Britax Advocate 70 CS – Yes, the side impact cushions are removable

I searched all around to try to find out if the side impact cushions on the Britax Advocate 70 CS child car seat are removable. I couldn’t find anything, so I went ahead and looked. It turns out that each cushion is held on with 3 Torx screws that are located on the inside of the seat underneath the cover and foam.

I guess this is not widely touted, because people buy this car seat specifically for those cushions and probably don’t typically want to remove them. For us, we wanted to remove them, because we’re going on a plane tomorrow and we don’t want those side cushions taking up extra space. Fortunately, they’re easy to remove.

  1. Thank you for this! I need to remove the cushion on one side to make room for the middle car seat for my soon to be born baby.

  2. Yes, another “thank you” for revealing this info. We have twins and pending air travel. I had called Britax and all they had to say was one report that the CS 70 did not fit but didn’t know which airline or plane model. And they didn’t mention this fairly easy and temporary modification. A big thank you Marc!

  3. I know this is old news for this stream but…did anyone try to put the side impact cushions back onto the Britax Advocate?
