Rob if you can't find a air stem then you probably don't have air in the tire and it was a foamed filled tire. It doesn't happen often but the foan can break down and cause a "flat". Now look at the other wheel and see if it doesn't have a stem. The parts manual for your chair indicates a solid rubber rear tire so going flat shouldn't happen I would contact the dealer and ask for help with this one sorry I couldn't give you a precise answer. Good Luck

How do I fix a flat on rear tire

There are different procedures depending on the type of bicycle and the various brake and axle bolt configurations. This is one fix where it is best to check a youtube video.

This is a synopsis:
-move chain to smallest sprocket;
-if non-disc brake, release brake tension; otherwise tire may catch on the brake pads;
-turn bike upside down (place old towel under seat and handlebar);
-loosen/remove quick-release bolt; or use two wrenches to remove the axle nuts and bolt if so equipped;
-gently pull the wheel up. You may have to move chain around a bit. Dont forget to look at how the chain mounts on the sprocket for reassembly (take a photo if you must);
-remove tire valve cap. if tire has a presta valve (skinnier than a car tire valve), remove the nut.
-Here is tricky part: use tire levers to remove tire from the wheel. Only use plastic levers and you only need two.
-once one side of the tire is off the wheel, pull out the tube.
-air up new tube just enough to hold the circle form and start by inserting valve stem through hole in wheel and work rest of the tire around the wheel.
-here is trickiest part: use hands only to start rolling the tire over the wheel. Never use any levers for this part or you will pinch the new tube and cut a hole into it. The last ten inches or so will be the hardest part. If you 'message' tire bead into the wheel, you will get the extra millimeter or two to slip the last part of the tire over the wheel.
-once tire is on the wheel, center the valve stem if it is crooked. Then air up the tire and reassemble wheel on the bike.

Struggling to fit replacement inner tube and tyre to our quinny buzz3... Any tips?

You need a set of tire levers to begin with.. anyplace that sells bike parts/tubes tires will have these.. they are just a nicely set of angled thin yet dull levers.

Using the levers you will need to lift one edge of the tire off the rim so the tire is half way on the wheel. To simply replace the tube.. continue on to B.

To completely remove the tire off the wheel.. flip the wheel over and using the levers pry the tire the rest of the way off the wheel. working your way around.. it will be snug then suddenly free.

Replaceing the tire is the same..except you only want to put it on half way before inserting the tube..

B. Remove the air stem cap and if you have the tool to remove the needle valve from the stem.. do that too as to let ALL the air out of the flat.. then pull the bad tube out.

Put the new deflated tube inside the wheel as flat and wrinkle free as possible starting with placing the air stem through the wheel.. and working it around until well seated.. some folks will use a bit of talcum powder on the tube.. usually they come dusted to allow them to properly fit when inflated.

Once you have the tube in the wheel.. start pressing the tire bead back under the rim.. depending on the wheel.. you may want to partly inflate the tube.. just a tiny bit.. so it will not get trapped between the tire and wheel rim when you re-seat the tire.. you can usually re-seat the tire to the rim with your fingers..becareful not to pinch yourself.

Inspect the wheel to make sure no parts of the inner tube is visible.. inflate to proper psi.. put on the stem cap.. replace the wheel.

You can buy a set of tire liners that will prevent punctures.. but of course this involves doing most of the above times four.

Lastly.. if you feel you just can't get it done.. stop by a good bike shop.. they will do it for you in just a few minutes.. possibly for no charge or little charge.

Best of luck!

The rear tires on my Everest & Jennings foldable wheelchair are very low in pressure. Both tires have the words "Inflate to 55 - 65 Pounds" clearly stamped on the sidewalls. However, there...

Your tire tubes may have been replaced with urethane foam inserts - these give a comfortable ride like air-filled tires but cannot go flat - would explain why you don't see a fill valve - these inserts fit inside the regular tire carcass.
If they are worn out, you'll need to replace them, process is same as replacing a tube.

The fron tire of my Craftsman GT500 tractor is flat. how can I change it?

Hi, W/D here.
Find out why it went flat first. Air the tire up, and apply soapy water to the tire, then look for bubbles. If the tire went flat due to a puncture, you can repair it in place; Wal-Mart, and hardware stores market an inexpensive kit for repairing tubeless tires. Basically, you run a reamer into the puncture site, then fit the hole with a plug. Quick and easy. The repairs last.
If the tire is leaking around the valve stem, you can replace that in place as well. Same places sell valve stems. You deflate the tire, and install the valve stem from the inside.
If it is leaking around the rim, you can remove the valve core, and put a product called "Slime" in it to help seal it off.
If you really want to remove the tire, they are attached usually by one of two ways: 1. Bolt-on. There will be bolts in the rim of the tire. Removing these will allow the wheel to be removed, or 2. The wheel will be fitted to the axle with a bolt in the axle. Remove the center hub of the wheel, remove the cotter pin, remove the nut, then the wheel will come off.
If the repairs can be made with the wheel on, it's easier.
Best regards, --W/D--

  1. Rotate the wheel so the valve is resting just above the floor. Remove the valve cap.

  2. Unscrew the locking nut on the valve stem. Quickly press down the stem to loosen the seal. You should hear air escaping when the stem is pushed in--if you do not, loosen the nut and try again.
  3. Press the pump head onto the valve and flip the locking lever to make a seal. You'll hear air escape, but it should stop after you've locked the lever. If air continues to leak out, remove the pump head and reattach it.
  4. Make two pump strokes and listen for air moving into the tire. If the pump handle becomes hard to press down after only a few strokes, or if the pressure gauge elevates extremely quickly, remove the pump head and repeat Step 3.
  5. Inflate the tire to its recommended pressure. Remove the head by unlocking its lever and quickly pulling it off the valve stem. Secure the valve's locking nut and cap.

Replaced my tires and two of my tire pressure sensors snaped and now after driving for about 10 minutes or less the service tire pressure system keeps comming on, but when i hit the step buttom it goes...

It sounds like the problem I had - I had bought replacement valve stem caps (metal). When I went to take them off to replace the tires, they were stuck and snapped off. Apparently, the valve stems for the auto-pressure monitoring units are alloy and not stainless steel and the replacement caps reacted with them and got corroded and stuck on. Unfortunately, Jeep does not just sell the individual valve stems for these units - you have to purchase the entire pressure sensor unit for the wheel (~$200 apiece). I ended up replacing all 4 sensor units for the wheels, and will leave the plastic caps on them from now on!

Fix a front flat tire on a mongoose varial bike

The first step is to remove the wheel assembly from the bike. Once that is done insure all the air is removed from the tube by holding in the needle on the valve stem. You may have to remove the cap from your valve stem first. Next, using a flat blunt tool, pry the inside lip of the tire away from the rim and hold down the tool. Make sure you don't have the tube pinched with your tool. Next, using a second tool, repeat the first step about 6" from the first tool. This should start the tire to come off the rim on the side you are working on. You should now be able to pull out the tube and inspect for holes. Use a simple tire patch kit if you can or simply replace the tube.

To replace the tube, remove the valve stem cap and insert it from the tire side through the hole in the rim for access. Replace cap on stem to help hold valve in place. Carefully lay tube inside tire without folding it. You may have to bunch it up a bit. Start pushing tire edge back around the edge of the rim. When you get almost to the end it will get tough to if the tire is tight.Use your blunt tool to help it over the edge of the rim. Once the tire is on, make sure the valve stem is pulled up tight and straight before refilling with air. Inspect the tire to make sure it is seated on the rim all the way around on both sides. If not, release air from tube and make adjustments and refill. Replace wheel on bike and enjoy your day!
