Question about Phil & Teds E3 Jogger

1 Answer

I bought the phil and ted sport stroller and I can get the front wheel to lock or swivel, but it still jiggles badly when in the locked position and it's awkward for running. I have had other people stop me to say how it's wiggling so much.

When in 'swivel' mode front wheel turns wildly making it difficult to control and even stops the buggy when the wheel 'stick' at right angles to the buggy


In normal use, the front wheel needs to swivel freely - then this stroller's drive is easy and manageable with one hand (we know from extensive use with 2 kids and shopping on board).

The front wheel normally can not collide with the car. If the wheel assembly / lock is not correctly inserted, it can lock / unlock uncontrolled: try to disengage and mount the front wheel unit again.

Unsufficient tire pressure can also detoriate the drive.

How to take off the front wheel of the Phil and teds stroller?


Hi,
If this is a SPORT model then you just need to pull the knob that controls the swivel/lock on the front wheel. If you pull this completely outwards, the wheel will remove easily.
Hope this helps.

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)

Phil and Teds Sport. Front wheel either moves freely and falls off when you tilt the buggy up or clicks on and is locked in a very limited position, rotating little left or right. Any ideas?


First of all, I cannot tell you how frustrating the Phil & Teds instruction manual is. Our's had one half inch square pictures that were supposed to be adequate to learn how to use this. As a general suggest there are fantastic videos posted by a third part (not Phil & Teds) that are worth watching.

After several frustrating hours I can tell you exactly how to fix this:

1. Put on the rear brake
2. Sit on the ground in front of the stroller but sit slightly on one side or the other
3. Lift up the stroller so that you can see the pin that you pull to release the front wheel
4. Pull the pin slowly out about a quarter of an inch
5. You should see that there are actually two metal pins (one large, one tiny)
6. Twist the knob you pulled so that the tiny pin does not line up with the tiny circle on the inside of the knob
7. Let go of the knob

If you did this correctly, you should be able to have the front wheel locked in the swivel position even if you tillt the stroller upwards.

I hope this helps. I also hope that at some point Phil & Teds hires someone to help them with their instruction manuals. They have several clever and humorous language in them, but when the document does not serve its actual purpose the humor just becomes frustrating. For the cost of the stroller, the company should be embarrassed that its users are resorting to these online forums to help each other, although I am happy to do it.

Enjoy!

Phil and teds sport stroller


hi we had the same problem with our p&t sports buggy, brand new out of the box the front wheel kept locking, driving me mad! we contacted our supplier, kiddicare.com, who were extremely helpful and sent out a "front wheel swivel/fixed catch (screw fixing)" - it has WORKED WONDERS! the buggy is now smooth and easy to handle. you have to remove the old catch pin which can be a bit of a fiddle (when we got the old pin out it was a rivet fixing and very rusty) but only took us 10 minutes. highly recommended if you can get hold of one of these new screw fix pins, which have obviously been brought out to fix a common fault which p&t can't be bothered to recall lots of buggies and fix themselves...... ;)
