Question about Baby Gear
We have a Maxi-Cosi forward facing car seat for our 2.5 yrs old son. The central strap that is pulled to tighten the straps around him has come out / been pulled out from the back. I can't get it fitted back in. Can I fix this? If so, how or should I take it back to a professional repairer?
I would always suggest that you take this back to the retailer to have the part professionally repaired, or contact www.maxi-cosi.com who will be able to advise you.
I hope this helps.

Just did it. It took two of us, but only a couple of minutes and no
tools (except a table knife) once we'd worked out what the problem was. The
reason the strap doesn't thread easily through the slot is that there is a sprung
two-part mechanism that needs to be held open. One person threads the strap through
while the other keeps the mechanism open.
1) Find the slot under the
chair that the strap goes into - turn the seat upside down; it's a thin gap you
can feel with your fingertip when you run your finger along the narrow back of
the metal strip under the front of the seat (not the base).
2) Remove the metal rod
that attaches the grey reclining lever. The rod is about 20 cm long and can be pushed
out without tools. Removing this rod seems to make it easier to open the buckle
mechanism. When replacing the rod later, you just have to line it up carefully with
holes (we used a torch to help us see them)
Make sure the strap passes under the metal rod at the bottom of the seat
back (you can see how here in a small photo here: http://www.englishforum.ch/attachments/sale-wanted/37565d1327058634-sale-maxi-cosi-tobi-car-seat-9mths-3-yrs-zh-maxi_cosi_tobu_small.jpg)
4) Push back buckle as
far as it will go (it goes back past vertical easily, then needs another firmer
Hold the buckle in this backwards position.
Insert a table knife (rounded and blunt, not sharp) into the space under
the buckle and push back the sprung, hinged plastic part that the knife touches
at the back.
Person 1 then threads the strap back through the slot, pushing until then
end comes out.
Tie a knot in the end of the strap so you don't accidentally pull it
Replace the metal rod in the reclining mechanism.
