2004 Boogie stroller does not steer properly. Is only functional when front wheel lock is on, and is still very difficult to steer. My husband thinks it is the front wheel bearing that needs replaced. Any suggestions on where I can order parts?
I seem to have a similar problem with our 2005 Zooper Jazz. I took the front wheel apart and found that the balls in one of the three bearings where full of rust. I've have contacted Zooper, but am not getting my hopes up, as suggested.
The replacement balls should be readily available locally, but I need to figure out the exact sizing first.
Putting the front wheel back together again may be a challenge.
I had the same problem and took it back to where i bought it. THey sent it in and had the whole front wheel and corresponding parts replaced. A few weeks later the same probem occured. I just sold the stroller as is. You could try to contact Zooper directly, but don't get your hopes up, sorry.

Hi I had a similar problem with mine. I ended up just tightening the cable that connected the front wheel to the lock. (screw-like connector bolt under lock) You may want to adjust the cable as well sounds like it needs to be loosened maybe. I hope that I helped. Good luck! :)
There's a safety lock located on the right side of the frame, about 6-8" down from the handle bar. There are also 2 sliding locks, one located on either side of the stroller, on the underside of the frame. One is located just below the safety lock. First pull up on the safety lock, and while keeping the safety lock open, simultaneously slide the other 2 levers up toward you. The stroller will unlock/open and you will be able to fold it.
First of all, a heartfelt congratulations! Second, it's definitely challenging having children so close together.
The Zooper Boogie is a good stroller and it's engineered in a VERY specific way to provide baby safety and comfort. It does this by providing a slightly lower center of gravity focused on the rotating single front wheel. This makes it more maneuverable for parents and keeps baby at the center of the swivel. Attaching a second compartment on the front or back of this particular carriage would undermine the engineered balance, tremendously. At least one occupant would suffer from an extended swing when maneuvering that could be more than just uncomfortable, especially if it was extended forward over the front wheel. Some stroller companies might be willing to do this, Zooper doesn't.
The best alternative that they offer is the Tango which is engineered for two. I know that you mentioned that you wouldn't purchase a double stroller but modifying a single might be uncomfortable and possibly dangerous for your little ones. I would recommend against it.
I have just fixed my stroller which had a similar problem. The wheel was still swivelling but it was sticking slightly. I noticed that the pin that locks the wheel in place was half out and therefore the wheel was getting caught on it. I undid the nut that holds the end of the wheel lock cable in place and tightened this as tight as I could which pulls the pin back into place (making sure that the switch is in swivel position). I then put the washer and nut back on (making sure cable was as tight as possible).
