Question about Maxi-Cosi CabrioFix (Black Reflection) Infant Car Seat

2 Answers

I have the isofix easy fix base. It will not come out of the car. We press in button in and pull and it does not move at all. It's almost like the locking mechanism has jammed. Any suggestions?

Good Afternoon

On either side of the EasyFix base you will see a small square opening with the yellow IsoFix point showing through it. Take a flat head screwdriver and slide into this hole facing toward the front of the car and gently push the screwdriver handle so it ends up facing the rear of the car - this should unlock the IsoFix mechanism. You'll need to do it on both sides if both sides are stuck.

If this doesn't work, or once you have done this, take the base back to your retailer with your proof of purchase if it is under 2 years old and they will be able to assist.

Do you have a photo of this opening as we have the same problem but can't see the area you are suggesting.

Thanks in advance.

How do I remove the Bambino Elite Isofix car seat from my car?

I had exactly this problem! First I could not find my user manual, but luckily Bambino provides it online. Then you discover that removing the seat is not covered in the manual... (Bambino, take note!)

I eventually figured it out (the items in bold are mentioned in the manual):
- Remove the top tether (the strap that goes over the top of the seatback and clips in behind the seat).
- Rotate the adjuster buttons (2 knobs, one on each side of the car seat near the bottom) anti-clockwise so that the ISOFIX anchors can extend. The seat will now be loose but still clipped in.
- Pull both release buttons (small sliding catches on the ISOFIX anchors, close to the red+green indicator) towards the front of the seat so that the ISOFIX indicators turn red. The seat should now be free!

Hi Melanie

To override release the carseat from the base, use a pair of long nosed pliers to reach the wires that are inside the base. They can be accessed underneath the grey button on the base. Pull the wires toward you and the carseat can be lifted from the base.

This is an issue with the base, not the carseat, so the base needs to be sent in for inspection and repair required. Please contact the customer care team for further assistance. 87985515-e848-4733-8df0-f4baae5e6226.jpg

Chicco isofix problem with remove from car

Hi Tanja,

If the seat is installed tightly, try pressing down on the seat as you push the red release button. Hold the button as you pull the Isofix attachment away from the lower bar.

Does maxi cosi cabriofix easy base require anything to be removed from it before fixing it? we cant find where the button is that fixes it to the seat

Hi

Can you clarify - what button are you looking for?

The EasyFix base is fitted into the vehicle using the IsoFix points OR the 3 point seabelt. (Never both) The carseat then clicks onto the base and the metal rods on the underside of the CabrioFix carseat are grabbed by clamps on the base.

Hi, I would like to ask a few questions: 1. Does the Maxi Cosi Cabrio car seat fits only to the isofix base, or can it be installed to the mico base as well ? If it does, the only difference is that the...

Good Morning

The Maxi Cosi CabrioFix can be fitted without any base, using the 3 point seatbelt: With the EasyFix base, using IsoFix points or 3 point seatbelt: With the EasyBase and EasyBase 2 using the 3 point seatbelt. It cannot be used with the Mico carseat base as they are not designed to be used together. The Mico is available in US and does not meet UK standards: Likewise the CabrioFix does not meet US standards so they should never be used together.

If you don't know how to fit the carseat into your vehicle using the 3 point seatbelt please check your user manual, or download a replacement copy at www.maxi-cosi.com before use go to an authorised retailer to check it is correctly installed as this will affect the performance of the carseat.

How do you remove the isofix base from the car seat?

Every ISOFIX base has a button which you can press and release the base from the car seat.

The Maxi Cosi CabrioFix can be fitted using the EasyFix base (IsoFix or seatbelt fitted) the EasyBase and EasyBase 2 (fitted with seatbelt only) or the FamilyFix base (IsoFix only). If you do not have IsoFix points you need either an EasyBase or EasyBase 2 to be fitted with seatbelt.

What's the difference between Easybase (non isofix) and Easyfix base (isofix)? can I use the second one for both maxi cosi cabriofix and car seat up to 3.5 year?

Hi,

The Easy Fix Base is used for cars which have isofix points in their car. The Easy Base fits into your car using the seatbelt.
Both of these bases can be used ONLY for the CabrioFix Carseat and cannot be used for the next stage seat (Group 1).

I hope this helps.
