This is about all I could find for you. Hope it helps.
Had one - its a huge pain in the **** and I always busted my fingernails doing it. The metal clips have to slide over the bumps to get them out. I hated that thing. May I make a suggestion? Return it. lol . I'm figuring you got a combo seat - Evenflo Generations, Bolero, Chase, that is a forward facing only seat to 40lbs, or a convertible seat like Evenflo Tribute that is forward facing to 40lbs. Since I don't know her age its hard to make a suggestion, but for just a little more money (we paid $79 for our Chase) you could get a much better seat. If she needs a convertible that will rear face, get the Evenflo Triumph for $150 or less, The Evenflo Triumph Advance (not the original Triumph, make sure it says Advance) is a great seat. $150 version at Babies R Us has padding similar to Britax seats, top slots of 17", harnesses to 35lbs rear facing, and 50lbs forward facing. $120 Walmart version just has little less plush padding. Wide open belt path, easy to install, though it doesn't have built in lockoffs. The harness adjusts at the front of the car seat, you don't have to take the car seat out of the car just to raise/lower the straps. It's one of only 2 seats that does this (The Britax Boulevard is the other, I believE), and it has infinite harness adjustment so the harness always fits perfectly until its outgrown. No more tugging straps to tighten them either. You tighten and loosen the harness using knobs on the side of the seat. As a major bonus, it can be used in a recline position even in forward facing mode. Awesome for kids who still sleep in the car. I LOVE THIS SEAT! LOL My son, who is too big for every other car seat at Walmart has the same amount of room in this as the Britax Marathon.

If she is forward facing (over 30lbs and over 2years old) then a Graco Nautilus would be a lot easier to use and install, $150. Harnesses to 65lbs and then becomes a booster, will be the last seat you have to buy her. Metal reinforced.

Combo seats are usually a major waste of money, as they only harness to 40lbs, no more than most convertible car seats, so you're really not getting any more use out them then the convertible seat.

Straps too tight


Hi

To loosen the harness on the CabrioFix depress the button on the tensioner housing unit and pull both harness straps toward you together as instructed in the User Manual.

If this is not working it will need to come in for inspection and repair required. If you're in the UK and the carseat is under 24 months old please return to your retailer with proof of purchase for them to send to our engineers for inspection / repair under warranty terms and conditions. If you're in the UK and it is over 24 months old or you no longer have proof of purchase you can book in with the customer care team directly on 01284 413 141 Mon-Thur 08:30-17:30 / Fri 08:30-16:30 (Excluding Bank Holidays) Standard cost is 39.99GBP which does include courier collection and delivery. if you're not in the UK please visit www.maxi-cosi.com and select the country you're in, then choose the Contact Us tab on the right side of the screen for your enquiry to be sent through to the customer care team in your country who can assist.

Ive pushed button and straps on my maxi cosy cabrio car seat will not loosen, help??


Hi

When you press the silver / grey button at the front of the carseat you should pull both harness straps at the same time and it should loosen the harness. If this is not happening the carseat needs to be inspected. Please contact your retailer with proof of purchase if it is under 12 months old. Alternatively please let us know what country you're in and we can put you in touch with the correct customer care team to assist.

Carseats werent made for all the extra stuff we have to put on our kids. So will have to take your little one in and out of the snow siut in the car. I have an auto start button on my keys so I can warm the car before we go out there, so I can take my little one out of his warm wear in the car. Its just a headache putting them back in it once you get to your destination.
