Question about Bugaboo Cameleon Jogger

1 Answer

White discs will not click to secure seating position

We are unable to secure the seat in a fixed position because the white discs will not click in and out as they used to. I have diss-assembled the mechanism and it looked OK but upon re-assembling it there was no change.
Really frustrating given this is an expensive pram and only 18 months old.

    Hi. We have the same problem. We've had one side stuck in for about the last 6 months. It occasionally pops back out if you go down a kurb or something but gets stuck back in as soon as you push it. Now the other side is doing it too which means we cant get the seat to fix in position. I had a look thinking there might be someway of getting lubricant into the part to loosen it up but it is completely sealed.

    Any answers and solutions gratefully received as currently it's unusable

    IF you bought it at Babies galore and still have the receipt, they replace the entire frame under warranty if the pram is under 2 yrs old.  I had the exact problem and they replaced it.

    I have the same issue. The bugaboo is 3 1/2 years old and now the disks wont pop out at all. I would really like to get it fixed as I only need the stroller for another few months and I don't want to buy a new one!!!!!

Is the seat fitting securely on the chassis? The white discs sound like a symptom of a problem with the seat clipping onto the base.

To fix it yourself, you need to disassemble the buttons, which can be done with two screwdrivers one a thin slot type the other a Phillips. Here is the process: 1. On the other side of the white button unit is a screw. Remove it using a Phillips screwdriver.
2. You'll now have a black housing with a white button held in by three white tabs. 3. Free the white button from the housing by pressing inwards on each of the three tabs with the slot type screwdriver.
4. You'll now have a black base, a spring and a white button. Pay attention to how the two black parts align to each other so you re-assemble it correctly.
5. Pop the white button out of the upper black surround. Sand the circumference of the white button evenly until it slips easily in and out of the black surround. A little silicon spray is a good idea.macnutz_27.jpg
6. Reassemble unit and check it has full movement (see photo below). macnutz_30.jpg
On the underside of the button unit a ramp shape should lineup with an opening in the bottom edge.macnutz_33.jpg
8. Fit button unit back into upper seat leg, Fit lower seat leg aligning it to the back of the button unit so the push rod in the lower seat leg pushes on to the ramp on the button unit. Note the seat button will not come out and lock until the seat is fitted back on to the chassis pushing the rod up to push the button out to the lock position. Once you have fitted the back screw in you can use a large screw driver to push down the inside of the lower leg to check the white button pops out and locks. If you have any resistance dismantle again to check alignment and the condition of the interlocking teeth of the button and the outer rings. Sand of any burrs and use a little silicon grease. Reassemble and test again.
Repeat operation to the other side if necessary. Buttons are not interchangeable so doing one side at a time avoids mixing them up.
If the tabs on the white button are broken you can buy a new button unit as a part

The two white discs on the side of stroller are stuck in. When the seat is fixed into position they should snap out to lock the seat into position. Please help !!

we sent an email to bugaboo via their website and they posted us replacement buttons for ours and we were out of warranty. Not bad!

Did you make sure the seat is locked onto the chassis? If it is, then it sounds like you have a malfunctioning seat frame. If your bugaboo is still under warranty, contact Bugaboo and they will replace it for you. Your local retailer can get you the phone number or you can get it from their website:
