With a design equipped with sturdy seat belts, adjustable baby seats, and a child safety system in the rear, the BMW 2007-m6 is a reliable and safe vehicle for transporting the entire family. This article will further discuss the safety features of the BMW 2007-m6 that ensure children remain protected during the journey.
The right place for children
⚠ Do not leave children unattended in the vehicle; otherwise, they could endanger themselves and other persons, e.g. by opening the doors.
Children always in the rear
Accident research shows that the safest place for children is in the back.
⚠ Children younger than 13 years of age or with a height under 5 ft/150 cm may only be transported in the rear in child restraint systems which correspond to the age, weight and height of the child. Otherwise, there is an increased danger of injury in an accident.
Children 13 years of age or older must wear a safety belt as soon as a suitable child restraint system can no longer be used due to their age, size and weight.
Exception for front passenger seat
⚠ Should it be necessary to use a child restraint system on the front passenger seat, the front, knee and side airbags on the passenger side must be deactivated. Otherwise, there is an increased risk of injury for the child if the airbags are triggered, even with a child restraint system.
Installing child restraint systems
⚠ Follow child restraint system manufacturer’s instructions for the selection, installation and use of child restraint systems. Otherwise, the degree of protection they offer may be reduced.
On front passenger seat
⚠ After mounting a child restraint system on the front passenger seat, make sure that the front and side airbags on the front passenger side are deactivated, as otherwise there is an increased risk of injury if the airbags are triggered.
⚠ Before mounting a child restraint system on the front passenger seat, the backrest width adjustment must be open completely.
- Adjust the backrest width to the fully open position.
- Install child’s seat.
Child seat security
All rear safety belts and the safety belt for the front passenger can be locked against pulling out to secure child restraint systems.
Locking safety belt
- Secure the child restraint system with the belt.
- Pull out the belt webbing completely.
- Allow the belt webbing to be pulled in and pull taut against the child restraint system.
The safety belt is locked.
Unlocking safety belt
- Open the belt buckle.
- Remove the child restraint system.
- Allow the belt webbing to be pulled in completely
Coupe: child restraint system with tether strap
⚠ Only use the tether-strap mounting points to secure child restraint systems, otherwise the mounting points could be damaged.
There are two additional mounting points for child restraint systems with a tether strap, refer to arrows.
Placement of tether strap
- Fold anchor fitting into upright position.
- Push head restraint downward.
- Guide tether strap over head restraint and hook onto anchor fitting.
LATCH child restraint fixing system
LATCH: Lower Anchor and Tethers for CHildren.
⚠ When installing and using LATCH child restraint systems, comply with the system manufacturer’s operating and safety instructions.
Before attaching the LATCH child’s seat, pull the belt away from the region of the child restraint fixing system.
The mounting points for the LATCH anchors are located at the positions indicated by arrows in the gap between the seat and the backrest.
⚠ Make sure that the LATCH anchor fittings are properly engaged and the child restraint system firmly contacts the backrest.
