Remove the motor
You might be able to pull the gear off with your fingers, but on my model it had a tight fit and I used my gear puller, available here. That made it an easy job (also very useful for other projects).
Press the sprocket on the brass tube.
Put solder on the contacts. You’ve got to use a solder iron, of course. Just holding soldering wire against a contact without using a hot solder iron, as seen on the picture, doesn’t get you anywhere.
Press housing back in place, fit screw and enjoy!
