Club Car Carryall vehicles are designed and built to provide maximum efficiency and performance. However, proper maintenance and repair is essential for achieving maximum service life and continued safe
and reliable operation. This maintenance and service manual provides detailed procedures for the maintenance and repair of those components that are common to all Club Car Carryall vehicles, and should be
used in conjunction with the appropriate maintenance and service supplement. The supplement will provide maintenance and repair procedures for those components specific to a particular type of vehicle. If
you do not have the appropriate supplement for your vehicle(s), you may obtain one of the following from
your Club Car distributor:
1998/1999 PowerDrive System 48 Vehicle Maintenance & Service Supplement
Publication Part No. 101968404
1998/1999 FE290 Gasoline Vehicle Maintenance & Service Supplement
Publication Part No. 101968407
1998/1999 FE350 Gasoline Vehicle Maintenance & Service Supplement
Publication Part No. 101968408
This manual and the supplement should be thoroughly read prior to servicing the vehicle. The procedures
provided must be properly implemented, and the DANGER, WARNING, and CAUTION statements must
be understood and followed.
This manual was written for the vehicle trained technician who already possesses knowledge and skills in electrical and mechanical repair. If the technician does not have such knowledge and skills, attempted service or repairs
to the vehicle may render it unsafe. For this reason, we advise that all repairs and/or service be performed by an
authorized Club Car distributor’s/dealer’s representative or by a Club Car factory trained technician.
It is the policy of Club Car, Inc. to assist its distributors and dealers in continually updating their service
knowledge and facilities so they can provide prompt and efficient service for vehicle owners. Regional technical representatives, vehicle service seminars, periodic service bulletins, maintenance and service manuals,
and other service publications also represent Club Car’s continuing commitment to customer support.
This service manual, used in conjunction with the appropriate supplement, covers all aspects of typical Carryall service. However, unique situations do sometimes occur when servicing a Carryall vehicle. If it appears
that a service question is not answered in this manual or the supplement, you may write to us at: Club Car,
Inc.; P.O. Box 204658; Augusta, GA 30917; Attention: Technical Services, or contact a Club Car Technical
Service Representative at (706) 863-3000, ext. 3580.

PERFORMANCE INSPECTION
After becoming familiar with the vehicle’s controls and after reading and understanding the driving instructions, take the vehicle for a test drive. Use the following checklist as a guide to inspect the new vehicle. Any
problems should be corrected by a Club Car dealer or a Club Car factory trained technician.
All Vehicles
• Brakes: Be sure the brakes function properly. When brake pedal is fully depressed under moderate pressure, it should not go more than halfway to the floor and the vehicle should come to a smooth, straight
stop. Carryall I vehicles should stop within 14 feet, and all other Carryall vehicles should stop within 16
feet. If the brake pedal goes more than halfway to the floor, or if the vehicle swerves or fails to stop within
the appropriate braking distance, have the brake system checked and adjusted as required. Brake adjustment must be maintained so the brake pedal cannot be depressed to the floor under any circumstance.
• Park Brake: When latched, the park brake should lock the wheels and hold vehicle stationary (on
incline of 20% or less). The park brake should release when either the accelerator or brake pedal is
depressed.
• Reverse Buzzer: The reverse buzzer(s) should sound as a warning when the vehicle is in REVERSE.
• Steering: The vehicle should be easy to steer and should not have any play in the steering wheel.
• Accelerator:
Pedal-Start Vehicles: With the key switch in the ON position and the Forward/Reverse handle in the
FORWARD position, depress accelerator pedal. As pedal is depressed, the engine or motor should
start and the vehicle should accelerate smoothly to full speed. When pedal is released it should return
to the original position and the engine or motor should stop. Club Car vehicles operate at reduced
speed when in REVERSE.
Key-Start Vehicles: After starting engine with the key switch, the vehicle should accelerate smoothly to
full speed as the accelerator pedal is depressed. When the pedal is released it should return to the
original position and engine should idle.
• Governor (gasoline vehicles): Check maximum speed of the vehicle. Carryall I and Carryall Turf II
vehicles should operate at 12-15 MPH (19-24 KPH) on a level surface. The Carryall II and Carryall VI
Page 3-2 1998/1999 Carryall Vehicle Maintenance and Service Manual
GENERAL INFORMATION

