    I think the base you have is very much the same as this.

    The leg marked yellow sits in the foot well. It adjust so the base sits flat onto the car seat.
    The bit's marked red are for the belt to clip into to hold the base.
    The belt in green passes through the hole's and clips around both bit's marked yellow.
    Just make sure the belt is pulled nice and tight to force the base right into the seat.
    Safety First for kid's.
    I hope this helps you out.
    If your still having trouble go to mothercare and say you bought it at another branch and they showed the other half and she's forgot, and they will fit it for you.

    Pass both parts of the belt through i.e. the diagonal part & the lap part of the belt. After clipping the belt into place, pull the diagonal strap tight before holding it in place with the part marked in red in the pic Shan has put up.

    After that (if you don't get any joy) as Shan said go to Mothercare and get them to show you. You need to be 100% sure with something like this.

    graco do have online manuals but not sure if you already have one and can't make head nor tail of it.

    It's not stored in the seat itself is it? Graco do show a storage pocket at least in the modern ones.

    In fact this looks like the base?

    Also mate get yourself a Rubber Seat protector. It will help stick the base in place.
