Cotter pins to hold rear wheels in place--Emergency !!

I just purchsed this stroller with code no. 01134GLX. I'm a Grandma with 3 grandchildren visiting for a week. I had to buy a stroller quickly. I've followed seemingly easy directions for putting this together--but it's impossible for me to re-insert the cotter pins that hold each rear wheel in place. I need to use the stroller NOW! Any suggestions. I don't know how much I can dare try to pry the pin apart for insertion and then try to squeeze it closed again--??

    Really? If I could slide/drive [how do you drive them] into the axle, I would not have had to ask for help. I took stroller back to Target store with my own pliers and received excellent help on the spot. But the interim, and going there without a stroller--all very nerve-wracking. This was difficult to say the lease--perhaps you can find an easier and better way to have your customers install the rear wheels.

    I still have no idea how you 'drive' an object called a cotter pin into anything so much larger and solid. Unfortunately, person at Target took the stroller and my pliers away with her and returned quickly with the wheels on and the cotter pins in place. I didn't see how she inserted them, but indicated someone else did it while she held the axle of the stroller. I still think an easier way for older, less physically strong, customers such as grandmas and grandpas, should be created so all will benefit. Thanks for being available.
    Over and out.

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.

How do you adjust the rear wheel bearing?

Rear wheel bearings on front wheel drive vans are much like front wheel bearings before front wheel drive.
You have an inner and outer bearing with a nut and lock washer.
After the bearings are packed with grease, you tighten down the axle nut until snug then back it off a notch. Then put the lock washer or lock ring on. Some have a cotter pin to hold the nut in place.
The wheel should spin with no drag from the bearings.

How do I get the rear spindle off so I can replace the emergency brake shoes on my 2006 chrysler pacifica?


  1. Place parking brake lever in -full released- position.
  2. Raise and support vehicle.
  3. Remove plug in parking brake shoe support to access adjuster star-wheel.
  4. Through the access hole, rotate the adjuster star wheel in the following direction to expand the shoes outward against the drum:
    1. Left brake - Rotate star-wheel toward rear of vehicle.
    2. Right brake - Rotate star-wheel toward front of vehicle.
  5. Using an appropriate tool, turn adjuster star wheel until wheel will not rotate (dead lock).
  6. Back off adjuster six detents (teeth).
  7. Rotate wheel, checking for light drag. If drag is too heavy, continue to back off adjuster one detent at a time until light drag is present. Do not back off star-wheel more than 17 detents from wheel lock.
  8. Install access plug.
  9. Adjust opposite wheel parking brake shoes using same method.
  10. Lower vehicle.
  11. Apply and release parking brake lever once to ensure proper operation of parking brakes.

Removal & Installation NOTE The following procedure may be used to remove shoes on either side of the vehicle.

  1. Lock out automatic adjuster in parking brake lever.
  2. Raise and support vehicle.
  3. Access and remove rear hub and bearing.
  4. Remove parking brake cable bolt at knuckle.

Packing the wheel bearings on a 98 for Taurus

Just remove the wheel/tire, then remove the dust cap, remove the cotter pin and then remove the nut that holds the brake drum/hub assembly onto the spindle. Then remove the grease seal on the backside of the hub and remove the bearing. Wipe them off, inspect them for discoloration and flaking of the rollers, if good then just pack new grease into the bearings and re-install the bearing into the hub and install a new grease seal, then place the hub/drum back on the spindle and install the outer bearing and the nut, tighten to spec and install the outer nut cotter pin keeper thingy. bend the cotter pin and cut off the excess so the dust cap will fit on and tap it into place. Re-install wheel/tire and torque lugs to spec.

Could you tell me what the pins are called that hold the wheel on and where i could buy them from?

Pins? I don't know your model but most stroller prams use Capped Starlocks if its a pin with a looped top and spits in two at the bottom it's a cotter or split pin. any hardware can help with those. Any thing else is a custom part and a problem.

Are motorcyles usually this cantankerous? Now the chain came off. I put it back on, but need to know how to take out the slack so it can be driven safely to town (30 miles) to get a new rear tire.

Loosen the bolt on the rear axle after removing the cotter pin holding the bolt in place. Adjust the chain tension by rotating the adjuster cams on the left and right side of the wheel. See diagram below. Set the two adjusters evenly to keep the wheel inline on the swingarm. Retighten the axle nut and put the cotter pin back in place. Have the parts department look at the rear sprocket. Chances are the sprocket is worn out also. If it is, the front sprocket will be worn out also. Worn out sprockets will cause your new chain to wear out quickly. Please rate my answer. Thanks.


Rear wheel removal

1. Stand the bike on the side stand

On the left side of the rear wheel:

2. Remove the 2 froward facing bolts.
3. Remove the allen head bolt with the wide head.

On the right side of the rear wheel:

4. Remove the brake adjuster nut on the end of the actuating lever.
5. Remove the Toque link nut at the bottom of the wheel assembly.
6. Remove the axle nut (castle nut and cotter pin).

7. Place the motorcycle jack under the swing arm or chassis tubes to stabilize the rear end.
8. Remove the axle.
9. Remove the axle from the splined drive gear and place the wheel assembly on the ground.
10. Pull the wheel assembly rearward.

Reverse the process to replace the wheel.

Have you tried a bicycle repair shop. They often help with my buggy wheel problems

Rear break drums

The rear brake drums are retained onto the spindle assembly with a cotter pin which locks a nut in place.Remove the cotter pin,and spin the nut off,then remove the washer behind the nut,and the brake drum assembly slides off.You must catch the outter wheel bearing as the assembly is sliding off.When reinstalling,the bearings need to be set with just about .001" of free play.Reinstalling TOO tight will burn up the bearings.
