Re: removing seat cover

Dorel Juvenile Group manufactures these car seats for under the Cosco brand. You should check out their web site.

  • Check out the recall notices and make sure your seat is not listed.
  • Register your car seat so that you are informed of any future recalls.
There does not seem to be any Manuals on their website, but they do list a phone number. 1-800-544-1108

When I took mine apart I did the following.
  • Take many pictures of it first so you can see how it goes back together.
  • Put all of the parts in a container so you don't lose any.
  • Start by removing the screws on the headrests. There are four of them.
  • Using a flat screwdriver on the left side and a pair of pliers on the right (as you are facing it) pull the metal rod from the hinge to the right. Make sure you don't damage the springs.
  • The screwdriver can be used to gently pry the square metal strap anchor from the plastic holder. It is tight!
  • Then fish the anchor through the seat and fabric.
  • The shoulder straps have to go from the front through the fabric.
  • There is a front clip that is located between the child's legs. I had to finesse the fabric cover around this.
I think that is all I did. We washed the cover in COLD water on delicate and soaked it overnight to get it clean. Hang dry!

My daughter seems to be very uncomfortable when in our Britax Marathon convertible car seat. She cries everywhere we go and tenses up her body and seems to be in pain. We can't figure out what is...

Well the first thing to ask the seat new, if so did she do this in previous seats. If the issue is new and the seat is one she did not have issues with before you can try to remove the cover to be sure nothing is poking her. Also if the straps are too snug around the thighs it will make for a rough ride for the child. If all else fails return it to the store and dont be afraid to bring her along to "Test" a different seat prior to buying it!

My daughter puked all over her car seat and I need to wash the cover. The instructions say I have to remove the base and the harness to get the cover off....I can't for the life of me get the base off! ...

I imagine you've already fixed this problem by now. I have two of these car seats and it took me the longest time to figure it out. If you still need help, let me know. You're right, the instructions aren't as easy as they seem.

How do i remove my car seat cover?

Go to the manufacturer website and enter the information requested. I was going to do it for you, but you must have information from the label on your seat to go further.
The user manual is downloadable. My son used to get car sick and did the same to me, what a mess.

Good Luck! from Moms Just Know

What model do you have?

You can call graco at: Graco Customer Service is available Monday through Friday, 8am to 5pm Eastern Time.

Ensure you do NOT wash the straps/harness, as it will make it unsafe and you will need to replace it.

They also have an online manual fi that will assist you. I checked my seat, and it is an older snug ride with no straps.

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. 

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