How To Replace A Stripped Golf Cart Hub When Rear Wheels Are Slipping Video

Replace A Stripped Golf Cart Hub

This video will show you how to fix and repair a broken or stripped out rear wheel hub on your 1982 and up year golf cart.

Over time your golf cart drive train can wear down to the point you may need to replace a few parts. One of the first things to go will often be the soft metal used on stock golf cart hubs.

The hub uses a weaker metal than the drive axle on golf carts and the teeth that grab hold and spin the wheel and tire to drive the cart can wear down to nubs. Just order two new rear hubs and pop them on yourself without the need of taking your cart in for costly repairs.

Just follow these simple steps laid out in this video below.

  1. I started up my 2008 EZ-GO electric golf cart a few days ago and heard a repetative loud clunk when either backing up or going forward. A neighbor told me the problem was probably that the rear wheel hubs needed replacing because the teeth were either broken or stripped. Does this sound like what it is? A repair place I called will charge me $147 to “find” the problem and then estimates (upon my description of the sounds I just described) on parts/repair would be between $200-$300. I bought the cart second-hand and want to re-sell it. It is in otherwise excellent condition.

    Bruno: Sounds more like the rear end than hubs. Most likely somewhere in the rear drive line. A good shop should be able to tell right away by jacking up the rear end and twisting the rear wheel back and forth.
