1) Put cart run/tow switch in tow position.
2) Disconnect the Neg cable from your battery pack.
3) Make a diagram, take a picture etc of exactly how your motor is hooked up.
4) Remove bolts holding motor. I think mine had 3 of them?
5) Cautiously remove motor; it should slide without real issue as it is splined and should have some grease on the splines. Yes it is heavy but it's not that heavy....

Just don't do what I did. After repeated drops of the axle to get the armature off I slammed it down and busted the differential in several places. $600+ later, I have a Bandit and new(used) rearend complete.

This might be one time when it's better to take the rearend to the cart shop and tell them to call you when it's done.

Let's face it. This cart has been the poster child for Murphy's Law.

I'm sure you've farmed out some of the work on your cars also.

Good luck on whatever you do.

Yes, started out good with a net zero after selling the 36v charger that came with it. But there have been some unplanned issues (most related to the motor being stuck) and I got the one that had a armature that would not come off. Oh well,... it's getting there.

To understand issues with motor removal - CLICK ON THIS LINK

Sometimes motors can be wiggled and jiggled free (Caution - the motors are HEAVY) but more often than not - the main shaft splines are stuck or rusted in place and need "skilled removal" as described above.

When removing the electrical connections on the motor, use two wrenches;
one on top of the cable end, and a wrench right under the cable end (the lug at the end of the wire, that connects to the motor). If you don't, you run the risk of spinning the connection inside the motor & breaking the wiring inside the motor.

Put the cart in tow, disconnect negative battery wire first!
