How to unthread / lower harness on evenflo infant carseat
I cannot figure out how to take the straps out to lower the harness on an evenflo infant (reversible) carseat. In the back, I push down on the plastic small part of the back of the seat to slide out the thing holding the harness straps in. Then there is a lever you can push up to loosen the straps, and I tried just threading the harness out that way but it seems impossible and I'm worried that if I force it out I wont be able to get it back in. The first part to unthread is easy, but then its threaded through 2 more times.
The seat doesnt say what it is, but it has a z handle, is mostly pink, and has 5 pt harness. It kind of looks like the evenflo embrace I see online.

The harness of a carseat should never be removed or replaced by anyone other than a trained engineer due to the safety implications of it being incorrectly replaced.
The carseat fabric should be removed from this carseat and they can be washed - the harness itself should be cleaned in place in the carseat using a solution of stain remover and water and a small scrubbing brush or hard scourering pad to clean the harness. Excess water in the carseat should be dried immediately and thoroughly to prevent any parts rusting. Loose crumbs can be removed using a vacuum cleaner.
Alternatively the carseat can be sent in for the engineers to replace with a new one. Inspection and single repair (replacement of the harness) plus safety checks and courier collection and repair can be booked for 39.99GBP if you're in the UK by calling 01284 413 141 Mon-Thur 8.30-6.30 / Fri 8.30-4.30 (Excluding Bank Holidays)

Hello - The harness straps of any carseat should not be removed as the re-threading of them requires specialist tools. Due to the safety implications of the harness being incorrectly re-fitted, the carseat would need to be sent to the engineers for inspection and repair as required. If you're in the UK please contact the customer services department on 01284 413 141 Mon-Fri 8.30-4.30 to discuss.
You have to unloop the straps from the gold metal bar. This will allow the straps to be free so you can feed them thru the holes and re-feed them into the proper height hold. You will than noticed that there are loops at the very end of the straps which you can loop back onto the gold metal bar.
If you push down on the top of the handle you should then be able to move it. Also, to remove the straps you have to feed the bottom portion of the straps from underneath the seat up through first and then you should be able to feed through the material to remove the pad.
ON THE BACK OF YOUR CARSEAT ARE 2 METAL LATCHES ON EACH SIDE. REMOVE ONE BE PUTING THE STRAP THROUGH AND ADJUSTING IT TO YOUR CHILDS FIT.YOU COULD ALSO PUT IT THROUGH A SECONDARY HOLE IF YOUR CARSEAT HAS ONE TO PROPERLY HOLD YOUR CHILD SAFELY.LET ME KNOW IF I WAS ANY HELP...
How do I care and clean for my PortAbout 3/PortAbout V infant car seat?
To clean pad slide the elastic loops of the seat pad off of the seat shell. Remove the harness system. Cloth pad, canopy, and head support may be machine washed separately cold water, delicate cycle, tumble dry 10-15 minutes, low heat. Wipe straps, buckles, and harness adjusters with warm damp cloth and mild soap. Air dry. NOTE: DO NOT submerge harness assembly in water. To help protect the vehicle upholstery, place a towel beneath and behind the child restraint.
