Child Seat, Integral
The optional child seat is an integral part of the rear seat back frame.
WARNING: ALL BUILT-IN CHILD RESTRAINTS, INCLUDING SEATS, BUCKLES, RETRACTORS, SEAT LATCHES, INTERLOCKS, AND ATTACHING HARDWARE SHOULD BE INSPECTED BY A QUALIFIED DEALER TECHNICIAN AFTER ANY COLLISION. IF THE CHILD SEAT WAS IN USE DURING A COLLISION, FORD RECOMMENDS REPLACING IT. HOWEVER, IF THE COLLISION WAS MINOR AND A QUALIFIED TECHNICIAN FINDS THAT THE CHILD RESTRAINTS DO NOT SHOW DAMAGE AND CONTINUE TO OPERATE PROPERLY, THEY DO NOT NEED TO BE REPLACED. BUILT-IN CHILD SEATS NOT IN USE DURING A COLLISION SHOULD ALSO BE INSPECTED AND REPLACED IF EITHER DAMAGE OR IMPROPER OPERATION IS NOTED.
The rear seat back must be fully locked in the upright position before the integral child seat can be opened for use. The integral child seat must be in the full upright closed position before the rear seat back latch release buttons can be depressed or the pull straps can be pulled to allow the rear seat back to be placed in the horizontal position.
