  • Using your H 6.0 allen wrench, remove the four 20mm black bolts shown in the picture.

  • Take off the iron plate holding the wheel in place.

  • Remove the Motor/Wheel and set it aside close by to the hoverboard.

  • The wires from the Motor/Wheel should still be connected to the motherboard.

  • These bolts are very tight, it may be difficult to remove them. Try using a tool with a long handle.

  • Slide the protective plastic off the connectors on the marked wires (green, blue, and yellow) using your hands or a set of tweezers.

  • The connectors on the wires of your hoverboard may be different from those shown in the pictures on the left due to differences in manufacturing.

  • Separate the set of marked green, blue, and yellow wires from their connectors.

  • Finally separate the last connector shown on the left.

  • Your wheel is completely removed; slide in a new Motor/Wheel into the slot and follow the previous steps in reverse order.

  • Make sure the replacement wheel is snug. Neither rubbing on the outer rim nor on the side of the hoverboard.
