Instruments and warning/indicator lamps

Seat belts must be worn on
every journey, even on short
trips in town. This applies to the
front and rear seats. To ensure
that the seat belts, belt tensioners and airbags are fully effective, note the following points:
Adjust seat and sit in
correct position
The front seats should not be
positioned too close to the steering wheel or dashboard. Maintain a distance of at least 25 cm
from the steering wheel. It is important to sit in a normal, upright position and set the backrest so it is fully against your
back. The top of the head
restraint should be at eye level
(or higher). Put your feet in a
comfortable position in the footwell.
Wear the seat belt
correctly
Make sure that the shoulder
section of the belt is positioned
over the centre of the shoulder,
and move the lap section as far
down over the hips as possible.
The belts should always be worn
so that they fit tightly (see illustration).
Safety of children in the vehicle
Category 0
Category 1
Children under 12 should travel
on the rear seat. They must be
protected by a child restraint
system which complies with the
European standard ECE R 44 and
is suitable for the child’s weight
and height. The safest place for
the child restraint system is
behind the front passenger’s
seat. Make sure that the system
is properly secured. The retractor
mechanism of the seat belts
can be locked to secure a child
safety seat.
Please observe the notes in the
Audi Owner’s Manual and refer
to the manufacturer's instructions for the child seat.
Category 2
Category 0 or 0+: For babies up
to about 9 months/10 kg and
infants up to about 18 months/
13 kg.
Category 1: For small children up
to about 4 years of age/18 kg.
Category 2: For children up to
about 7 years/25 kg.
Category 3: Children over 7 years
of age but less than 1.5 metres
tall are best protected by a
booster cushion in conjunction
with the three-point seat belt.
