Thought I'd post this in case others have been annoyed with a sticking foot rest.
I've battled this for 4 years now, lube'ing the crap out of all the scissor joints during every trip. Sometimes with some success, other times (like this last trip), with no success at all!
Our departure routine has been wife and dog get in seat, she presses footrest up button, while I help raise it.
Got under there today, tools in hand, to loosen up the joints that have bolt's and nut's, to enable getting lube in there easier. Nuthin! Still binding, mainly on one side!
Got my head right in there, while hitting the up/ down button (kid's, don't try this at home
), I noticed two small dia fixed tubes, with rods that slide in and out of them
! Guess these are what keep everything square!
Little grease on these rods, and she's raising and lowering like butter!
Hope this helps anyone who has had trouble with this pesky thing that us drivers, never get to enjoy
