FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q: Can the Young Expert Plus child car seat still be used after an accident, if a child was sitting in it?
A: Damage, which may not be visible to the untrained eye, may occur to the seat at an impact speed of just 10 km/h. We recommend that you err on the side of safety and replace the child car seat.
Q: Can the Young Expert Plus child car seat still be used after an accident, if a child was not sitting in it?
A: Many different factors play an important role, such as the impact speed, the type of crash, etc. In this case, the seat should be replaced.
Q: Can the Young Expert Plus child seat be used on board aircraft?
A: No, this child seat is not permitted to be used on board aircraft.
Q: The belt is too tight for my child. Do I have to change to the follow-on seat now?
A: When children wear thick jackets in the car in winter, the belts may be too short to secure your child comfortably. Usually, the children have reached the upper end of the weight category for which the child seat in question is designed. In principle, however, it would be better to dispense with excess clothing, rather than change to the follow-on seat too early. You should therefore dress your child appropriately to fit within the belts and regulate the temperature in the car. Only change to the follow-on seat when your child has reached maximum weight for the seat.
Q: My child opens the belt buckle during the ride. What can I do?
A: The belt buckles on the child seats must be made so that a rescuer can free the child quickly following an accident. That means the opening button must be conspicuously marked in red and the operating force must not exceed a certain maximum value. The consequence of this is that children may occasionally be able to open the belt buckle themselves. In this situation, explain to the child that the car can only move when the belt buckle is closed. This “educational measure” should be repeated as often as required. For children with disabilities, body restraint systems can be used, which make it harder for them to reach to belt buckle.
Q: Can the cover of the Young Expert Plus child seat be replaced?
A: Despite our high-quality fabrics, the covers will wear with time: sunlight and dirt will take their toll on the fabric. RECARO original replacement covers are available from your retailer in a limited number of designs. Please note that the cover is part of the design certification of the child seat – therefore, only an original RECARO cover should be used.
Q: Is the cover washable?
A: All our covers can be hand or machine washed at a maximum temperature of 30°C. Read the washing and care instructions on the cover. Use a slower spin speed and do not tumble dry.
Q: My vehicle only has a lap belt/2-point belt on the centre seat of the rear bench. Can I still use the Young Expert Plus child seat?
A: No, you can anchor this child seat to the Isofix point of your vehicle with the aid of the Isofix base or secure it with the vehicle’s 3-point belt.
Q: Can I also use the Young Expert plus child seat in a vehicle without Isofix connectors?
A: Yes, this child seat can also be secured very simply using the vehicle’s 3-point belt.
Q: Will the Young Expert plus child seat, together with the Isofix base, fit any type of car?
A: Our Isofix system is semi-universally certified. The system can be used in any Isofix vehicle in which the base can be latched in place, where the seat can be fitted according to the instructions, and where the vehicle manufacturer allows the use of semi-universal Isofix systems.Please see our Isofix type list for vehicles tested by us.
Many, especially older vehicles only have a 2-point belt (lap belt) in the centre. RECARO child seats must not be secured with this belt system.
Q: Can I have the Isofix attachment points retrofitted to my vehicle?
A: This depends on the manufacturer and model year of your vehicle, so please enquire with the manufacturer/car dealer.
