Default Steps to take the rear body off of a 2012 YDRE

Anyone know where I can see a step-by-step on how to take the rear body off of my cart? I want to get the motor off and look it over (and maybe replace the brushes) and believe the panel has to come off first.

You can remove the motor without removing the rear body. Put it up on ramps and take the bag well cover off. You can unbolt the motor and drop it down. Put a strap around it and let it down easily. I have done this with mine - much easier than removing the body.
IMPORTANT! Put it in TOW mode and disconnect one of the battery cables before starting work!

I had it on jacks yesterday to check the axle nuts. I was trying to figure out if I could get it off and out....I'll give it a try. Have you ever messed with changing the brushes on your motor? That's why I want to get the motor off

If you succeed, a guide would be awesome :)

I had my motor out to replace it with a D&D. It was not hard at all - I had a buddy help from the top while I helped underneath when installing the new motor. Getting the old one out I did by myself from the bag well. I wrapped a piece of webbing around the motor to hold onto when I lowered it down after pulling it free from the coupler.
No I have not done a brush job on one of these.
