Squeaking rear wheel on Maclaren Mac 3

Hi,

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,
Jim

    The beaering assembly is sealed within the wheel hub (similar to a bicycle hub) -- do I just spray the WD-40 on the outside of the wheel hub, or do I need to pop the bearing assembly out of the wheel hub first?

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

NEED NEW WHEELS


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
