Rear-facing infant carriers must not be used on a front-passenger seat where an active passenger airbag is fitted
One of the most important things to remember is that rear-facing child seats and active passenger airbags don't mix - in fact they're a potentially lethal combination in a crash.
Rear-facing seats must not be used on a passenger seat where an active passenger airbag is fitted. Severe injury or death could result if the bag is triggered.
For forward facing child restraints you can leave the airbag active and move the car seat back on its runners as far as it will go. Airbag size and performance does vary so check the car handbook for model specific advice.
