How do I replace the wheels on my Tobago trolley?

 

Our trolleys are designed for a long lifespan. Nevertheless, wheels can become worn out by intensive use. When that happens, it’s time to change the tyres – just like a tyre change for your car. We’ll show you how to change the trolley wheels for the the Tobago, Fortuna and Tecorail series (all sizes) in just a few steps.

Tools and Replacement Parts Needed

Flat-blade screwdriver, Phillips screwdriver, tongs and new wheel set (please see FAQ “how do I order spare parts).
