There is a lever on the rear of the motor housing that you move to freewheeling. Be aware that in freewheeling mode there is no braking so thake care on hills.

Could be a loose connector half way down the steering column or where the front joins onto the read. Alternatively, the freewheeling lever maybe loose, or the power controller has a fault

Probably needs a bit of grease on the rod to ensure it can clip together smoothly.  Check the pin with the ring pull moving freely.

I found it to be a little too wide on pavements near me. I didn't even try in shops. The top speed is also faster than permitted but it doesn't have the lights and indicators for use on the road.

It will, if you use the lever on the motor, on standard mobility scooters the lever usually has a coloured cover. Take care on hills when using freewheeling as its weight will allow it to pick up speed rapidly. There are No brakes in freewheeling mode

When I first bought the buggy it stopped and wouldn't move unless the throttle was used, although the buggy still moves forward and reverse by the throttle control when it stops it is in neutral, you can push it forward or in to reverse? Anyone have any ideas?

It's a combination of declining battery strength and inclines. If you push it too hard it appears to be a battery fail safe mode that will stop everything until you wait until it's all cooled down (2hrs plus) or you plug the charger in again. It can happen on the first or last hole, but if you are leaning forward to avoid it tipping back or just willing it on, the incline and your weight are just too much. New batteries will increase the speed up hills but also increase the risk of tipping back. Best to approach hills at the least incline possible and avoid stop starting on a steep incline.

Why does the gearbox go clunk and eventually break the drive shaft I have had 2 new shafts? Instead of machining the shaft the same thickness all the way along they machine the wheel ends smaller and guess where the snap. Is it because the electro brake is too sharp?

I cannot charge batteries whilst left on board. I have brought a new charger and had the same problem. Have checked wires in back box and all looks to be okay. Is there a way I can charge them separate/together by taking them off the buggy?
