Is this normal in a Bee?

I bought a Bee second hand six months ago. I've always had issues unfolding it and wondered if that's something wrong with mine, or if it's what Bees are like. Planning to sell it on in a few months, so if it's faulty I guess I should declare it as such unlike the nice person who sold it to me

When I pull it up into an unfolded position, it quite often doesn't click into position on one side - you have to give it a really good yank to make sure it clicks into place. Also, I find it really hard to take off and put on the seat unit - it's really stiff and fiddly to do.

Are these faults?

Sounds like mine and I've had it since new and it's always been like that. I'd say it's just the way they are and not faults.

I had one for a bit and had exactly the same issues, so agree it is probably just the way they are.

Yep sounds like mine! Especially getting the seat unit on and off, total pain. Not a fault just not ideal design...

Mine is like this so I guess it's normal. It's not the easiest to switch the seat round either, a bit stiff.

Mine was a little stiff so I WD40'd the joints and it's much better!

Oh the seat removal is a PAIN! those horrid pinchy bits? also the little things to adjust the straps, broke many a nail on mine!

I love love my Bee, still use it for my two year old. However I can't click the seat in and out, have to get DH to do it. Hadn't thought of wd40! It folds up and down and clicks into place with no trouble though.
