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!

1/. 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 prize off.
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.

2/. The lock mechanism is very simple; a wire rod rotates a plastic disk. 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 ether 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.

3/. Reassemble handle locking hub and check operation. (I use a small amount of the grease used for taps to give a smooth action) If all is 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.

4/. Repeat operation on the other side. Note the disks are mirror images of each other and are not interchangeable. Bugaboo calls the side with the brake lever “LEFT” the disk will have a serial number that ends with “L”. I have had metal disks laser cut and stainless steel pins fitted. Cost of a disk with a new star dome washer is $75 New Zealand. If you like one or a set, you can contact me macnutz@xnet.co.nz

Graco Super Seville Pushchair How do I adjust the 3 postition seat


Hi there

At the back of the seat is a metal bar, pull that up and pull the seat back.

I've found with mine that if the handle is one of the two positions (can't remember which, I think it's for forward facing pushchair) you can't recline it at all. I have to move the handle the other way first then recline it.

To move the handle there are two button/levers, one on each side. Lift those up and the handle will move, make sure it then clicks into place.

Hope that helps

The flush handle isn't working right


hi there:) if your flush handle is not working rite it is probably broken. the good news is that a flush handle is very inexpensive (most) and very easy to replace. if you take the top off your toilet tank and look at it you will see what i mean. the only thing you need to know is that the little plastic threaded nut which holds the handle in place is reverse thread so if you could face the nut from inside the tank you will turn it to the right to loosen it and left to tighten. hope this helps but if you need anything else just ask:)

Hi i would like to know how to add water for the honda goldwing 1500 gl i want to know what to remove to find the place were to add water


Sit on the bike and turn the handle bars to the right. Look on the left hand side where the left handle bar was and you will see a rubber cap. Remove the left plastic cover panel around it and remove the rubber cap. It has hash marks to measure by. Ad 50/50 antifreeze till you see it half way up the hash marks. Be sure the rubber cap snaps back on tightly all the way around.If you ever need access to the radiator cap it is on the right side under that plactic cover. But you can add coolant on the left side. This is the upper level resivoir.

How do you open a bugaboo frog pram stroller


Hi,

To open the Frog, follow the steps below:

Stand behind the folded stroller, ensuring the handle is on the top of the stroller.
Bend down and place your hands on the handle bar, DONT lift the pram, make sure it stays on the floor.
Push the white button on the inside of the left hand side of the handle bar.
Pull both triggers (located inside of the handle bar) toward you and lift the handle up.
Stand up-right, and place your foot onto the bottom of the two axles which you can see in front of you (make sure that you have your foot on the axle which connects the two small swivel wheels).
Whilst you are standing, with your hands on the handle bar and your foot on the axle, push the axle out with your foot away from you and slightly upwards. This should open the chassis up-right. Please note that the chassis will appear to be unstable and move, this will stop the minute that you click on your carseat/carrycot or seat unit.
I hope this helps.

We have the same problem, remove the panel on inside tailgate and you will find the handle broken, it is made out of pot metal. You need new handle from dealer or salvage yard.

Handle over the big wheels


Hi,

To move the handle bar (either for folding or to change into the off-road mode) push the small white button in (located on the inside of the handle bar) and pull both triggers toward you (also located on the inside of the handle bar - on either side) This will enable the handle bar to move.

I hope this helps.

Espresso


the filter has a little indent that must be placed correctly, if you put the filter in the holder and then rotate the filter you will feel it click into place when it is in the right position ( there is a gap for the indent at the front of the holder)
