Help! My umbrella stroller travel system wont fold down properly

I really need to start folding my pushchair because of where i store it, as now the neighbour needs to store her pushchair in the same place, which is in the space underneath the stairwell in the block of flats we live in. But my pushchair will not fold down enough to engage the locking clip, the only time i could fold it down was when i took all the covers off to wash them, then it folded easily and really well and locked shut. Does this mean it has a design flaw and that the seat liner is too bulky and padded to fold it properly, would this be reason enough to get a refund/exchange? I have now seen another pushchair i would like to buy which is the chicco nunu which looks like it folds really easily and seems to fold down really small. unlike the pushchair i have at the moment. What should i do?

Take the seat liner out? hmm

To be honest a lot of umbrella fold buggies don't fold that well with a liner/footmuff on.

I doubt you're going to get your money back to buy a new one though.

It wont even fold when i take the liner/footmuff off, the actual seat part is really padded and seems to stop the back part of the seat folding up as it should.
