Coach step gear replacement, Class A diesel

Recommended Posts

What is the procedure for replacing the toothed gear? (My 15 YO gear is missing a few teeth.) I have the gear and know the main bolt is 8 MM hex fitting. Pls see picture.

This looks like the gear that drives Kwikee steps.  Extend the steps and support them with a bungie or block because they'll swing free when you remove the linkage.  Remove the 3 bolts that hold the plate that covers the motor and this gear.  Slide the plate to one side so you can reinsert one of the bolts to hold the motor in place.  Remove the nut that secures the linkage to the gear.  Remove the hex bolt that holds the plate to the gear.  As I recall this will release the gear.  Reassemble in reverse order.  I had a devil of a time getting the plate and motor lined up so the 3 bolts would go back in.

I have found that it is easier to remove the drive motor and do the replacement on you workbench. You won't have to worry about parts falling out and you can also lube the gears at the same time.
