating position.
