Before you attempt to fix your Rascal scooter, you should review the Manufacturer's warranty on the device. Rascal offers a limited warranty on its scooters, and during your first year of ownership, it will cover 100 per cent of the cost of replacement parts. If your scooter does not require major repairs, however, you may perform basic troubleshooting to identify and fix a minor problem.

  1. 1

    Use a cloth to clean the seat post and seat base. If the seat doesn't rotate freely, lubricate the seat post with petroleum jelly.

  2. 2

    Use only a Rascal-approved charger to charge the battery of your scooter. If you used a charger that isn't manufacturer-approved, you may have damaged the battery. Replace a damaged battery.

  3. 3

    Resolve brake squeals, which indicate dirt in the brake pad. Use an air pressure hose to remove dirt.

  4. 4

    Examine wear on tires. Use a tape measure to measure tire tread depth. If depth is less than 1/32-inch, Rascal advises owners to replace the tire.

  5. 5

    Examine the battery for a loose connection. The battery cables should be wired as follows: red wire of the cable to the (+) terminal of the battery; black wire of the cable to the (-) terminal of the battery.
