If there is no visible damage, they must then be oiled. To do this, remove all traces of grease, mud or dust with a kitchen towel or cloth, and re-oil them with a grease spray or by leaving them to soak overnight in oil [turn them several times in the oil first]. Remove reassemble the wheel bearings and axles, followed by the wheel, onto the scooter. proceed in the same manner for the other wheel.
