Wheelchair will not open fully

I have a Carex wheelchair for only less then a year, and the problem with this with wheelchair is that it will not fully open or will not spread apart at all. Upon looking closely or inspecting the chair as I push it down to open fully, I notice that at times the left or the right will not slide down, which prevents the seat from collapsing down to open fully. Because of this I am uable to open my wheelchair to open fully to allowed me to sit. At time when the wheelchair would only open halfway I have to sit in it in a tight position and Hopeing that with my weight it would force it to open up, which it dose sometimes, but now it will not open anymore. The part in which it needs to slide down which is the left and right is stuck, I tried WD40 by spraying and lubracating the bar and forcefully pushing the bar down. It work , but for only 4 days, now it’s back to square one. Is there anyone in the ifixit commmunity who are familiar with wheelchari repair, or knows how to disassemble the wheelchair? I have continuely have contacted the company (Carex) for support and help as to how I am able to repair this problem, but I have not heard or recieve any information at all. I do not want to pay addition $500 a new one, since this one is not even a year old. Please help. Thank You.

Can you post some pics of the problem areas? Also, can you post the model number. WD-40 is a light oil and will evaporate after a while. A heavier oil may help.

Thank you rokin154 and oldturkey03, for the technical advice as to where I should start looking for what causing the problems with my wheelchair, by following your given advice. Now that I have a fully working wheelcahir, I don’t have to worry about finding or getting a new one, not at least for maybe another yerar or two. Thank you so much.

Our wheelchairs habitually bind on the tilt point where the crossbars attach to the frame. It is most often caused by either loose bolts or worn bushings/bolts; less likely are bend cross bars Take a look at those points.

It looks from the pics that it’s a matter of parts sliding along the tubes. See if a heavier oil (called machine oil) will help.
