Hey! I have one question for monorail fans: how to disassemble a monorail motor? I want to clean it a bit. ;) Is it possible without any damage?

Thank you.

I doubt this can be done without damaging the motor in some way. If you have dust clogging the bogey wheels or the metal gear, that can be easily removed by hand without opening the motor.

A toothbrush might work to remove fluff from around the metal gear at the bottom.  The gear tends to accumulate dust from the track.  The stiffer the toothbrush bristles, the better for getting into tight spaces and removing fluff.

Also dust your track before you run the train, to help stop this problem occurring frequently.
