Maintenance questions from Lynn Ellen
Question: The black rubber foot pedal covers on both sides are now about to have a serious truncation, as in they have been bent by having close encounters with doorways and soon they will just bend/pop off. Has anyone posted about these items? I am wanting in general to give the Scoot a serious cosmetic tune-up as well, as one of the velcro straps that holds the batteries in place is threatening to break off, I could use a renewal of the velcro that holds the maroon triangle in place, and dirt has moved into some of the nooks and crannies. What do you and others suggest?
Answer: My scoot is about the same age as yours (3 1/2 years). My black rubber foot pedals are still in good shape, but I imagine you could order replacements by calling TravelScoot.

I also have a velcro strap on the battery that's starting to come loose, and while I haven't yet replaced it, I would think you could buy velcro from a fabric store and replace the strap yourself. I have taken my triangle off and washed it with soap and water in the sink and it looked like new afterwards. My velcro is in good shape, so I haven't looked at replacing it.
I hope others have suggestions for you, or can tell us about their successful cosmetic renovations.
