If you’re on the verge of a nervous breakdown, losing your temper, or having an aneurysm, we hope these tips will greatly help you, and the phrase “it is impossible to unbolt the front wheel” will be forgotten.
Our tips on how to disassemble the front wheel of a Xiaomi M365 electric scooter
Here are the different tools we use in the tips below:
18mm open-end wrench
2.5mm Allen wrench
TIP 1: Remove the cover
Use a 2.5mm Allen wrench to unscrew the 4 small screws that hold the plastic cover of the front fork. This will allow you to slide your 18mm open-end wrench between the cover and the fork. By doing this, your tool will cover the entire surface of the nut, providing a better grip.
TIP 2: The magic of WD40
Use WD40 to loosen the nut that is tightened with thread locker. Apply a generous amount of WD40 and let it sit for a few minutes. Then, apply a few more drops and wait for another two minutes before unscrewing the front wheel of your Xiaomi scooter.
TIP 3: Utilize your body weight
Maximize your strength by positioning your open-end wrench in front of the wheel so that you can press down on it with the full weight of your body. This will be much easier than trying to unscrew the nut while pulling your open-end wrench upward.
TIP 4: Leverage
Harness the power of leverage – this technique is unbeatable! Insert your wrench onto the “stuck” nut of the front wheel. Then, place a long, rigid tube over your wrench and press down on the entire setup. You’ll be amazed at how much it amplifies your strength.
BEAR THIS IN MIND
Don’t tinker with disposable, low-quality tools. Invest in good-quality equipment that will last a lifetime. It will save you from numerous issues in all your repairs, and you’ll be happy to own and use them.
