Hi,

I need some information. Is the vehicle fully electric or a hybrid? Also, please provide the VIN so I can be sure to get the correct information.

Let me know.

Hi,

I attached the directions below. Please understand, the high-voltage system needs to be disabled before you do anything. The disabling procedure starts with pic 21 below and I highlighted it. The first 20 pics are the directions for replacing the drive motor.

Again, this isn't a simple job to do because the voltages produced by these batteries can cause death. Also, if there is something that shorts and causes the batteries to overheat, it will cause a fire that can be extremely hard to extinguish.

You must protect yourself.

Take care,

Joe
