Hi, we recently removed our child's car seat to clean it (she had spilt milk all over it). Anyway, we washed it all out and tried to put it back together again but we can't. The straps that are supposed to go over her torso are too short and we don't know how to extend them. We have tried everything and had a few people take a look at it to no avail - please help.

*To convert the car seat into a booster seat, turn the car seat over and remove the pin that holds the base in place. tHEN REMOVE THE BELTS AND THE BUCKLE.
*To remove you need to bend/twist the keeper until you can push it UP through the seat and remove the belt/strap. It is now a booster seat for use with a lap/shoulder belt in the car. Store all the parts you removed in a ziploc bag for when your child outgrows it so it can be reused
move front seats forward.grasp seat cushion under front[where your heels would be if seated] and lift to release seat from 'clips' underneath.pull seat towards you to remove.push it back in firmly before pushing down to 're-clip'.
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!
