Ekornes Stressless Replacement Glide Wheel Casing- Bring smooth reclining action back to your older Stressless Recliner!

Choose the quantity of glide wheel casings that you need:

Quantity of 1- Single for left or right side of chair.
Quantity of 2- For both left and right side of chair.
Quantity of 4- To replace both the left and right sides of 2 chairs

Did you know that Ekornes changed the glide wheels and casings around the year 2000 (sometime between 2000-2002)? So Stressless chairs produced at this time or before will not be compatible with this Glide Wheel Casing. Unfortunately, we are unable to provide replacements for those casings. We have however, heard from customers that the glide wheel casings from earlier models can often be found "used" from local directory listing or auction sites.

We have found that a broken glide wheel casing is typically the cause of a Stressless recliner that will no longer recline back and forth effortlessly. You will need your existing glide wheel, washer and long bolt (which attaches the wheel to the actual Stressless seat). Please use the existing parts from your Stressless chair. If you no longer have those parts, please order the complete Ekornes Stressless Glide Wheel here.

Remember that Ekornes changed the glide wheels between 2000- 2002, so Stressless chairs produced at this time or before will not be compatible.

    Glide wheel casing

    Published by Derek on 23rd Jun 2020

    I have restored a number of the Stressless Ekornes chairs. I often find the plastic inner pieces to these glide casings are broken off, preventing any gripping when the knobs are tightened down. I’m really glad to be able and find these here and for a reasonable price. Thank you!
