    Is it a single axle for both wheels? I have a Schwinn 3 speed but it seems to have the drive axle and an independent assembly (left) or is the shaft broken?

You will need to remove the two bolts and nuts/washers that hold the wheel axel in place. After that you can pull the wheel off the frame with a little force. See the image below where two bolts that hold axel on both side are.
How do I remove the - alpug_42.jpg

The bolts are square near the end and will go into a square hole or cut out in the bikeframe. Putting these bolts on is a bit difficult at first, but once you have done it, its basically easy.

For the rear wheels, the right side axel is shaped like a "D" (not round) and will only take the corresponding wheel with the "D" axel area. The other rear wheel has only the special bearings for its axel and no "D" area.

I checked on Amazon, but they are out of stock. Try eBay or your local Schwinn dealer.

Unable to remove wheels and replace with new ones. Need instruction booklet

cathjh7 what type of chair do you have? Are you talking about the drive wheels on the motors? Usually there is a bolt or nut in the center of ech wheel. On some chairs there is a lock washer with a bent tab keeping the bolt from getting loose. This tab must be bent down flat before you can remove the bolt. Once you have the bolt or nut removed pull up on the wheel and it should come off the axle. Now for the bad news---- if the wheels have not been removed in a long time and you have ridden through water or in wet grass the hub can get rusted to the axle and they are very difficult if not impossible to get off. I have had to use a tierod tool to get them off and I have had to replace the entire motor because I couldn't get the wheel off the axle. It might be best to see the provider you got the chair from for help with this problem. Hope this helps you

Rear Wheel Bearing

1. Remove the wheel knuckle.

Wheel Knuckle

CAUTION: Do not loosen the axle wheel hub retainer until the wheel and tire are removed from the vehicle. Wheel bearing damage will occur if the wheel bearing is unloaded with the weight of the vehicle applied.

NOTE: Have an assistant press the brake pedal to keep the axle from turning.

2. Remove the nut and washer and discard the nut.

5. Remove the nut and bolt and separate the upper ball joint from the wheel knuckle and discard the nut.

CAUTION: Do not use a hammer to separate the outboard CV joint from the hub. Damage to the threads and internal CV joint components may result.

The timing may be off due to a bent or broken flywheel key. See if you can remove the flywheel and look at the keyway. To remove the flywheel: take a nut with the same size threads as the one that holds the flywheel on. Thread it on but not so far as to let the shaft come through. With your weak hand, lift the flywheel with a little upward pressure. With the strong hand, tap the nut with a wooden mallot if you have one. If you dont, use a hammer. Tap the nut and the flywheel will come off. You may have to tap it sharply. Once you have done that, remove the nut and save it for another day. You will be able to see if that is the problem. Good luck...Lee

Need to replace steering arm on pass side on 1998

Your description leads me to believe that the spindle is bent. This is the piece that the tie rod attaches to near the wheel. Sometimes the tie rod is attached to a piece that attaches to the spindle which is rather intuitive. Just remove the tie rod end, unbolt the arm that attaches to the spindle and replace the arm. In this case the only special tool you'll need is a tie rod seperator.

If the arm is a part of the spindle and cannot be removed easily:

1) Put vehicle in park and safety brake on - chock the rear wheels
2) Lift passenger side front wheel and put on jack stands
3) Remove wheel and have a friend apply brake pressure
4) Loosen hub nut with appropriate socket (22 to 35mm)
You can purchase the socket from your local auto parts store
You'll need a large breaker bar, its torqued to about 100ft-lbs
5) Remove tie rod end with a tie rod/ball joint separator
This can also be purchased at your local auto parts store.
Some spindles are made with tie rod end permanantly attached
If it is removable, remove nut and drive the separator tool
between the tie rod and spindle using a large hammer.
It'll eventually break free from the spindle.
6) Remove the strut with a strut spring compressor tool
This can be purchased at your local auto parts store.
Compress spring before removing lower bolts (2 of them).
The strut may be left on vehicle but the spring must be
7) Remove caliper and break assembly
Loosen the two slide bolts that go through the caliper assembly
Remove caliper and breaks - let it hang by the tubing
8) Detach upper and lower ball joints with seperator tool as in #5
9) Finally remove the hub nut from #4
The spindle should slide off the axle
10) Repair or replace the spindle and put it all back together in
reverse order using new wheel bearings. Pack them with axle
grease if theyr'e not the sealed type.

NOTE: The tie rod end may need to be replaced also. The vehicle will need a front end allignment. Be sure to torque the hub nut to the manufacturers specifications - at least 75ft-lbs. You should probably replace the wheel bearings.
