'93' 940 estate:- baby seat (uk)

Advice please.

I have a '93' 940 2.0T estate 113k miles (no air bags fitted). I have just
become a proud granddad, before the birth I went with my daughter to
'Mothercare' for the pram/buggy.
My daughter chose a modern style buggy with a detachable baby car seat.
Being safety minded particular attention was paid to the fitting and safety
aspects. Everything seemed okay.
I looked forward to the occasions when I would be able to take the baby out
in my car. My daughter has a previously styled Ford Fiesta, she has
experienced no problems fitting the baby seat to the front passenger seat.
Her only problem has been in relation to the rear seat. Namely the seat belt
is not long enough to secure the baby seat using the correct seat slots.
I thought to myself no problem with Volvo, being safety concious and having
a child seat incorporated into the rear seat arm rest. WRONG. It appears the
seat belts both front and rear are not long enough to place round the baby
seat, even moving the front seat to obtain optimum belt length.
I find it hard to believe that the likes of a 'oldish' Ford fiesta can
accept a baby seat but not a 'safe Volvo'.
Has anyone else experienced this problem, if so, what is the solution.

Many thanks Keith

i never had a problem w/93's and car seats...
you may be best off just buying on and leaving
your own seat in the 940 ... the seats sometimes
can be a bitch to put in, take out ... move from
one car to another, etc...

when the kiddies are small, you face them backwards..
you might need a special seat belt clip to sinch down
the belt itself...(from friction)....

good luck !!!
