Re: how to put platform flat by front wheel when putting...
My jane powertwin buggy got damaged during a long flight to south africa. There is no guarantee on it. I would like to know how I can replace one of the seat belt clips as well as fix the left hand break pin. Thanks
Re: how to put platform flat by front wheel when putting...
There is a winged nut behind the platform. It is very fiddly to reach and you need to undo it almost fully to move the platform and even then it only moves a little. Is best if you can manage without adjusting this regularly.

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.
Hi, apply the brake.
Go round to front of buggy.
Hold the 2 large grey buttons on side of frame.
1 pushes down 1 pushes forwards do this & pull buggy down towards you, this will fold it as long as the brake is on.
To fold the buggy, it is necessary to operate both a primary lock, and then a secondary lock. Start by making sure that the front swivel wheel is locked. Operate the primary locking device by pulling upwards on both of the plastic tabs located on the side of the handle arm just below the foam handle grip. Begin pressing downwards so that the pushchair begins to fold. Next, release the secondary locking device (raising the bar located lower down on the left-hand side) and continuing pressing downwards on the handle bar until the pushchair is fully folded. The handle bar can then be folded inwards to the maximum, by pressing simultaneously on the adjuster buttons on either side. Finally, with the chassis laid down, lock it into its folded position by closing the folding latch operated on the side.

I hope that this is helpful. Do leave some feedback, so that we know how you got on!
When folding the Vibe some important things to remember are that the handlebar must be in the most upright position (perpendicular to the ground), nothing can be below the rear axle level (ie. lift the basket up above this) and the front single wheel should have the side with the attachment bar on the outside.
The fold locks will not engage if everything is not in the correct position. If everything is in the correct position the fold locks will easily engage/disengage. If everything is NOT in the correct position the fold locks will not engage and should not be forced.
Put handle bar in upright position.
Undo the side lock clips. Then you lift the red lever on the side to start the fold. Fold so that the pram front wheel and handle come together.
As the pram folds ensure basket is above rear axle and the front wheel has the attachment bar on the outside.
When the pram is fully folded you can fold the side lock clips back in place.
First you need to make sure that the handle bar is in the top most position.
Next the Front wheel needs to be turned sideways as you begin to lower/fold the buggy.
You must also watch the basket part so that it folds up and in so that it doesn't get stuck.
I usually will also fold it forward and down so that I know the wheel and basket are in the right position. When it is finally down it should clip into place.
Hope that helps a little. :)
I will try to explain this best I can without actually having it in front of me. First off, start on one side or the other, doesnt matter which, take the top of your foot and pull up on the metal supports on the bottom of the back side of teh seat. You want to pull up in the center, under where the plastic "step" looking piece is. repeat this on the other side. Then you will push down on the littel lever that sticks out of the right side of the buggy. This releases the lock. Usually, you will then have to pull up again with your foot in the same place as before and push the handles of the stroller forward. The buggy should collapse. You may try some 3-in-1 oil, silicone spray or Pledge furniture pilish on the lever and "joints" to make it fold a little more smoothly.
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 :)
There are four plastic ends at each corner of the fabric seat unit, these need to be released, if you partly fold the buggy the tension on the fabric is eased allowing these four plastic tabs to be pulled out of their location.
When you have releasd these fold the buggy almost in half, and start to pull the fabric out of the slotted rails, you must try to do this evenly i.e. pull the back part out beyond the handles and the seat part out beyond the front wheel, it will seem tough at first but as you work all the sides evenly it will come out quite easily honest!
Fitting is just the reverse making sure the the sides of the fabric are locating properly.
Patience is the best policy.
Hope this helps.
