Tools:

  • 3mm Allen T-Handle
  • #2 Phillips Screwdriver

 


Process:


Place the board on a riser that hangs the wheels off the table. A small box works well.





Use the 3mm Allen T-Handle to remove the 6 screws holding on the battery box. Put the 6 screws to the side.


  




Grab around the board while supporting the unattached battery box. Carefully flip it over. 








Flip over the battery box.







Notice that the motor wires coming out of the battery box will now be crossed.





Use the #2 Phillips Screwdriver to remove the 6 screws that hold the lid onto the battery box.



 




There may be a light bead of silicon holding the lid to the battery box. Gently grab the motor wires near the back of the battery box and lift up to dislodge the lid. Lift the lid off of the battery box.



 



Disconnect the battery from the motor controller before working on anything inside the battery box.






View the motor controller. Follow the wire from each motor into the battery box. Note that the wiring for each motor is on the opposite side of the motor. 





Identify the 3 wires that connect each motor to the motor controller.


Make sure all connections are correct and firm, and the clear rubber insulators fully encase all exposed copper on each wire connector.



Below is an example of a motor with two motor wires that are loose.  Note the red motor wire and blue motor wire that are not fully connected:





Below is an example of a motor wires firmly connected.  Note that the clear rubber insulators fully encase all exposed copper on each wire connector.


Note: On some newer replacement motors the connections may differ from your original motor: red-red, green-green, blue-blue.


 



Reconnect the battery to the motor controller.





Put the lid back into place. Notice that the countersinks are only on one side. This side should be facing up.


Use the #2 Phillips Screwdriver to tighten the six screws that hold the lid on.

 






Flip the battery box over.



 





Grab the board so that you are supporting the unattached battery box.  Carefully flip it back over and set it back on top of the riser box used earlier. 

 






 
Use the 3mm Allen T-Handle to secure the battery box to the deck with the six battery box mount screws. Put a drop of thread lock onto the threads near the end of each screw.
