SOURCE: Phil and Teds Sport. Front wheel either moves

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!

SOURCE: Phil & Ted's Vibe very stiff front wheel

Hi
I am onto my third Phil and Teds Vibe due to issues with the front wheel. It never ever worked smoothly from the moment it was assembled. The first time the UK distributors Outnabout replaced the pin - no help. The next time they replaced the entire no buggy. The new buggy is exactly the same - stiff front wheel that is back breaking to turn and squeaks loudly. Interestingly, I am waiting for Outnabout to send some lubricant that Phil and Teds have recommended; despite being told by the retailer in no uncertain terms NOT to use lubricant. I plan to return the third and final buggy and ask for a full refund or partial refund and replacement with a Sports buggy model. The wheel mechanism is different on that one. Good luck. As you can see, I am all out of answers.

My Phil & Teds Vibe shakes in the front wheel uncontrollably. Do I need a new front wheel?


Hi!

Assuming your tyres have the correct pressure, uncontrollable shaking in 3-wheeld swiveling strollers is usually caused by bearing slack.
Please check the front wheel bearing. It should allow the wheel to rotate freely but it should not be loose on the axle. (ie. It should not slide sideways on the axle.)
In this case you would need a new front fork/wheel assembly.

Please let a dealer have a look at it. As the Vibe has not been around for very long, you may still have warranty.

I hope this helps.

Phil & Ted Sport V1 wobbles and pulls


Hi,

It sounds like that the tyre or innertube has perhaps become warped, this can happen when there has been over or under inflation.
I would suggest that you try first with a new innertube (get one from a local bicycle shop with a 'bent valve' as this makes inflation easier). If this doesn't help, then you can then try a new tyre and see if that helps.

I hope this helps.

Removing rear whells from Phil andTeds Classic pram


Press the button and pull the axle out as far as it will go. At the button end is a metal collar - hold this firmly and push the button, without pushing the axle back in. This will loosen the 2 ball bearings at the other end of the axle and you can pull it out. It is a bit fiddly but i just managed it after the same problem.

Wheel bearings on E3 phil and Teds stroller


We had a similar problem. You can get replacement axles from the Phil & Ted website http://store.philandteds.com/parts/index.cat for US$8.99 plus postage and you can get new bearings (FR8-ZZ Flanged Bearings 1/2" x 1 1/8") from www.usabearingsandbelts.com for US$7 per pair including postage. (you'll need a pair for each wheel). If you buy the whole wheel option (US$39)from Phil & Ted it doesn't come with the axle and the axle definitely does not come with bearings. ;( Trust this helps.
