Okay Guys this is a puzzle. I'm trying to remove the rear tires to check the brakes. With my fenders covering half the tire the only thing I can think of is to drop the axles. What is the unexpected trouble I'm getting into by doing that?

Don't know anything much about trikes, but thinking you probably just gotta remove the fenders then pull the wheels.
Anyone else?

There is no removing fenders this old of a trike kit its all 1 piece.tried to remove the skirts trim but that is still not enough to clear the rim from the brake hub

Can you jack it up on the frame somewhere and just let the suspension and tires drop down just like on an automobile?

Contact the manufacturer, ask them what you are doing wrong, they might have a simple solution for you!

More than likely you need to lift the body up to clear the tires, like a lot of great things not much thought given to servicing!

Not 100% sure who made it. When I first joined this forum I posted a ?? about that. The previous owner didn't know which kit it was. Most suggested it was a CSC. As I'm not sure who MFG is I know this ?? is just vague at best.

Thanks for the reply Rick.

This is how my Axle is bolted to the frame and the frame is then bolted to the body.
My other option will be to cut into fender panels 24" diameter to get the wheels out. If I ever have a flat tire that's the only way I can see to get it off.

I think I may have solved the problem. A Dremel tool and roto zip blade cut through very nice took my time made my pattern with a dry erase marker. tire comes off no problems now was able to inspect brakes need to find brake pads next.

Thanks for all the input and suggestions.Nice to know we have multiple knowledge bases to tap into when we have troubles.

Thanks Rick T.
