    RF tether anchor in a Volvo?

    Anyone actually encountered a dedicated RF tether anchor in a Volvo? I am helping a friend choose seats for a 2008 Volvo XC70. Does anyone know if it has a RF tether anchor and, if so, where I would find it?

    Thanks!

    If it's there it's attached to the seat track though it may or may not officially be one and you should still check airbag restrictions.

    Volvo has said they are, but the US owner's manuals don't call them as such.

    Thank you KQ and Wendy! I will call Volvo and confirm but I am pretty sure I found them. I think a RF radian might be the right fit for this family and so I figured I’d love to help them navigate a RF tether if possible.

    If you look at the last 2 pics in the gallery here, you'll see what they look like: https://carseatblog.com/12749/how-to...facing-tether/. The car was an S60, but same concept and the pics were taken by a trusted instructor.
