Bugaboo Hand Brake Mechanism

Hi,
We have just puchased a second hand Bugaboo Chameleon and the hand braje won't lock.

I have removed the mechanism and the inner plastic ratchet is broken, any ideas about where I can get a new one?

thanks

    Mine is brand new and the brake seems to be highly sensitive when locked. If I put any pressure on the handle, it unlocks itself - which is not a safe feeling!

    My cameleon brake is auto-unlocking also... My baby has not yet been delivered, so I had not tested with a baby on it....

    Our brake got broken on one side whilst in the hold on a plane. It's over 2 years old now.. Not sure what to do. The brake holds on the flat but on a slope it rolls round...

I have easily solved this problem here in Brazil, where there are no Bugaboo retailers or assistance. I just opened the brake lever case by unscrewing it and fixed the white piece in its correct position. It's very easy to figure it out.
The only special care you have to take is not to lose the spring that is inside it.
I've read the solution here in this site wherelse.

The right thing to do is to contact bugaboo they should solve this problem by sending you a new chasis if it is under 2 years old if not you can purchase a new chasis at a near by retailer they can order one for you here is bugaboo's number 1-800-460-2922

The brake button on my bugaboo chameleon is jammed and won't release therefore the brake won't work , what an i do


Hi,

Your best bet is to contact www.bugaboo.com for a brake assembly replacement. If the break is permanently in the 'on' position, then gently push it forward (as if to put in on) whilst pushing the white release button, this should release the mechanism. If this is still within it's warranty, see your retailer for help.,

I hope this helps.

Hi,

Based on what you have described, it sounds like the silver domed cover (where the handle meets the bottom of the chassis) may be damaged, this may mean a new chassis is required.
I would suggest that you contact your retailer for repair advice (if this is still within the warranty period) or contact Bugaboo directly on the website link below:

www.bugaboo.com

Please note that you will need to have your chassis serial number to hand.

I hope this helps.

Bugaboo Hand Brake


the only way is to call directly to bugaboo because these are inner problems that have to be fixed (if it can) if the stroller is more then 2 years old you might have to go to your nearst retailer and order a new chasis for i it (there around 100.00 to 200 dollars. if you need the exact amount let me now and I can get it for you tomorrow the number for bugaboo is 1-800-460-2922 good luck

Main Chassis bar won't lock on one side


We had a similar problem, the right-hand hinge of the frame would not lock and the button was permanently down. What had happened was the handle extension switch housing had come unscrewed and slipped up the frame, causing a small spring to fall out. The lock switches each have a spring which pushes down on a rod inside the frame to lock the hinge. To access the spring, unscrew the handle extension housing and slide it up the aluminum frame. I replaced the missing spring and the frame works perfectly. If the problem is with the spring, this should work. Alternatively the problem may lie inside the lock switch housing, which contains a very simple mechanism which slides the lock rod up and down. This can be unscrewed as well. As far as I can tell, the actual hinge assembly itself is a sealed unit and can't be opened, but hopefully, you won't have to.
Good luck,
Ben

Brake does not engage


the brake disengages using the button. if it is forced the mechanism slips. its fairly straightforward to take it apart with a screwdriver. clean the plastic parts, put it back together right and screw it back on. then all you need to do is show granny how to work it (again) to prevent it happening again.
