Bumbleride Indie 4: How to fit the textiles back on the Indie seat unit?

Babs • 08 Jun 2021

Hello I have an Indie 4 and I have taken the cover off to wash. Please can anyone tell me how to fit it back (the recliner strap) as I am unsure how to fit this back onto the stroller correctly. Many thanks

Hello, Babs,

I'm attaching a video of attaching the seat fabrics back to the frame (the system should be the same for the Bumbleride Indie 3 and 4.

There's the strap removal and reattaching shown, so you should get an idea on how it should be.

Also, here's more Indie and Indie Twin fabrics removal and re-attaching manuals. I am, however, afraid you mean how to put only the fabric around the base of the seat - and these, provided by the manufacturer, only show how to put the seat fabrics WITH the base to back to the pushchair's frame. Here, I will suggest always making a video of you removing the textiles and then re-watch it in case you don't remember how everything was. I cannot tell you exactly how to - I mean, there are different model years and differences in how, but the general principle is to put the "boards" in and the strap around the whole thing.

I will turn your attention to this article about stroller cleaning and maintenance - there are tips and tricks as well as an opinion about not really removing the fabrics until absolutely necessary (it is often very hard to put them back, and washing machine often damages the fabrics, too).

Your -very berry- Eli.

Now, this is your place to ask. I'm listening.
