Question 2018 Mercedes GLC - installing rear facing car seat w/ Clek Foonf


New member
We had to get a new car (after 11.5 years...I miss my old car so much). The Foonf installs very easy, and well; however, there are no lower anchors in this car. my other car had lower anchors in front of all the seats (not the anchors in the seats...our new car has that...I'm referred to the anchors on the floor...sorry if my language is off....we haven't had to deal with this issue for awhile). Our son is 5 and disabled and will thus likely be rear facing for the life of this car (we tend to keep our cars for at least 10 years to get our money's worth and I love the safety features of these cars. My R Class saved our lives on at least one occasions, perhaps more).

I have to admit I'm really upset about this. I can't find any place in the floor of the car (or the back seat, etc.) that will allow me to attach the belt (sorry....can't recall the name of that piece).

can anyone help? i know that others have attached this piece to other areas (that are connected to the car's frame) but i can't locate anything like that. everything on the front seat (in front of the car seat) moves with the front attaching there would cause that piece to move and/or me to have to adjust it anytime someone rides with me (granted, that is not often).

argh! i wanted to just love this car, add the car seat and go! now im fretting about getting a floor anchor.

thanks for any help,

Do you mean an anchor for the tether strap?
You do not use that rear-facing with your Foonf. It's for forward-facing. :)
