HOW TO FIX BUGABOO CAMELEON CANOPY

The Bugaboo canopy uses a clever two stage hub. A spring keeps the sections together in a twin set of wavy indents. As you pull the canopy out the first arch moves to the next indentation (60 degrees) than the second arch moves it's next indentation (90 degrees). If you have the fabric set to far back over the back of the frame and a arch can't reach it's next indentation it will jump back to it's first position. Check the arches can reach the indentations. If a spring breaks inside a hub it is not repairable but is available as a part for around 25 Euro for a pair.www.babycare.nl/bugaboo-canopy-clamp-cameleon-2pc-p-2467.html Ships Worldwide or Check out www.bugaboo.com

I have a bugaboo cameleon and try as I might, I can't get the hood canopy to stay taught at the back, it's loose / baggy. I've tried different hood fabrics as well as reversing the clamps but nothing works. I have also tried two different sets of hood clamps but get exactly the same issue. What am i doing wrong?? I am a perfectionist and this is driving me nuts.

Our Bugaboo Cameleon's canopy hood won't extend so thtat it is closed per the design of the pram. To better explain, the design of the pram is that when the hood is lifted upwards, it is lifted to 90 degrees, but ours falls back to approx 60 degrees backwards. We have tried dismantling, and still no result as expected. Please can you offer advice on how to fix?

When I open the frame of the bugaboo, I push the knobs towards me and I successfully lift the handlebar up. When I try and lift the handlebar up to kick the wheels out, I can sometimes do it but at other times it seems to lock (entirely). It is not that it is stiffer or anything. I feel as if I am doing something wrong. Any suggestions? Thanks,


There a three parts / assemblies to a Bugaboo Chassis that all pivot around the central hub (the thing with the large chrome domes). The white release buttons only control the handle locks in the outer set of hubs. The two wheel assembles are locked by the seat / bassinet clipping on to the frame and locking the inner hub. This hub is the heart of your Bugaboo and there is a reason Bugaboo put a can of silicon spray in the maintenance kit. Keep those hubs and the brake lever well lubricated and you'll get good service from your Bugaboo. Check out my Tips section for more info.

Frog canopy removal


Pull gently on the plastic arches that support the canopy (on either sides - where they connect to the stroller) and slide the canopy off.
