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

The Bugaboo canopy uses a clever two stage hub. A spring keeps the sections together in a twin set of wavy indents. As you pull the canopy out the first arch move to the next indentation 60 degrees than the second arch moves it's next indentation. If you have the fabric set to far back over the back and a arch can't reach it's next indentation it will jump back to it's first position. Check the arches can reach the indentations. If the spring breaks inside a hub is not repairable but is available as a part.www.babycare.nl/bugaboo-canopy-clamp-cameleon-2pc-p-2467.html
TO FOLD STROLLER • Close the canopy as described in the canopy section. Recline seat by releasing buckle as described in seatback positioning section. • The stroller is folded by simultaneously pulling each trigger fold. . When the fold latches are released, the handle will begin to fall toward the floor. Release the fold buttons and press downward on the stroller handle until the stroller is completely folded. Secure the stroller in the folded position by hooking the fold latch, located on the right side of the stroller, over the rivet that protrudes from the frame. CANOPY * The canopy features a ratchet system that allows the canopy to be moved forward to block the sun or wind. To adjust the canopy’s position, push forward or backward on the canopy until the canopy is in the desired position. See figure 23. SEATBACK POSITIONING * The seat has a multiple position recline that is controlled by a strap and buckle assembly behind the seat. . To recline the seat, loosen the strap through the buckle and adjust to the required recline position. To place the seat back in the upright position, press upward on the seat back with one hand while pulling the strap through the buckle with the other. The strap will lock automatically. http://www.babytrend.com/download/2007061021349109CT_instructions.pdf
The canopy should just push onto the seat frame, they do need a bit of pushing though. its easier if you get the connector half on and then just push, will hear a popping sound. it took me a while to figure it out on mine and the instructions aren't the best.
what I would do is try to find a way to completely detach it bars and all. they hand wash the whole thing...bars and all in the bath tub or something. This is what I did with my eddie bauer tandom stroller (worked like a charm)
