How to fold mia moda 3 wheeler

Step 1

Inspect the stroller's wheels and handle to identify the type of brake mechanism it has. If the device is equipped with wheel-mounted brake levers and swivel locks, use the toe of your shoe to activate these mechanisms. If your stroller is equipped with a handle-mounted brake lever, push down on the lever to engage the brakes. Some models also come equipped with a secondary-locking mechanism located on one of the rear crossbars; use the toe of your shoe to activate this feature.
Step 2

Lift the handle or press the tab securing the backrest in place, located on the upper edge of the backrest or on the crossbars securing the rear of the backrest to the frame. Grip the edges of the footrest, then lower the component by pushing it into the desired position. Pull back the stroller's canopy.
Step 3

Grip the stroller's handle and lift the device upward; if the stroller comes equipped with a safety button, press the button as you lift. Use the toe of your shoe to push on the stroller's hinges until the frame begins to fold.
Step 4

Pull the halves of the stroller's frame together until you have completely folded the device; if the stroller comes equipped with a locking latch, engage the latch to keep the halves from sliding apart.

The brakes and handle on my bugaboo doesnt work the handle does stay still it slides down when im holding it and the brakes work when they want to

Problem 1/ The handle extension lever is held in by the pin it pivots on, cut the tip of a smaller size nail and use it to tap out the pin. There should be a rubber block and a matching steel shim under the lever. The lever pushes on the shim and the shim on to the rubber block jamming it against the handle. The steel shim is the usual problem. it slips out. Open the other side and use that shim to get a copy cut. A piece cut out of a tin can could work.
Problem 2/ This may sound strange but the best thing to do with the Bugaboo brake system is to lubricate it with silicon spray. Both the lever and the cable. The bugaboo does not use friction to brake with but the engagement of teeth. Ratchet teeth in the lever and brake shoe teeth into the wheel hub teeth at the wheels. Lubrication won't effect braking but wear on those teeth will!

The piece that you pull down to put the brakes on broke off, what can i do

Bugaboo don't sell parts for the frame only the complete frame. The frame would be around $400 in the US but would increase the resale value of your buggy by at least $300 as you'll have the latest red handle brake lever and levers instead of wing nuts on the handle extention. Your old frame would be worth around $50 on eBay to a buyer who has a brake lever but another kind of fault on their frame. Go to to order as new frame.

I have a bugaboo wlth the white colour brake and have just found out that the white colour ones are out of date. my question is does anybody know if i can get it changed over to the red one and how much...

Bugaboo don't sell parts as such but they sell the chassis. It will coat you around a third of the price of a new Bugaboo. The new Red brake lever chassis has the lever extension handle locks instead of the wing-nuts and rocker style buttons for the handle release. Your old frame will be quite sort after on eBay. I like the rocker handle release and the extension levers are quick to use and look better but I must warn you the old wing-nut system held the handle better and if you bump down a lot of stairs the new lever system is more prone to slipping, macnutz_16.jpg

The brake is locked on full, how do i take the brake off?

You have too much tension on the cable. When you press the brake button the lever has to move sightly forward to disengage the ratchet teeth. Try pushing the lever on a bit more as you press the button. If that doesn't work check the cable adjuster at the end of the cable, if it can be wound down a bit that would help. If this all fails take out the two screws holding the break lever to the handle. It's a very simple mechanism of a lever, release button and spring. The ratchet teeth are on the outer edge of the button and the inside surface of the handle. Once working give the whole brake system a good coat of silicon spray. Lubricant won't effect the toothed brake system of a Bugaboo but wear on the teeth does!

The lock on the brakes of my bugaboo cameleon doesn't work.

I just repaired my Bugaboo Chameleon brake. If the white brake lever doesn't "lock" i.e stays in its forward position, locking the brake you need to disassemble the brake handle housing. Open the black plastic cover by unscrewing the two screws. The handle should come off with a little tweaking. Remove the brake wire. The "button" where you are supposed to release the brake is actually a sort of cogwheel that stops the lever from springing back. Sometimes the cogwheel gets too pushed in the handle. You can tell if it has done so by observing the 8 small grooves that are out of place. Simply take a small flat object like a flat screwdriver and pry the button out. It should pop out as it is spring loaded. Now put it back in its position but TURN IT so it fit in the grooves. Put it back in the black handle, by reversing the disassembly process. Easy!

I had the same problem. They may have forced the brake handle down rather than using the release button on the side. If this is the case, it may be easily fixed.

You need to unscrew the two screws at the side of the brake handle. The black plastic cover should then come off. If you push the release button, the brake handle component should then come away from the stroller bar. Take note of where the brake cable end sits on the component.

You should notice that half the inside cob wheel have segregated teeth and that should fit into their respective gaps. You may notice that some of the teeth are not aligned. ie some of the teeth are in the section that have no gaps. The problem is that the inside cob is stuck. You will need to use a small headed screwdriver to tease the inside component out.

Do this slowly and be careful to not lose the sping that is inside. Once you have the teased it out, replace the spring and cob back but in the appropriate position (aligning the teeth).

Replace the whole component back on the stroller ensuring that the brake cable end is correctly positioned on the component. This may be a little harder with the spring working properly.

Hopefully this should correct the problem!

Brake does not engage

the brake disengages using the button. if it is forced the mechanism slips. its fairly straightforward to take it apart with a screwdriver. clean the plastic parts, put it back together right and screw it back on. then all you need to do is show granny how to work it (again) to prevent it happening again.
