  • Frequently Asked Questions

    Q: Where can I try sitting in a RECARO seat?

    You can try out RECARO seats in our retail store in Kirchheim/Teck, or at any authorized RECARO dealer or service partner. Prior to visiting an authorized RECARO dealer or service partner, you should contact them to inquire whether they have the seat that interests you on hand for testing. You can find an authorized RECARO dealer or service partner in your area by visiting the Service page of the RECARO website.

    Q: Where can I find an ABE for RECARO seat type XY?

    All the latest versions of ABEs for RECARO seats can be found here.

    Q: Is a "TÜV" approval necessary when installing a RECARO seat?

    Installation of a RECARO seat does always have to be confirmed by a TÜV-member, according to German StVZO, § 19. This has to be confirmed by a separate document, which has to be carried in the car like the ABE. TÜV-registration is mandatory in case of imperative changes (i.e. modifications for disabled persons).

    Q: Is it possible to upgrade the car XY with a RECARO seat?

    RECARO offers seats for a wide range of cars. To find out which RECARO seat fits into your car, please check our baseframe list on the RECARO homepage under downloads.
