Removing a CoPilot Limo bike seat

I can't believe I am having trouble figuring this out, but can anyone explain how the quick release works on a CoPilot Limo? Between our two kids, we've had it mounted on my wife's hybrid forever and I honestly can't remember where the quick release mechanism is to remove it.

We don't use the seat anymore, although we just stopped a few months ago and haven't gotten around to removing it. However, we'll be transporting the bike next week on our rack, so removing it would be ideal.

Thanks in advance!

@cafzali I'm sorry I only just saw this. I hope you figured it out. You first need to yank out the rubber noodle that latches the back and undo the safety lanyard around the seat post. Then lift the flap of plastic that latches under the back of the kid seat, at the same time as you press down on the bit molded into the front that latches under the front lip of the rack, and slide the whole thing aft and off.

It takes less time than it did to read this sentence.

Thanks! I actually decided to just take the whole seat off by removing the rack and seat all at once. I did move the noodle, but for some reason could never figure out the other part correctly. The main thing I wanted to do was remove it and preserve everything in the event someone else could use it now that the last of our 2 is done with it.

Thanks for that on behalf of Craigslist shoppers. When I bought mine maybe 2/3 of the ones for sale were lacking the rack
