Gear clicking in rear

I have a John Deere Gator 12 volt riding kids toy. It sounds like the gear teeth are worn and all it will do is sit and click when you try to go. Is there a way to fix this problem? Can the Gator be taken apart and how? Thanks.

Does it go in reverse without clicking? If so then the teeth are worn over to one side. If thats it you can swap the motor and gearboxes from side to side, left to right and right to left, and get a little more time out of them. Otherwise you will need to replace the gearboxes. There are plenty of places to buy them from and they are not hard to change. No special tools. Best source of info I have found is They have lots of info and its all free.

John deear Gator 12 volt ride on toy

one of your motors is probably out, you'll have to remove the dump box, and then the top panel, this should give you access to the motors unplug one and then test the gears, then do vice versa with the other motor, might still be under warranty, if you can provide me the date code i can tell you if its still under warranty
