SOURCE: is the seat safe; states on back not to use after december 2004

No it is not "safe" to use car seats after the dates printed on the back for simple issues such as wear and tear, weakening in the restraints, and just older designs that have been reinforced upon since thhat particular car seat was manufactured. I am a mother of three with two still in car seats and I would not suggest using the car seat. Also, if you have a used seat or plan on buying used make sure it is from a trusted source for the simple reason you do not want to use a seat that has been in an accident. In the state of Ga, it is actually against the law to use a seat that has been invovled in an accident.

You do not have to do what the insurance company wants. Call them and discuss it. Be assertive. You have the upper hand since you pay for their service. You can also report them to the state attorney general's office [they hate that!]. HOW much money are they williing to give you in comparison to what will it cost if you choose either repair or replace with used. You can always take the money directly from them and then do as you choose. J.

Does the Graco car seat base (for Graco Junior) fit into Daewoo Lanos 2004 back seats?

Best bet is to buy it and take it to your local fire department or highway patrol. Here in California the CHP, California Highway Patrol will attempt the install for free, they are trained to do so. If the officer says no then the reality is that you may want a new car. Graco seats are great and the size of seats are similar across brands. Good Luck

How to remove seat cushion for repair

Since you mention two front seats, I assume you have bucket seats. These are pretty easy to remove, just look under the seats for the 4 bolts that go into the floor. You may have to feel under the floor for the bottom end of each bolt to get a wrench on it.

The rear seat is a bit more tricky. Remove the bottom cushion first, by pushing down HARD on the front edge of the seat (SIT on it!), and then, while pushing the front edge down, also push back on the front edge of the cushion - it will move back about an inch, and that will release the hold down hook that holds it in place. Then you can just lift out the seat cushion.

The rear seat backrest has two bolts that you can get at after you remove the seat cushion - they go into the floor under the bottom edge of the rear seat backrest. Take those two bolts all the way out, and then grab the rear seat backrest, push it back toward the trunk while you lift up on the bottom edge. Don't pull it away from the metal backing, just slide it up toward the rear window - that will release it from the holding hooks at the top of the rear seat cushion and the whole cushion can be lifted out of the car.

If your car has a center console in front, or a speaker grille in the middle of the rear seat, you will probably have to look around for the mounting hardware - the console is bolted to the floor, and you will probably have to take it apart or remove the shift knob to get it out. The rear seat speaker grille, if it is between the two sides of the rear seat backrest will be bolted to the metal braces behind the rear seat. You may have to climb in through the trunk to get at those.

Just a word of caution regarding Mustangs: The floors are an important structural part of the car, since it has no frame - if the floors are rusted, the car may very well be unsafe to drive - I advise you to have it inspected at a frame shop to see if it is able to be made safe to drive before you spend a bunch of money on a losing project.

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!

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.

Booster seat

Converting the seat to a booster: (Alpha Omega Elite Deluxe 2004 version, Eddie Bauer)
After all said and done, the base can probably be left on, it helps to recline the chair when the child is asleep. If you want to leave it out, the manual says the base can be removed for narrow vehicle seats or airline use. Locate the center bar at the bottom of the seat, push the tab at the end of the bar and pull the bar out. The seat can then be separated from the base. The seat has a "kickstand" that can be pulled out to sit the seat upright. Put the bar back in the base so you don't lose it.

To remove the harness, remove the base first. Then from the back of the seat, unfasten the harness from the harness bracket. Store the bracket by looping it behind and around the back spine of the shell. You can unthread the harness from that point and pull it out. From the bottom of the seat, locate the buckle's metal clip. Insert the clip up through the shell and pad, from the front pull the buckle free from the shell. Lock latch plates into buckle for safekeeping.

Once the seat is converted to adult straps don't use the latch system; hook the hooks together to keep it from swinging around, and place the top anchorage strap behind the seat with the anchor hook under the seat.
