I need a little help from my friends

I've put it in the mechanic thingy because it is a bit mechanickle.

To give me something to really get stuck into I have started and nearly finished dismantling the Sterling four electricchair
Scooter.

You will see how far I have got, but I cannot figure out how to separate the two parts, I've undone all the seeable bits, am able to push the back down with the crash bar, but I cannot see what I need to do next not even on the diagrams that go with it. As it is about 25 years old I can´t find one on the internet to show me.
I have found this video, but I can´t make it work like this.

I´ll have to get Gordon the mechanic to look, he must be able to fathom it out.

With the batteries out of it turn it over, there does appear to be a natural joint of the front and back in your pic, the fixing bolts may be on the base.

You´re joking, it will take 2 men to lift it I couldn´t possibly turn it over Terry, its a tank.
I´ve already tried standing on my head to look underneath, nuffink.

Just a thought but have you tried ringing Cambridge Mobility, from the sticker on it I'd think it was them that supplied it, they do have a web site https://www.cambridgemobility.co.uk/ phone number is 0044 1223 830 084 .

The one shown on the video appears to be a slightly different model to yours, as it has the two batteries in a single carrier and then the cover over the catch for the foldable link.
From the pictures of yours there seems to be two levers from behind where the batteries are, try pushing them up or down and maybe they will do the same as the single in the video.

Your very observant young man, I can´t even see a sticker, oh yes I can, on the steering column. Yes that is where it came from, I´ll try them and get back to you "as they say"

I have called them, no reply just a message machine, I left my phone number and email address explaining the problem, hopefully they will get back to me next week.
Good thinking bat man, John

Milly, you say you can push the back down with the crash bar, so I assume you mean the back end containing the motor is hingeing in relation to the main part of the scooter.

If you are, that suggests you have unlocked it. I think what you need to do is, while you are pushing the rear down, grab the seat post and pull that upwards at the same time and the 2 parts should separate. Easier if the wheels are free to turn.

If the 2 parts are not hingeing, there will probably be a latch behind the seat post that you can hook your fingers under. Pull it up and pull up on the seat post.

I assume you have the motor disengaged from the wheels as you would never be able to move the scooter otherwise.

I will follow your instructions in the morning pardner, but I may not be successful being the weakling that I am, its buddy heavy.
