Who can offer help with a Britax question?

Can the Britax Diplomate's cover be removed for washing? I can't figure it out and I don't have access to the manual right now. Can you help me please?

  • From the manual:

    WArning: DO NOT take apart the buckle tongues on the harness.

    1 Remove the infant body pillow.
    2 Loosen the harness by lifting the harness adjuster
    lever while pulling both shoulder straps forward
    as far as possible.
    3 Unhook the shoulder straps from the harness
    yoke on the rear of the child seat (Fig. E).
    4 Pull the upper harness straps through the head
    restraint and cover to the front of the child seat.
    5 Remove the buckle and belly pad. See page 35.
    6 Remove the head restraint portion of the cover. Be careful not to
    damage the energy-absorbing foam.
    7 Remove the energy-absorbing foam from the head restraint and set
    8 Gently remove the upper portion of the cover by pulling it around the
    head restraint to the front.
    9 Pull the lower harness straps, buckle tongues, HUGSâ„¢ chest pads, and
    chest clip through the lower slots in cove

  • To my knowledge Britax prides themselves on the fact that all of their carseats have interchangable and washable covers. Olivia has the Marathon in pink with flowers and if this next kid is a boy I'm sooo buying the cow or denim cover. So from as far as I know all Britax carseat covers are washable. I have washed Olivia's soooo many times.
