Default Guide Ring Question

Am I able to see if the guide ring on the motor of my CC is shot or is it one of those things you replace and hope it fixes the problem?

The guide ring is a ring that goes on the inside of the motor shaft with the splines on it. The cart is my 99 DS that was for sale but I pulled it off the market because it is making a horrendous noise from the rear end.

As cheap as one is and as easy as one is to replace, I'd just put one in and see if it fixes the noise. Is the noise during acceleration, or just when maintaining speed and letting off the go pedal?

It's an "all the time" noise. I am hoping it is just this $5 part and not brushes or a transaxle issue.

In my experience, the noise caused by the guide ring is usually on deceleration or when at a constant speed. For around $5 though, it wouldn't hurt to be sure.

Also check the motor bearing, at the other end of the armature.
