Question about Bugaboo Cameleon Stroller
If you visit www.bugaboo.com you will be able to arrange a repair, make sure that you have your serial number to hand.
Also, if the product is still within it's warranty period, I would suggest that you take this back to the retailer for assistance.
I hope this helps.

How to fix a Bugaboo Handle
If you are not a handyperson type, take these instructions
to you local Bicycle Mechanic or Small engineering shop.
The bugaboo handle fault is caused by two small plastic pins
shearing of a plastic disk that actuates two metal locking rods. Why bugaboo uses a plastic disk for
this critical component is beyond me!
Remove the domed star lock washer.
This is the hardest part of the job. Most people try to leaver this off in the hope of re
using. First problem with this is
you will mark or damage the surrounding plastic second is star locks are not
intended for reuse and will never hold as well as when first used, so best find
a new replacement. A hardware
store should be able to source some for you. Quickest way to remove a dome washer is to carefully cut a
slot in the dome with an angle grinder and then use a large screwdriver to
carefully prize one side up so you can fit a screwdriver. Note the walls of the aluminum hub axel
are thin and easily distorted, make sure you only lever the Domed Star Lock and
not hub axel. Use one screwdriver
as a support and another to lift off the Domed Star lock.
Note it is best to open and repair one side at a time, so
your 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/. The lock
mechanism is very simple; a wire rod rotates a plastic disk. Check the hubs for ware. If too badly worn or damaged you will
have too much movement in the locked position. The Frog and Chameleon use the same plastic hub find another
frame to salvage hubs from. They
are held in by a single aluminum rivet.
The disk has two plastic pins that move the locking rods in
and out of the inner hub into and out of the outer hub. You need to either repair the disk by
drilling out the pin stumps and finding a replacement metal screw you can fit /
glue in. Or (my preferred choice)
have a new metal disk fabricated that will last a lifetime.
handle locking hub and check operation.
If wire rods seem to be in the incorrect 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 smooth 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 two (left & right) laser cut
metal disks with stainless steel pins fitted and two new star dome washers. Cost is $150 New Zealand plus
shipping. If you like a set, you
