Default Could it be the motor bumper

2000 DS.

At very very low speed i have a clunking noise from the rear end. So i lifted the access panel and rested my hand on the motor. Its as though something is loose in there and the clunking is definitely coming from the motor.

Could it be that the bumper in the female coupling needs replacing?

Thanks

could be one of the little screws in the bearing keeper fell out

they are on the end of the motor plate and easy to check

Its feels as though something is moving around in there, however it stops the quicker you go

the older cars had a glue in shaft guide ring and if its loose i will make a noise at slow speeds or deacceleration

Ya I had problems with 02-03 CC's doin that, typical club car noise, but ya its the bumper in the female coupling, just good luck pulling the motors on those CC's the armature tends to stick to the input shaft on the diff all the time, Club car was to cheap to put 3cents worth of anti-seize in the coupler when they put the motor on.

Oh boy not as bad as EZGO. One time I was removing an EZGO motor from the rear end and it was seized on there so badly the motor case ended up pulling off before the internal parts, and the armature and stuff were still stuck on the rear end.

I beg to differ, I have pulled tons of motors on both ezgo and club cars, I have only had 1 or 2 ezgo motors stick on me, 75% of the time the club car required some sort of an attitude adjustment on the motor. What year of ezgo was it you had problems with?

We are just opposites then. I haven't had any CC's stick from 1980's model to present. The EZGO was a 01+. I was pulling the rear end out of that cart to put in a friends. You should have seen the differential in his cart they must have been jumping it...cracked into pieces so bad the gears wouldn't mesh, tires bowed in...wonder why it wouldn't run.
