While the seat belt is retracting, you should hear a ratcheting sound. The special seat belt retractor is enabled.

- Push down on the child restraint system to take up any slack.

Removing a child restraint system/ deactivating the special seat belt retractor:

- Always comply with the manufacturer's installation instructions.

- Press the seat belt release button and guide the belt tongue to the belt outlet.

The special seat belt retractor is deactivated.
