Need Troubleshooting Input for Motor in Mobility Scooter Pride Victory 9, Please

07/03/2016 10:57 PM

I wasn't sure where to post and this scooter IS transportation, so here goes:

I bought a used Pride Victory 9 a few days ago. Have used it several times for short rides. Went out this afternoon and rode a little longer than usual. Noticed a clicking sound coming from the back (rear wheel driven with the motor in the back, under seat). Then a humming sound joined in and I went home rather than venture farther away. Now I'm hesitant to ride it for fear of damaging the motor somehow.

Any ideas about what might cause a clicking sound? Nothing visible in the back would cause it, so it's not a twig or similar. I'm afraid it's something in the engine.

Thanks in advance for your expertise and input!

You might try the owner's club....or call for service if you can't find anything....make sure the drive lever is all the way back....

This clicking can be caused by;- 1. low tyre pressure 2. bearing failing 3. differential failing 4. loose wheel nuts (lug nuts). One of these will help you find the source, http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/like/162115297061?lpid=107&chn=ps
