Blue plastic piece over x wing motor Empty
PostSubject: Blue plastic piece over x wing motor   Blue plastic piece over x wing motor I_icon_minitimeSun Dec 22, 2013 1:45 am

Has anyone taken the blue plastic piece that holds the X wing motor in place out? I can't tell if its glued in place or held on some other way.

If you took it out, how did you get it out?

Thanks,

John

Why do you need to remove the motor? They 'always' come back to life  :scratch:

It does look 'welded' in place. I'd imagine brute force or a drill to remove it & superglue for the fix.

Unfortunately mine did not come back to life by spinning it. I am trying to jump start it with a 9 volt battery, but I cannot get the wires from the 9 volt into the motor. If could get the motor out I could get the wires right into the motor.

Just trace the wires that do go to the motor & hook the 9 volt battery to a suitable joint/connection.

Do you mean maybe back to the metal connectors that the 2 AA batteries sit on?
