    When you take it off, all you do is remove the bolt. Your wheel is stuck but it is not bolted on. You need to take a rubber hammer and hit it off. Be careful to not hit it to hard but it will come off. The bolt is the only thing that has to be taken off.

How do I change back tire on a Toa Toa 50 cc scooter?


A single bolt with a cotter pin holds the rear wheel on the axle, covered with a plastic dust cap. Remove the cap, Remove the pin, then use a pry bar to hold the wheel in place while you undo the axle nut. Once removed, tap the end of the axle with a rubber mallet or use a piece of wood and a hammer until the wheel comes loose. Remove, use motorcycle tire tools to remove tire, replace tire, and remount wheel. Use a new cotter pin.

I have a flat tire on my scooter which i would like to fix but unable to get the rim apart can you help me


Yes. Be careful! Only remove the wheel's central nut, NOT the outer ring of nuts yet. Remove the tyre valve slowly and with care to empty the inner tube. Remove the wheel by tapping the rear of the wheel as necessary - be careful to remove the axle key and keep it safely to one side. Remove the remaining wheel nuts split the wheel and remove the tube from the tyre and wheel. Check the wheel inner surfaces for rough spots and clean. Insert the new tube and making sure that nothing is pinched reassemble the wheel inflate the tyre to the recommended pressure in stages gently bounce the wheel once or twice to help the tyre to seat properly. Inflate to just above the recommended pressure and release surplus air. Offer the wheel up to the axle with the wheel and axle key slots exactly opposite each other. Insert the "key" in the slot and gently hammer it home.

Voila, you have done it!

Pursuit XL scooter, rubbing sound during right turns...


My first guess is that you have either loose lug nuts(5)on one or more of the wheels, or you have loose screws(6)that hold the wheel rims together as these have split rims. This is more common on scooters with flat-free tires as the tire and the foam insert will chafe against each other and produce a rhythmic sound as the wheel rotates. Try tightening all of the lug nuts first and see if that helps. If it persists, try removing the tire by removing the 5 lug nuts and pulling it off the axle. You'll see six bolts that hold the rim halves together. Re-tighten all of these and install the wheel to see if that cleared the noise. Note: The real wheels have a key-slot in the axle and a key which slides into this slot to hold the tire to the axle. Be careful not to lose the key when you slide the wheel off, and be sure to get the key back in the slot when you install it back on the hub. Here is the page for your scooter. Click on the owners manual and scroll down to page 37 for info on tire removal.

When changing the front tire does the center nut need to be removed along with the lug nuts? if so, how?


Only the four wheel lug nuts need to be removed to get the rim and tire off the car. That large center nut holds in the front axle shaft.

Clicking, first noticed on carpeted surfaces. Sounds like it is coming from rear end. Scooter has been used outdoors mostly over some rough terrain. No leaks visable. Was recently purchased used from a...


Clicking from the tires is usally due to one of two things. First, check to see that the nuts holding the wheel onto the axle are tight by removing the plastic cover and tightening them as hard as you can. Drive and see if it quit clicking. If not, check the air in the tires; they should be kept at the stated range on the tire. If they are foam-filled, flat-free tires, these can often click when the tire chages against the wheel. It doesn't affect the safety of the scooter but can be annoying. Spraying some WD-40 around the rims inside and out will often clear it up. If not, you'll need to pull the tire and tighten the 4 bolts that hold the split-rims together.

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.
