Lowering Rear Seat in Hyundai Santa Fe

Have done it before easily. Now can't flip up seat bottom. Only see one pull tab, thought there was 2 types attached to seat bottom. Book is useless. Sounds simple, but 2 adults cannot pull the bottom seat up in order to make the back of the SUV flat for hauling large items.

Anyone have a manual that explains it?

Re: Lowering Rear Seat in Hyundai Santa Fe

This is a real pain. There are two "tabs" as you explain. One is useless, its just a way to grab a handle on the bench. The other one, the one that you probably can't get to, is th one that matters. That is connected to a hinge that is awkwardly placed. If that cloth tabs slips under the cushion, it's next to impossible to get to by slipping your hand back there and feeling your way to getting a hold of that tab. and you'll probably scrape your skin to be sucessful. Poor design.

One seat knob is broken by you. Now if you cover the seats with loose seat cover remove from seats , now you see two knobs on your seat head right and left where one is broken . Take player and pull the broken knob gently.

There is a rod underneath with a tab that is holding the bottom on. Once you release it and pull the
rod out it is easily taken apart for cleaning.

I CANNOT get the arm-rests OFF!!!!! I read some solutions but they didn't tell me what I needed. I see the tabs you're supposed to push in so that the arm-rests will pull off, but I have pushed, pulled,...

Grab a pair of pliers! With the pliers, pull the bottom tab out towards you and slide the top tab underneath. Once the top tab is under the bottom, the armrest will pop right off.

Can't get the armrests off to clean the cover

You CAN remove the armrests- quite easily actually! All you need to do is grab a small pair of pliers. Behind each armrest are two tabs. With the pliers, pull the bottom tab out. Slide the top tab underneath the bottom. The armrest will pop right off! Which means you can wash the pad seat and all!

Bugaboo adapters for maxi cosi got stuck to the maxicosi carseat

We have just released the Bugaboo adapters by pressing buttons on the Maxi Cosi seat and gently pulling the adapters at the same time. These buttons can be found either side on the top of the seat, next to where the seat carry handles are attached. The adapters come away very easily, no force needed. (I dont know if this is true if the adapters are in the wrong way round!)

I haven't seen a video for it, but I'll try to explain it clearly. To install it with the LATCH system, locate the anchors in your car - U shaped metal anchors in the seat, where the back meets the bench part. See your car's owner's manual - many cars don't have LATCH in the middle of the back seat, so you'll have to install it in a side seat or use the seatbelt to install, instead. Recline the carseat all the way - there is a handle under the harness adjuster on the front of the seat. Pull the handle while pushing back on the top of the seat. Tuck the top tether strap under and hook it under the base or the seat - it's only used when forward facing and is dangerous if left flapping. Pull the seat cover off of the front corners of the seat. Thread the black latch belt through the rear facing belt path (the holes on the bottom front of the seat - there should be a sticker identifying the path), making sure that it does not twist and is behind, not over or in front of, the **** strap, but in front of the the slots that the bottom of the harness straps go through. Replace the seat cover. Put the carseat where you want it in the car. Look to see that the level lines on the shoulder belt positioning guide are level with the ground. Double check that the top tether is secured underneath the seat. Fasten one latch hook to the anchor in your seat, going from above the anchor, so that the clip part of the hook is on the bottom and the solid side is on top. Repeat on the other side. Kneel in the car seat to push it firmly into the seat while pulling the strap tight through the adjuster. The seat is installed tight enough when you can grab it at the belt path and can not move it more than 1 inch side to side. It is normal to be able to pull the top of the seat towards your car's seat back some. To install it with a seatbelt - (Please note - you can only install with the LATCH system OR the seatbelt - doing both together increases the stress and force on the seat and can damage it!) Recline the seat and secure the top tether as above. Place the seat in the car and make sure that the level lines are level with the ground, as above. Thread the seat belt through the rear facing belt path (again, the holes on the bottom front of the seat...look for the sticker). Thread it under the seat pad. Like above, it should go between the bottom slots for the harness and the **** strap. Buckle the seat belt. Kneel in the seat, pull the seat belt all the way out from it's feeder, and feed it back in, pulling it as tight as you can. Check for tightness as above. While your child is rear-facing, the harness should be in a slot that is even with or below his shoulders. Pull it snug - when it's tight enough, you shouldn't be able to pinch up any slack lengthwise at the shoulders or hips and it should lay in a straight line without any sagging. Make sure the chest clip is even with the baby's armpits, not over the neck or the belly. Good luck!

We're having trouble installing the Embrace Infant Car Seat 5391732 - Evenflo Eurotrek Travel System into our Audi sedan. Although we double belted it at the foot end, the base seems to just rock back and...

I had the same problem in my 240sx Nissan, I was told that because of the dip in the seat it was impossible to fasten it down properly so I went to one of those help for car seat classes that the police help you with and they told me just to take a towel and tightly roll it up and put in the dip of the seat, then fasten the base down! Hope this helps you!

Infant car seat


Although I do not know this seat, if it is a UK model you should have blue stickers located where the belt will go. Typically the European seats do fit as you suggest, lap belt over the childs legs (pull firm at that point) then the should belt over and behind babys head (pull firm again at that point). Bear in mind that the seat does not have to be rock solid, but the weight of baby will make this feel more secure and remember that if there should be any kind of impact, the seat belt is designed to lock off, hence how this works.

I hope this helps.
