we have a Citroën xsara picasso with room for 3 seats in back. Have put rf baby seat for newborn behind driver. Front facing seat for 2 yr old behind passenger, and hi back booster for 3.5 yr old in middle.

Side seTs have oxoxox but middle doesn't. Also middle has o ly diagonal belt not lap belt. Is booster safely secured that way? Is there a model that is designed for diagonAl-only belt?

It does have both if you look at the belt there are two buckle. hold the end buckle that one goes in the one it will fit in then the other one goes in the other then you have a lab and diagonal. If your not sure what I mean look in the hand book.

Lots of car belts work like this I had a c4 last now have a scenic dh clio is the same.

You may find it easier to put the rf seat the side that has the buckle for the middle seat (the last buckle, once you have done the first one you don't undo it again) then older dc wont undo ff seat and you could help if needed. Hope this makes sence

I'm a bit embarrassed now - I've had my Picasso for six years and had never worked that out. blush Thanks notfarming.
