Question about Maclaren Quest Sport Stroller

1 Answer

Back Wheel The back left wheel is loose. I can't figure out how to tighten it. I can't seem to tighten it with a wrench. And it doesn't shorten with a hammer whacking away. Do I need a special tool?

    I have a maclaren techno and the back wheels are very worn. I have another pushchair as a donor but am unable to remove the wheels off either of them. Please can you tell me how its done. It looks like it is held on with a washer.

How do you adjust chain

Flip bicycle up-side-down so it sits on the seat and handlebars. Loosen the 2 nuts that hold the rear wheel on. Sitting behind the bike on the ground, so that you can align the wheel to a straight position, pull the wheel back so that the chain is snug. You don't need to pull hard, just hold the wheel in place and straight. Using the other hand, slowly tighten the axle nuts back down until the wheel is held in place. Once the nuts are tight enough to securely hold the wheel, tighten the nuts. Sometimes this method will make the chain too tight. If this happens, repeat the process as above, only this time when you go to tighten the nuts back down, squeeze the chain slightly to create a bit of slack. Ideally, the chain will be tight enough not to skip or slip, and at the same time, loose enough not to make noise, bind up, or do any damage.

There are "chain tensioners" available that hook around the rear dropouts of the frame and also around the axle, allowing you to tighten the chain to exact specs. simply by tightening or loosening adjuster screws. They will also help to keep things from loosening up over time. These make things much easier and I highly suggest looking into them.

Use any of a variety of oils and lubes available, but try to avoid WD-40 for chain lube. It will stop a squeak for now and make things seem to move smoother, but in the long run, WD-40 will attract dirt and debris to the constantly moving parts of your chain and can shorten the life of a chain considerably. Hope this helps.

How do I tighten the nuts on my bench grinder?

A bench grinder has left handed threads on one shaft and right handed on the other,so that the grinding stones don't unscrew the nut as you grind something.I haven't ever gotten around to getting a bench grinder,but on my father's, I used to just hand tighten the nut,then grab the grinding wheel with my hand while tightening the nut with a wrench.(You don't have to make it real tight,as the wheel pushing against the nut will keep it tight)

My chain has fallen off, and I can't put it back on. Every time that i think I have it on there again, it falls off shortly after. I don't know if the first time it happened something feel off too...

Hi emsfy...

When you put your chain back on this time, you will need a open end adjustable wrench or a wrench that will fit the nuts that are on the rear axle shaft and wheel assembly.
When you get your wrench, loosen the two nuts (1 on each side of the axle) and pull the axle wheel assembly back towards the back of the slot the axel is sitting in to tighten the chain, when the chain is tight you will tighten the two axel nuts and the job is finished.
The chain will stay on now.
Please take time to rate me thumbs up

ABS enguaging on its own. Replaced both front wheel bearings. What would cause this? Had a recent MVI done and the Mechanic said the front Right wheel bearing need to replaced. He put a new on on and...

Not supposed to use air gun on axle nut

Torque Wrench -- as you did

Check Wheel Sensors -- one may be bad or more
likely the mechanic damaged it.

Use a Volt Meter --put on A/C unplug sensor &
put meter on wires and spin the wheels

Do all four & compare

Need to tighten loose steering wheel

You mean the steering wheel is rocking back and forth? I hope, because if it is slipping left and right, it is not the wheel but the steering control arm, Or something else down under the car. To get to the wheel, take off the horn, I don't think you have airbags, a couple screws in the back should do it, then get to the nut, torque that thing up, you should be all set. Hope this helps.

Chain has become loose and will ride off gears while in use

If its a singlespeed:

Examine the tightness of the bolts that attach the axle to the frame by loosening then with a wrench. If it was loose that could have been the problem.

Now check the alignment and equal spacing of the wheel inside the frame. Pull the wheel back in the dropouts so the chain has an inch or two of looseness. Lightly tighten the bolts and check again and crank the wheel with the pedals and spin. Check the chain and equal alignment of the wheel. Tighten the bolts that attach the wheel to the frame.

If its a quick release, make sure that when tightening you apply a good amount of force to close the lever at least 90 to 100 degrees. And do all of the above.

Unplug it. Open the cover(s). Find the tensioning knob - this is usually right on top, and it is raises the top wheel (or ins some cases an idler wheel) - thereby tightening the blade. Lower the top wheel by turning the tensioning knob a few turn counter-clockwise. This will give you enough slack to re-install the blade. Wear leather gloves and reinstall the blade. Tighten the tensioning knob a bit. Turn the wheel by hand a little to see that the blade tracks OK. Tighten it a bit more. The correct amount of tension pretty much has to be determined by trial and error. If the blade comes off, or bends too much while you try to cut, or cuts poorly, then it's too loose. If you over-tighten it you can break the blade or prematurely wear out your machine. Close the cover and plug it back in. You can adjust the tension with the cover closed, and you can even tighten it while the saw is running. But I wouldn't loosen it while the saw is running.

The rear wheel bearings on my k reg mitsubishi lancer was replaced by a garage 3 weeks ago but it has just disintergrated on the motorway, any idea what the garage may have done wrong ,i know they did not...

Your guess is probably correct that they were over tightened on installation, or perhaps not greased at all? even if they were loose, they wouldn't be destroyed.

Loose chain

Loosen the Back Nuts on the Side of the Rear Wheel, Then use a Wrench to Turn the Bolts extending out the Rear of the Bike in Clockwise to pull the Rear Wheel Back, Thus Tacking Slack out of the Chain. Do Not over Tighten as the CHain Tightens some itself with Flex when you put Weight on it. Retighten Axle Nut. Thats it.
