Broken hood on nordic cruiser

Help!! I use my simo nordic cruiser all the time!! The latch on the hood broke off of the right side and now it no longer stays in one spot. It seems that the left latch cannot hold the weight of the hood with just itself. It is the lever that you can adjust when you want to put the hood forward or backward. The latch folds out for you to move the hood where you want it and then you can push it tight to make the hood stay in place. What should I do??? Thanks! Tara Petersen

It appears that Simo have gone out of business, and their partner company Bertini is not supporting simo strollers, so I don't think you'll get much joy from them. Best I can think of is to take the stroller to any reasonable machine shop, and get them to make a replacement for the broken part from an appropriate material- it is probably the same or a mirror image of the one on the other side. This shouldn't cost too much, but ask first. A quick solution would be to fix an adlustable strap to the hood, going forwards and backwards from the front near the centre. This strap could then be attached to the handle and to the other end behind the hood. ( best way is a buckle stiched to the hood near the open edge, with one continuous strap running from a loop round the handle, through the buckle, then down to a piece of strong elastic attached to just below the base of the hood at the back. A bit of experimenting with the tension on the elastic should get this working quick enough). This may not be an ideal solution, but it may be easiest and cheapest. Hope this helps, if you need to find a machine shop near you then please give a general area and I can see if i can find you one :)

Cable broke how to open hood


If the handle broke you can grab the cord with a pair of pliers or vice grips and pull the cord. If it broke under the hood then you will have to see if you can see the latch under the hood then maybe with a screwdriver you might be able to pry the latch to the side and the hood should pop up. Let me know if it was the right information that I have provided.

How do you open the hood on 85 cad Seville cable broke


Sometimes not easy... Is cable broke at inside handle or at latch under hood? If you can get hold of broken cable inside with some pliers, just pull cable. That usually works. But not sure where your break is. Getting to latch to release is what can be difficult. Also having an extra hand (someone out side tapping on hood or pulling up slightly) while tring to pull cable with pliers

1993 Nissan Sentra XE - Hood Release Broken.


Inside the car where you broke the handle off the hood release you will have to look under the handle or behind the dash to find the cable that it was attached to. IF you find the cable you can grab it with a pair of pliers and pull it to release the hood. It works just like bicycle brakes if you know what i'm saying. Very simple. You shouldn't have any issues finding it. THanks.

Nee Replacement Nut


Can you possibly take a picture of another nut on the carriage that matches the one you lost?  If so I can probably guide you better.

I don't know where you live but try taking the stroller into a hardware store that has a large selection of both Metric and English hardware.  Threads sizes  are all standardized and so are the nuts.  But there are just different styles to pick from.  You might be able to find the right thread size but he nut won't quite look like the original.  And the question is does it matter?  Look for a self locking nut also. One that has a "nylon" insert often called "Ny-loks".  Keeps the nut from coming off.  Get the right size you might want to replace all of them.

Simo 417 Stroller - wobbly wheels


Sounds like the plastic liners that hold the wheel either on or together have worn out.  They make hundreds of different style wheels.  You can try going to any baby supply store that has replacement wheels that have the "same" mounting configuration and see if you can get new ones.  You might need to replace all the wheels and they may look different but at least you'll almost have a new stroller that doesn't wobble.
