I was trying to take the front wheel off, and I went a little too far. I actually unscrewed the little lever, and two springs fell on the floor. How do I put that whole part back together properly? I hope that this makes sense.

When you say the wheels fell off did they break of at the spokes (making the wheels useless) or did they just come off the metal stub axles? The Eddie Bauer is not a brand available in new Zealand but I've fixed a lot of strollers and the most common problem is a failed Star-lock washer. Most strollers use a star-lock to hold the wheels on, either a shiny domed one in plan view or a plain flat one hidden behind a plastic hub cap. Check this out
its just like a bicycle tire, make sure its on straight (the screwy lever thign) and secure, make sure it was nto cross threaded. fyi.. i had this exact one, had all sortsa problems, id by new! i had strictly used it for walking.... nothing else.. and i put the seat on one day, and baw the tray came undone, and it had never coem undone before.. not even by me, i think the liil wings that clamp it gave oput, it was in the trash the same day!
bUGABOO will send out free replacemnt buttons even if your pram is out of warranty you need to contact them. They will fix the problem but i had to put them in the oposite sides to what their instructions suggested for them to work so def a fiddly job but does fix problem.
I just repaired my Bugaboo Chameleon brake. If the white brake lever doesn't "lock" i.e stays in its forward position, locking the brake you need to disassemble the brake handle housing. Open the black plastic cover by unscrewing the two screws. The handle should come off with a little tweaking. Remove the brake wire. The "button" where you are supposed to release the brake is actually a sort of cogwheel that stops the lever from springing back. Sometimes the cogwheel gets too pushed in the handle. You can tell if it has done so by observing the 8 small grooves that are out of place. Simply take a small flat object like a flat screwdriver and pry the button out. It should pop out as it is spring loaded. Now put it back in its position but TURN IT so it fit in the grooves. Put it back in the black handle, by reversing the disassembly process. Easy!

The same thing happened to mine. I had a good look at what was going on and decided that the length of brake chord is ever so slightly too short. Even with the brake cable adjuster as far "down" as it can go, the chord brings the brake shoe up too close to the wheel making the "raspberry noise" on the left. I got my brand new bugaboo suspiciously cheap and am now wondering whether perhaps it was a factory second because of the short chord.
Anyway, after a bit of tinkering the problem has been almost eradicated, it now only makes the rude noise on the tightest of turns.
1) First, ensure the brake cable adjuster is as far down as possible by rotating it clockwise until you can rotate no further. It can be a bit fiddly so try taking the right big wheel off to get better access to the adjuster.
If the adjuster was not at the bottom before then put the wheel back on and give it another go - it might now work!
2) if not, turn the chassis upside down and identify the thinner cross-bar, just above the "big wheel" axle. You should be able to see 2 screws, one at either end of the bar.
Unscrew the screw at the opposite end of the bar to the brake cable. Now, GENTLY pull the brake at the same end( the green nobbly bit)upwards, towards you whilst re-tightening the screw you've just removed. Only release the little bit of tension on the brakes once the screw is fully tightened.
This step might seem a bit pointless, as it appears that you unscrew a screw, then do it straight back up. Fair point but that tiny bit of flex in the brake/crossbar assembly made all the difference to ours!
I do hope this helps - I really think there is a bit of a design fault here as ideally the adjuster should be set in the middle of the range so that adjustments can be made either side of the neutral. Mine is right on the lower limit and hence has no further room for adjustment. Unless of course it is, as I say, a factory second!! Sorry if I've gone all technical.
I had similar. Actually if you release the black block underneath by unscrewing the lateral screw. Be careful as their is a spring underneath the black block.
Having removed all of this, push the grey button up from underneath with the wheels push full on. This will lock them, THen keeping them pushed full on, replace the spring, black block and lateral screw.
This worked for me. Seems bad as a work around but it does the trick.