BATTERY WARNING LIGHT
Electric Vehicles Only
PowerDrive System 48 electric vehicles feature a dash-mounted battery warning light (above steering column) that, when the vehicle is in operation, indicates low battery voltage, or when the vehicle is being
charged, indicates a charging problem. The battery warning light is controlled by the PowerDrive onboard
computer.
When the vehicle is in operation, the warning light will illuminate and remain illuminated if:
• Batteries voltage drops below 48 volts when there is no load on the batteries (the vehicle is stopped
and there are no accessories on).
• Batteries are discharged to less than 25% of their capacity.
If the warning light illuminates repeatedly, with four second intervals, when the vehicle is operating, there will
be enough power remaining to drive the vehicle for approximately 30 minutes. However, the vehicle should be
charged at the first opportunity. If the warning light illuminates and the vehicle is unable to operate for 30 minutes, have a Club Car distributor/dealer check the vehicle for a possible battery or electrical system problem.
When the batteries receive an incomplete charge because 1) the DC power cord is disconnected, 2) AC
power to the charger is interrupted, 3) automatic charger shut-off occurs after 16 hours of operation, or 4) the
charger malfunctions, the warning light will indicate as follows:
Page 3-8 1998/1999 Carryall Vehicle Maintenance and Service Manual
GENERAL INFORMATION
Driving Instructions
• The warning light will not illuminate if the charge is 90% or more complete. The onboard computer will
retain in memory the amount of charge needed to fully replenish the batteries and will complete the
charge during the next charge cycle.
• When the charger is unplugged, the warning light will illuminate and remain illuminated for 10 seconds
if the charge is less than 90% complete but the vehicle has enough power for approximately 30 minutes
of operation. This will alert the operator that the vehicle may be used, but that it must be charged to
completion as soon as possible.
• The warning light will repeatedly illuminate for 10 seconds, at 4 second intervals, if charger times out at
16 hours (see PowerDrive Battery Charger Owner’s Manual) and the batteries are not sufficiently
charged. This indicates an abnormal charge cycle. The charger and batteries should be checked by a
Club Car distributor/dealer.
• The warning light will repeatedly illuminate for 10 seconds, at 4 second intervals, during a charge cycle
(DC plug is still connected) if AC power to the charger is interrupted. The light will go out when AC
power is restored.

GENERAL INFORMATION
Each vehicle is equipped with an injection molded ArmorFlex® front body and aluminum rear body. Use a
mild soap or detergent with a sponge or soft cloth for normal cleaning. Battery acid, fertilizers, tars, asphalt,
creosote, paint, or chewing gum should be removed immediately to prevent possible stains. Because the finish on the front body is the same as the finish on today’s automobiles, commercial automotive cleaning products should be used. For general cleaning of the aluminum rear body, use a mild liquid soap and a sponge or
soft bristle brush. To remove oxidation or discoloration from aluminum, use a commercially available aluminum cleaner paste and fine grade (No. 00) steel wool.

MONOCOAT PAINT INCORPORATION DATES
The monocoat finish was incorporated on a different date for each color. The date a vehicle body was painted
is printed on a small white or orange sticker affixed to the underside of the front body (it may be necessary to
remove the body to see the sticker). A white sticker typically will show the month/day/year the body part was
painted, whereas an orange sticker will show only the month/day and the number 2 or 3 (work shift).

