We hand handle problems, and no receipt. I just called bugaboo with a serial number and they sent a new chassy.

Don't worry, this is normal. Once you lock the seat into place, the front bar stays put, even if you hop a curb.

How to fix a Bugaboo Handle Locking Mechanism

If you are not the handyperson type, take these instructions to you local bicycle mechanic or small engineering shop.

The cause of the Bugaboo handle fault is due to two small plastic pins shearing off a plastic disk inside the plastic hub. This disk activates two metal locking rods. Why Bugaboo uses a plastic disk for this critical component is beyond me. The disk’s two plastic pins move the locking rods in and out of the inner hub engaging and disengaging the outer hub. You need to either repair the disk by drilling out the pin stumps and finding a metal screw you can fit / glue in or replace with a new metal disk fabricated to last a lifetime.

The lock mechanism is very simple; a wire rod rotates the plastic disk that moves the lock pins. Before replacing the disk, check the hubs for wear. If too badly worn or damaged you will have too much movement in the locked position. Both the Frog and Cameleon use the same plastic hubs so you can find an old frame and salvage replacement hubs. A single aluminum rivet holds them and this is easily drilled out.

1/ Remove the domed star lock. This is the hardest part of the job and most people try to lever this off in the hope of reusing. The first problem is you mark or damage the surrounding plastic, the second is the star lock isn’t intended to be reused and will not hold as well. It is best to find a new replacement - normally sourced from a hardware store on indent.

The quickest way to remove a domed star lock is to carefully cut a slot in the dome with an angle grinder and then use a large screwdriver to gently prise up one side high enough so you can fit a second screwdriver underneath without marking the plastic. Note. The walls of the aluminum shaft the hub rotates on are thin and easily distorted, make sure you only lever the domed star lock and not the shaft. Use the first screwdriver to support the second screwdriver as per photo.

Note it is best to open and repair one side at a time, so the moving and flexing one side of the handle does not dislodge parts in the other side. The hub and disks are mirrors of each other and not interchangeable. The side with the brake lever is left; the Bugaboo parts will have an “L” after their serial numbers.

2/ Reassemble handle locking hub and check operation. If the wire rods seem to be out of position, loosen the top plastic fittings where the handle extends from by removing the small self-tapping screws and wiggle things into alignment. (I use a small amount of the grease used for taps to give a smoother action) If all is working well fit the new star dome on the hub shaft and tap home. To protect the dome finish I use a large socket from my socket set and an old rubber washer from a toilet cistern. Repeat operation on the other side.

I have available kits with (left & right) laser cut metal disks with stainless steel pins and two new star dome locks. Cost is $150 New Zealand plus shipping. If you would like a set, my contact email address is below.

Bugaboo bee pram won't fold - the white button has jammed. How do I releas it?


Not an easy fix the handle unit is all closed in with pop rivets so you need a drill and pop rivet gun just to open it. Try spraying silicon spay in to the inside of the handle where ever can then pull up ******* the release buttons while flexing the joint back and forth.

How do you open a bugaboo frog pram stroller


Hi,

To open the Frog, follow the steps below:

Stand behind the folded stroller, ensuring the handle is on the top of the stroller.
Bend down and place your hands on the handle bar, DONT lift the pram, make sure it stays on the floor.
Push the white button on the inside of the left hand side of the handle bar.
Pull both triggers (located inside of the handle bar) toward you and lift the handle up.
Stand up-right, and place your foot onto the bottom of the two axles which you can see in front of you (make sure that you have your foot on the axle which connects the two small swivel wheels).
Whilst you are standing, with your hands on the handle bar and your foot on the axle, push the axle out with your foot away from you and slightly upwards. This should open the chassis up-right. Please note that the chassis will appear to be unstable and move, this will stop the minute that you click on your carseat/carrycot or seat unit.
I hope this helps.

How do I collapse bugaboo stroller


take off the basinette or seat

then, there are 2 knob, sticking out of the sides of the frame, about 6 inches below the handle, from the normal pushing position, hook yr fingers round them and slide them up the frame towards the handle

the handle will drop, then just up the frame from the cross bar under where the set is.

easy once you know how

if it still don't work, go to your local park and accost the nearest person with a bugaboo and ask for some help - there'll be hundreds of them!
