Discharged Chp. 7 & Removal/Change to CR

This is my first post and seeking solid info on how to move forward...


I am 17 months post discharge and have gone from 550 to 676 rating, seeking to replace an 11 y/o car, and trying to get as much of my CR cleaned as possible.  Is it possible to have accounts adjusted to reflect changes to the "Condition" and/or "Pay Status".  In other words, is it true that all lines within my CR should show 

"Discharged in Bankruptcy" or "Included in Bankruptcy" and show a zero balance?  Thank you in advance for your assistance...!

Re: Discharged Chp. 7 & Removal/Change to CR

if this CC was iib then it should not show past due 120 days. just that is was iib. i would first dispute that this account is not late 120 days and maybe you get lucky and its gets removed. at worst case it will get updated to show iib.
