Squeaking rear wheel on Maclaren Mac 3


One of the rear wheels on our Mac 3 squeaks big time, and is only getting louder and more obnoxious with time. It looks like it is a sealed bearing, so do I need to have the bearing repacked, or do you think I can use WD-40 to get rid of the squeak. (Note: I am worried about the WD-40 attracting dirt and causing more serious issues in the bearing assembly, so I didn't want to try it without getting some expert advise first.)

Thank you,

Re: Squeaking rear wheel on Maclaren Mac 3

Hi jimmacd, W-D 40 is the perfect solution. It will not attract any dirt or cause problems in the bearing assembly.

Any idea on how to stop my right rear wheel on my buzz squeaking? Its over two years old so out of guarantee? Its really bugging me now :(

Hi Samantha

The most common reason for this would be a build up of dirt and debris around the section of the wheel that fits into the chassis - this would cause friction, which then causes the noise. Remove the rear wheels and clean the spoke (which goes into the chassis) with some furniture polish and a soft cloth - this should stop the noise.

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

Hi, ive just bought a qunniy buzz 3 chassis with no rear wheels and was just wondering if any quinny buzz rear wheels will fit? many thanks

Good Afternoon

As long as the rear wheels you fit are for the Quinny Buzz they will fit. Older style wheels will have a slightly different hub cap to the newer style wheels. Older style wheels may not be an ideal fit in a newer chassis as they may not click in properly though so it would be recommended that the wheels purchased are the ones relevant to the chassis.

How do you oil a bugaboo pram ? Mine is making a horrible squeaking noise. Thank you Megan

Use silicon spray not oil based lubricants like WD40 . Lubricate the wheels and brake lever avoid the handle extension locking levers and the upper handle. Once a month spray some in to the handle locks. Look on the inside of the handle where it joins onto the plastic hubs. You'll see a slot in the plastic part and a wire rod in that slot. SPRAY IT!!! It will save you big $$$ in the long run. If wheels feel gritty remove from stroller and drop them in a bucket of hot soapy water. Rinse under running water give them a good spray of silicon and wipe off excess with a paper towel.

Looking to change from quinny buzz 4 to a quinny buzz 3 where can i get front wheel /

You can buy all the types of buzz wheels (front 3 wheel unit, front 4 wheel fork unit, front 3 all terrain air inflated unit and rear wheels) direct from Dorel, go to or Tel: 01842 763281., they are always super helpful and very nice. Or you can buy them from this retailer (which I found to be a good deal cheaper) or on ebay which are definitely more expensive for new wheels, but perhaps not for used ones. Hope this helps.

An you get hard rear wheels for the quinny buzz 3

No sorry but you can get new inner tubes very cheaply off ebay & something called gludge(i think thats what it is called) anyway all bike shops sell it so does ebay, you can buy it to put inside tyre so you won't get a punture or a spray which you put inside inner tube it seals it right away if you get a puncture . it is easy to do I did it myself.
