Step 2:
Remove the fender above the wheel.The fender is held with 4 screws.

Loosen the screws found at the top of the gold arms. This helps us create space in removing the wheel. (Note: Do not remove the screws, just loosen it)

Replace the inner/outer tube and reinstall the rim. Make sure that the air nozzle is inserted through the hole on the rim.

Step 9:
To install the motor, find the divot on the motor and make sure to line the nozzle up with that divot. Reinstall the screws and tighten them down.

Step 10: Put the inner pins back. Make sure that the tongue on the pin is facing away from the scooter and is hanging on the bottom of the scooter. Do it on the other side

Step 11: Lift the wheel up and into the arms.

Step 12: Place the outer pins back. Make sure that the tongue is up and latching into that hook in the arm.
