Club Car Rear end Bearing Noise

 Over the years I have replaced a few bearings in CC rear ends . You know when they are going because they start sounding loud and whining  . The bearing on the opposite end on the shaft behind the secondary clutch is the culprit. If you pull the drive belt off and the noise goes away then you know it's the rear end for sure .First one I've done on the lift . Doing them on jack stands I didn't find them to hard to do . On the lift I supported the right rear frame area in front of the wheel with a 6x6 across the big wheel forks . That way you can remove everything on that side easily . I used my tripod to support the rear end and move it up and down as needed .
 Up in the air with right rear suspension hanging .
 Place tripod under rear end . Remove U bolt over axle ,shock ,  drive belt , secondary clutch , drain gear oil , axle bolts , axle removes easily , remove all the bolts for cover , bolts are all the same size .
 Remove the 2  - 10 mm . bolts
 Disconnect forward / reverse cable .
 Separate cover . There is a spot for a pry bar to fit in to help start it . Here is what it looks like .
 The shifting fork can only be installed in one direction . Keep track of which way it came out .
 I wiggle the 3 sets of gears out and remove them altogether . I find it easier to do it this way . Set them on the bench the way they came out .
 This is what it looks like when they are out . You will have to line the shifting fork up into the lever when reassembling .
The bad bearing is the one on the left . I replace both of them on this shaft only . The gear oil I find doesn't get up to this area well causing it to wear out .
 I don't have a press but this works well for me .
 For the other bearing I use threaded rod to make it work .
 I drive the new bearings on with my homemade tool . Also replace the seal for the secondary /driven clutch shaft .
 When installing the 3 sets of gears take your time and get the bearings seated in the case and line up your shifting fork and lever . Set them in the case by tapping the ends of the shafts with a dead blow hammer . The shaft for the shifting fork might take a bit to get it in , make sure you tap everything in secure .   I use RTV sealer and put a little grease on seal lip  then reassemble everything in reverse order . Lightly tab around the case to get it back on .  Use the bolt pattern sequence in book for case cover . Takes me about 1.5 to 2 hrs.

  10. What year are you referring to (club car) bc my cart is making the whining noise and it has gear oil so I assume it is the bearing

  16. Bob, can I use this to install high speed gears on a 2002 Kawasaki DS Gas cart? I read else where that I would need to take the entire diff off so the gears don't fall out when I open the diff cover. Is really possible to just jack the cart up on the right side so the cart sits at an angle and open the diff cover without the gears falling out?

  17. Thanks Bob. What I actually meant for the model is a 2002 Club Car DS Villager with the FE350 engine. So the gears don't actually fall out when you open it up?

  18. Thank you. I was dreading removing the entire diff. Or dropping the entire engine.

    2. Slides off . There is a keyway . Goes on torque to 18 ft lbs . I'd put a little blue loctite . They recommend a replacement bolt kit

  24. Bob, do you have to torque the bolts to close the rear? If so do you know the torque?

    ReplyDelete
  25. Is there a torque for the bolts when you put the rear back together?

    1. If you take the axle tube out and slide axle back in off machine there should be a circlip holding the axle in place . Must have broke or end of axle wore the groove out.