STRESS LINES OR STREAKS
Repeatedly flexing the front body may cause white stress lines or streaks in the finish. To remove them:
1. Hold a heat gun 12 inches (30 cm) away from the affected area, with the gun on its lowest heat setting.
2. Slowly wave the heat gun back and forth over the affected area until the streak fades.
3. It may be necessary to move the gun closer to the body to fade the streak, but under no circumstance
should the gun be held closer than 6 inches (15 cm) to the body.
CAUTION
• HOLDING HEAT GUN TOO CLOSE TO BODY COULD MELT BODY OR DAMAGE FINISH.
MINOR IMPACT DAMAGE/DEFORMATIONS
Minor impact damage in the front body can be repaired using a procedure similar to the one used to remove
stress lines. To remove deformations resulting from minor impact damage:
1. Hold a heat gun 12 inches (30 cm) away from the affected area, with the gun on its lowest heat setting.
2. Periodically remove the heat gun and bend the body, using a push block, in the opposite direction of the
deformation.
3. Continue heating and bending the body until the original shape returns. Under no circumstance should
the gun be held closer than 6 inches (15 cm) to the body. See preceding CAUTION.
MINOR SCRATCHES AND SUFACE BLEMISHES
For minor scratches or blemishes in the Armorflex body that do not penetrate the finish:
1. Thoroughly clean the effected affected area using a strong, non-abrasive detergent and hot water, then
clean with Ultra-Kleen® Solvent Cleaner to remove any oil-based contaminants.
Page 4-2 1998/1999 Carryall Vehicle Maintenance and Service Manual
BODY AND TRIM
Front Body
2. Lightly buff imperfection with a clean, soft cloth or buff pad. Do not use any kind of polishing compound on
monocoat finished body assemblies. Scratches that do not penetrate the clear coat in non-monocoat bodies can be buffed out using most commercially available automotive polishing compounds and waxes.
3. Wax the entire body part to restore luster and weather protection.
SMALL SCRATCHES THAT CANNOT BE BUFFED OUT
1. Thoroughly clean the affected area and then dry.
2. Using 240 grit or finer sandpaper, lightly sand scratch to feather edges. Finish sand scratch with 320
grit or finer paper to remove gloss from surface. Sand as little body surface as possible beyond scratch.
CAUTION
• BE CAREFUL NOT TO SAND COMPLETELY THROUGH THE FINISH TO THE BODY MATERIAL.
IF THE FINISH IS SANDED THROUGH AND THE THERMO PLASTIC OLEFIN (TPO) BODY
MATERIAL IS EXPOSED, REFER TO GOUGES, PUNCTURES, TEARS, LARGE SCRATCHES
AND ABRASIONS ON PAGE 4-3.
3. Using the brush provided with the touch-up paint (available from Club Car Service Parts, see color
chart below), apply paint to the scratch. Multiple layers of paint may be required to fill the scratch.
4. Allow paint to dry completely (approximately 10 - 20 minutes), then lightly buff the imperfection.
5. Apply wax to the entire body part to restore luster and weather protection.

1.3. Loosen the brake stop jam nut (31), then relieve pedal pressure on the stop by pushing down
slightly on the pedal. Next, adjust the brake stop bumper (22) up or down (Figure 5-3, Page 5-2).
Adjusting the bumper upward decreases distance between pedal and floorboard. Adjusting the
bumper downward increases distance between pedal and floorboard. Proper brake pedal height
is 6 inches (15.2 cm) (Figure 5-4, Page 5-2).
1.4. Tighten the jam nut (31) to 8 ft.lb (9.5 N-m) (Figure 5-3, Page 5-2).
2. ADJUST BRAKE PEDAL FREE PLAY
NOTE
• BRAKE PEDAL FREE PLAY IS THE DISTANCE THE BRAKE PEDAL CAN BE DEPRESSED
BEFORE THE BRAKE ACTUATOR ARM (AT THE BRAKE CLUSTER) MOVES.
2.1. Measuring perpendicular from the floorboard to the back of the brake pedal, depress the brake
pedal and measure the distance that the pedal moves before all of the slack is taken out of the
brake cables (Figure 5-5, Page 5-3).
2.2. Tighten the nut on the equalizer rod so that the brake pedal free play is 1/4 to 1/2 inch (6.35 mm
to 12.7 mm) (Figure 5-1, Page 5-2 or Figure 5-2, Page 5-2 and Figure 5-5, Page 5-3).

