the wheel is from a bugaboo cameleon which are well known for picking up every bit of dirt and hair. you will probably need tools of some kind. this has clogged up in the wheel, possibly bent the axel and causes the pram to veer off to the right when pushing. I just want the axel removed. I can buy a new one but want to know the axel will come out first.

I'll be able to have a look tomorrow morning does that suit you?

I'm not fussed by the waiting period, we've been sliding off the footpath for a while now! I can wait a little longer. I know absolutely nothing about wheels but was told to pull off the pop rivets on the small wheels, which I did... I pulled one axel off and cleaned out the gunk and put it back together fine but the other got stuck half way and I can't budge it in or out now. It is only $65 to buy a new one - so don't want to waste money 'trying' to fix if you think it can't be fixed. Cheers!
I can have a look at this on monday for you, i know there is 2 different types of Cameleon. 1 has a clip, the other a butterfly nut, both differ in ability to remove and repair axle. FYI getting parts in AUS is very hard. There will be a waiting period. let me know how you would like to proceed
