Re: BRITAX FREEWAY CARSEAT MOVING AFTER FITTING
I am uncertain what country you live in... but if you stop in at the police dept. fire dept or health unit in your area they will be more then happy to help you make sure the seat is fitted properly and safely.
Most police depts run car seat clinics several times a year.
Please take a moment to rate this solution.. thanks

The carseat would require a physical fitting from trained staff prior to use to ensure it can be safely installed using the 3 point seatbelt. This is due to the fact there is no standard length for seatbelts or seatbelt webbing so we would always advise a physical fitting from trained staff for any unit being fitted with the seatbelt as it may fit one vehicle but not another of the same make, model and registration.
I would recommend contacting Britax's customer service department to ask how to put the pads back in to the Britax Traveler Plus: Consumer Services department at 1-888-427-4829 (Monday - Thursday 8:30am - 4:30pm; Friday 8:30am - 3:30pm EST).
I assume that you mean a car seat suitable for 1 to 4 years?
Unfortunately, due to so many different specifications of makes/models of cars, this is something which can't be simply guessed at. During my time of carseat fitting, I did find that BMW were probably the most reliable and best fits (Golf and Audi also very good). I would suggest that you opt for something isofix (Maxi Cosi Priori Fix/Britax Duo Plus etc) BUT and this is the main thing, go and get it phyically fitted at a well established car seat dealer.
The straps must be undone from a claw on the underside of the car seat so you have to remove the whole thing from the car. The claw is designed to keep the straps in place and this it does very well but its position on the undercarraige leaves no room for your hands and makes it near impossible to manage.
They retired the Bodyguard carseat back in 2005 so do not offer covers for this carseat. I was looking for a replacement carseat cover myself. If you know a good seamstress you may want to get one made The carseat, otherwise, is still great. I have a Parkway also that I'd like to get a replacement cover for and they retired that carseat in January of last year. It's too bad they don't carry the covers longer. Hope this helps you!
If you have a Cabrio Fix carseat, underneath the carseat should be two silver metal bars that slot into the base, if these are not on the carseat then you have the Cabrio model which is not compatible with the base.
