Default 2008 ezgo will run but wheels will not turn

2008 ezgo will run but the wheels will not turn. Was driving up a slick hill and cart spun out and started backwards I try to continue up but it grab and then the wheels stop turning and I rolled back. What is wrong with it? I have been told it could be the hub is sheared. If so do I need to get a new hub. If so what wheel does the hub need to be changed? What size hub and is there a diff in what wheel it goes to.

Certainly sounds like a classic hub issue .. That is the weak link in the EZGO armour
Fixing issue is not a huge deal .. Could be that the nut needs tightened

Mine stripped a hub. Start the engine and look down to see if the axle nut is moving around by its self if it is you found the problem.

sounds like a stripped hub to me as well. This might just be the easiest thing to fix on a golf cart BECAUSE I DID IT BY MYSELF ONCE...

The stock ezgo hub is a low grade casting designed to hold up under the strain of driving 300 yds down the golf course fairway. To get another stock hub is foolish. for about the same $ you can get heavy duty hubs by Ausco. Search the web for the lowest price on Ausco #2127..... I know where you will end up.

You think he's stripping the hubs on his RXV cart? I guess he could if the axle nut backed off? It's not nearly as common but it's possible.

Early RXV carts had issues stripping hubs. As all the braking and acceleration is done through the hub. Have replaced many of those..
