    Me too! Exactly the same problem! Very frustrating considering this is a high end stroller (i.e. expensive!)

    same problem...call Quinny customer svc (see website) & they will send you a new wheel. i am going to try solutions suggested, though since I anticipate it will be a problem in the future!

    The front wheel gets stuck whenever it is lifted. And it cannot be blocked.

First remove the front wheel assembly from the pushchair by pressing in the two buttons on the sides and pulling it out.

Now look more closely at the assembly - on one side, just where it bends at an angle you will find a small hole, a couple of millimetres across. Take a small screwdriver or some other thin object and push it into the hole a little way, which presses a metal catch inwards, releasing the swivel assembly. While continuing to push this in pull the swivel assembly apart - grasp the wheels in one hand and the L-shaped plastic housing in the other and pull them apart.

Now clean all the surfaces with a piece of strong cloth.

When all the surfaces are very clean, take a can of TEFLON SPRAY and spray it onto all surfaces that rub against each other, before reassembling the wheel unit. Silicon grease is a cheaper alternative, but the teflon spray is supposed to be the best for lubricating all moving parts on the Buzz. Whatever you do, don't use WD40.

Hope this helps! Dan.

    Also, try furniture polish. This contains beeswax which is an excellent lubricant. works a treat! Also fantastic on squeaky door hinges!

I had the same problem today and I took the front wheel off at the black bit by pressing the buttons. If you look at where the wheel swivels there is a small hole in the plastic, twist the swivel wheel until you can see a button then use a small screw driver to press the button and the wheel should just pop off, you can then clean the place where it swivels, I also sprayed some silicon spray and it seems to twist more smoothly. It is east then to put the wheel back on just make sure the button is back lined up with its hole and slide the wheel back on.

I found that just taking it apart and lightly greasing the metal part with just normal olive oil works... for how long I'm unsure, but it's easy and cheap to do.

Is it possible to convert the Buzz 3 front wheel to an inflatable tyre? If it is I'd like to do it - it will overcome the problems of pushing on rough terrain!


Quinny do an All-Terrain front wheel that replaces the front wheels on a Buzz 3. It's basically two new front wheels that are slightly bigger and pnuematic. Worked a treat on a recent holiday to Brixham where we took our Buzz onto the un-surfaced coast path. We got ours from www.babycare.nl a dutch site that sells Quinny Spares it costs Eur62.50.

How do i arrange a service for a quinny buzz - it is now about 3 years old but a really good push chair. pregnant with next child and would like to use the push chair again


You can contact Dorel and they will give you the contact details of their service centre. It is at the moment £50 to have your buggy serviced, and I believe that includes the return delivery costs. Of course any extra parts that are needed may be extra.

Unable to fold and front wheel keeps sticking


Hi Kelly,
Over the years we have seen customers having trouble folding the Buzz. Mostly it's a combination of factors that make a Buzz a bit stiff.
Most important is that the main silver central tube must be clean and preferrably lightly lubricated. (Put some WD40 on with a rag.)
The second point of attention is the grey release knobs: Remove (blow out) any sand or debris and spray in some WD40. Especially the knob on the left that is slide-push needs this attention. (Left-right viewed in the driving direction.)

These grey knobs have to be pushed firmly to properly fold the chassis. (The left one is first-slide-then-push.) When it folds and gives a loud 'clack' you didn't push them in far enough. We know from experience that this sometimes remains difficult for some customers.
Later revisions of the Buzz have slightly larger buttons that are somewhat easier to operate.

Your front wheel probably needs some care. At the side of the black plastic front 'fork' that holds the wheel you will find a small hole. Rotate the front wheel until you see a small button come by. Push it with a pointed object. (A small screwdriver will do)
You can now remove the front wheel from the black front fork. Clean the internals and lubricate, preferrably with a teflon loaded grease or teflon spray. (Spray is less durable than grease)
This will take care of your steering problems.

Alternatively you can have a look at the Quinny Buzz All Terrain wheels. It's a sturdy drop-in replacement for the original wheel:

Funny front wheels


remove the total front housing by pressing the 2 plastic buttons on the silver bar that holds the wheels in place. then get a small screwdriver and put in in the small hole on the black plastic part of the wheel there is a button in there but you will need to look in the hole to find it then push button with screwdriver and pull off the 2 wheels. clean and use wd40 not oil. this should fix problem if not phone dorel (they sell/own quinny) in the UK 00442082360707