3. ADJUST PARK BRAKE RATCHET/PAWL GAP AND PAWL ENGAGEMENT
3.1. Inspect the park brake pawl and ratchet for excessive wear, grooves, cracks or chips. If either the
pawl or ratchet is damaged, both must be replaced.
3.2. Adjust retaining nut (7) on spring support rod until there is a .060 inch (1.5 mm) gap between the
pawl and the tips of the ratchet teeth. Use a feeler gauge to verify the gap (Figure 5-6, Page 5-4).
The gap should be consistent through range of pawl movement. If the gap is not consistent,
loosen the four bolts (6) securing the accelerator pivot rod supports and adjust the supports (Figure 5-6, Page 5-4). If the gap becomes smaller as the park brake pedal is depressed, move the
pivot rod supports slightly rearward until the gap is consistent. If the gap becomes larger as the
park brake pedal is depressed, move the pivot rod supports slightly forward until gap is consistent. Read following NOTE before proceeding.

STEERING AND FRONT SUSPENSION
Front Suspension
WHEEL ALIGNMENT
Wheel alignment is limited to equalizing the camber angle of each front wheel and adjusting toe-in of the
front wheels. There is also a drag link adjustment to equalize the turning radius in both directions. See Steering Adjustment, Page 7-7.
NOTE
• PRIOR TO MAKING ANY FRONT SUSPENSION ADJUSTMENTS, INSPECT COMPONENTS FOR
WEAR OR DAMAGE AND REPAIR OR REPLACE AS NECESSARY.
Camber Adjustment
1. Check each front wheel with a framing square. At the floor (or ground), there should be an equal
amount of space between each tire and the framing square (Figure 7-15, Page 7-15).
2. Loosen (do not remove) the four bolts (30) that secure the leaf spring (6) to the bottom spring plate (29)
(Figure 7-21, Page 7-18). See also Figure 7-16, Page 7-15.
3. Loosen (do not remove) the hex nut (8) on the adjustment eccentric (7) (Figure 7-16, Page 7-15) in
the center of the spring. See also Figure 7-21, Page 7-18.
4. Use a 7 mm deep well socket to rotate the eccentric (Figure 7-16, Page 7-15).
5. After adjusting camber, tighten the four spring retaining bolts (30) (Figure 7-21, Page 7-18) to 23 ft.lb
(31 N-m). Then roll the vehicle forward one full tire revolution and recheck the camber. See also Figure
7-15, Page 7-15.
6. Tighten the hex nut (8) on the adjustment eccentric (7) to 10 ft.lb (13.5 N-m) (Figure 7-21, Page 7-18)
See also Figure 7-16, Page 7-15.
Toe-in Adjustment
1. On a level surface, roll the vehicle forward, then stop. Make sure the front wheels are pointed straight
ahead. Do not turn the steering wheel again during this procedure.
2. On each front tire, mark (as closely as possible) the center of the tread face that is oriented toward the
rear of the vehicle. The marks should be even with the bottom surfaces of the vehicle frame I-beams.
3. Measure the distance between the marks on the rear-facing surfaces of the tires, and then roll the vehicle forward one and one-half wheel revolutions until the marks appear on the forward facing surfaces of
the tires at about the same height from the floor (Figure 7-17, Page 7-15).
4. Measure the distance between the marks on the forward-facing surfaces of the tires.
NOTE
• THE FRONT MEASUREMENT MUST BE LESS THAN THE REAR MEASUREMENT.
5. Subtract the measurement on the front of the tires from the measurement on the rear of the tires. The
difference is the toe-in. Proper toe-in is 1/8 to 3/8 of an inch (3.2 to 9.5 mm).
6. If adjustment is necessary, loosen the jam nut on each tie rod ball joint and rotate the tie rod to increase
or decrease toe-in (Figure 7-18, Page 7-15). See following CAUTION.
CAUTION
• THE TIE ROD HAS RIGHT-HAND THREADS ON ONE END AND LEFT-HAND THREADS ON THE
OTHER END. RIGHT-HAND THREADS ARE IDENTIFIED BY A GROOVE IN THE TIE ROD.

