Default New PQ Bandit Motor Install

I just received a new PQ Bandit motor for my 06 CC Precedent and wanting to install it now , but it didn't come with any instructions and I can't find any real specific instructions on here.

1st) I'm assuming unplug charger and put cart in tow mode.
2nd) Disconnect negative cable first then positive cable.
3rd) ???????

Do I need to purchase a bumper, drive unit and the moly-teflon lube?
Is there anything else needed?
Do the cables go back on just like they came off?

Any help would be great.
THANKS!!!

The cable ends at the motor terminals are sandwiched between 2 nuts. You must use two wrenches to remove the cable. One open end wrench is put on the bottom nut and then a second wrench is used to loosen the top nut. The function of the bottom wrench is to prevent the motor terminal stud from spinning. If the stud is allowed to spin internal damage will occur.

Mark all the cables with tape and letters like A1 A2 etc before removing any...

Thanks, my biggest concerns are with the grease and motor drive bumper.
I've read where several people have taken the new PQ motor and installed it w/o even applying any more grease or anything and where others have added a new bumper, grease, anti-seize, and dielectric grease.

Scotty brings up a very important point by using the two wrenches. But pack isolation is serious business as well. I have learned the hard way about this issue, and the is because I wasn't even working on the motor just in the area. The controller is very sensitive and can be severely damaged if care is not taken. I would recommend installing insulated boots over the connections at the motor. You have the proper steps listed to isolate the pack. As far as removal of the motor itself should be pretty easy. Mine slid right off of the shaft, but be ready it is heavy and difficult to handle in the tight space provided. I cleaned the residue in the housing and applied a little anti-seize to the shaft before installing the Bandit. Probably would have to say one of the easiest upgrades I have done to the cart.

Here are the steps from my PQ installation sheet:

1) Key off
2) Switch to Tow
3) Disconnect Negative Lead
4) Disconnect Positive Lead

Once the new motor is installed reverse the steps.

As mentioned already and I'll say it again as PQ made sure to tell me twice... make sure your battery pack is isolated before you do anything! If you follow the steps above you should be fine.

I started to swap out the motors tonight and have come across a BIG problem. I disconnected all the cables, and removed the 4 bolts, but it won't slide off. The motor will spin around, but won't slide off. I've tried pulling, tapping, prying, and nothing.
ANY SUGGESTIONS???? PLEASE HELP!!!

Default Re: MOTOR REMOVAL

have had similar problems in my job. (not with golf carts but with electric motors and transmissions )

try taking the motor apart by loosing the small screws aound the housing...

the field windings (bulk of the weight) should slide off leaving the bearing and armature..... get a heat gun or hair dryer and heat the area near the spline.
(the motor and shaft coupling area) this will loosen and GUMED UP lube that was prevoiusly applied.....

if your lucky the motor will not fall on your head......yuk yuk yuk

good luck


p.s. if that doesn't work your will need to increase heat level..."TORCH"

rubber mallet to the base of the motor like you were trying to bang it into place. Then try pulling again.

or not....

When I switched out my motor a rubber mallet and pry bar really helped... although the weight still caught me by surprise...
