My son has a Ford F150 (see pic below), that seems to have stripped gears. I think it's because he goes fast in forward gear, then slams it into reverse without stopping! When he tries to drive uphill, I can hear it skipping, and then it will just stop and grind. Seems to still go OK on flat ground but not as well as used to.

Is this trashed? Or is there a way to fix it?

Thanks !

You just need some replacement gear boxes. Should be 16T but look at this thread to confirm. http://www.modifiedpowerwheels.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=2206

Just post a wanted add in the for sale section and someone will hook you up. What state are you in? maybe someone close bye will have parts.

Looks like you guys know what you're talking about! Thanks for the reply and part number. Someone suggested putting two new ones in, instead of just the one. So, my next question is, are these fairly easy to do? I'm no mechanic, but I can pretty much figure most things out. I'm a do-it-myselfer most of the time. I haven't torn one of these things apart before though, so just wanted to ask if it's pretty straight forward? I haven't looked too close yet, but is there a way to easily get at the gear box area? Thanks!

I'm not familiar with that particular vehicle, but these are generally pretty simple to change. Usually, the worst part is dealing with the push-nuts, but 'gameboy' made a FAQ for a technique that works very well...

http://www.modifiedpowerwheels.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=3152

You should only need to remove the push-nut from one side, then slide the axle out from the other side.

I've tried a bunch of different things and the pliers work the best.
the goal is to bend the inner tabs away from the axle by squeezing the outside.
And be gentle with the motors/wire connection. Too much tugging and they weaken.

Don't think outside the box.
Think outside the sphere that the box is floating in.

The monster traction does not use the push caps on the rear. Just on the front.
On your ford f-150 you will need to remove the center cap from the hubcap with a small screwdriver prying against the fake lug nuts(BE GENTLE). You will only need to remove the one wheel. When you get the center cap removed you will see a keeper pin. Remove the pin and your wheel is ready to be removed. Then you will see your gearbox. Slide the rear axle out for easy access to both sides.

I have the same problem, different vehicle have a 12v 2 seater spideman jeep, I don't know who makes them, it's striped one of the gears in the gearbox, it has two gearboxes one on each wheel,can anybody help me with the manufacturer, its not an old car by the look of it I don't want to throw away the whole car for the sake of a gear because my son loves it.
one of the peg perego gear box is very similar, but this is def not a peg perego vehicle.
