More pictures, please NEW

This is really great!! I finally found someone actually opening the motor up. How much force will I need to open the canister? Did you put any lubricants or heat to loosen it? Is it sealed with some adhesive or is there a gasket inside that keeps it waterproof? Please provide more pictures at javedb721@gmail.com so I can visualize clearly how you did it. I want to attempt to disassemble my Aquabot Turbo T's drive motor but was a little leary. Your instructions are giving me confidence to go for it! Thank you.

Too tight..
by: Mark

My slave motor is not running (went from weak to dead fairly quick) So I was going to open it up and see if the issue was the slave or the master not sending power over. Well for get that. I used an oil filter strap wrench and some heat from a hair dryer type heat gun and no dice. With a 1/2" socket wrench turning the strap, I almost gave out of strength about when the strap slipped. I think I will just part out this Plus RC and buy a 600$ Breeze 4X4. Not as fancy but will get the job done with a lot less complexity. Mark

Breaking canister seal

Very nice instructions. Those canisters can be tough to open.
