REmoving carseat cover to wash

It is an older Eddie Bauer 3 in 1 car seat that has recently been sick in. Without it I can go no where, not even into town as I have no one to watch the kids, so I have to get it washed and dried ASAP. I have the cover off, all the elastics that go through to the other side and hold it down, the problem is the plastic lined slots that hold the belts through from back to frt and around child are holding the fabric onto the frame, and I can't wiggle them or (or push or squeeze...though we did it once a year ago...) and the fabric will rip to shreds stretching around it to come off. I know we did this once but for the life of me can't figure it out now, and the manual is buried in unpacked boxes from our second move in a year. The manufacturer is not available until Monday. Can you please help?

I too have had this problem. I'm not certain that my model is the same as yours. Mine was purchased new in 2002 from Babies are Us and was approx. $250. Though color doesn't matter, mine is a brown houndstooth with a micro fiber faux suede. The way I finally did this..... as the above contributor noted, their are four difficult places to release...all are where the straps go through the fabric. Two are near the seat and two are near the shoulders. The two near the seat are held by plastic casings that should pull up about a 1/4 inch when pressure is applied. This gives you just enough room to work the fabric around these plastic pieces and remove. This is tight, but should not require ripping the fabric. Work from the narrow end first. Slide the fabric as far over as you can and then work on it like you were undoing a very tight button and button hole. The ones near the shoulder do not unbutton this way. Here, I had to litterally pop the casings free. I did this by applying even pressure on the whole cloth unit and pulling away from the actual car seat. The plastic casing pulled free of the unit and allowed me to free the cloth. I washed the cloth in the washing machine and hung to dry and it did very well. I agree that for the price we paid for this chair, it should not be THIS difficult to free to launder.

I did it.
These hard plastic pieces, 4 - 2 lap, 2 shoulder, squeeze from the back, in the middle, compressing them enough to push them out through the front, allowing all the fabric to come off where it washes beautifully in cold water and hangs to dry. The trick is getting into the back because you have to have tiny little hands and arms, with long fingers and lots and lots of strength to squeeze. It is not the easiest thing to do and you end up with sore fingers and hands, as the tools I tried to use for leverage were all too long to get into the seat from the back - It has a recline feature and a base, but if the base comes off to make this truly easier, I couldn't find it in the hour this took to take apart. Now if I can just get it all back together.... hmmmmmm. Good luck to you and thanks.

    I have the same Eddie Bauer 3-in-1 car seat (brown suede and plaid) and was able to pull all 2 sets of plastic tabs off. The approach is to pull and lean on one side to pop out the hook mechanism then do the same for the other side (don't just pull straight up - that will rip the fabric). These tabs are not designed to be popped out frequently, and would likely to wear out after 5 removals.

For the bottom portion, remove all the straps through the plastic strap guides, then expose the plastic strap guide between the bottom of the cloth seat and the plastic seat itself. (There should be about a quarter inch of exposed strap guide plastic.) Using a pair of pliers, squeeze the middle portion (from front to back) of the plastic strap guide and gently pull up and toward the front. It should come out fairly easily.

No the law does not state that you need to use a tether but you want to use to feel that your seat is more secure
