Be careful! Only remove the wheel's central nut, NOT the outer ring of nuts yet. Remove the tyre valve slowly and with care to empty the inner tube. Remove the wheel by tapping the rear of the wheel as necessary - be careful to remove the axle key and keep it safely to one side. Remove the remaining wheel nuts split the wheel and remove the tube from the tyre and wheel. Check the wheel inner surfaces for rough spots and clean. Insert the new tube and making sure that nothing is pinched reassemble the wheel inflate the tyre to the recommended pressure in stages gently bounce the wheel once or twice to help the tyre to seat properly. Inflate to just above the recommended pressure and release surplus air. Offer the wheel up to the axle with the wheel and axle key slots exactly opposite each other. Insert the "key" in the slot and gently hammer it home.

Voila, you have done it!

I need to remove tire?


You will need Socket wrenches, a big ***** Driver and air valve tool if there is a pneumatic tire involved, two 3"-5/16" bolts w/nuts and washers. I like to tip the chair on its side. and loosen the main shaft nut and remove it. Then wiggle the tire back and forth, then lift. If you are lucky it will slide right off. then you can let the air out of your inner tube or go straight to removing the split rim bolts. the ***** driver is used between the rim and tire and pry apart the tire from the rim, work around the the rim until the tire is off on both sides, If this is a foam filled tire then you will need 2 5/16" Bolts w/ nuts and washers replace the tire and line up the hole for the bolts and push the rims together so the long bolts can make it long enough to put the nut on. the nut down a little then put another one on opposite side to pull the wheel in tighten the bolts a little on each side evenly until the original bolts are able to be used to tighten then take out long bolts and install all the rest of the shorter bolts. tighten them up and grease the shaft and put the shaft key in the slot and gently put the wheel on and tighten the shaft nut. Check to see the wheel turns with the shaft. the key can slide out some times Then tip the chair up and see how it drives. Sorry no pictures yet.

Pursuit XL scooter, rubbing sound during right turns...


My first guess is that you have either loose lug nuts(5)on one or more of the wheels, or you have loose screws(6)that hold the wheel rims together as these have split rims. This is more common on scooters with flat-free tires as the tire and the foam insert will chafe against each other and produce a rhythmic sound as the wheel rotates. Try tightening all of the lug nuts first and see if that helps. If it persists, try removing the tire by removing the 5 lug nuts and pulling it off the axle. You'll see six bolts that hold the rim halves together. Re-tighten all of these and install the wheel to see if that cleared the noise. Note: The real wheels have a key-slot in the axle and a key which slides into this slot to hold the tire to the axle. Be careful not to lose the key when you slide the wheel off, and be sure to get the key back in the slot when you install it back on the hub. Here is the page for your scooter. Click on the owners manual and scroll down to page 37 for info on tire removal.

How do you get the rubber tire off the rim?


Get the rim / tire of the frame. Let all the air out of the tube, Using two flat blade screw drivers, put them between the rim and tire about 3 inches apart, (be careful not to puncture the tube) Pry the tire over the rim, leave one in place and move the other about 3 more inches and pry the tire over the rim again, keep moving around the rim until the side is off. Reach in and pull the tube out, fish the stem through the hole. Finish pulling the tire off the rim, you can use liquid soap to help make things easy. Put the rim back together the same way. Hope this helps Fix Ya up.

Have a flat tire on a Chauffeur Scooter rear wheel.


I just removed the right rear wheel from my Chaffeur scooter. I first removed seat, plastic cover and batteries. Then removed wheel center bolt, set scooter on it\'s side and used a short 2x4 and rubber mallet to drive the wheel off. A shot of penetration oil helped. It is an extremely tight fit.Can\'t figure the two piece rim out though. Anyone have suggestions on why it is a two piece and how to remove tire from rim?

The front drive train is wobbleing, i've tightened the nuts for my driver side tire and it appears that it was not the problem. In more detail, when the car gets up to 45 mph it starts to shake in the fwd...


Jack up the front and spin each of the front tires by hand, look at them from the front. I'm sure either you have a bad tire or a bent rim.
Bad tire- only the tread will move up/down or side to side.
Bent rim- the rim will move up/down with the tire.

How to change the flat tire? Can not remove tire off the rim. How i get the nuts off?


You're not supposed to remove the tire from the rim like with the bicycle. You take the tire nut wrench, jack and the spare tire from the trunk, loosen the nuts, lift the car up with the jack, take off the nuts and the tire, replace the tire with the spare, skrew back the nuts, lower the car down, tighten the nuts, pack everything back in the trunk, drive to the tire fix shop, get the tire fixed, change it back, keep the spare ready for another punkture.

Clicking, first noticed on carpeted surfaces. Sounds like it is coming from rear end. Scooter has been used outdoors mostly over some rough terrain. No leaks visable. Was recently purchased used from a...


Clicking from the tires is usally due to one of two things. First, check to see that the nuts holding the wheel onto the axle are tight by removing the plastic cover and tightening them as hard as you can. Drive and see if it quit clicking. If not, check the air in the tires; they should be kept at the stated range on the tire. If they are foam-filled, flat-free tires, these can often click when the tire chages against the wheel. It doesn't affect the safety of the scooter but can be annoying. Spraying some WD-40 around the rims inside and out will often clear it up. If not, you'll need to pull the tire and tighten the 4 bolts that hold the split-rims together.

Click and clunk when moving from right rear wheel Pride Elite +


This can be caused by two things usually. One cause is the bolt holding wheel to the axle is a little loose so check to make sure it is very tight on the axle. The second click comes from flat-free tires. The tires have an adhesive applied at the factory and if you hit a bump, or if there's not enough to hold the tire tight to the rim, the tire will make a grinding click noise when it rolls and passes over this area. Pneumatic tires properly inflated don't make this noise since the air pressure keeps the tire fixed to the rim at the bead; flat free tires lack this pressure. Simply lubricate the area around the tire where it meets the rim on inside and outside, and drive it...noise should dissipate.
