Mine has 1 nut and I just rang an engineer and they told me for mine (mercury m48) it should definately come off once the 1 nut is removed and if it doesnt its ageing and rust. He said what he does is turns the scooter on its side, turns the wheel hammering it until it breaks free of the rust

SOURCE: how to take off wheel mobility scooter. Is it the

The wheel should be held on by 1 nut (or maybe bolt) in the centre of the wheel so in your case it sounds like its inderneath a centre cover. The allen key studs on the outside of the wheel (probably 4 of them?) will be to split the wheel in half to change a tyre or tube. When removing the wheel, if it is a rear wheel, be carefull not to lose the hub key which is located in a slot on the axle.

SOURCE: i have a sterling 4 mobility scooter... steering

I would think this will be head bearings. These bearings usually loosen rather than tighten up but if they do tighten up the steering will indeed become stiff and probably jerky if the cups that the ball bearings roll in have become a bit notchy. Its an easy fix and should just need loosening off. The bearings are located where the steering tube on the tiller passes through the frame. Its the large nut on the top that needs loosening slightly. There is usually a locking ring that may need lossening aswell. Please be warned that access can sometimes be an issue when trying to get at the headset. If loosening the headset does not cure this problem, there are normally a couple of sealed bearings located within the axle housing (the part where the wheel attaches onto). Its unlikely though that these will be causing your problem. If they are, they will need replacing which requires part of the steering assembly to be dismanted and for safety reasons, may be better left to a dealer. You menion about having new tyres. Was the steering ok before you had these fitted or were they fitted to try and cure this problem? If its the former, it could simply be incorrect tyre type or pressure. Before attempting to correct this problem, its probably a good idea just to lift the front of the scooter off the ground and turn the steering to be sure that the bearings are at fault and not the tyres. I hope I have been some help to you.

How do i change tube on the wheel for my pride prusuit 36 sport? I have it removed and screws in the center of wheel out


Deflate the tyre completely by removing the tyre valve only then undo the nuts on the outer bolts take the two halves of the wheel apart remove the old inner tube noting carefully how the valve was placed through the wheel. Check the wheel interior and rims for rough or rusty patches, clean it up fit the new (empty) inner tube making sure that nothing is pinched reassemble the wheel halves together and be sure to fully tighten all nuts before fitting a new inner tube valve and you are ready to inflate the wheel. Do this in stages and gently bounce the wheel to settle the tube and rims then continue inflating continue a bit beyond the recommended tyre pressure and then release the air to the optimum pressure.

idea. If you have uniform wheels, consider buying a 5th wheel as a spare and fit it to the tow bar/ accessory attachment point behind your seat. I've done this on my venerable Pride Celebrity XL8.

How do i repair a puncture on my mobility scooter


Depends on the model...... Most models have a split rim design .....
1 x Large Nut for attaching the wheel to the axle
4 x smaller nuts that hold the 2 sides of the wheel rim together.

Remove the wheel - Deflate tyre (if not already) - Remove the 4 split rim nuts - use a blunt instrument to gently tease the tyre off each rim to expose inner tube - Repair tube and reverse the process... Hope this helps .... Dave

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!

Flat tire, S500


The wheel will have to be removed firstly.
Then with something blunt, (like a spoon handle, not too flexible, and smooth,)
carefully pry up the bead of the tyre over the rim of the wheel, now it's easier to take a second lever or spoon handle, and repeat the process, a couple of inches away from the first.
Then you should easily be able to run the smooth lever, around the tyre and rim, to expose the tube.
Then push the valve through the wheel, if neccesary, and remove the tube.
You should also inspect the inside of the tyre, thoroughly, to make sure that there isn't anything in there that shouldn't be.
After you are sure all is well, just reverse the procedure.
Just make sure that the tube does not get 'pinched' between the tyre and wheel.
Hope that helps.
