This is my first post on this forum as I found the forum through searching on 'booster seats for grand scenic' as a new 07 grand scenic owner i'm looking for a 'narrow' booster seat to fit into the middle rear seat (the one with the belt buckles fitted into the seat)
I was most concerned to read this thread and contacted my Renault Dealer who was confused by the info he had from Renault as to which car seats are recommended for the car.
Apparently Renault no longer sell / supply the seat that is mentioned in the guide book for use in the flip up boot seats, and they now advise against using the very rear 2 seats for any child seat whatsoever ! Bang goes my 7 seater !
They told me the KidPLus seat fits properly into the middle centre narrow seat, so i've orderd on and we'll see. They also said it fits properly in all 3 rear seats.
As for the stage 3 booster seats not allowing the seatbelt to recoil, I don't have this problem as such. The booster seat can touch / foul the seatbelt mounting point on the door pillar if it's set really high, but the belt still recoils ok when my 5 year old moves about in it. Granted the mounting of the belt is too far forward on the car so it has to come back on itself to go through the guides in the headrest of the seat, but it appears to work ok. Is this the problem mentioned at the start of this post, or is it something else ? I can see that moving the seat forwads will make things better, but as the seatbelt recoils ok, do I need to ?
Thanks and please post findings / reports, any reccomendation for a 'narrow' stage 3 booster seat that fits the middle seat properly greatly appreciated.
