Rear axle and wheels

I removed the rear wheels as per the instructions in the manual by pressing the small grey release button. Now when I go to put them back on they do not snap/lock into place and as a result can come/fall off easily. Please help, thank you.

Re: Rear axle and wheels

You might also want to lubricate the parts with Silicone spray too, otherwise this will be a recurring problem

Re: Rear axle and wheels

You have to push the small grey release button up again while the wheel is in. now the only way to do that is to push it from the other side. remove the the cover on the opposite side by removing the phillips screw on the inner of the wheel housing . the cover will pop off as there is a spring underneath it, you will see the grey plastic below. slide in the wheel, push the grey plastic up with a screw driver, make sure the wheel is firmly in place, replace the cap and screw it back in place tight.

I can't change the seat position so how is this done?

Hi Clare

The Buzz seat unit position is adjusted by pressing down the grey buttons on either side of the seat unit (the same ones you use to remove the seat unit from the chassis) and tilting the seat to the desired angle. Once the grey buttons are released the seat will lock in desired recline position.

Can't fold phil and teds dash,

I successfully fixed this issue today on a 2008 dash stroller. first remove the handle, you will need to drill out the two rivets with a 1/4" drill bit, but don't go too far, don't drill out the plastic on the handle piece. unscrew the four brake cable clips. unscrew the two screws securing the grey release clips. Prop stroller on the handle bar side (put padding underneath so you don't mess up your work surface) and the rear wheels. now get two small bladed screw drivers, you can gradually pry down the internal plastic locking wedge on either side till it releases the front wheel section which folds down. (on the left side which is likely functioning, you can just pull the plastic circular piece down with your fingers, as the internal wire is still connected)
Now grab some vise grips, lock onto the locking wedge and remove the whole mechanism, also remove the foam inside with a screw driver (this likely is what was supposed to keep the tension wire in place). Take the locking wedge mechanism apart. ( you will need to push the steel pin out with a small screw, it does not take a lot of force) Get a small nylon zip tie and secure it around the shaft on the tension wire connecting end of the locking wedge. (this will keep it from ever falling out(pulling through) again. This part (the locking wedges) should have been made out of aluminum or stainless steel and the issue would never occur. You will need to trim the catch end of the zip tie and make sure that it can slide freely inside of the plastic sleeve. now slide off the nylon zip tie and set it aside along with the spring.
Take the circular plastic piece (the 4" part inside that is near the handle piece with slots in it) slide in the tension cable. Slide the other end of the tension cable into the frame from the handle bar side till you can reach the end from the front wheel side. Now slide on the tubular plastic wedge housing and lock it in place to the frame (the detente underneath the frame lines up with the bump on the tubular sleeve), then the spring, then the small nylon zip tie, then the release wedge. Secure the zip tie onto the release wedge shaft and aim the head of the zip tie down so it can slide freely. Put some Vaseline or white lithium grease on the release wedge so it slides well. If the release wedge binds up you will need trim the zip tie head a bit more so it fits.
Next take the removed riveted posts and drill them out with a sharp 1/8" drill bit about 3/8" deep. (Use vise grips to hold onto these guys, as they will get hot, and make sure to use some oil while you drill to keep things cooler. Slide down the plastic circularly plastic pieces (you may need small screw driver to manipulate them down) so you can re-attach the two grey release mechanism brackets.
Re-insert the two formerly riveted brackets through the frame which will locate the handlebar properly. Get two small 1/4" sheet metal screws. Put the black washer back on, apply firm pressure and screw in the 1/4" sheet metal screws into the drilled out posts with a drill.
Re-attach the seat and you are good as new.
Note: The instructions may seem a little tricky, but you can do it.

How do you change the handle direction, we have the small wheels at the rear and would like them to be at the front

Just use the handle release buttons to un-lock the handle and swing it over to the other side than release the seat by pressing the two square buttons and turn it around so baby still faces you.

Removing rear whells from Phil andTeds Classic pram

Press the button and pull the axle out as far as it will go. At the button end is a metal collar - hold this firmly and push the button, without pushing the axle back in. This will loosen the 2 ball bearings at the other end of the axle and you can pull it out. It is a bit fiddly but i just managed it after the same problem.

Remove Rear Wheel on Phil and Teds Stroller (Dash)

There is a little push button on the metal bar that runs the length of the stroller.  good luck, my bearings have gone bad on my phil and teds and they told me that I had to replace the entire wheel at 40 dollars a pop.

We folded down our phil & teds pushchair so it locks into pplace, with the front wheel turned. but now we can't unlock it back to put it back up again. we have tried clicking in the grey plastic bits at...

I presume you have this sorted this by now! but for anyone else reading this.

When it is down push down on the handle then press the grey button. It should open.
