Yaris Belt Configuration

(A) INFANT SEAT INSTALLATION

An infant seat must be used in rear-facing position only.

/î\ CAUTION

• Never install a rear-facing child restraint system on the front passenger seat even if the "AIRBAG OFF" indicator light is illuminated. In the event of an accident, the force of the rapid inflation of the front passenger airbag can cause death or serious injury to the child if the rear-facing child restraint system is installed on the front passenger seat.

Toyota Yaris Seat Belt Layout

• Do not install a child restraint system on the rear seat if it interferes with the lock mechanism of the front seats. Otherwise, the child or front seat occupant(s) may be killed or seriously injured in case of sudden braking or a collision.

• If the driver's seat position does not allow sufficient space for safe installation, install the child restraint system on the rear right seat.

• Split seat: When installing a child restraint system in the rear seat center position, return both the left and right seatbacks to the upright position. Otherwise, the child restraint system cannot be securely restrained and this may cause death or serious injuries in a collision.

1. Run the lap and shoulder belt through or around the infant seat following the instructions provided by its manufacturer and insert the tab into the buckle taking care not to twist the belt. Keep the lap portion of the belt tight.

• After inserting the tab, make sure the tab and buckle are locked and that the lap and shoulder portions of the belt are not twisted.

• Do not insert coins, clips, etc. in the buckle as this may prevent your child from properly latching the tab and buckle.

• If the seat belt does not function normally, it cannot protect your child from death or serious injury. Contact your Toyota dealer immediately. Do not install the child restraint system on the seat until the seat belt is fixed.

2. Fully extend the shoulder belt to put it in the lock mode. When the belt is then retracted even slightly, it cannot be extended.

To hold the infant seat securely, make sure the belt is in the lock mode before letting the belt retract.

Pulling Different Directions

Push and pull the child restraint system in different directions to be sure it is secure. Follow all the installation instructions provided by its manufacturer.

4. To remove the infant seat, press the buckle release button and allow the belt to retract completely. The belt will move freely again and be ready to work for an adult or older child passenger.

(B) CONVERTIBLE SEAT INSTALLATION

A convertible seat must be used in forward-facing or rear-facing position depending on the age and size of the child. Remove the head restraint before installing the convertible seat in a forward-facing position on the rear seat. When installing, follow the manufacturer's instructions about the applicable age and size of the child as well as directions for installing the child restraint system.

Install the child restraint system on the front passenger seat only when it is unavoidable. Your vehicle is equipped with a front passenger occupant classification system. In order to activate the occupant classification system correctly, install the forward-facing child restraint system on the front passenger seat in the following order:

1. Turn the ignition key to the "ON" position.

2. Move the front passenger seat to the rearward position.

3. If you must install the child restraint system on the front passenger seat, put the child restraint system putting your weight on the front passenger seat.

4. Insert the seat belt tab into the seat belt buckle.

5. Fully extend the shoulder belt to put it in the lock mode. When the belt is then retracted even slightly, it cannot be extended. To hold the seat securely, make sure the belt is in the lock mode before letting the belt retract.

6. While pressing the convertible seat firmly against the seat cushion and seatback, let the shoulder belt retract as far as it will go to hold the convertible seat securely.

/l\ CAUTION

Push and pull the child restraint system in different directions to be sure it is secure. Follow all the installation instructions provided by its manufacturer.

7. Put a child on the child restraint system and secure the child, complying with the instructions provided by the child restraint system manufacturer.

The "AIRBAG OFF" indicator light should be illuminated when the ignition key is in the "ON" position and the child is in the child restraint system after following these procedures. The "AIRBAG OFF" indicator light indicates the SRS front passenger airbag and side airbag on the passenger side will not deploy. If the "AIRBAG ON" indicator light is illuminated, do the following procedure:

1. Turn the ignition off.

2. Remove the child restraint system.

3. When reinstalling a child restraint system, make sure the seatback does not press the child restraint system into the seat cushion. If this occurs, adjust the seatback angle slightly.

4. Then make sure the head restraint is not pressing the child restraint system into the seat cushion. If this occurs, raise the head restraint.

5. Turn the ignition on again.

The "AIRBAG OFF" indicator light should be illuminated. If the "AIRBAG ON" indicator light is illuminated when the ignition key is turned to the "ON" position, then the SRS front passenger airbag and side airbag on the passenger side may deploy in an accident. Do not drive the vehicle in this condition. Remove the child restraint system and contact your Toyota dealer.

• Never install a rear-facing child restraint system on the front passenger seat. A forward-facing child restraint system should only be installed on the front passenger seat when unavoidable. If you must install the child restraint system on the front passenger seat, put the seat in its most rearward position, and install the forward-facing child restraint system in the proper order. Otherwise, the front passenger occupant classification system cannot detect the presence of the child restraint system and the front passenger airbag and side airbag on the front passenger seat could deploy.

Always move the seat as far back as possible even if the "AIRBAG OFF" indicator light is illuminated, because the front passenger airbag could inflate with considerable speed and force. Otherwise, the child may be killed or seriously injured.

• On vehicles with side airbags and curtain shield airbags, do not allow the child to lean his/her head or any part of his/her body against the door or the area of the seat, front or rear pillar or roof side rail from which the side airbags or curtain shield airbags deploy even if the child is seated in the child restraint system. If is dangerous if the side airbag and curtain shield airbag inflate, and the impact could cause death or serious injury to the child.

(C) BOOSTER SEAT INSTALLATION

A booster seat must be used in forward-facing position only.

/l\ CAUTION
