We just purchased a 2000 Chrysler Grand Voyager. It has emergency locking retractors only and does *not* have LATCH so I need some advice on proper installation. The owner's manual says to pull up on the latch plate in order to lock the lap belt for carseat installation, but is that adequate? Do I need to use a separate locking plate? If I install with the locking plate, it ends up awfully close to the latch plate and I don't think that's right...how do I fix that? The manual also says there are tether anchors behind some of the rear seats, but it doesn't say exactly where and I cannot find them...where are they?
I can use the rear middle lap belt to secure the car seat until I get all this figured out, but we've got a little one coming and I'll have to use the seatbelt installation with at least one of the seats. Any help would be appreciated.
