Reclining back problem

I am unable to raise the seat back up to an upright position. There seems to be a problem with the pull string. It lies flat without any problem, but when trying to pull the strings back it will only go so far so that my child is unable to sit upright. It will go only go up about half way from what it's supposed to. Thank you for your help. This pushchair was given to me second hand and it's in perfect condition apart from me being albe to place the seat in an upright position. The draw strings will only raise the seat a little.

A friend of mine just figured it out. i have been working on this for so long. i felt so silly. i was really convinced it was a design problem. obviously the engineers at peg perego are a smidge more capable than i gave them credit for. there are gray loops on the back of the seat. they fit on the sides of the stroller. you have to pull out the insert where you put in the sunshade cover and then slide they gray loops down and re-snap the sunshade inserts. this holds the seat up in a more upright position. hope it helps.

Is the back supposed to be in a fixed position or is it held upright by the back of the seat of the car

There are multiple fixed recline positions. It sounds like your seat is not catching properly once the recline bar is pulled. Please contact Britax (888-427-4829) and make them aware of the situation.

Rear seat belt is stuck in recline position. I recline the rear seat to make room and I can not raise the seat back up. The seat belt is not allowing the seat to raise

The problem:
The set belt stop has been lost so the seat belt retracts too far when the seat is laid flat. When laid flat the release mechanism lock as it should when not level. So the seat cannot be raised up as the belt is too tight and locked.
The Solution:
1) Push the two little clips to release and remove the headrests.
Pull the grey lever on the right of the seat base, lift seat base up and forward toward the front seat..
2) See two red capped leversat the back of the two seat hinges and lever them to the upward position, this releases the seat.
Rock the very heavy seat unit upwards and lift complete unit upwards.
3) Take it out of the car and turn 180% so that the back of the seat and base are in the upward position and the seat belt will pull out as it should
4) Replace the missing belt locking stop (I used a tie pin permanently fixed using super glue).
5) Fold seat back down and test then either re-fit seat unit or leave out to decrease fuel consumption.. 2_5_2014_8_03_56_pm.jpg 5f6d2b58-2927-4184-9c82-d111e3a9591a.jpg e9f641fc-5fbc-4c21-a371-ff371d942b1a.jpg a357ac71-d6ed-4dc7-999c-04367d3d6e72.jpg

How to fold a beby trend expedition single

• Close the canopy as described in the canopy section. Recline seat by releasing buckle as described in seatback positioning section.
• The stroller is folded by simultaneously pulling each trigger fold. . When the fold latches are released, the handle will begin to fall toward the floor. Release the fold buttons and press downward on the stroller handle until the stroller is completely folded. Secure the stroller in the folded position by hooking the fold latch, located on the right side of the stroller, over the rivet that protrudes from the frame.
* The canopy features a ratchet system that allows the canopy to be moved forward to block the sun or wind. To adjust the canopy’s position, push forward or backward on the canopy until the canopy is in the desired position. See figure 23.
* The seat has a multiple position recline that is controlled by a strap and buckle assembly behind the seat. . To recline the seat, loosen the strap through the buckle and adjust to the required recline position. To place the seat back in the upright position, press upward on the seat back with one hand while pulling the strap through the buckle with the other. The strap will lock automatically.

Stuck in recline

I know this post is old but I figured somebody w/the same problem might come across this. I had the same problem with my Marathon today. I also own a Roundabout & had no problem changing the recline myself. When my husband came home he took a look & fixed it. All he did was put it in the upright postion , held it in place & turned the seat on it's side & pushed up on the base and it clicked! he pushed on one of the corners (but I don't know if that even matters)

Need to recline seat

On the back of the the seat back is a plastic tab connecting two lanyards/cords. These cords are used to adjust the seatback angle from the recline to full up-right position.
