Question about Baby Gear
My pushchair is fine when pushing outside, but as soon as i go into a shop the front wheels dont move they glide across the floor which makes it very hard to push im unsure why mine is doing it as my friend has the same make and hers is fine
Some models have front and rear brakes, also some have locks to prevent the wheels from swiveling check those items first. The next step would be to flip the stroller over and try to spin the wheels, sometimes debris can jam the wheels.

SOURCE: wheels have worn down
If you go on the Maclaren website, I know that if you are in the UK its how you do it. Then basically look for the repairs tab, then it will give you the option to search for your nearest stockist of these wheels. Beware you may need to travel a distance! Maclaren aren't the best when it comes to customer service, and they need to work on how to improve the back wheels..they do wear down way too fast!
Hope this helps - Failing that I found some on eBay?
Best of Luck

I have had this problem as well but what you need to do is take the front wheel off by pushing in the 2 black buttons. Then when you do this there is a hole near the bottom, what you need to do is turn the wheel until you can see the pin inside then use something thin to puch it in this will release the wheel. You need to clean the inside of this and then spray with silicon spray NOT WD40 as that will make it worse.
In the instructions it does tell you to make sure you keep them oiled but it does not tell you how to do it.
Once you have done this it will work like new again. I took mine on the beach and had to clean the sand out and i also think that from where we have had all this snow the grit has not helped either.
I hope this works for you as it has for me, i love my Quinny and would not change it for the world but i was starting to hate it before i done this

SOURCE: The front wheel on my
The best thing to do is to remove the front wheel (depress the black buttons either side of the front axle and pull!) then completely clean the wheel assembly in warm water and a SMALL amount of gentle detergent, then dry completely, apply a small amount of vaseline or similar, then replace. This should help.
