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...... ;)"

I've made contact with the store I've bought my e3 from, now, waiting to hear from them about this 'fix screw'. hopefully it'll solve our probs!
Good luck

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.

Loola up front wheel not swiveling


Hi,
The swivel mechanism on the Loola Up front wheels is controlled by a wire which runs up inside the chassis. If your wheel is locked and you're unable to move the swivel button it would indicate this wire has come off its fixings inside. To repair this, we would need the chassis to be sent to our engineers for inspection / repair work.
If you're in the UK and it is under 2 years old please contact your retailer with proof of purchase and they will make arrangements for this under warranty terms and conditions.
If you're in the UK and it is over 2 years old or you no longer have proof of purchase please contact the customer service department on 01284 413 141 Mon-Fri 8.30-4.30 (Excluding Bank Holidays) to book in for chargeable inspection / repair. Charges start at 39.99GBP for single repair and do include courier collection and delivery.
If you're not in the UK please visit www.maxi-cosi.com or www.bebeconfort.com (depending on the make of your Loola Up) and select the country you're in, then use the Contact Us tab to get in touch with the customer service department in your country

Hello i have the bebe car multipla at (vogue color) its says underneat the seat 2005..i am wondering if the wheels can swivel more then thez do thez just seem to go a lill ways ,,has this was bough second...


Whereas the Multipla chassis had front wheels that could swivel by 360 degrees, the Multipla AT had steerable front wheels designed to turn in parallel with each other, by several degrees in either direction, when set in 'steering' mode, or to remain fixed, when in 'fixed' mode, the mode being controlled by a plastic button on the side arm. A set of instructions relevant to your particular model is available from service@bebecar.co.uk.

I have a jane slalom pro my front wheel is driving me mad it is wobbling so much that my pram will not move forward sometimes, any help would be appreciated.


We have this problem with our powertwin when my toddler is not riding in the front and I only have the baby in the carseat at the back. There is not enough weight at the front to keep the front wheel firm on the ground. I solve the problem by switching the front wheel from swivel mode into locked mode whenever I only have the baby in the pushchair. But I switch it back as soon as my toddler gets in the front since its impossible to navigate with a fixed front wheel when the pushchair is fully loaded.

Babyjogger city elite front wheel shakes


You need to put more weight on the front of the stroller. The wheel is shaking because it's able to swivel....

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!!!!

The front wheels on my Maclaren XLR keep locking up


Hi,

When you click the wheel release (to make them go onto swivel mode) press a little harder as it sounds like you haven't fully engaged the release mechanism.

I hope this helps.
