Can I Fix Spring Loaded Mechanism on the Brica Roll n Go Car Seat Transporter?
Hi, I am trying to figure out how to get into the spring mechanism for the Wheel Lock on the car seat transporter. What happened: Wheeling my son out of the airport, I took the escalator down, and of course, I came in for a hard landing at the bottom and overstressed the spring on one of the wheel locks. I am trying to get into this location to see if i can re-attach the spring. I tried the removal of two axel pins to slide off wheels, but it might be that i have to separate the enclosure, with all its screws, to get to the spring. Can someone describe how to go about opening up the case and to re-attach a spring to the Brica Roll n Go Car Seat Transporter for educational purposes only?? Thank You for the Education Only, and any actual attempt is repair man/woman's liability.

without seeing it (a picture) that is a difficult question to respond to. it may have possibly broken or a piece of plastic needed to keep it in place broke - or the spring is defective. suggest get a new basket. (or go to the store, or find a neighbor with a similar model - and look at his basket, take a pic of the spring mechanism with your cellphone and go home to fix your own.)
Should be no big issue.
The seat slides in "rails" and there is a spring loaded latch mechanism.
I'd start by removing the seat, turn it upside down, and make sure the latch is set in the "slider" part of the rails.
Took a while but finally figured it out. Original thinking was that the problem is in the handle twist and release mechanism. The problem actually lies in the collar where the unit locks into place. If the stroller is in the open position it can't be fixed unless it's folded up. To open stroller without the twist handle -- locate both black spring loaded collars where it locks into place (approx outside where the seat and seat back meet). Manually pull both the collars up the shaft. The spring is tight and it may take an extra set of hands to get the right leverage. Once the unit is in the folded position -- flip the stroller upside down and blast WD-40 into the hole where the spring pins are and work the black collar up and down. The twist mechanism on the handle will now work. My daughter claims it didn't even work that good when the stroller was brand new and we saved the time and trouble of shipping the entire stroller and seat system back to Georgia just to let the Graco people decide what to do. Bottom line is that this mechanism design stinks from the get go. Hope this helps.
Under the car on the on the gear shift lever is a spring this spring is ether missing or broken. Get under the car look in between the drivers seat area and the shift mechanism, maybe part of the spring is still hanging there. If not go to a local auto salvage yard and try to see where they fit.
The manual lever to release the seat is supposed to have a spring on it to return the release lever to the lock position, if the lever does not spring back when you let go of the seat adjustment lever then you know there is a missing, dis-connected, or broken return spring.
If this is the case try putting the seat where you want it to be and make sure that the adjustment lever returns to the lock position, now check to see if the seat will lock in with the adjustment lever in the lock position.
If it does lock in repair or replace the return spring.
Make sure that the adjustment lever is attached to the locking linkage and it does move the locking mechanism.
If it still does not lock into place then there is something wrong with the seat locking mechanism, and some WD-40 sprayed onto the seat rails and track might release a stuck mechanism, and if everything seems to be working alright, and you can see that the locking mechanism in the seat rail is moving in and out of the lock position, then the locking tabs are most likely sheered off and you will need to replace the seat.
Also look under the drivers side seat and compare the lever position and the linkage connections with the passenger side seat, and make sure that it is all operating like the drivers side seat.
Hi , there is a special tool required to release the mechanism catch so you can push the roll over protection bars back to the opperation position , if you have a local dealer to you, they should be able to reset them at little or no cost , hope this helps , regards mark .
all these rewinds are a pain! the rewind mechanism is a spring-loaded coil. fault is possibly that the cable is jammed and you may be able to free it by gently tugging and releasing. otherwise there is a problem with the spring and that is not worthwhile repairting
