Question about Pride New Mobility Victory XL 4 Wheel Scooter
The most likely source of the noise is your front wheel bearings or the front springs for the suspension. Each front wheel has an inner and outer wheel bearing which is sealed but can develop noise over time. If you can, block up the scooter and spin the wheel in the air. If you hear noise it is either a noisy bearing or you need to remove the wheel and grease the spindle (axle) the wheel is mounted to. The wheel bearings need to be punched out and replaced with the same size bearings from the manufacturer or a bearing store.
While the scooter is off the ground check the steering linkages and spray lubricate them. Also, lubricate the springs and anything else that moves or pivots. If the steering tiller squeaks at the head tube frame (steering column) upper or lower bearings you have a more technical repair. That involves loosening the lock-nuts for the steering column dropping the lower front frame assembly to either repack with grease or replace the bearings. You would also have tor remove the upper tiller assembly and get it aligned on reassembly.
You should be able to hear and isolate the noise once you have the front end blocked up off the ground. Hope this helps.
