SOURCE: Hi, any chance you can

There is a small screw hole on top of the train, down inside what looks to be the smoke stack.  Then insert 2 AAAs!

2001 jetta wolfsburg drops out of 5th gear


Hi Steven, check the engine and gear box mountings, but when the gears jump out of where you have selected it usually means a synchromesh clutch cone has become worn. That will mean a gear box rebuild. It may work out a lot cheaper for you to look for a good second hand box and fit that. You can sometimes pick up bargains at breakers yards. Don't shoot the messanger! Regards John

Does anyone have information where you can get replacement rubber tires / wheel grips for Brio electric train engines? (wooden tracks) We have a few electric engines that can no longer climb the hills...


I dont know where you can get replacement tyres. But here is a fix for the problem:
Using tweezers then fingers, pull off the existing tyres.
Take ordinary sewing thread, and wrap it around the V in the wheels (where the tyre was), about 20 turns or so, keeping the ends inside the V.
Put the tyres back on.
The thread forces the tyres further out, making some tread from the rubber available above the level of the plastic wheel rims.

How to change the battery in train 512


Hi Tarja, your question is 4 years old, but here is the answer:
You've probably seen the odd shaped tiny screws on the underside of the train. Ignore them - they require specialized tools and only lead to the wheels and gears.
You just need to insert a small cross-tip screwdriver into the exhaust funnel of the engine and remove the screw completely. The black front of the engine comes off and reveals AAA micro batteries which you gently shake out of the engine and replace.
As ever so often - once you know how to do it, it is very easy.
And - no, I didn't find out myself either *grin*

I don't have a Brio triangular screwdriver


The battery is easy to replace. The screw is located in the black "smokestack" and will require a small size phillips-head screwdriver to unscrew. The rest is easy--lift up on the black smokestack (I usually leave the screw in place), and the two AA batteries are located end-to-end in the body.

Polar express battery powered wood engine works and then doesn't


Try forcing a tiny hex screwdriver in the triangular hole.

Almost certainly a lose wire that you can solder back.

A great sense of achievement will result given that you didn't have to buy another one from China and trash yours!

So annoying that Brio have to use these screws given how flaky their toys are - they are almost designed to fail as the wires are so short they break quite quickly.

Good luck!

My granddaughter has about a dozen Brio batter-powered locomotives. Three of them will not move, even with new batteries. Two of them still light their lights and make train-whistle sounds. But they won't...


Alas, the traction drive on these Brio locomotives seems to have a pretty short life. According to a Brio rep, the only hope is to indeed give it a good firm solid whack down onto a hard surface (table or floor) in an attempt to get the internal pressure gears to settle down and get more traction. There's a 50/50 chance it might work. There is no other solution. Attempting to open it up will create a mess because it's almost impossible to get all the tiny loaded springs back into place. At least the lights and sounds still work, and it can be easily pushed around the track--it just will no longer do so itself...

Need to replace battery in brio big red engine


There is a battery down deep in the steam spout on top (black chimney type thing). Unscrew it and it slides off the front and allows you to insert 2 AAA batteries.
