Installing Shank Bolts


You will have originally been provided with an Allen Key / Screwdriver tool that will be needed for this repair.

Other Screwdrivers and Allen Keys of the correct size will also work.

Step 1

Place your 3Style Scooter® on a table or similar surface upside-down, this will allow you to have easy access to the bottom of the front of the scooter / steering column

Step 2

Remove the two bolts located at the top going through the metal plate.

Step 3

Then remove the small screws which also go through the bottom of the metal plate.

Step 4

Remove the metal plate.

Step 5

Remove the plastic guard.

Step 6

Pull the wheel axial off from the base and put this to one side.

Step 7

There are two small screws located on the base either side of the spring recess. Remove these two small screws.

Step 8

Pull on the coloured plastic to separate this from the black base.

Step 9

Always replace both the smaller screw of the bolt and the main part of the bolt. This is because there might be some damage to the thread of either part. To remove the larger part of the bolt pull up on the top part of the base and push the bolt out.

Step 10

Once both bolts have been removed discard the old bolts and then put in place the new bolts.

Step 11

When the new bolts have been put into place, push down on the top part of the base making sure the screw recess lines up with the holes on the bottom part of the base.

Step 12

Screw the 2 small screws back into place either side of the spring recess.

Step 13

Put the wheel axial back onto the scooter. Position this first onto the bolts and push the spring into the recess on the base of the scooter.

Step 14

Put back the plastic guard back into place.

Step 15

Put the metal plate back on the scooter and secure this into place with the two smaller ends of the shank bolts and finally the two smaller screws.
