Just take the regular screw out.. then pull the blue part (the top) from the black part (plus wheels). It'll come apart.. also: the front (where the screw is) comes apart FIRST.. because the back part is kinda into the back of the train. Try it.. it's easier than you think.

The triangle shaped screws are the same type found on Nintendo DS systems... they're called tri-wing. I bought mine off eBay for less than $2 shipped from Hong Kong.

How do I change the battery in a motorized wooden railway engin for thomas the train


2 options.

1.if its the kind that fits on the wooden track look for a screw (philips/star screwdriver) on the underside of Thomas near his face. The body shell should lift off.you will then see the battery.

2 If it's the plastic blue track you have to squeeze the right center wheel and left center wheel. Thomas has 6 wheels so the 2 center/middle wheels, after squeezing this will then make the top portion pop off.

I through away directions by mistake. How do I put the battery in Percy. Thanks.


My child has a similar train but it is a Thomas instead of a Percy. There is probably a screw on the bottom. My son's train has three screws and the one in the middle (+) is the one that opens the train so I can put a battery in it.

My thomas the train ride on toy wont move unless you assist it by turning the wheel after pressing the go button


A few things can cause this: The battery is weak/bad. The connector at the battery might be worn out and have intermittent contact. Those are fairly easy things to check. Next, the GO button might be worn out internally (high resistance contacts)-believe it or not, the whole motor current goes through that switch. You would need to remove top of the roof to access the button. Or, open the speaker cover, pull out the control board and bypass Go switch wires to check for train proper operation. As you are already there, inspect the control/sound board. The last thing that comes to my mind is the motor itself, it is under the seat. Check contacts to motor, plus you can spray contact cleaner or, if you don't have anything else, alcohol. Avoid using WD40 - it does the job, but collects new dirt very very fast). There is always a chance of pinched/loose wire, or mechanical problem with gear assembly/jamming or so.

Dont know how to change the battery in Thomas Jet engine.


Hey. I was looking for the same thing and found this answer on yahoo answers:
"loosen the phillips-head screw on the underside front center of the jet engine train (you might not have noticed it - it is behind the coupling magnet assembly, which you can move to the side and also has an opening to access the screw) - once the screw is loosened, you can lift up the 'jet engine' from the base to access the battery enclosure"

I cannot promise that this is the problem, but this is where mine was broken, and you may be able to fix yours this way.

I was able to remove the plastic around the tender and access the motor. Using alligator clips, I was able to connect the battery directly to the motor, bypassing the circuit board. The motor functioned, therefore the only component that seemed to be defective was the circuit board, located behind the speaker in the engine unit.

As far as I know, the only place to buy a replacement circuit board is from www.tigerimports.com. Search for part number MEVA0024. Cost is around $15 + shipping (around $6 or so).

I should be receiving this part by the end of the week and will report if it fixed the problem.

Thanks for using Fixya. If I didn't help your situation, please DO NOT label this advise as "inappropriate".
