We had a bent front wheel axle on a NEW Vibe. We just asked for a replacement wheel under warranty, but a new wheel has a thicker attachment piece and, as a result, doesn't swivel properly. Your best bet is to get a front wheel replaced and hope that it fits as it should! Here you can find an official distributer in your area:

Good luck!

Hi there,

I have just bought a second hand phil and teds vibe and have noticed the front wheel is on a slant too. Just wondering if you were able to fix this problem you or did you end up getting a replacement stroller.

Hope you can help!
Thanks

My Phil & Teds Vibe shakes in the front wheel uncontrollably. Do I need a new front wheel?


Hi!

Assuming your tyres have the correct pressure, uncontrollable shaking in 3-wheeld swiveling strollers is usually caused by bearing slack.
Please check the front wheel bearing. It should allow the wheel to rotate freely but it should not be loose on the axle. (ie. It should not slide sideways on the axle.)
In this case you would need a new front fork/wheel assembly.

Please let a dealer have a look at it. As the Vibe has not been around for very long, you may still have warranty.

I hope this helps.

Phil and ted vibe, wont lock and front wheel issues


The Vibe is very fussy to fold and has driven me up the wall on a few occaisions. To get it to lock when folded, the handlebar must be in the fully raised position - I think that is the secret. (The basket should also empty - we keep the raincover in there and it can obstruct when folding.) As for going round in circles, perhaps check that both rear wheels are inflated to the same pressure - but there's no doubt that the front wheel has a mind of its own, particularly at slow speeds or when starting off. Hope this is of some help.

Phil and Teds Vibe front wheel doesn't swivel


I had this problem 4 times with mine!!! the company tried to repair (unsuccessful) and then replaced it. The same problem occurrred with the second one after a month. Phil and Ted's took it back and put a thing called "super lube" on it. At first it was no better, but with a little use it seems to have come good.....for now. This is a terrible stroller that I really regret buying!!!!

Once I've folded my phil & ted vibe (in single mode) the locking clips won't fold into place (I've used as much force as I dare -- worried I might break the clips if I try any harder). This makes it...


When folding the Vibe some important things to remember are that the handlebar must be in the most upright position (perpendicular to the ground), nothing can be below the rear axle level (ie. lift the basket up above this) and the front single wheel should have the side with the attachment bar on the outside.
The fold locks will not engage if everything is not in the correct position. If everything is in the correct position the fold locks will easily engage/disengage. If everything is NOT in the correct position the fold locks will not engage and should not be forced.

Folding:
  1. Put handle bar in upright position.

  2. Undo the side lock clips. Then you lift the red lever on the side to start the fold. Fold so that the pram front wheel and handle come together.

  3. As the pram folds ensure basket is above rear axle and the front wheel has the attachment bar on the outside.

  4. When the pram is fully folded you can fold the side lock clips back in place.

Phil & Ted's Vibe very stiff front wheel


Hi
I am onto my third Phil and Teds Vibe due to issues with the front wheel. It never ever worked smoothly from the moment it was assembled. The first time the UK distributors Outnabout replaced the pin - no help. The next time they replaced the entire no buggy. The new buggy is exactly the same - stiff front wheel that is back breaking to turn and squeaks loudly. Interestingly, I am waiting for Outnabout to send some lubricant that Phil and Teds have recommended; despite being told by the retailer in no uncertain terms NOT to use lubricant. I plan to return the third and final buggy and ask for a full refund or partial refund and replacement with a Sports buggy model. The wheel mechanism is different on that one. Good luck. As you can see, I am all out of answers.

Phil & Ted's Vibe very stiff front wheel


Hello,
We had the same problem when we bought our Dash, 2 weeks ago.
When we compared it to an other Dash from one of our friend it was unbelievable. We exchange our wheel and we undersatood that the problem wasn't the wheel but where you put the wheel.
We cleaned it and removed the excess of paint with a light sand paper.
The result was magical, now it works really well, we can turn just with one finger.
Hope that helps.

How do I make the back rest sit all the way up?


I had the same problem and sold my stroller due to MANY things.Handlebar foam ripping, no 5 point harness on mine,heavy,awkward,wheels hit every isle shopping.It took up all my trunk space,looked old and dirty fast due to me having to put it on the ground to fold and lift it!! The car seat itself that when with it as a travel system had to have a rolled up towel behind it so babies head wouldn't flop forward. I cleaned it up at took the first 50.00 I could get for it after owning it a meer 5 months.....don't regret not having it, I'd rather carry my 22 lb baby than deal with it another day.
