    Depends what type of seat it is. If it's an isofix type, then it will just clip onto the isofix anchors that are located behind the bench of the rear seat where the backrest meets the seat. The anchors are little metal loops about 30cm apart. Or...the non isofix type of car seat just uses your seatbelt to secure the seat in. Instructions usually on the side of the seat!
    Hope that helps

    If it's an isofix seat it will clip to the fixings between the cushions in the back seat. If not it will need to be fixed in with the car's seatbelt; however the routing of the belt will be seat specific. There maybe some instructions on the side of the seat.

    Is her child seat an Isofix one? If it is then your car has the Isofix points where the seat back meets the base.

    If the child seat isn't Isofix then you just need to fasten it in with the seat belt according to the child seat instructions.
