Re: Simo 417 Stroller - wobbly wheels
Sounds like the plastic liners that hold the wheel either on or together have worn out. They make hundreds of different style wheels. You can try going to any baby supply store that has replacement wheels that have the "same" mounting configuration and see if you can get new ones. You might need to replace all the wheels and they may look different but at least you'll almost have a new stroller that doesn't wobble.

Hi, The best option is to try ebay they may have wheels for sale, if not you can sometimes get a frame for spares or repair very cheaply which you can then take the wheels of it for your stroller. Regards Marie
To remove the wheel, there is a small silver ball on each side of the wheel assembly. This part is located on the part of the stroller where the wheels assemble and the frame of the stroller meet. Push in on this silver ball and pull the wheel assembly off. Sometimes you may need to use a ball point pin to push that ball in so you can get it in far enough. Once you have the old assembly off, the new on will simply snap into the same place. Let me know if this isn't what you needed!
Can you possibly take a picture of another nut on the carriage that matches the one you lost? If so I can probably guide you better.
I don't know where you live but try taking the stroller into a hardware store that has a large selection of both Metric and English hardware. Threads sizes are all standardized and so are the nuts. But there are just different styles to pick from. You might be able to find the right thread size but he nut won't quite look like the original. And the question is does it matter? Look for a self locking nut also. One that has a "nylon" insert often called "Ny-loks". Keeps the nut from coming off. Get the right size you might want to replace all of them.

It appears that Simo have gone out of business, and their partner company Bertini is not supporting simo strollers, so I don't think you'll get much joy from them.
Best I can think of is to take the stroller to any reasonable machine shop, and get them to make a replacement for the broken part from an appropriate material- it is probably the same or a mirror image of the one on the other side. This shouldn't cost too much, but ask first.
A quick solution would be to fix an adlustable strap to the hood, going forwards and backwards from the front near the centre. This strap could then be attached to the handle and to the other end behind the hood. ( best way is a buckle stiched to the hood near the open edge, with one continuous strap running from a loop round the handle, through the buckle, then down to a piece of strong elastic attached to just below the base of the hood at the back. A bit of experimenting with the tension on the elastic should get this working quick enough). This may not be an ideal solution, but it may be easiest and cheapest.
Hope this helps, if you need to find a machine shop near you then please give a general area and I can see if i can find you one :)
I'm in the same boat! It seems all the strollers on the market have an "integrated" 5 point restraint system, so belts aren't available for individual purchase. If you find something, let me know. Our 6 month old needs to sit up in the stroller now and I'm about to rig up a modified dog leash!
Problem suggests that the stroller needs a good servicing.The equipment is now being operated ignoring the safty standards and may turn out dangerous.It is recommended that you may get a authorised service engineer to look into the problem.
