The first step in replacing an old wheel with a new one is obviously getting the old wheel out of the fork or back end of the scooter. Take both of your five millimetre allen keys, putting one in each of the allen key slots on the bolts of the wheel you with to remove. Firmly twist anti clockwise to loosen the bolt ensuring both the allen keys are straight and locked in right to avoid rounding off the bolts. We have used five millimetre allen keys for this how to but if you have six millimetre axels you will need to use a six millimetre allen key and thirteen milimeter spanner instead.
Once bolt is fully unscrewed remove the axel bolt. The washers/spacers and wheel should drop out at this point so be prepared to catch them.
Once you have throw away the old wheel the process of putting the new wheel in can begin. First put a little bit of lock tight into the bolt, this will help your bolts stay locked and add to your scooter remaining dialled.
Now push the bolt through the first hole on the fork or back end of the scooter and place one spacer on the end of it.
Place the brand new wheel into the gap making sure to line up the bearings inner race with the bolt . Push the bolt through the hole but not all the way, leave enough room for the second spacer of which you will need to slide in-between the wheel and edge of the deck or fork making sure it lines up with both the bolt and the hole. Now push the bolt all the way through.
Using both five millimetre allen keys tighten the bolts up making sure not to over tighten. You can ensure this had not been done by spinning the wheel after you have finished to make sure the wheel spins freely.
