Where in the back seat should it be installed for forward facing

When installed in the middle, with all latches attached, the seat leans quite a bit to the left, no matter what i do to fix it. i want to know if i should install to either side instead to insure maximum safety for my child?

    I have a nissan altima which does have these features and have also employed them, perhaps it's just the shape of the seat and I should move it anyway. Thanks so much for your try on the solution.

Is there a center strap for the latch system that comes from the top? This is the one that adds a lot of stability. There should be a connection on the back deck or dash of your vehicle. If it's a truck/SUV/Van, sometimes they don't have one. In this case I would use the seatbelt instead and tighten it down as much as possible.

Audi q7 problems


No, it's not a common problem. Slide your seat forward and see if you can clear anything out of the tracks. Slide it back. See if the seat back latch is bent or has a toy, seat belt, or trash under it. Lean the seat forward to get maximum view of the latch mechanism. If it's still broken take it to a body shop because they deal with this stuff all the time after accidents. The body shop is preferable to the dealership unless you have a warranty covering the seat.

Power seat


Most Fordicon1.png products are designed so the seat belt latch by the center console moves with the seat. The bottom of the latch rides on the seat rail, and with time sometimes it builds up a little play on the rail. As the seat moves forward or back, the seat belt guide often tilts forward or back, just a bit, on the rail, and gets stuck. So you can move forward or back just a bit, but then it jams and you can hear the motor, but can go no further.

The long term fix is to remove the seat, disassemble the seat belt guide and rail, and usually replace some parts.

But the short term solution is often to simply hold on to the seat belt latch and rock it forward and away from the seat as you try to go forward or back. Or, sometimes it works besticon1.png to rock it backwards and away from the seat as you try to move forward or back. It all depends on which way it is binding.

There's no guarantee that it won't jam again if you move it all the way back or forward, but once you find the right position to hold the seat latch in while moving the seat, you should be able to re-adjust it where you need it to be.

Driver's side power seat won't move back but will move forward, up and down

Bought used Britax Marathon and Roundabout carseats, without the manaul. Need directions on how to install- rear facing for now, but will need directions on forward facing as well.


Go to the Britax website they have a pretty detailed explaination. Basically use the latch clips put your knee in it and pull tight. where you get the real security is though the tether that comes of the back of the headrest, you attach that to the floor clip in your car or under the front seat if you dont have one.

Rear Facing UAS strap can't feed through?


Are you sure you're looking at the UAS/LATCH strap and not the top tether?
Your seats should have a long strap with a hook at each end that goes through the belt path (the UAS strap) and another at the top, for top tethering once you turn them forward facing.
The UAS strap may be hooked onto the sides of the seat or bundled together underneath...take another look at your manual to find out where they store it.
Alternately, install with the seat belt - neither LATCH/UAS or seat belt is "safer" than the other...the LATCH/UAS is just supposed to be more convenient.

How do you install the car seat for rear facing?


Hey Just posting this for future reference for other people since I see that you posted over a month ago :) ..

To install the car seat in rear facing I used the latch system. (you can use the latch system if your vehicle has latches..they are tiny metal bars in between the seats)

First of all with this dumb car seat I found out that the latch system was not in the proper place so if you find that yours is not where the diagram shows (in the manual) then you'll have to take off the seat cover and manually put them in their place. Then go ahead and clip onto the latches in the rear facing position. If the car seat is too far forward then inline the seat. If the car seat is still not leaning far enough back to be level with the ground (there should be two level marks on the top/side of the car seat) place a rolled towel (or roll a 2x4 in a rolled towel like i did) then clip onto the latches. Hope this helps someone.

LATCH Attached?


The latch can be used in the rear facing position.

On mine there was a screw which secured the nylon to the seat.

You need to remove the screw and remove the LATCH belt.

The LATCH belt must then be threaded through the belt location under the child's seat, rather than behind.

Pay attention if there are any arrows on your LATCH belt which point up, so that you thread the belt the right way. Remember that the seat is going to be rear facing! : )

On the side of my seat it shows a picture with the LATCH in use, threaded underneath the child's seat. Maybe your shows this too.

Hope this works for you!

Instruction for installing Evenflo Triumph Car Seat. We are the grandparents and our granson is staying with us for a few days. Our daughter is loanig us their car seat, but won't be there to help instal...


On the back of the car seat you should have a black hook with a safety latch on it connected to a adjustable strap. You will require an anchor point to connect this to in the back of your car, depending on your car (sedan, station wagon,4x4 ect) your anchor point will have a small removable cover over it about 1 inch square or so, if you have not got one already installed make sure you get the anchor as well. This will be a small metal latch with a spacer and bolt with a safety nut the nut goes under the bottom of the parcel shelf if it is a sedan if not you won't need the nut. The the hook will attach to the anchor and then you just loosen the adjustable strap out until it is fairly loose (about 3 or 4 inches of play between the car seat and the baby seat will be fine) now if the baby is small and needs the seat to lay down ie they can't hold there head up or are to small to face forward, have the head end of the baby seat to the front of the car and set the seat belt throught the hole thats horizontal to the car seat. If they can face forward same thing just stand seat upright and feed the seat belt through the horizontal holes. The hole for the seat belt should be about 2 to 3 inches high and about 4 or 5 inches long. Just becareful not to put the seat belt over the childs belts on the baby seat. Then just tighten the adjustable ******** the baby seat until firmly tightened against the car seat and you are done. The baby seat will still move a bit from side to side but if it moves more than 3 inches or so tighten the adjustable strap even more.
