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.
Helpful hint: To remove the glide wheel bolt and replace the glide wheel or glide wheel casings, use a star bit size T45 (or comparable-sized Allen wrench hex key). These are typically available at your local hardware store.
