Before you start taking apart your baby stroller, you should make sure to check for punctures in the tires adjacent to the wheel you are removing. First, remove the hub cap. Then, take off the wheel, ensuring that your hands are clean. Once the wheel is off, you can replace it with a new one.

Remove hub cap from stroller wheel

Unscrewing the hub cap on baby stroller wheels is a tricky task. You can’t just pry it off with a flat head screwdriver. You need a special tool to remove the hubcap with a wide tip. You can also use two wide-tipped screwdrivers to spread the pressure on the hubcap.

First, you need to find the axle of the stroller. The axle is the long protruding axle in the center of the wheel hub. This is usually located in the rear chassis tube. Once you find the axle, press the inner “release” button and then pull the plug upward. You can also swivel the bar or housing to adjust its position.

Replace wheel

A baby stroller wheel is an integral part of a baby stroller. A damaged or missing wheel will render the stroller useless. A broken wheel can also make outings more uncomfortable for you and your child. You can purchase replacement wheels from the stroller manufacturer or consult your manual to find out which parts are available.

Firstly, disengage the brake by leaning the stroller backwards until the rear wheels touch the ground. Then, use your body weight to point the front wheels upward. Sometimes, you may need to lock the front wheels in the forward position by pushing a secondary retention button, which can be located near the quick-release lever. Once you have done this, you can proceed to replace the wheel. Make sure you follow the procedure properly so that the new wheel is secured properly.

You can also purchase a new tire. A new tire will cost about $80. While this is not a big amount of money, you’ll want to spend a few dollars more than the original price if you want to replace your stroller wheel. If you’re not prepared to spend that much, you can opt for a cheaper option.

If you can’t find a wheel from the manufacturer, you can check classifieds for broken parts. Many parents sell their prams for parts when they are done using them. You can either buy the broken part or use it yourself if you’re confident enough. You can also shop on eBay for discontinued stroller models.
