2280Re: What to look for when buying a used Solectria?
- Dec 5, 2006I just broke open the gearbox of the 1999 Solectria Force I just bought. It was making a lot
of noise. What a disaster. There was at least a tablespoon full of metal filings in the bottom
of the case. Most of the teeth on the main gear were broken. Other gears had many broken
teeth. The box is toast. The message here is that if it makes noise, investigate. Don't ignore
it. If you are lucky it's a minor bearing replacement. But if you ignore it, it may mean
replacing the whole box. Over $2,000.
