Can I tighten the steering on a mobility scooter?

Hello Frank Archer,

That is more of a factor of the size
(and number) of the wheels...

I have been over the owners manuals on a couple of the scooters... It is ALWAYS a good idea to hold on tight on rough ground.

Do check out the trouble shooting section of your owners manual... better to be safe than have the wheels come off.

My Buddy scooter feels like the steering is too loose.What can I do ?

Please have this fixed before you venture out again, as the worn parts can actually fail, causing you to loose all steering.
Have someone raise it up in the air and examine all the steering linkage, you should find either a loose part, or a few, or perhaps some loose bolts.
God bless your efforts.

How do I correct a vary bad wobble in the tiller of a shop rider cobra scooter ?

Dear Charles,
I am so glad you asked.
You are just about to lose all steering on your scooter.
There are one or more screws that hold the steering assembly together and in place.
One of more of these screws has come loose or maybe is lost, and is just about to let go all together.
Please have someone look at it and see if it can be tightened or if a part or parts have failed and must be replaced.
God bless your efforts.

I'm trying to take some of the sloppyness out of the steering column, but as I don't have a manual, I'm reluctant to start taking bits off!

Joan and John,

This is typically not a do-it-yourself repair. The reason is that there are many parts to the steering column including upper and lower bearings and races, steering linkages, a front console wiring harness, and many other small parts. These parts must be assembled in sequence and aligned properly otherwise the scooter will not steer straight and will have noise and sloppiness in the column. You could also damage the wiring harness that goes through this area.
With that being said there ARE some adjustments that can be made to the tiller and steering column to improve its performance.
The tiller angle adjustment knob should be as tight as you can make it by hand.
If you place a block of wood under the front of the scooter you can check for free play with the front wheels off the ground. The tiller should move left and right without binding or noise. The top cup of the bearing race has some lock nuts that you can use as adjusters. Loosen the lock nuts and turn the top race clockwise until the sloppiness is gone and there is some resistance. Re-tighten the lock nuts making sure the column is centered. You don't want to over tighten the bearing races. The tie rods and ball joints are not a DIY adjustment or replacement.
If you need replacement of the top and bottom bearings find a local scooter mechanic or bike shop to do it for you.
If you have serious steering problems do not drive the scooter until it is repaired.
Hope this helps

I have a sterling 4 mobility scooter... steering is stiff and jerky...just put new tyres on... help please.....

I would think this will be head bearings. These bearings usually loosen rather than tighten up but if they do tighten up the steering will indeed become stiff and probably jerky if the cups that the ball bearings roll in have become a bit notchy. Its an easy fix and should just need loosening off. The bearings are located where the steering tube on the tiller passes through the frame. Its the large nut on the top that needs loosening slightly. There is usually a locking ring that may need lossening aswell. Please be warned that access can sometimes be an issue when trying to get at the headset. If loosening the headset does not cure this problem, there are normally a couple of sealed bearings located within the axle housing (the part where the wheel attaches onto). Its unlikely though that these will be causing your problem. If they are, they will need replacing which requires part of the steering assembly to be dismanted and for safety reasons, may be better left to a dealer. You menion about having new tyres. Was the steering ok before you had these fitted or were they fitted to try and cure this problem? If its the former, it could simply be incorrect tyre type or pressure. Before attempting to correct this problem, its probably a good idea just to lift the front of the scooter off the ground and turn the steering to be sure that the bearings are at fault and not the tyres. I hope I have been some help to you.

Rally 4. The steering seems to be stiff or tight.


ok now carefull tip the scooter onto one side, look at where the steering column attachs to the main frame, it's here you should find a bearing type collar, now you need to losen this and lubricate with a light gears, best to use a waterproof gease then tighting the collar up but
not too much otherwise your steering will again become tight.
