    This sounds alot like the problem we have - are your back wheels splaying out aswell? I will be watching this with interest to hear your replies.

    a little yes. problem solves slightly if you lift pushchair when pushing, suppose it takes the weight off, but not ideal when you have 2 kids and shopping!

Rear driver wheel has light reubbing noise when car in motion goes away when brakes are engaged. Is this brakes or barrings problem? Cost of repair?

hi this sounds like your brake pads have worn, or the brake shoes as well, if you have drum brakes on the back it will be shoes, if disk brakes will be pads+shoes (inside the disk) if it was the wheel bearing you would hear a loud humming noise not rubbing noise, is it a metallic rubbing noise or a rubber squeaking rubbing noise? just check condition of tyre on back if it is the squeaking rubber noise cost will depend on where you take it and if you do it yourself, possibly $40 to $50 at a garage/auto shop or possibly $20 to $30 if you do it yourself, this just depends ...hope this helps

I have a jane powertwin pro and the rear bar that hangs above the clogs for the rear brake constantly rubs on the cogs making a grinding noise with or without kids in it. Please help


This sounds like either your brake bar is loose or has been bent out of shape. Look at the silver metal pins that click into the black cogs (on the inside of the back wheels), if these are not horizontal, then your brake bar has probably suffered some stress, causing the bar to bend and the pins to touch the cogs.
If the metal pins are totally horizontal, then your brake bar is just probably loose and needs removing and re-rivetting on tighter.

Either way, I would suggest that you contact (if in the UK) this link:

who will be able to assist with the repair. You can also take this back to the retailer and arrange a repair through them.

I hope this helps.

Jane powertwin splayed back wheels-rear brake plastic bracket


This sounds like some kind of excessive weight on the handle bar or a buggy board has been used, either that or too much pressure has been applied to the break bar. On the break bar, this should have a natural curve to it, if this looks wonky, then this is probably the reason. If this is the case, then the bar will have to be drilled off, straightened and re-rivetted back on.
I would suggest that you contact either your retailer for repairs advice, or www.johnstonprams, please note that this does sound like you will have to pay for it to be repaired.

I hope this helps.

I have the older style Jane Powertin with the spoke wheels. The brake bar is hitting off the plastic ring on the inner side of the wheel (that the brake bar fits into when the brake is on)  so when I...


This sounds like the brake bar (at some point) has had a little too much pressure applied to it. The brake bar itself has a natural curve and when too much pressure is applied, the curve becomes distorted, therefore making the silver metal pins sit at an odd angle (instead of being horizontal) this in-turn makes the pins contact the cogs on the inside of the back wheels, hence the clicking noise.
The remedy for this is get the brake bar drilled out (is attached via rivets, so this is the only way) then the bar can be straightened and re-rivetted on. The best option to get advice on this is to contact or for repair agents.

I hope this helps.

Yep sounds about normal. Quiet is fine when it gets loud or pronounced then you may have dragging issues. But it sounds like your O.K.,,,

jack up the rear wheel and spin the rear wheel to find out what the rub is. look to see if there is any rubbing marks on or in the fender well.( do not have on the emergency brake) Also if the noise could be metalic then it could be the brake drum rubbing on the backing plate.
