Follow these instructions below carefully, and remember to use the right tools to keep you and your electric scooter safe.
Changing the front wheel with motor
1. Remove the two screws on the cover
Starting with the front wheel, remove the two screws found on the cover. Slightly peel off the reflective sticker to reveal the screw hidden underneath it. Use a small screwdriver that fits the screws.
2. Detach the cover and remove the screw on the wheel
Remove the cover, and use a spanner to remove the screw on the wheel. Repeat the same on the other side of the wheel.
3. Unfold the electric scooter and remove the wheel
Before removing the wheel, make sure to unfold the scooter first to make it easier to adjust the cable. Then, detach the wheel carefully while being mindful not to damage the cable.
4. Release the air in the tyre
Remove the pump cap, and use a stick to press the air out of the tyre.
5. Pull out the outer tyre
Then, use one or two small crowbar or flat screwdrivers to pull out the outer tyre.
6. Pull out the inner tube and replace it with a new one
Reach out inside the tyre and pull out the inner tube. Then, get a new inner tube, and align the charging tip of the tube to the hole in the hub. Be sure that the tip goes into the hub when you insert the new inner tube.
7. Place the wheel hub back again
Once the new inner tube is in place, insert the wheel hub back into the outer tyre. You may need to add some force to squeeze the wheel hub inside the tyre. However, be careful not to damage the wheel hub.
8. Put the fork between the washers and tighten the screw
Then, put the scooter’s fork between the two washers. Tighten the screw using a spanner, and repeat the same steps on the other side of the wheel.
9. Fold the electric scooter and put the screws and cover back again
Fold the electric scooter again to extend the cable. Finally, put the cover back, tighten the screws, and you're done!
