Borrowed DS1's old triumph back from PIL to take DS2 on the train.
It has been kept in their shed I think and it is filthy and musty, I have washed the seat but can't get the hood off.
Can anybody help please?

I don't think you can take the covers off the hood. If it's just removing the hood from the pushchair you're having problems with, where the hood rods meet the pushchair, the plastic clip around the pushchair can be pressed so that the clip is released. Sorry if you've already done that and this doesn't help!

Thanks aswellasyou, I still can't get it off the frame, do you press the clip up or down? Mine doesn't seem to budge.

At the side of the plastic attachment, can you see a little slot with a bit of plastic sticking through it? If I remember correctly, you have to press it to release the 'lip' so that the sticky outy bit can pass through the slot. Then when the clip has been opened you can just pull the whole hood off.
