    The screw which holds the bracket where the latch is to telescope the handlebar is gone and a spring fell out when I went to slide the handlebar. I need to know where the spring needs to go inside the arm and how to put it back together. The stroller isn't under warranty. The user guide doesn't cover these kinds of issues. Thanks.

The above describes the availability of the Cameleon chassis for $299.95.

It also says that the warranty is 2 years, but there is a lifetime return policy.

From the above page you can chat online with a representative from the Bugaboo company, and there's a number 1-800-460-2922 that you can call for more information.

    I would try to replace the screw that holds the bracket with another one matched up from a home improvement place like Lowe's or Home Depot or Ace Hardware that would have a large selection of screws and a sizer for diameter and threads to replace the screw.



    Are there any other parts missing besides the screw?

  • audsemail123 Aug 05, 2010

    Thanks Duane,
    Not as far as I know. I think the biggest question is spring placement, it just launched out of there so I have no idea where it's supposed to go. Thoughts?

    Are there 2 springs, one on each side to aid in adjusting the handlebar? If so, use one side as a model for other side, I guess.

  • Duane Wong

    Do you have dimensions for the spring?

    Since the knowledge you are asking for is specialized to this item, I would call their 1-800 number or chat online with the representative from Bugaboo.com and pick their brains on it. They may have a solution that doesn't cost as much as replacing the whole frame for $300.00.



  • audsemail123 Aug 05, 2010

    It's about 1.5 in long and the circumference of a pencil. I just put it back in there and I think I'm making it more complicated than it needs to be. I don't think the spring attaches to anything - it just sits in there so once I have a new screw it should be fine. I hope. Thanks for your help!

Hi,

It would be best to take it too a place where you can by an assortment of springs like a hardware shop.
They can give you the right size and diameter spring. They would also have the screws there that you or they can size up too fit it best.

This should fix it.

Let me know how you get on, or if you need more information.

Thanks

Jason

Hello,kindly follow the instructions below,

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

wish you good luck,

take care.

    It's not the brake which broke, it's the lever just above the brake which allows for the handlebar to slide up and down.

Im trying to fit a new break cable to my bugaboo cameleon


They are a tricky thing to fit. First fit top cable this involves taking the two screws out and having the lever, spring and lock button all pop out. Cable is easy to fit now but a bit fiddly putting back together. Make sure cable stays in its groove around the lever base. Now fit bottom end of cable to the brake shoe. It is easier to do if you take the bolt holding the spring off first. You'll see the slot in the shoe for the cable you have to fit the cable almost 180 degrees from it's usual position then turn back to usual position. Now fit spring back , pull cable adjuster up past the bracket that holds and then slip cable though slot. Finally clip rest of cable to its frame clips than adjust.

1989 s10 blazer the door handle broke off we went threw the window to unlock the door. We lost the small spring that unlatches the door from the frame. I got the door finally open with a screw driver....


the interior trim will come off to gain access to the lost part. Get a telescopic magnet which will retreive this part. If it is the striker the latch hits and keeps the door safley shut That is what I think your refering to. The striker bolts to the B pillar which keeps the door shut. Also the striker should cost no more than $15 to 20 $$ to replace. Maybe less

Amana AFI2538AEW bottom freezer door handle is loose?


My dad's freezer handle is loose, model ABB2224DEW. Went to partselect.com and located drawing of freezer door parts. Found a link to a "do-it-yourselfer" that describes removal and replacement of the handle. Hopefully this helps.

Replacement of freezer door handle.
1. Removed freezer door handle. First I read the freezer door handle removal instructions in the Amana refrigerator user guide. Removing the handle requires inserting a plastic card at least 1.5 inches under the left end of the right side of the handle so it releases the butterfly clip latch on the freezer door. Next I pulled the right side of the handle to lift it away from the freezer door. Then still holding the handle away from the door, at the spot that is 1.5 inches from the inside of the right side of the handle, I held the plastic card vertically and slid one corner of it between the handle and the freezer door and worked the card down until it released the butterfly clip latch. Keeping the card at the same space under the handle so the latch was released, I then turned the card to the left until it was horizontal and was lifting the left end of the right door handle away from the freezer door. I then slid the handle across the card to the left until it cleared both door butterfly clip latches and it lifted off the door.
2. Installed freezer door handle. First I read the freezer door handle installation instructions in the Amana refrigerator user guide. The handle is curved on one edge and must be installed the curved side down. Correctly installed, the outside ends of the handle curve upward and the handle curve is down so it looks like a frowning mouth. Next holding the handle curved edge down, I turned it up so I could see the brackets and held it against the door. I lined up the handle brackets slightly to the left of the butterfly clips on the freezer door. Next I turned the handle with the brackets against the freezer door and slid it slightly to the right until the left side of the handle held onto the door butterfly clip by itself but was not latched. Then I lined up the right handle bracket with the right freezer door butterfly clip and carefully slid the whole handle to the right until I heard the left butterfly clip latch click. Next I slid the handle back slightly left once more and then slid it back to the right until I heard the right butterfly clip latch click.


Parts Used: HANDLE, DOOR (WHT) Level of difficulty: Difficult Time to do repair: 30 - 60 mins

Common problem on 2001 Ford Explores. The reason why your door handle doesn't unlock the door(can't be unlocked by remote either)is due to a broken spring located on the backside of the door handel INSIDE the door. True that your one(or two) of your small exterior springs on your door handle are broken(will cause your handle to flap) but this IS NOT YOUR PROBLEM. The door locks will work if there is a bit of tension holding the handle bracket up. I know it's hard to explain without pics. but here's the ONLY WAY TO FIX THIS. It's not that hard.......... Remove the door panel, only a few screws and a few more holding trim around exit handle then, pull out "snap in" clips on bottom. With a flashlight you'll see back side of door handle. To get to that area you'll have to remove one bolt holding a window frame. Do that(with window in up position) then slide down rail, out of your way. Now, get back to handle. With your light aimed at the backside of handle left slowly the door handle as normal, and you'll realize(while looking at the mechanism) that tension(pulling down of bracket) needs to occur in order for locks(manual and remote)to work properly. Trust me.....you'll figure it out. Once you do, get a spring(pen spring, 30 cent hardware store spring, any small spring!) and hook one end to bracket and the other end to ANYTHING(OUT OF THE WAY) below the door handle thus, causing SLIGHT tension. Try your locks...THEY WILL WORK! YEAH! Replace that one window frame bolt(try your window...just the make sure), replace door panel and your done. TOTAL COST: 30 cents or FREE(if you have a small spring) Ford dealers will charge $150 to $285! Yikes!

HIYA.... YOUR BEST BET IS... TAKE THE HANDLE BAR BACK OFF AGAIN. TAKE THE SPRING OUT OF THE SIDE THAT WORKS FINE AND TAKE IT TO YOUR LOCAL DIY STORE AND GET A REPLACEMENT, IF YOU CANT FIND IT ASK SOMEONE IM SURE SOMEONE WILL BE ABLE TO SEND YOU IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION... PROVIDING ITS JUST THE SPRING, IF YOU BUY ANOTHER TO REPLACE THE BROKEN/LOST 1

THIS SHOULD SOLVE THE PROBLEM :)
