The sides have 4 tabs for the “window” panels. The biggest mistake people make doing this for the first time, including me, is to put the cocktail stick between the outer body housing and the window, but it should be between the black bottom frame and the “window”. If you pull the body out with force, you would break the clips in the window panels. Lift the body straight out of the housing. Put the body housing aside.
De-solder the two wires that connect to the board.
Remove the two screws and take the electronics board off. Make sure you don’t loose the lights and that metal disc on top of them, which are loose after removing the board.
With superglue, fit the plastic insert in place to level the base. Adjust the size if it is too large.
Glue the motor assembly with epoxy glue in place. I use Araldite Instant 90 seconds glue. Make sure it is straight and the gears are aligned with the sprockets below.
Put the model together and you’re done! Test the model before putting the housing back on. Check if your model runs and also runs in the correct direction. If it runs in the opposite direction of your other analog models, swap the wires to the contacts. If everything works well, press housing and chassis together. Or fit DCC, sound and/or a Powerpack (see below)
