OPEN THE BATTERY CASE ON A RASCAL 320 TO REPLACE OLD BATTERIES
Remove the battery pack from the chair and turn it over. Make sure you do this on a flat surface. I usually put a towel or rag under it. Turn it upside down. You will have to use a Phillips screwdriver to remove the 8 screws on the bottom. Once they are all loose you will have to turn the battery case back over. The 8 screws should fall out. This is the reason for the towel so they don't bounce or roll away. At this point you can lift off the top to remove the batteries. Each battery had a sensor taped to the side. You need to remember their placement and then remove. Then you can remove the connectors from the batteries. You just reverse this procedure to install the new batteries.

SOURCE: I HAVE A RASCAL MOBILITY
I do not know of a Scooter graveyard, but I will look for one. I found a site that sells many different types of 24volt battery chargers. If you have a special port on the scooter and you still have your old charger you can cut off the end of the bad charger and wire it onto a new battery charger. Now as with most lead/acid battery's any charger with a built in volt/amp regulator will work.Your old charger spect's are for a 4amp max rating, Any constant 2.5amp or better should recharge your battery's overnight. I am sending you a link to a site called Battery Stuff.com where you can find a 24volt charger for as low as $89.oo, Now I understand this may be a bit out of your range, but a new battery charger for a laptop computer will run about $115.oo. So for a Heavy Duty scooter that is not to bad. Plus it may out last 2 sets of battery's. Now use this site as a reference and maybe you can find one you like local. Hope this helps Fixya up.

There is an overload protection switch in it. It will look like the the protection switch that can be seen under the mixes. The picture of the overload protector is added here. Its press button will only seen outside. Just putsh it once and check. The motor has carbon brushes inside it to get armeture contact. If these burshes are worn out, the motor won't turn, and the scooter won't move. There will be two of them in opposite directions. They are replacable parts. The picture of it is also given here. Check these first. If you need anymore assistance from me, feel free to get me by FixYa.
