Default Hornby Class 56 Bogie Removal.

Does anyone know how to remove the bogies from the DCC ready Class 56? I have removed everything including the motor but I cannot see how to uncouple the bogie from the worm holder. There are no screws and the service sheet has not been a help to me. The reason I am doing this is the bogie wheels are stiff anf the motor refuses to drive them so I have to take them apart to find out what is going on?

I think I know but will wait to see if anyone else replies while I check my facts.

The worm drive holder has a snap on piece of plastic to keep the worm engaged with the drive shaft, just need to be prized off, goes back together quite easily......

Thanks Timker for the reply. So the plastic worm housing will prise off. I will try that. Hope I don't break anything. Andy

Thanks Guys. Once I knew what I was looking for to open up it was quite straightforward. One bogie was fine but on the other bogie the worm had stuck itself to the square bearing and would budge. Once that was freed the problem melted away so to speak. andy
