I have an Aprica stroller that was designed in 1984. It is in extremely good condition for its age. The problem is I took the canopy off to was it and one of my kids lost one of the supporting arms for the canopy. the supporting arms are about 15 inch metal rods with a a rounded tip on one end. On the other is a plastic piece that allows the angle of the canopy to be adjusted. It is actually made up of two plastic discs side by side that allow the canopy angle to be adjusted to about 4 different settings. The plastic piece fits into a slot on the front of the stroller handle. The peg that fits into the slot is plastic and is about 1/2inch x 1/4 inch. I don't really care if it is the exact copy of the original canopy as long as the canopy fits the stroller and provides shade for the baby. (my granddaughter) Pat

Quinny never recommend the use of WD40 on the products. It does state on the WD40 can that it is not suitable for use with plastic products as it may cause premature degradation of the parts, and Quinny products are made with a combination of metal and plastic componants. Cleaning should always be done with warm soapy water for extreme conditions such as mud or sand removal, then the wheel thoroughly dried. For everyday cleaning, it should be done with furniture polish or dry Teflon spray (found in the laundry aisle of larger supermarkets) and a soft clean cloth to keep the wheel performing properly. Full guidelines on thorough cleaning of the front wheel unit can be seen on the Facebook page for Dorel UK Customer Services.
They are no longer serviced as i also found out the hard way. best thing to do is to look on places such as craigslist or ebay for parts or the actual stroller for real cheap. there is a compatible stroller that you might want to look for in parts and that is Fisher Price Infant to Toddler stroller (same frame and clips and shape and everything as the park avenue only it has 4 wheels instead of 3 (also no longer available or parts as the kiji company that made these in china just used the company name)
good luck finding one. Mine also broke and I called Bell to see if they have these poarts available. As the stroller is no longer in production, they have no parts available. I found a used one in a Goodwill-type store and am currently using it for spare parts.
