Is there a DIY for removing the rear seat pad for a booster seat? Thanks! Many would be able to jump in there and do it, but I am more lucky to tear something up.

Isn't the rear seat pad just velcro?

LOL! I don't know! I'm afraid to pull on it! Would that be in my manual? If it is, I am pretty embarassed!

Not in the manual. There is circular mumbo on tether, but nothing about removing the seat cushion. I'm going to go give it a pull in the morning.

The bottom is Velcro give 'er a good tug. I removed that and the back pad/shelf for my boys. Those alone were like 40lbs in weight savings

It did pull out real easy! Thank you! I learned a couple things:

1) The Recaro Vivo car seat only fits with the head rest in the lowest position. For taller kids it will not work because the head rest pushes down on the shoulders.

2) Anyone putting in a car seat should definitely remove the seat pads to preserve them from damage.

3) The prior owner must of had kids, because it was cookie crumb city when I pulled the pad out!

Thanks!!

Don
