The extendable handle locks come in two versions the older wing nuts and the newer clip lever. Your problem is the bound to the clip lever version. The lock action is made by a cam on the lever pushing on an metal shim that sits over a rubber block. To fix it find a thin nail and cut off the point. Use this to tap out the metal shaft the lever pivots on. With the lever off you should see the shiny metal shim. If it's not there and only the rubber block that's your problem it slipped out. Pry out the shim (hopefully) and the rubber block. Sometimes just flipping the block over to the other side will fix the grip problem. Other wise you need to find a piece of rubber to cut a new block. If the shim is missing open the other side and use that one as a guide to cut a new one.

Loose handles on bugaboo cameleon


The handles on a Bugaboo move up and down about 1 inch / 24 mm thats normal. If they don't lock at all or only one side does thats a problem and the answers here, www1.fixya.com/support/r7805199-fix_bugaboo_handle_lock

When bumping up stairs handle bar extends, and feels loose (handle bar is very wobbley)


The Bugaboo is not the ideal stroller for bumping up and down stairs, The reason being it's core design. Most stroller handles have two or more mounting points to the frame but most strollers have baby facing forward and facing the big bad world and not Mummy. The Bugaboo is very clever, the handle can be locked ether way and the seat face either way but the handle has only one point where it attaches to the frame and that point has to rotate and lock. To give you an idea of the forces involved a crow bar the length of the Bugaboo handle can pull six inch nails out of hard wood!
Unfortunately Bugaboo have not used the best material solutions in this critical handle lock. They use a plastic disk to move aluminum locking pins and they fail if you bump down to many stairs. This happened to our Bugaboo in New Zealand. I repaired ours and now I help others by making or sourcing the better quality parts to repair them. I use aluminum for the disk and stainless steel for the pins.
If you are lucky another to have a Bugaboo less then two years old and still have proof of purchase documents Bugaboo will replace the frame for you. If it's older you can buy a new frame for around $400 but this will also increase you resale value by around $200 when you sell it. Lastly you can repair it for around $100 a side depending on parts required, Click on my name and you'll find many posts on how to repair both the Handle lock and the Handle extension lever or wing-nut. macnutz_23.jpg

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

My bugaboo keeps pulling to one side? What's wrong with it?


First check that the handle extension locks hold properly and the handle is not slipping on on side. A handle lock problem (the part that allows the handle to swing from back to front) should be obvious but check both are locking and have the same amount of play. Finally check all four wheels spin freely and the smaller front set can both rotate freely. Your Bugaboo maintenance kit came with a small can of silicon spray. Use it regularly (once every month or two) to lubricate the handle lock, brake lever and wheels. If you find a specific problem let me know and I'll try to help.

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.

The frame tilt seized on Bugaboo Cameleon


bUGABOO will send out free replacemnt buttons even if your pram is out of warranty you need to contact them. They will fix the problem but i had to put them in the oposite sides to what their instructions suggested for them to work so def a fiddly job but does fix problem.
