i found this scooter (it's an es1-300 i think) in a canyon covered in dirt about a month ago, my friends and i have cleaned it off, giving it a new custom paint job, adding some griptape, and hopefully getting it to work again, (and remove the gps if we can do that)

however, i have a few questions about this:
1. [this is my most important question] what type of screw do the scooters use?(photo at bottom) i know it's a torx security screw, not sure which one though. heard somewhere that it's maybe a 9?
2. where is the gps, how do i remove it without damaging the rest of the scooter?
3. if i am able to get it working again, how do i remove the pay-to-use system? i'd like to have this for personal use, no pay required.
4. is there any way i can get a charger without becoming an actual bird scooter charger?

if anyone is able to to answer these, thank you :>
(as for pictures, i'm aware of my crappy paint job, im gonna redo it soon with better quality paint)

1. Torx security t25
2. Doesn’t appear you have one on that scooter but I can’t really tell for sure from the pictures, usually the GPS units are on the top or near the base. You just unscrew and unplug it carefully and it won’t get damaged.
3. If you remove the gps it doesn’t need to be paid for, it won’t work though until you flash it, not going into detail because there’s tons of threads about it on here already.
4. Yes you buy one.
