The front wheels of my Quinny are stiff and often get stuck sideways so that I cannot move forwards. I have been oiling some areas but with no immediate effect. Any suggestions what else to check or how to fix this problem.
Remove the total front housing by pressing the 2 plastic buttons on the silver bar that holds the wheels in place. then get a small screwdriver and put in in the small hole on the black plastic part of the wheel there is a button in there but you will need to look in the hole to find it then push button with screwdriver and pull off the 2 wheels. clean and use wd40 not oil. this should fix problem if not phone dorel (they sell/own quinny) in the UK 00442082360707

Stick the front wheels in a bucket of hot soapy water first. Take out of bucket turn the wheels and dip back in. Repeat till wheels turn freely. Allow to air dry than spray with lubricant. I prefer silicon sprays over oil based ones like WD40.
hi if you look just above where the black part of the wheel joins the frame you will find 2 black dots on the frame itself push the into the frame and pull the wheel out these can be stiff but it will come out
take both the wheels off give all parts a rubb down in wheel area then try again if it persists lubricate the inside of the wheels as the breaks are pin type and settle into a groove to stop pram migh be getting stuck x hope this helps x
First remove the front wheel assembly from the pushchair by pressing in the two buttons on the sides and pulling it out.
Now look more closely at the assembly - on one side, just where it bends at an angle you will find a small hole, a couple of millimetres across. Take a small screwdriver or some other thin object and push it into the hole a little way, which presses a metal catch inwards, releasing the swivel assembly. While continuing to push this in pull the swivel assembly apart - grasp the wheels in one hand and the L-shaped plastic housing in the other and pull them apart.
Now clean all the surfaces with a piece of strong cloth.
When all the surfaces are very clean, take a can of TEFLON SPRAY and spray it onto all surfaces that rub against each other, before reassembling the wheel unit. Silicon grease is a cheaper alternative, but the teflon spray is supposed to be the best for lubricating all moving parts on the Buzz. Whatever you do, don't use WD40.
Hi, you can download the manual from the quinny website, but as a quick guide, the best I found was - first stand with your foot against the front wheel (so it doesnt move forward) then press the grey buttons on either side of the chassis and at the same time draw the frame downwards towards your foot, please remember you can only fold down with the seat in place if the seat is facing forward (ie baby facing outwards) it wont fold down with the seat facing mum, there are also demos on you tube, hope ive helped and not been too complicated :)
