Question Child safety seat mounts

A bit unusual topic but I have a young grandson and need to mount a safety seat in the back but can't locate any anchor points? Are there some hidden somewhere?

I suspect that depends upon the model year...

On my 2003 S430, you press down to open the junction between the rear seat bottom and the back. There are two steel loops on each side. There is another steel loop just behind the headrests.

These are shown in the owners manual.

Thanks Wally- I'll check that out.

My owners manual doesn't describe this.

However, I have the back seat bench removed but I don't know how to remove the back rest part of the seat to look for anchor points. Everything seems to be covered by some sort of black plastic covered foam on the body. Underneath each side is a mount that has 2 Torx bolts. Presumably the one holding the back rest is the one parallel to the floor not the one going downwards into the floor? I have a nasty habit of removing too much!

You should not have to remove the backrest to see the child seat mounts - if they are there. Sounds as if the 2000 doesn't have them.

IIRC, and it's been a while, but I don't think pre facelift Cars had them

We have used the design of Child Seat that attaches Via the Adult Seat Belt when the Grand Children were small and allowed in my Car a couple of years ago

HTH,

In the US the federal law required the anchor and latch system in all MY04 cars.

Thanks for the advice guys. I'll do more investigating as I gotta get my seat installed. Fortunately I have a safety seat with both types of restraints ( Harness and using lap sash)

Just checked the project 2000 S500 (yeah, I'm up kinda late). Nope, not there. The 2003 S430 and 2006 S600, by contrast, both have them, but those are post-facelift cars.

Looks like you're using the "old school" child seats that use the seat belt for anchoring. Hey, they still work.
