Question about Quinny Freestyle 3 XL Stroller
I have purchased this Quinny as it states on every website that it is forward and backward facing which is why I bought this in the first place.
Now I have no indictaion in the instructions how I can turn the pushchair bit so it is backward facing.
Can anybody help?
I do hope they don't mean it is only backward facing with the car seat as I don't want to push around the Maxi Cosi all the time as I think it is not comfortable enough for my son.
Has anybody got any idea how I can make this to face backward as I'd like to keep an eye on the baby :-)
I have the same problem, and want to convert mine to face backwards but can't see how to do this in the (very limited) instruction manual nor can I work out how to do it after taking the seat off... I have a friend who has (I think) the same model and has it backward facing. I hope to see her soon and will ask her for advice. If no one has given advice on line in the mean time I will let you know what she says!
I had never heard of this stroller so I just spent the last hour on their website, what a cool stroller! Here's a link to the manual that I've been reading..
The manual actually says that for the 'carseat' it has to be installed in the stroller only backward facing. If your friend has it installed the other way I would ask her. When I looked at the diagram of the pins is doesn't look like it would 'click' in safely facing the other way but I could be wrong. This manual has pictures that might help you.
You are very lucky to have your children in this day & age! Our strollers were from the dark ages :-). Good luck to you & your young ones.

Like all Quinny Pramettes/Pushchairs, the Quinny XL is fully reversable.
To swap chair from forward to rear-facing just turn it around and snap it back into place
Here is complete instruction manual:

If instead your problem is that you do not know if to mount frontward or backward facing a car seat, bear in mind that only chairs for babies up to six month can be mounted facing backward when on the front sit. All other baby chairs are mounted facing frontward.

About the only I can suggest which you may have tried already is a safety catch that prevents the push arms from fully repositioning to the opposite side.
The other case may be as you stated that in a more advanced model yours is only intended for use in a car seat. However, this should be against all CODES today as all car seats must have the child facing rearward.
Look for a push pin or other release that will allow the push arms to fully reposition themselves to the other side.
And your friend may hold the final answer for you too. But, I think (as a grand father with two daughters) that you Moms can figure these things out without a man necessarily.
We have another expert on site, dirinda is the first part of her nickname and she will certainly know. I've been holding off awaiting her reply to you. She specializes in these matters.
Regards and good luck,
