Potential Problem:

Click here to view correct vs. incorrect routings. On the affected seats, the Lower Anchorage belt was misrouted behind the shoulder portion of the harness instead of under the crotch belt/buckle portion of the harness. In the event of a crash, a misrouted Lower Anchorage belt could affect the performance of the car seat if it is installed in the rear-facing mode and the Lower Anchorage belt is attached to the vehicle's LATCH anchors.

You are not affected by this Safety Notice if you are using the ComfortSport forward-facing & have rerouted the Lower Anchorage belt according to the instruction manual for use in this mode.

If you are using a ComfortSport outlined in the information above in the forward-facing mode, this Safety Notice does not apply to you. Rerouting the Lower Anchorage belt according to the instruction manual for forward-facing use will have eliminated the issue.
