How to replace U-Bend Spring
- Using a Phillips screwdriver, underneath the scooter undo the single screw in the middle of the spring
- Remove the broken spring (you might need to prise this out with the end of the screwdriver)
- Place the new spring round the bracket ensuring both the prongs fit into the holes in the axle bar
- Push the ‘U' bend down so it fits snugly around the brackets (don't be afraid to use a hammer)
- Replace the screw and washer
