Removal of Pad for Washing

I am so frustrated.  I know that the harness straps need to be removed in order to remove the pad.  However, the harness straps are weaved into a box that do not fix through the slots in the seat.  I tried to remove the straps from this box in order to have the straps fit through the slots but was unsuccessful.  Please help.

How to remove maxi cosi cabrio harness straps


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)

How do i move the straps to a higher/ lower **** ??


Undo the popper on the shoulder harness pads and slide pad down length of harness. You will reveal a metal D ring which is where the harness is attached to the anchor point. Unhook this ring. Remove the top of the seat fabric from the sub seat (seat frame) and you will find further sets of anchor points behind the fabric. Post required anchor point through the hole it lines up with and re-attach harness, then put harness pad back into position and do up popper.

How do you move the straps for a bigger child

Undo the popper on the shoulder harness pad. Slide the pad down the length of the shoulder harness strap.
Unhook the metal D ring.
Feed the short length, low down anchor point back in behind the seat fabric. Bring the longer length, higher up anchor point out at the desired height.
Re-attach the D ring. Adjust the harness straps accordingly.
Slide harness pad back up shoulder harness and re-attach popper.

Need to remove the cover from a britax eclipse

Press and hold down the harness release button. With your other hand below the chest pads, pull the shoulder straps forward as far as possible. With the Eclipse Si fully reclined, open the seat-belt guard at the back of the shell. Pull the yoke out from behind the seat and unhook both shoulder straps. Pull the cover from the top of the seat so that you can see the slots in the seat shell. Pull each shoulder strap and chest pad strap forward and towards the centre of the shell, easing the metal tab and straps through the slot. Then thread them through to the front of the cover. Unfasten the buckle and remove the comfort pad. Gently pull the cover off the seat, easing the shoulder straps, chest pads, harness buckle and adjuster strap through the slots in the cover.

Need to replace the driver's door interior door opening assembly

Hi there.

The procedure is roughly the same for all mk3 x types.
You need to remove all the screws on the armrest and on the ashtray, then undo all the plastic clips using screwdrivers on the panel.

You find detailed instructions on links below, I quote:

" remove two screws at the bottom of the armrest.
pull out ash tray.
remove screw in the middle of the ash tray holder.
pull up on armrest, it should pop up, then pull it out
start at bottom right of door and start popping out the plastic clips (all the way around the door)
(remove speaker wires)
push up door panel - done"

1995 Mercury Cougar Door Panel Removal

This nearly drove me crazy on our 1994 Cougar.
First remove the electric switch cover(window and mirror controls). Just pops out with a pry. Remove the harness attachments You will see a single screw into the door holding a bracket between door pad and door frame. Remove it.
Second, remove the door lamp plastic cover at the bottom rear of the door. You will find a second screw in there on the upper right corner. Remove it and you are ready. Pull the whole door pad upward and it comes right off. No popem plastic clips or anything else. Just 3 or 4 quarter circle retainers that pop over into the door when you push the pad back down

Garage Sale Car Seat

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.
