Hi i have got a maxi cosi cabriofix car baby car seat and cannot seem to remove the cover at the bottom where the grey circle is how do i do this and can i was the cover in the washing machine once...


Good Morning

The grey tensioner strap appears to be stitched in place but it isn't. Follow it around under the bottom of the carseat and the strap is in a piece of plastic catch shaped like an H on it's side. Wiggle one way then the other to unhook from this catch, and the carseat fabric can be removed (where the grey circle part is the fabric is tucked underneath slightly, once you've unhooked the tensioner strap you'll be able to get the fabric off easily).

Hand washing is recommended, but if you have delicate or handwash cycle on machine this is also suitable. Use a mild detergent and maximum temp 30 degrees for washing. Do not tumble dry: Do not leave in direct sunlight to dry. Ensure fabric is completely dry before putting it back on for use as damp fabrics may result in mould or mildew growth.

Remember never remove the harness straps from the carseat, the fabrics can be completely removed while the harness remains in place!

I want to wash my covers to my maxi cosi car seat ive manged to take the cover off but im stuck on how to get the cover away from the straps


Found this solution on this website, and works great!

What seems to be a sewn-up loop, is actually easy to unattach, but the trick is not explained in the manual.

Where the end of the strap seems to be holding to the seat's plastic shell, the plastic is not completely connected, there is a break in the plastic. Just move the strap left/right a bit and you will see that you can unattach it there. Then you can unthread the loose end of the strap and completely remove the cover.

Cant remove the cover off the straps at the bottom of the cabrio fix car seat i have removed it off the seat but can not remove the straps at the bottom to remove the cover


Had the same problem where you are left with the cover trapped by the quick adjust part for the shoulder straps located near the foot of the seat. The solution, the strap does detach at the front of the seat. The loop that is stiched round what feels like a solid plastic part of the base, turns out that there is a gap in the plastic so push the strap to either side and pull it out through the gap. With this removed you should now be able to remove the cover completly and bung it in the washing machine on a hand wash.

Removing seat cover maxi cosi priorifix


To be able to remove the seat cover from your seat you have to 'unhook' the seat belts at the back of the seat:
First extend the seat belt to the maximum length.
Then put the seat at the maximum recline.
At the back of the seat-'shell' you will then see a metal hook that hold the shoulder straps: unhook and pull forward.

Reassembly is just the reverse.

A few more tips when removing the cover from a PrioriFix: take care not to damage the white extruded foam when pulling the belts forward and when taking off the cover. When the foam is not protected by the padding it may easily snap.

The seat padding is cold wash only and no spin-dry, otherwise the seams may loosen.

REmoving carseat cover to wash


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 took the cover off to wash it but now can't figure out how to put it back on. I think it is a 5 point connection system model 8465wsr3


Its a GREAT seat! I have the same one!
Assuming you removed the harness.

The easiest way I have found to do this is , place the seat on the ground and put the cover on the seat. There are some elastic fastners that are loops on some models, that go onto small plastic poles. IF you don't have this, it is ok.


Then clip the harness together at the chest clip, and at the buckle. This helps you not get so twists.

Put each of the top shoulder straps through the hole in the seat cover AND the plastic of the shell of the seat. For this rear facing seat, the straps should be At or BELOW the shoulders of the infant riding in the seat. When both straps are through the plastic shells, you slide them onto the metal flat mushroom shaped piece on the back of the seat that is attached to the adjustor strap.

Pass the middle strap (the buckle) through the hole in the seat cover and shell. Pull to ensure it catches.
NExt, take the small metal cliped bottoms of the harness, and pass them through the seat cover and seat shell in the bottom of the seat, they are in the crease of the side/bottom of the plastic shell. Once they are passed through, give them a good pull to ensure they catch. Repeat for the other side, and you are good to go!



If you washed the harness, in the machine, it needs to be thrown out, call Graco for a replacement.

Credits for this go to my wife who figured it out after I already thought we should return the seat to the shop. :p

Can't remove carseat cover


There is a trick to this. All the straps are kinda connected together. The main harness is one piece, a clever clip on each of the lap section. (one on each side) needs to be removed to allow the belt to slide through the seat and cover openings. Once here the strap needs to go through the actual seatbelt buckle. Once the buckles are off you can pull the harness through the shoulder opening. The note to take here is that the harness runs through a loop on the adjuster belt (a narrower belt that runs from the back of the chair under the it to and through the adjusting fastener) Once through the loop you can pull the main harness strap free from the chair. Now the next part, depress the release clip of the adjuster and with the other hand pull this belt free from adjuster. It may require a bit of two handed work as belt nears the end. You should now have a wide belt, a narrow belt, 2x clips and 2x harness buckles. All you need to do now is remove the adjuster which usually requires the manipulation of a metal 'B' buckle which is sewn into the loop to be twisted sideways to allow it to pass through the opening. You are home free now. The cover should be elasticated around the edging and easily removed for washing.(you can also put the straps in too) Now is also a good time to just give the actual seat a good clean too. Refitting is reversal of removal. However REMEMBER and NOTE the way clips,buckles and which openings the straps went through when removing. There are usually a couple. Mark the items with a marker if you think you'll forget. On refitting you might want to put it to the next one up. (as a child grows ie. the shoulder straps should be above the shoulders when the child is seated, equally important is they must be the same on both sides.) I think there might be a couple of slots for the adjuster strap. You might want to move that one out too. Have your child seated in the chair before you start the reassembly and mark out the openings the staps need to pass through which would be most comfortable for the him/her. Good Luck.
