Does Maxi cosi pebble car seat cover fit to maxi cosi mico car seat?

We wouldn't advise a Pebble fabric on a Mico as the models are a different design so the Pebble fabric wouldn't be an optimum fit on the Mico model.

I need to clean fabric does it come away from seat

Good Evening

The fabric on all Maxi Cosi carseats can be removed for cleaning purposes.

Instructions for removing the fabric can be found in your user manual. If you no longer have your user manual you can download another copy at Select the CabrioFix carseat as your model and you will see a tab over the image to download a copy of the manual it has a step by step guide in here for how to remove the fabrics to clean them.

It is recommended that fabrics are sponge washed by hand and dried naturally. Use a mild detergent suitable for hand washing and ensure it is thoroughly rinsed. To prevent discolouration of the fabric do not leave it to dry in direct sunlight. The fabric should not be tumble dried as this may cause unsightly bobbling.

Maxi Cosi fabrics only have the Side Protection System tag if the seat they are designed to fit has the SPS technology (not all seats do). Make sure you have the correct fabric for your carseat.

How do u take off the cover for the seat?

With a small amount of force those little seat belt clips will just pop in and out. I sometimes use a butter knife to pop them out. It is always quite stiff the first time.good luck p.s you made perfect sense.

Removing seat cover

Dorel Juvenile Group manufactures these car seats for under the Cosco brand. You should check out their web site.
  • Check out the recall notices and make sure your seat is not listed.
  • Register your car seat so that you are informed of any future recalls.
There does not seem to be any Manuals on their website, but they do list a phone number. 1-800-544-1108

When I took mine apart I did the following.
  • Take many pictures of it first so you can see how it goes back together.
  • Put all of the parts in a container so you don't lose any.
  • Start by removing the screws on the headrests. There are four of them.
  • Using a flat screwdriver on the left side and a pair of pliers on the right (as you are facing it) pull the metal rod from the hinge to the right. Make sure you don't damage the springs.
  • The screwdriver can be used to gently pry the square metal strap anchor from the plastic holder. It is tight!
  • Then fish the anchor through the seat and fabric.
  • The shoulder straps have to go from the front through the fabric.
  • There is a front clip that is located between the child's legs. I had to finesse the fabric cover around this.
I think that is all I did. We washed the cover in COLD water on delicate and soaked it overnight to get it clean. Hang dry!
