Everything you need to know about Pads & Pads Sensors for Ninebot Mini...
TIPS FOR NEWBIES : CAUTION FOR REMOVING PADS
To newbies users this is an important tip :
When you clean your MINI, you can not remove and simply put back the pads.
Pads that are replaced from above are not properly replaced.
The plate, under the pads, which touches the joystick loses adhesion.
The result in driving can be disastrous.
The Mini no longer respond properly, no longer has the same responsiveness, driving is derived.
The Mini is the miniaturization of a PT-type Segway
All parts are nested to each other
If you remove the pads, you must replace them beginning with dismantling the bases of the pads.
There are several notches provided for inserting the pads.
REMOVAL OF FOOT SENSORS ASSEMBLY (L & R)
Dismantle eight M4*8screws with a hex wrench _2.5mm to disassemble the left and right foot sensors assembly. Remove the two compact bowls right below the foot sensors clamps.
INSTALLATION OF COMPACT BOWLS
The compact bowls switch should be placed in right direction. (NOTE: Direction)
INSTALLATION OF FOOT SENSORS
The foot sensors should be placed in right direction. (NOTE: Direction)

DISASSEMBLING THE FOOT MAT ASSEMBLY
Dismantle eight M3*6screws with a hex wrench _2.5mm to disassemble the foot mat assembly.
INSTALLATION OF FOOT MAT ASSEMBLY
The foot pedal assembly should be placed right direction. Tightened the screws properly (NOTE: Distinguish about Left & Right)
REMOVAL OF FOOT MATS AND PEDAL FRAME

ASSEMBLING OF FOOT MATS AND FRAME
The foot mats and pedals frame assembled. (Note: Pay attention to the left and right foot mats, left foot and left foot on the pedal bracket pad, right foot pedal bracket and the right foot pad)
If you remove the pads easily, as I did, do not put them back by inserting them from above.
There are 3 notches inside, if they are not put back properly, the joystick, which normally adhere to the plate under the pads, are no longer in direct contact.
The Mini will deviate from his direction, contact foot / pad will be less reactive and, of course, dust and water are going to introduce.
After removing the pads, I put them back, foolishly on top, but it was not good, there are 3 notches inside, if they are not replaced correctly, the joystick, which normally adhere to the plate under the pads, are no longer in direct contact.
My mini deviated during a ride, the reactivity was not the same..
So watching the video tutorial of speedyfeet to disassemble and reassemble the pads, step by step, piece by piece, I had to dismantle and assemble all everything in order.
