One of the best places my be a Automovtive supply stores , you may also try a Home improvement store, they tend to carry "odd" Bolts, to remove the broken bolt you may have to drill it out with a special drill tip also avaliable at most of the Home Improvent stores,, make sure you take your broken piece with you if you still have it so you can get a perfect match.

The drive wheel has a locking tab washer under the bolt which holds the wheel assembly on the end of the drive shaft. Step one is to bend the tab (or tabs) away from the side of the bolt. Put a socket on the bolt to remove it. Make note of the washer and lock tab orientation because there is another tab on the inside which locks into the motor shaft keyway. Spray lube into the shaft and keyway to free up the wheel and remove. A wheel puller is sometimes helpful here. When replacing the parts use Loctite on the bolt and tighten. The final step is to bend a lock tab up against the bolt head to keep it from backing out. The hard part of this whole process is removing the wheel assembly from the motor shaft. It may have seized on to the shaft. Place anti-seize or grease on the shaft after cleaning and before reassembly. invacare com
The Pronto M51 has two batteries in the base. The seat has to be removed to change the batteries. The M51 has had several methods of removing the seat from the base. The oldest models have a long bolt that holds the seat to a center post that sticks up from the base between the batteries. The next version has a spring loaded red handle just under the right side of the seat. If you have one of these designs you must lift the seat straight up off the center post. If not lifting straight up the seat will not come off.
The last style has the seat frame bolted to the base frame in 4 positions. Only one bolt at each corner post needs to be removed.
The easiest way to do this is to remove the crossbar bolt and put the brackets in aligning them on the vertical frames. When everything is together put the crossbar bolt back in with your third hand or a helper's hand. Hope this helps.
If you tightened the Arm Angle Adjustment bolt as shown on page 28 of your Owner's Manual (under the arm rest near the pivot point) by using your supplied 1/4" hex wrench, but it does not want to stay in place, the threads on the bolt may have become stripped with age and wear and needs to be replaced. You can also try applying a substance like Lock-Tite to the threads to see if that will keep them in place. If not, the armrest may need to be replaced, approx $118 plus labor to install.
Red You don't need to remove the bolt. If u lift the handle under the right side of the seat the seat should turn. Turn the seat a little and pull up on the seat at the same time. the seat should come out of the seat post. Also try twisting the seat as you pull up on it. If it doesn't want to come out after all that then u need to spray some WD40 or other type of oil to get the seat out of the post. They are sometimes very hard to get out cause the post wasn't greased and moisture can cause it to rust. Hope this helps you n GOOD LUCK
Norm, the wheel is held on the axle by the center bolt. The 4 bolts that rattle hold the rim together (it is a split rim to remove the tire easier) these bolts should not be loose. Remove the center bolt and slide the tire off the axle (make sure the keyway stays on the axle or in the hub) tighten the 4 bolts and reinstall on your axle this should fix your problem. Hope this helps
Loosen the bolt that attaches the bracket to the arm rest. Remove the clips the hold the cord to the frame. Gently move the controller and cord to the opposite side, being careful not to tug the cord out from under the base of the seat. Insert the bracket into the opposite arm rest and tighten the bolt securely. Fasten the cord to the frame securely so that is does not drag on the ground, but not too tight that the armrest cannot be raised up. You should be good to go!
I assume you are referring to the caster tire, not the drive tire. You will need to check to see if the rim is a split-rim or a solid rim. A split-rim will have 4 or more bolts holding the two halves of the rim together. If you have flat-free tires i.e., foam-filled solid tires, evidenced by the lack of a valve stem which is used to inflate non-flat-free tires (pneumatic), you would remove the wheel from the caster by rermoving the center bolt acting as the axle. Then remove the bolts holding the rims together. Reposition tire on top of one of the rim halves, then place the other rim half on top so that the bolt holes in the top one line up with the holes in the bottom one. You need to buy a couple of bolts that are about 3/4 in or more longer than the bolts that you removed, as you now must press the two halves back together and the stock bolts probably won't reach through. Put the two longer bolts in opposite of each other in two holes and tighten down. When the rims are pressed together, then put the stock bolts in, remove the two longer ones and replace with stock bolts. Place wheel back on the caster. If you have pneumatic tires (requiring air), make sure to always deflate the tire completely before attempting to loosen the bolts holding the rim-halves together. The same process is used for drive tire replacement. If the rims are not split rims, then it is easiest to buy an entire new wheel and tire as getting it back on is quite a chore requiring a press and lots of tequila! It's easy to break the rims. Good luck.
