Question about Cosco Sceneras...

Does anyone else have trouble turning them between FF and RF? I have one I use for my cousins, 14 months RF and 3 years FF, and it is a pain to fold in the adjuster on the bottom of the seat. I have to have a screwdriver and another person's help to get the seat into RF mode. Are they all like this or is there something wrong with my seat? It's a 2009 seat if that matters.

No, ours isn't hard at all - you pull it down (straight down from the back of the seat) and then it folds under (for RF) easily. Then to FF, you just flip it straight down and push it up, clicks into place.

There's definetly something wrong with ours then because it won't do that. It takes a lot of effort to get the plastic gears to move.

Try one out at the store next time you go. I don't think that's normal tho.

I would say something is wrong, I've never had any difficulty with any Scenera I've installed, its always been pretty easy to adjust that thingy...gotta love my technical jargon lol

There is a "trick" to it IME but nothing that requires force of any kind.

It sounds to me like either there's something wrong with that seat, or you're not getting it pulled out/pushed into the "lock spot" for FF positioning.

I can change it from RF to FF very easily, but getting it back RF is the problem.

Fwiw I have a really hard time getting that thing to move as well. I just keep trying to pull it down and eventually it will go. Annoying though!
