Hi. If the knocking noise happens with each revolution of the wheel, it is probably the square key in the axle that drives the wheel. Remoce the wheel and wipe a light smear of grease on the axle and key where it fits inside the wheel. As the wheel normally rotates, the weight comes on to the key and off again, causing the noise. The grease allows it to move without making the noise. Sometimes also caused by a stone in the tread, but most likely to be a dry key.Good luck. Neil.

Check if they are well fitted to your scooter. Most of the knockings are due to loose wheels or due to wear and tear. Probably they are worn out after long usage since some tires are not as durable as one may wish to have. If that is the case then all you need to do is to replace the tires with new ones..

Sounds like my mobility scooters electric brake is dragging

hi, Okay now get the back wheels off the ground and power the scooter , it important that you have some help now take your hand and place it on the brake with care while it moving forward with the wheels off the ground now the scraping, feel around the gearbox and where the axle connects to the wheels, you should find it worse either near the centre of the gearbox (main worm-gear drive worn or needs some lubrication) or one of the wheels (bearing worn on the axle part of the gearbox),

Health & Safely Warning: Please please take care when doing this , it 's important to understand that you don't need the scooter flat out , you must sure the scooter is secure and you will need some assistance. Take care when moving your hand around..

Axle makes a noises going forward only sounds like a bad bushing

there is no bushing on my rear wheels axle albeit an older scooter...wheel runs metal to metal on the axle and so...remove wheel and clean an grease the axle an replace the wheel.... probably wouldn't hurt to run a greasy rag back and forth through the wheel a time or two too...Sometime next week. The Maintenance Dude here @ Big Muddy River Apartments will be correcting a dry rear wheel on my old ole Golden Companion II. I had just acquired the thing and almost immediately after I sat on it to take it for a spin. The left rear wheel started acting up. Lucky my power chair guy does scooter repair too, and he told me no bearings in the back wheels. Its metal to metal and removing the wheel an greasing the axle should take care of it, and I havt'a say that was really admirable of him cause he could have clipped me for a service call and a grease job.....the end

I had a clicking noise in my back wheels. Removed wheels and greased the axles. Now the scooter will not move. There seems to be no power to the wheels.

There is a linkage spring that you might have undone when you removed the wheels. hate to tell you, but you need to remove them again and check to make sure the spring is on..... Guy

Back wheels make a loud clicking noise

Hi. Loud clicking noises from the rear wheels are usually caused by movement of the square steel key that fits into a groove on the axle inside the wheel hub. This is what drives the wheels.
You will probably get a click for each revolution of the wheels.
To fix it, remove the rear wheels and wipe a thin smear of grease on the key and axle, then replace the wheels.
The grease will allow the key to move slightly without making a noise, and help stop it from wearing.
It sometimes helps to also remove the front wheels, and wipe a thin smear of grease onto the front stub axles. There is no key in the front hubs, but the grease helps to prevent the bearings siezing on to the axles.
Good luck. Neil.

Rubbing noise rear end but not all the time

Hi.Most scooters use a steel key in each rear hub to drive the wheels. These often get noisy. As the wheel turns the weight is put on the key and then comes of as the wheel keeps turning making a noise each revolution of the wheel. To repair remove the rear wheels and wipe a thin smear of grease onto the axle and key. This will reduce the noise. Hint, loosen the bolts holding the wheel on before raising the rear end to remove the wheels. If you place a support or block of timber under the machine, be careful of the motor brush holders.
Other noises could be gearbox gears worn.
Good luck. Neil.

There is a grating feeling in the steering wheel when I turn the wheel. It was hardly noticeable at first but it is slowly getting worse. Could the road humps near where I live have knocked something loose...

Grating sounds like brakes, the brakes have shields at the front and they sometimes bend inwards contacting the brake disc, get under neath and ensure that nothing is touching the back side of the brake discs.

other thing it could be a wheel bearing on its way out although this is a constant noise like a berrrring noise.

if it is a knocking then that will be the ball joint, the other possiblity is bottom suspension arm bushes, these would cause this noise if bad enough, try pushing your foot against the front wheels facing forward with the wheels straight, if the wheel has excessive play either forward or back then thats the fault.

Hope this helps

My tacoma makes a loud roaring noise while I am driving. (Changed tires already still happens) Worse when I turn the wheels toward the passenger (right) Gets bette when I turn left. Constant while going...

have your wheel bearings checked out. sounds like a wheel bearing going bad, if you said it gets worse when turning right have your left wheel bearings checked for wear. weight transfer will put more strain on the bearings and make them louder.

Antitipping wheels dragging.

if there tires are the right pressure, sounds like the bar that holds the wheels has either come loose if possible or been bent downwards, I don't recommend you removing them.
