Can I also install the Maxi-Cosi 2wayPearl using the car's seat belt?
No, that is not allowed. The Maxi Cosi 2wayPearl can only be used in combination with the Maxi Cosi 2wayFix
Can I install the Maxi Cosi 2wayPearl on the front passenger seat ?
Yes if the car has ISOFIX anchor points on the front seat. When you use the 2wayPearl rearward facing it is important to always deactivate the airbag. When you use the 2wayPearl forward facing we recommend to deactivate the airbag or placing the front passenger seat in the rearmost position. Most cars, however, are not fitted with ISOFIX anchor points on the front passenger seat. This means that it is often not possible to install the car seat on the passenger seat. 
From when can I use the Maxi-Cosi 2wayPearl forward facing ?
Maxi-Cosi recommends to use the car seat as long as possible (until 105 cm or ±4 years) in a rearward facing position since this enhances the safety for your child in frontal collisions. The 2wayPearl can be used though in a forward facing position when your child is at least 15 months old. By then the child’s neck is strong enough to withstand the impulsive force of an average frontal collision.
I cannot recline the Maxi-Cosi 2wayPearl installed forward facing in the sleeping position because it interferes with the car seat bench. What can I do?
You can disconnect the ISOFIX anchors of the 2wayFix, place the 2wayPearl on it and put it in the sleeping position. Then, reconnect the ISOFIX anchors to the car.
I notice that there is some play between the 2wayPearl and the 2wayFix. Is this safe ?
To ensure that the 2wayPearl can always easily be installed onto the 2wayFix there must be some play between the tubes and hooks. This play does not affect safety in any way whatsoever
The Maxi-Cosi 2wayPearl complies to i-Size legislation. What does that mean ?

i-Size is a new legislation that aims to make car seats even safer than before. i-Size car seat offer ISOFIX installation, rearward facing travelling up to at least 15 months, and improved safety standards for additional head and neck protection. Find out more about i-Size

Where can I find the handle to adjust the recline position on the Maxi-Cosi 2wayPearl ?
The recline handle can be found at the center-bottom at the front of the car seat.
Why has the classification on the Maxi-Cosi 2wayPearl changed from kilo indication to height (or cm) indication ?
The Maxi-Cosi 2wayPearl complies to the new i-Size legislation and this change is part of i-Size. It is done in order to make it easier for parents to choose the right car seat for their child, and thereby minimize premature up-sizing of the car seat.
Until what height can I use the maximum recline position in rearward facing with the 2wayPearl ?

When using the 2wayPearl in a rearward-facing position, the maximal recline position may only be used for a child with a maximum length of 97 cm.
