Question about Cosco Alpha Omega Elite 5-Point 22-155
I NEED TO TAKE THE FABRIC OFF THE CAR SEAT TO WASH IT AND AM AFRAID TO PRY IT OFF AT THE PLACE THE BUCKLE GOES THROUGH IN THE SEAT. HOW IS IT ATTACHED.
The straps need to be removed from the metal clip in back, and then the plastic grommets must be pried loose from under the fabric with side pressure and an upward push. Its not easy. Bad design. There are no screws involved, but a standard screwdriver can help with the release. The oblong grommets have ridges that must be compressed to release.

Remove the base by pushing the metal rod on the bottom through the side that is open. This will allow you to remove the straps that hold the covering in place.

My base and seat do not come apart. Here was the easiest way I found to remove the cover: * Gather a ziplock bag, a flat head screwdriver, and a Philips head screwdriver. * Curse the manufacturer for making such a stupid design. Go ahead, you will feel better. * Flip seat over so that you're looking at the underneath & back sides. * Unhook all the elastic straps. * Loosen the shoulder straps and locate the metal clip they are hooked on. Unhook them. * Locate the plastic clips that secure the cover at each potential strap location. Use flat head screwdriver to wedge one side of the clip inward. At the same time pop the plastic clip downward with either your finger or a twist of the screwdriver. Repeat until all clips are removed (a total of 8). * Immediately place these clips in the ziplock bag. * Use Philips head screwdriver to unscrew the two screws with washers that hold the headrest on and remove the headrest. Trust me, it's just easier this way. Immediately place those screws/washers in the ziplock bag. You can choose to remove the fabric from the headrest also, but I didn't bother to since there wasn't any ick on that in my case. * Return carseat to upright position. Pull shoulder straps out from the backrest. Slide the armrest covers off. Begin from the seat bottom and peel fabric cover up. Thread the harness pieces through the lap level holes. I manhandled the **** buckle through with a bit of force because I didn't want to unscrew it. I pretended it was the person who designed this seat cover and found it quite easy to be forceful. * Now the backrest should slide off easily with all plastic clips and the headrest removed. *Congratulations, you have successfully removed the cover! Now place your screwdrivers in the ziplock back and close it. Keep the bag with the car seat until it is time for reassembly. You're on your own with that. Good luck!

Do NOT unscrew the buckle. You don't need to. If you remove the base from the seat you will be able to access a medal clip that holds the buck in place. Once you find that you can just twist it and slide it up through the hole.
