Hi, I have a Marklin 8803 and the motor has burnt out. I have stripped the loco down as far as I can but cannot work out how to seperate the motor from the chassis. Does anyone have any ideas. The Marklin owners manual and spare parts list don't show how to do it. Help please before it
is sent to the great locomotive shed in the sky.

Hi,

It looks like you'll need to remove the worm gear to remove the motor. There is information about that here : Removing the worm gear

Hope this is of help

Thanks, I didn't realise that it was essential a push fit for the worm gear. I thought it was all one piece with the motor. Shall now be looking for a small enough gear puller.

Dremel ... Cut the shaft. Replace with new 260050 worm gear and new 209454 armature. Using gear pullers and Arbor presses to remove can lead to damaging the brass bushing - a kill shot to the entire chassis. In my experiences I've destroyed about 50% of the chassis in attempting to use pressing to remove motors. I stopped after damaging 3 and now use dremel instead. You do need the press to carefully re-press the new worm onto the new armature.

I’ve only ruined one when using a puller.

One ruined out of one attempt 😭

The Hobo proprietor is wise.
