The quick release axles on this chair have an adjusting nut on the outside end to adjust the length. The nut may have a disc cover on it for decoration. To adjust the axle length hold the end with the two balls on it with an adjustable crescent wrench set for the axle diameter and at the location of the balls. This way when you adjust the nut, the axle will turn until the balls contact the crescent wrench and the axle will stop turning. Turning the nut counterclockwise will lengthen the axle. All the nuts require a 3/4" wrench. Once you have made the axle longer you may need to put a washer between the hub and the axle receiver to keep the hub from rubbing.
In my experience, the hub may be rubbing because the camber tube is not even where the frame connects/clamps to it. Loosen the camber tube mounting bolts or clamps. Measure both sides and correct by marking the original camber tube position first, then adjust left to right for even spacing. Only adjust left to right do not rotate the camber tube since that will change the camber (unless you have zero camber). If you lengthen the axles this way check that the new adjustment allows the axle to lock in the camber tube. Tug on the wheel to make sure it is locked in the tube before getting in to ride. Hope this helps.

My moms explorer- when she turns hard left or right she gets a rubbing sound like from the tires bit thats not whats rubbing. it sounds like the 4x4 is engaging. she has to back up about 15-30 feet to fix...


No fuse wont help, this sounds like the 4wd is engaged, the front axle hubs need to be checked or the front axle actuator may be stuck, there are a few things that can cause this problem and if its all wheel drive that makes things harder to check out, soory theres no easy fix without having it looked at.also make sure all the tires have the proper amount of air in them 35psi is good, hope this helps.

Motors not sincorised right motor runs faster and crooked


Check to make sure nothing has wrapped around the drive tires or axles that may be causing the motors to run improperly. Make sure your drive tires are fully inflated to 45-50 PSI. If you are still having problems with the chair pulling to one side, listen as you operate your power chair for any noise or vibration. A chirping sound can indicate a bad motor, grinding or rubbing can indicate bad bearings in the casters. Motor replacement can be costly, unless your insurance can pay for it. If you got your power chair from a second party, you will most likely have to pay for any repairs COD. Contact Hoveround sooner rather than later as Tech Service calls can take some time to schedule.
Good luck!

How do you remove the rotors from a 1991 honda accord?


Loosen both front wheel lug nuts and raise car and support on jack stands. Remove wheels and have a friend hold brake pedal down and remove axle nut. Use a chisel or screwdriver to remove stake on nut to axle edge. I use a 3/4 drive set socket and remove axle nut. Rent it from Autozone. Remove caliper assy and support with coat hanger or bungee cord to hold weight of assy off of brake hose. Remove Cotter pin and nut on lower control arm. Separate with ball joint fork and pull strut assy away to the side while pulling stub axle through and out of the way. Remove 4 bolts holding rotor and hub assy. on the inside of steering knuckle and separate. Now remove 4 bolts on hub's outer side and separate rotor and hub. You can use a bar or large screwdriver between wheel studs to loosen the 4 bolts.

2001 ford focus is making noise on right side axle?


You need to jack your car up and take a look at that side of your car. Inspect the axle, looking closely at the rubber boots on the axle (these are your CV joints) make sure they're not torn if they are then you'll need to replace the axle most likely because these boots hold grease which in turn keep the CV joints lubricated, once torn the grease escapes and the joint dries out. Also remove your tire and inspect your brakes, rotors, dust shields. look for anything that might be rubbing. Another possibilty is you could have a bad hub bearing on that wheel. This is a little more difficult to diagnose unless it's severly worn. If everything else checks good on that side. Driveyour car, preferably in a large open area like a parking lot in a straight line until you hear the noise then turn left and right, not sharply but just enough to shift te weight of the car, if the sound of the noise changes it's a good possibilty you have a worn hub bearing. Hope that helps, gl.

HOW DO I REPLACE THE INNER CV JOINT BOOT ON A 2001 BUICK CENTUR


I would recommend that you replace the complete axles instead of just the boots. The boots may be busted/worn and when the get torn/busted they allow sand/dirt inside the CV joint and the bearing inside the CV joint become worn, it all depends on how long the boot has been ripped, its easier and a lot less messy to R/I new axle. For the wheel bearings they need to be pressed in by a hydraulic press. As far as the procedure goes you have to elevate the two front wheels and secure by a lift of jack stands, then take off tires and take off brakes/caliper and caliper chair along with the rotors. You have to remove center nut on axles and remove lower ball joint from knuckle assemble/ hub. Then remove bolts holding knuckle/hub to the struts. Pull knuckle from axles and the hub is out. If you don't have a press and the proper tool you can take the two hubs and the bearings to a machine shop and they will press out and pressing new bearing for you. As for the axles they both can then be pulled/pryed out of the transmission at this time and be fixed or replaced. caution look out for leaking transmission fluid when you pull axles out. The axles are only held by licking rings and can be easily pulled or pryed out. Have something ready to catch fluid. Replace axles in the reverse of taking out. use a piece of wood on the end of axle if there is need to tap it back in with a hammer, listen for a click or snap when its goes back in to transmission. Good Luck

Hub noise


You have a bad wheel bearing, when you turn away from the bad bearing the wheel bearing is un-loaded and quiets down.
