Last week the brake was broken and my husband bought a new brake in ebay and it was so easy to change. He found many brake's sellers and he bought to the cheaper one. I leave the link where he bought it if you can help.

SOURCE: The frame tilt seized on Bugaboo Cameleon

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.

SOURCE: my bugaboo cameleon white buttons have stopped

We had this same problem and I just fixed it today. What is happening is either the white plastic buttons expand with time (highly unlikely) or the black plastic housings shrink with time (more likely). To fix it yourself, you need to disassemble the buttons, which can be done with two screwdrivers, and sand down the edges of the white buttons to make them slightly smaller. Here's the process: 1. Behind the white button is a screw. Remove it using a phillips screwdriver. 2. You'll now have a black housing with a white button in it, held in by three white tabs. 3. Free the white button from the housing by pressing inwards on each of the three tabs in turn. 4. You'll now have a black base, a black surround (where the button sits), a spring and a white button. 5. Sand the circumference of the white button evenly until it slips easily in and out of the black surround. 6. Reassemble and repeat for the other side. Good luck, Jesse.

I have a bugaboo wlth the white colour brake and have just found out that the white colour ones are out of date. my question is does anybody know if i can get it changed over to the red one and how much...

Bugaboo don't sell parts as such but they sell the chassis. It will coat you around a third of the price of a new Bugaboo. The new Red brake lever chassis has the lever extension handle locks instead of the wing-nuts and rocker style buttons for the handle release. Your old frame will be quite sort after on eBay. I like the rocker handle release and the extension levers are quick to use and look better but I must warn you the old wing-nut system held the handle better and if you bump down a lot of stairs the new lever system is more prone to slipping, macnutz_16.jpg

We have bought a 2nd hand bugaboo cameleon. The teeth on the right hand break pad are sheared off. Where can we purchase a new break part? I am not having any luck finding this through the Bugaboo official...

You can't. Bugaboo only sell a complete chassis as a spare part! Take both brake pad units off and got to your local plastic welder. He can build up the plastic on the worn one then shape it using the other side as a guide.

My Bugaboo Cameleon break is not working properly. . .

Hi maristel5679. I had the same problem. It's quite easy to fix yourself. There should be a small philips type screw holding the whole assembly onto the frame. Undo this and you will see the inner workings. You just have to realign the ratchet inside. Do this by taking off the whole thing. Be careful when you place it back on the frame as it could slip out of line again because of the tension in the brake line. Undo the tension by slackening the brake screw. replace the hand-brake, tighten the philips screw, then remember to tighten the brake back up. Hope I explained this clearly!! Good luck.

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


Your best bet is to contact 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.

My bugaboo cameleon's break no longer works. It


There are two ways of solving this. You can either contact the retailer where this was purchased for repair under warranty (if this was of course a fault and under two years old) or you can contact Bugaboo for a replacement brake assembly kit. This is very straight-forward to replace yourself. - if you go via Bugaboo themselves, they will require your purchase information, colour, serial number etc.
I hope this helps.

If you contact they will happily sell the complete break assembly to you. This is easy and quick to fit and should resolve your issue.
