Pick up a tube patch kit. It will come with detailed instructions. You will have to remove the rear wheel from the bike, take the tire off the rim and locate the hole in the tube. If you can't find it right away, put some air in the tube and hold it under water to see where the bubbles originate, thus showing you the leak.

Need diagram for removing rear wheel to fix puncture on power ped

you can easily fix a flat without removing the wheel from the bike if it uses a tube application to inflate racers use this method to save time as you just have limited space to do your repair apposed to removing the wheel completely dunno just a thought because im thinking your bike has wheel tensioner jigs on the rear axle and they can be tricky to get rite if your unaware of how they work and you could do more damage then good so try to slip the tire off one side pull the tube out and mend your flat and dont forget to check the interior of the rubber for burrs of foreign material less then a 10 minute job good luck message back if your stuck ok :)

My quinny rear wheel keeps losing air, ive replaced inner tube but it keeps going flat

Hi it sounds like you have something stuck in th tyre itself that is punturing the new inner tube, take them out & feel inside the tyre if there is anything sharp there remove it. Then you can repair the tubes.

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.

Spare tyre/wheel

You don't need a whole wheel, inner tubes are available at most cycle shops - it is the same size as used on the small bikes for kids (12 1/2 x 1.75 x 2 1/4) - they cost around £4.50 and if you're not sure how to fit it, then they could probably do that as well.
