My dad has a pride celebrity xl scooter and keeps getting a noise similar to a rubbing noise from rear right wheel while driving, it sounds once for every rotation of the wheel, iv checked that nothing is...

The noise you are describing usually comes from the trans-axle and not from the motor/brake. Motor brake noise is usually continuous. Sounds like the trans-axle may be slightly bent on the right or rubbing internally. The easiest way to identify this is to block up the scooter and remove the rear cover. Look and listen to all the drivetrain components while the scooter is blocked up and running. If you hear rubbing at the end shaft as you describe you can try the following:
Loosen the trans-axle metal mounts that clamp the rubber sleeves over the trans-axle
Spray the rubber sleeves with silicone.
Re-torque the clamps after checking the alignment.
An overtightened or misaligned clamp can sometimes cause noise.
The brake/motor/transaxle has a prorated three year warranty so you should go through a Pride dealer for warranty repairs.
Sometimes you can get a noisy wheel on the key and key-way of the trans-axle shaft. It may be worthwhile to pull both rear wheels lubricate the shaft key-ways and keys and re-install the wheels. This can sometimes quiet a multitude of noises from the trans-axle. Depending on the age of the scooter you can do nothing, replace the brake/motor/transaxle parts individually, replace the complete assembly. I like to replace the entire assembly under warranty so there are no future problems. The rest of the repair depends on your insurance coverage or budget. Hope this helps.

When driving my golden companion it makes a loud grinding noise. it sounds as if something is rubbing together. could it be a transmission problem

The problem you are describing is generally related to the drive train of the scooter. There are 3 components of the drive train:
The brake and motor looks like one assembly with the electromagnetic disc brake and freewheel brake lever mounted on the end of the motor. The trans-axle is aluminum color and has a drive wheel attached to it on either end. The trans-axle has a differential built into it to allow the scooter to take a turn. The motor is connected to the trans-axle with a plastic coupling. The noise you are describing is from several possible sources.
Take off the seat and rear cover . Block up the scooter to run it with the rear wheels off the ground.
If the noise goes away with the wheels off the ground, you probably have a bad/noisey trans-axle. If the noise is coming from the motor or motor coupling you could have a bad motor, bad coupling, or bad trans-axle. Watch for wobbling at the ends of the transaxle shaft at both ends.
A rubbing sound like a dragging disk brake means a bad brake. Further checks involve using a volt meter which involves some technical expertise. If you have a motor problem it is best to replace the motor/brake. If the trans-axle is noisy you can replace only the trans-axle.
Keep in mind if the scooter is fairly new some manufacturers warrant the drive train for upwards of 3 years, with a 30% per year allowance for the part price per year for the warranty period. Labor charge should be about an hour and is usually excluded from the warranty.
A good ear and a watchful eye will give you most of the answers you are looking for. Hope this helps.

Install rear sway bar

a sway bar is usually u shaped and hooks to the body and the tops of the u hook to the axle with links that have bushings. most jeeps dont have a rear sway bar.the panhard bar is the rod that goes from one side of the axle to the body on the opposite side. its sometimes mistakenly called sway bar. it keeps the body from moving side to side around corners. then there are the torque bars they keep the axle from trying to rotate when accelerating.
none of this would be real expensive but if its been lifted a bunch then you may have problems

How do you remove the back wheel of a Pride Hurricane scooter

Undo the centre wheel nut and remove along with the washer, jack the rear of the scooter off the ground then slide the wheel off the axle. If it will not remove, it will need knocking off from the inside rim. Be careful not to lose the hub key (a small piece of metal that locates in a slot in the wheel and axle) as the scooter will not drive if this is missing. To remove the trye from the rim, undo the 4 bolts that hold the two wheel halves together. When refitting the wheel, be sure to apply some grease to the axle before sliding on the wheel.

I need to tighten my chain

Look at the rear axle. There should be marks on both sides indicating where the axle is in relation to the swingarm. Note the position of the axle, then loosen the axle. There MAY be chain adjusters at the back end of the swingarm, but not all bikes have those. If yours does, as you look at the swingarm from the rear of the bike you will see two adjustment bolts. Tighten those up, and make sure you keep the axle position indicators the same on both sides. Your chain should have 1-2 inches of slack as you lift and press down on the middle of the longest run of the chain. Often there is a sticker on the swingarm that tells you how much slack is acceptable, do as the sticker says if it is there.
