There should be a place to plug the charger in on the front of the joystick. It is a round three pin connector

There's not too much you can do about the gearbox leaking oil. The gearbox will usually leak at the top gasket or seals. I suppose you could try to re-torque the bolts holding the top gearbox flange, but the other seals are usually leak due to age or overheating. If you pull it apart to re-torque the bolts, you might as well replace it along with the motor and brake. The gearbox grease stains are hard if not impossible to remove from carpeting and flooring.
If the motor drags you could have a bad brake which indicates you should replace the entire assembly. If the chair veers to the right you might have one motor spinning faster than the other due to age or damage. You can go into the programming menu with a hand held programmer and adjust the steering correct to compensate for the motor difference.
The bottom line is that you are due to replace at least one brake/motor/gearbox very soon. I usually replace them as a pair since the other side will also need replacement soon.
The motor/brake/gearbox assembly will run you about $700 for each side. Labor cost will be about 1 to 1.5 hour per side.
This is an older model Jazzy which was very sturdy, reliable and popular. You should evaluate the condition of the other components when deciding how much to spend on the repair. Replacement for a comparable chair has gone up considerably and I personally don't think the motor quality is as good. Hope this helps.
