Seat Positions Won't lock

The seat ratchet system won't lock into the different positions. We were advised to loosen the screw behind the mechanism and apply the lubicant. It doen't appear to have improved it. Any suggestions?

Re: Seat Positions Won't lock

I had the same problem, It looked like some irregular wear on the with buttons or sand or dirt trappped. I took the screw out of the mechanism, dissasembled it and used a screwdriver to push in the tabs that hold the button. With the button out I sanded all round the edges of it, starting with some coarse paper and moved to find to make it nice and smooth, lubricated it and reassembled. Its a bit fiddly to get back together but there does not look like anything is going to break or get lost.

Works ok now. This would probably void your warranty, but we had lost our recipt and it saved a big repair bill. Took about 45 mins.

My bugaboo bee won't recline, the mechanism seems stuck, when I push the release to lie it back the mechanism gets stuck in the up position and nothing happens. The two white buttons on the side

Hi, When the stroller is open, make sure that both of the green indicators either side of the frame are visible. If not, put your foot on the brake and pull the handle firmly with both hands until the green appears. This will enable you to get access to the seat. If the seat doesn't move still, check at the bottom (where the small of babies back is) to see if the excess seat fabric has become stuck inside. This is usually the main reason for the seat recline not functioning. Hope this helps.

Iv been given a bugaboo cameleon from interstate and it won't open ? and the seat is also attached now ..and I can't get it off .'it was made in 2005. Thank you .

Frame won't open with seat attached and the seat should not fit on a closed frame? The seat is the locking component for the frame. Someone has used brute force to get it like that and it'll take brute force to undo the damage. Get a can of silicon spray and lubricate the seat locks and turn stroller upside down to get some to run down inside the seat legs. Press both square seat release buttons inward (one side has a small safety lock you heed to side across before you push inward) and heave up! You cant do any more damage than what may have been done.

The white push buttons on either side of my bugaboo cameleon buggie are getting stuck in not allowing the seat to lock into any of the three positions.

You need to replace them, you can get them easily enough I bought a pair on e bay last week for 5 euro. Very easy to change just one screw.

How to fold a beby trend expedition single

• Close the canopy as described in the canopy section. Recline seat by releasing buckle as described in seatback positioning section.
• The stroller is folded by simultaneously pulling each trigger fold. . When the fold latches are released, the handle will begin to fall toward the floor. Release the fold buttons and press downward on the stroller handle until the stroller is completely folded. Secure the stroller in the folded position by hooking the fold latch, located on the right side of the stroller, over the rivet that protrudes from the frame.
* The canopy features a ratchet system that allows the canopy to be moved forward to block the sun or wind. To adjust the canopy’s position, push forward or backward on the canopy until the canopy is in the desired position. See figure 23.
* The seat has a multiple position recline that is controlled by a strap and buckle assembly behind the seat. . To recline the seat, loosen the strap through the buckle and adjust to the required recline position. To place the seat back in the upright position, press upward on the seat back with one hand while pulling the strap through the buckle with the other. The strap will lock automatically.

Adjusting the seat

I'm having the same dilemma. I just got this at a consignment sale. It seems in perfect condition. I think that the amount of sitting/reclining is only what you get by pulling the red tab. I don't think it is meant to sit all the way up. It loosens the same as you would loosen a belt strap. I wish it had a locking mechanism.
I can't figure out what the rubber "button hole" looking tab is on the left side near the front hinge of the overhead shade.
