Question about Safety 1st Acella LX Winnie the Pooh Standard Stroller

1 Answer

Squeaky Wheels I have a Safety 1st stroller (not sure of the model) that looks very similar to this one. The wheels squeak terribly. We have used WD-40 and oil but that has not helped. I want to remove the wheels, clean them and apply oil inside before re-attaching them. Can you tell me how to remove the wheels? Thank you!

Re: Squeaky Wheels

To remove the wheels there are a plastic cap over the nut and if you can take that off that unfasten the nut and it should come off clean. The wheels might be squeaking because you might have them on to tight.

Squeak on rear wheels

Hi Ashley

At Dorel we never recommend oil based lubricants as they will add a sticky residue to the product which will attract more dirt and debris which in turn causes friction, leading to a squeaking noise.

We would advise cleaning of the wheels and axle is done with furniture polish or dry Teflon spray to remove dirt and grime and any residue which may be causing friction.

We would recommend you contact Uppababy for further advice

What tool is used to take strollers apart

Generally strollers are a collection of aluminum rods fitted into plastic supports and locked in with aluminum rivets. Wheels are generally fitted to the axel with capped star locks but have some clip arrangement to remove wheels from the frame for packing down.
Rivets have to be drilled out and replaced with new ones. To flair off the new rivet properly you need a clinch tool & dolly but you can make a less pretty repair with a ball-peen hammer and punch. Capped star locks need to be prized off and will never hold as well again so best replaced. So you need to have some new rivets and capped star locks be for you attempt to dismantle a stroller.

My Maclaren stroller has squeaky wheels, what can I do?

clean the wheels with soupy water, clean out all mud and things in between the wheels and hinges area. Check for loose parts, cracks and worn condition, repair and replace them if you can, let the wheels dry out then spray the hinges and any moving part and source of friction them with lubricant like W40.

I have a second hand Safety First Quicksmart Stroller without a manual. There are 6 steps to unfold the stroller but I can't get past step 2, it's the part that allows the wheels to swivel around to face the right direction. I can't see a visible button or leaver. Any help will be gratefulyl received.

Urban Jungle: push very heavy, squeaks

You may try removing the wheels, cleaning all dirt and debris from the axel and the wheel, coating both the axel and inside of the wheel with silicone spray. If the axel is badly pitted from the dirt rubbing against it, you can use some emery cloth to smooth it back out before putting the wheel back on.

I have the same problem, one of the bearings are broken on the front wheel and one on the back.
I managed to remove one of the good bearings to go and get replacements, but I can seem to get the outer bearing on the back wheel (the one thats broken) away so to fit replacements.
If I can get if off I will let you know.
There are some wheels on ebay but don't think they will fit the Mac 3, still looking

Steering awkward and squeaky wheels.

Hi, We have a pram ora duoletto which had the same problem we brought wd40 from robert dyers and it worked a treat it fixes any squeeks. It costs about £3.75 but will last an age. We sprayed our wheels a month ago and there have been no more squeeks since.
Hope this helps.
