how do i put the clips back in?

Are you referring to the clips in step three? If so, i highly recommend a hard, flat edged tool like a plastic spudger or flat head screw driver. Push is against the opposite side of the C clip that is opened with roughly the same force you applied to get it off. You have to be really careful that you push it directly horizontal or else you might damage the shaft or risk loosing the clip if it pops off.

  • Remove the small retaining clip using a plastic opening tool.

  • Be careful as these clips can fly off and can be difficult to find.

  • The propeller, gear, and rod can be removed by simply lifting them off the motor.
