Seat stuck on base

My infant car seat is stuck on the base. When I lift the lever that is supposed to release the car seat it doesn't come off. Any idea how to fix this? I have other Peg Perego seats and have never come across this. Thanks!

    Hi there, I have the same problem as the other person did with not being able to get the car seat off the base. (I have a Graco Snugride Milan). The car seat seems to be stuck on the base. When I lift the red lever, it will lift on that side but it appears to be stuck in the front I believe....any suggestions?

Some do, some don't.

From Graco's web site:

What base will work with my car seat?

We have designed many of our car seats to work with more than one base, for your convenience. Please see the chart here for Classic Connect models.
The SnugRide Click Connect 30, 35, 35LX and 40 infant car seat carriers are compatible with any SnugRide Click Connect infant car seat base. Consumers should adhere to the height and weight requirements for the SnugRide Click Connect infant car seat carriers as stated in their owner's manual; however, the SnugRide Click Connect 40 infant car seat carrier is restricted to a height limit of 32 inches when used with a SnugRide Click Connect 30, 35 or 35LX base.

Carseat jammed to easy base 2

Try pressing down very hard on the seat while trying the release. If that does not work, call the manufacturer.
Note: if this does release, check the seat belt for damage before using again. Also check that the belt path used to install the base is/was correct.

Handle is stuck in the carry position--Can it be fixed?

These car seats seem to have a problem in the release mechanism that
lets the handle move. We have found that lifting the handle a bit as you press
the releases can help. Try pulling toward the front of the car seat, then pressing
the release buttons. If all else fails, call Baby Trend and complain. It just might
get you a replacement if you can prove it is a danger to the child in the seat.

We have a cabriofix car seat on a family fix base (purchased new in Dec 2010). The car seat is stuck on the base. One of the clips will not release when the grey handle is pulled. Any ideas why?

Get back to where you bought it for a replacement - these things HAVE to work perfectly to keep your child safe - don't try to "fix" it you could live to regret it.

How do u release seat from base

Good Evening

At the front of the base unit (nearest to the edge of the vehicle seat) there is a large grey release clip. Pull this clip forward (toward the front of the vehicle) and lift the carseat away from the base. Ensure that you lift the carseat completely away before letting go of the release clip as otherwise it may not release fully and the carseat will still be partly attached.
