2010 Subaru forester middle seat install


New member
I just did a search and it does not look good :( Shaelyn has suddenly not been feeling well in the car and on our recent road trip, got sick on the way there and on the way home. There is no recovering the FR85 harness so i will order another one but I think she would do much better in the center where she could look out the front of the car. It is obvious the FR85 won't work because it is huge and the cybex x-fix is also rather large. I am willing to get new seats if necessary but reading the threads, it seems it has been deemed impossible to install anything int he that center seat, let alone something that I could fit a booster next to. It would also have to be a seat with a higher harness height since Shae has a long torso. We currently have a GN, FR85, 2 TBs and a cybex. Has anyone ever had anything install in that middle seat?

The 2009 and newer Foresters have crazy humps in the middle and VERY indented outboard seats. I couldn't get a good install of either a MA or RN in the center. I tried all sorts of 3-across combos and couldn't get a single one to work.
