Question about Hauck Malibu Carriage Stroller

1 Answer

My Malibu has started to have problems with the front wheels as they rub on the chassis when walking causing the buggy to stop. It seems that the plastic parts the wheels click onto are far too mobile as when I push the wheels they touch the chassis. It's happening with both wheels. Is this a design fault or does the chassis just need tightening?

When in 'swivel' mode front wheel turns wildly making it difficult to control and even stops the buggy when the wheel 'stick' at right angles to the buggy


In normal use, the front wheel needs to swivel freely - then this stroller's drive is easy and manageable with one hand (we know from extensive use with 2 kids and shopping on board).

The front wheel normally can not collide with the car. If the wheel assembly / lock is not correctly inserted, it can lock / unlock uncontrolled: try to disengage and mount the front wheel unit again.

Unsufficient tire pressure can also detoriate the drive.

Can you fit a buggy board to a quinny zapp xtra?


Hi

We would not recommend it.

The Zapp Xtra is a lightweight, short wheel base chassis and the addition of a buggy board may make it unstable and likely to tip. In addition please remember the maximum weight limit for the Zapp Xtra and do not exceed this with the combined weight of the 2 children. If you choose to use a buggy board Quinny do not accept responsibility for the performance of the Zapp Xtra or any damage done to the chassis caused by the buggy board.

Hi...my husband tried to fold our quinny buzz 3 with the seat still locked into position. He didn't remove the seat first and I don't know how he even managed to fold it with the seat still...


This is not an issue you can repair yourselves, the chassis must come to our engineers for inspection and repair work required. If you are a UK customer call 01284 413 141 Mon-Fri 8.30-4.30 to book it in for this. Standard charge is 72GBP and includes courier collection and delivery.

I am a grandmother left with the lovely grandchild and an in-line Phil & Teds buggy that I have no idea how to open. It's a black one if that helps identify the model.


Hi,

If you have the Sport or Explorer model, then if you stand the folded chassis upright, so that the handle is touching/near the floor, and front wheel facing away from you, on the right hand side (the joint where the chassis folds) there is a light grey button which you press in, then pull the front wheel outward and lift the handle bar up, this should get the chassis open. Ensure that the chassis makes an auible 'click' when opened, that way you know it's up properly.

Hope this helps.

How can i take off the front tire on stroller?cant take off the front tire. Its a graco brand.


Hi, Graco strollers all vary. Some wheels can and cannot be removed. Quickest thing to check is the undercarriage of the wheel. Front wheel ----------------- Place your buggy in front of you Then push it onto it's rear wheels The front wheels should now be up in the air Check underneath where the wheel attaches itself to the chassis Some wheels just have a simple lever you push and the wheel releases Others there's a round rod with a **** running through the middle similar to a peg if you have a pair of long nose pliers you can squeeze them together and pull the wheel towards you Others just cannot be removed peg just won't release itself or the wheel is bolted onto the chassis I hope this information proves useful.

hi we had the same problem with our p&t sports buggy, brand new out of the box the front wheel kept locking, driving me mad! we contacted our supplier, kiddicare.com, who were extremely helpful and sent out a "front wheel swivel/fixed catch (screw fixing)" - it has WORKED WONDERS! the buggy is now smooth and easy to handle. you have to remove the old catch pin which can be a bit of a fiddle (when we got the old pin out it was a rivet fixing and very rusty) but only took us 10 minutes. highly recommended if you can get hold of one of these new screw fix pins, which have obviously been brought out to fix a common fault which p&t can't be bothered to recall lots of buggies and fix themselves...... ;)"

I've made contact with the store I've bought my e3 from, now, waiting to hear from them about this 'fix screw'. hopefully it'll solve our probs!
Good luck

Phil & Ted's Vibe very stiff front wheel


Hi
I am onto my third Phil and Teds Vibe due to issues with the front wheel. It never ever worked smoothly from the moment it was assembled. The first time the UK distributors Outnabout replaced the pin - no help. The next time they replaced the entire no buggy. The new buggy is exactly the same - stiff front wheel that is back breaking to turn and squeaks loudly. Interestingly, I am waiting for Outnabout to send some lubricant that Phil and Teds have recommended; despite being told by the retailer in no uncertain terms NOT to use lubricant. I plan to return the third and final buggy and ask for a full refund or partial refund and replacement with a Sports buggy model. The wheel mechanism is different on that one. Good luck. As you can see, I am all out of answers.

Urban Jungle: push very heavy, squeaks


Alex,
You may try removing the wheels, cleaning all dirt and debris from the axel and the wheel, coating both the axel and inside of the wheel with silicone spray. If the axel is badly pitted from the dirt rubbing against it, you can use some emery cloth to smooth it back out before putting the wheel back on.
