Need to reattch te base
OK, I found my manual and have successfully removed the base, shield and harness...oh rah! Here's what the manual says, word for word for REINSTALL: IF YOU DO NOT REATTACH THE SHIELD AND HARNESS CORRECTLY, YOUR CHILD MAY COME OUT OF THE RESTRAINT IN A CRASH, RESULTING IN SERIOUS INJURY OR DEATH. NOTE: It is easier to complete all the following steps if the headrest is in the lowest position. TO REPLACE BASE: Remove bar from base and place shell onto base so it lines up securely. Starting with the rounded end, push bar compeltely through slot until it locks in place. TO REPLACE SHIELD: Lay shield upside down with the shield closest to you. Position arms over holes, align notch over keyhole, and push arms in; rotate shield over to the front of the seat. From inside shell, put locks onto ends of both arms and rotate locks clockwise to secure in place. To replace the pad, see page 15. Thread the harness ends through the slots. The harness MUST go over the metal bar in back. Reattach ends of harness to harness bracket. There were pictures but I'm a lousy artist but you should be able to get the gist of it. The locks are the little round white plastic parts with tabs sticking out to be used to twist them into place. REMOVAL OF SHIELD: TO REMOVE SHIELD: Unlock buckle. Unfasten ends of harness from harness bracket in back of seat. (Harness bracket can be looped over brace on back of car seat for storage). Adjust headrest all the way down. Rotate shield up and over back of car seat. Undo 4 fabric clips, work cover over sholder belt guides and pull cover away from side of shell so you can reach te lock. Push in on white lock, turn counterclockwise and remove. Repeat for other side. Pull arms out of holes and remove shield, pulling harness straps out othrough front of seat. You must save the shield and locks in order to use the shield with the seat in the future. The locks can be saved in the storage compartment in the base. TO REMOVE BASE: Move seat to fully reclined posiion. Push down on tab on right side of base. From the other side, start pushing on bar and pull the bar copletely out. Lift shell off base. You must save the bar in order to use the seat with the base in the future; the easiest way to do so is to replace the bar. Push the rounded end over the tab all the way across the base until it shaps in place. Hope this helps!
Well, I don't have a solution to getting it back on, but if you could tell me how to get the stupid thing off, I could maybe figure out how to get it back on for you. :) I can't find anything about it via Cosco either. grrrrr!
