Hi Ashley

At Dorel we never recommend oil based lubricants as they will add a sticky residue to the product which will attract more dirt and debris which in turn causes friction, leading to a squeaking noise.

We would advise cleaning of the wheels and axle is done with furniture polish or dry Teflon spray to remove dirt and grime and any residue which may be causing friction.

We would recommend you contact Uppababy for further advice

Any idea on how to stop my right rear wheel on my buzz squeaking? Its over two years old so out of guarantee? Its really bugging me now :(


Hi Samantha

The most common reason for this would be a build up of dirt and debris around the section of the wheel that fits into the chassis - this would cause friction, which then causes the noise. Remove the rear wheels and clean the spoke (which goes into the chassis) with some furniture polish and a soft cloth - this should stop the noise.

Hi, ive just bought a qunniy buzz 3 chassis with no rear wheels and was just wondering if any quinny buzz rear wheels will fit? many thanks


Good Afternoon

As long as the rear wheels you fit are for the Quinny Buzz they will fit. Older style wheels will have a slightly different hub cap to the newer style wheels. Older style wheels may not be an ideal fit in a newer chassis as they may not click in properly though so it would be recommended that the wheels purchased are the ones relevant to the chassis.

On my bugaboo bee 2009 model the rear wheel makes a grinding noise gets worse if on a pavement that is slightly bummpy can anyone help please?


There has been a lot of complaints about the Bee's wheels on the internet including Bugaboo's own Face Book page! Your Bugaboo is ether in or only just out of the 2 year Warranty so contact Bugaboo customer service about getting a replacement set. The rear wheels are held by Hex nuts and are easy to remove with a small hex key any hardware shop can sell you. I use Silicon grease (as used to lubricate taps) when I repair stroller wheels. I think the Bee is a neat little Stroller and my wife has one but it really is only a Shopping Mall Stroller and those little wheels won't tolerate to much rough suburban footpaths.

Do the new quinny buzz wheels fit an old 2005 chassis?


Hi
No, the attachment for Quinny Buzz rear wheels changed in 2009 so current style rear wheels are not suitable for use on pre-2009 model chassis.
The front wheel fitting has not changed.

Just bought the Dash. I feel that it pulls when you walk. Also having trouble with front wheel when in the swivel position. It will swivel one way but when you try to push/pull the stroller to line the...


One or more wheels may be crooked, either the axle is bent or there's the manufacturer defect. I would call the store you purchased it from to see if they can warranty the repair or replace any faulty parts.

(Personally for the price I don't recommend Phil & Ted's stroller as there are far better make & models out there that won't have such issue. I don't want to discourage you but that's been our experience with these strollers)

Wheels that squeak and front wheels do not turn properly


USE A SILICON SPRAY TO LUBRICATE IT. I DON'T USE OIL OR WD 40 BECUASE A STROLLER IS A PRODUCT FOR KIDS.

Squeaky Wheels


To remove the wheels there are a plastic cap over the nut and if you can take that off that unfasten the nut and it should come off clean. The wheels might be squeaking because you might have them on to tight.