TIRE REMOVAL
NOTE
• TIRE MUST BE REMOVED OR INSTALLED FROM THE VALVE STEM SIDE OF THE RIM.
1. Remove the tire and wheel assembly from the vehicle as instructed on page 8-2, Wheel Removal.
2. Remove the valve cap and valve core and allow air to escape from the tire.
3. If possible, use a tire machine to remove the tire from the rim.
3.1. If a tire machine is not available, loosen both tire beads by applying pressure to the tire side walls
and pushing the tire bead away from the rim flange and into the rim well (Figure 8-1, Page 8-2).
3.2. With the valve stem side of the wheel up, use a tire tool to carefully start the upper bead over the
edge of the rim (Figure 8-1, Page 8-2).
CAUTION
• TO AVOID DAMAGE TO THE TIRE, DO NOT USE EXCESSIVE FORCE WHEN STARTING THE
BEAD OVER THE EDGE OF THE RIM.
3.3. When the top bead is free of the rim, pull the bead from the bottom side of the rim up into the upper
part of the rim well. Insert the tire tool under the lower bead as shown (Figure 8-1, Page 8-2) and
carefully pry the lower bead over the rim flange.
3.4. Once the lower bead is started over the rim flange, the tire can be removed from the rim by hand.
TIRE REPAIR
1. Determine the location and cause of the air leak.
1.1. Remove the wheel as instructed on page 8-2, Wheel Removal, and inflate the tire to no more than
20 psi (138 kPa).
1.2. Immerse the tire in water and then mark the point where bubbles are formed by escaping air.
1.3. Determine the cause of the air leak and repair as required. See following NOTE.
NOTE
• AN AIR LEAK COULD BE DUE TO A PUNCTURED TIRE, FAULTY VALVE CORE, IMPROPERLY
SEATED VALVE STEM, OR IMPROPERLY SEATED TIRE BEAD.
• SMALL HOLES IN THE TIRE CAN BE PLUGGED USING A STANDARD AUTOMOTIVE TUBELESS
TIRE REPAIR KIT AVAILABLE AT AUTO SUPPLY STORES.

Tires
Tire Installation, Continued:
1. Clean both tire beads to remove dirt or other foreign matter.
2. Where the tire beads seat, clean the rim with a wire brush. Wipe away any debris with a clean cloth.
NOTE
• BECAUSE TUBELESS TIRES REQUIRE A PERFECT SEAL IN ORDER TO SEAT, KEEPING THE
TIRE AND RIM CLEAN IS VERY IMPORTANT.
3. Apply a liberal amount of tire mounting lubricant (soap and water solution) to both tire beads and
rim flanges.
4. Install the tire on the rim from the valve stem side. If there is no tire machine available, use a rubber
mallet and tire iron.
5. Remove the valve core and position the tire so both beads are on the rim flange narrow bead seats.
6. Place the tire and wheel assembly against a wall in an upright position and push it against the
wall while inflating the tire to 30-35 psi (207-242 kPa). The three-point contact (wall, floor, and
hand) will help ensure that beads snap into place and form a proper seal as the tire is inflated
(Figure 8-2, Page 8-4). See following WARNING.
WARNING
• DO NOT USE A COMPRESSED AIR SOURCE WITH PRESSURE OVER 100 PSI (690 KPA). DUE TO
THE LOW PRESSURE REQUIREMENTS OF A SMALL TIRE, OVER-INFLATION COULD BE
REACHED ALMOST INSTANTLY WHEN USING A HIGH PRESSURE AIR SUPPLY. OVER-INFLATION
COULD CAUSE THE TIRE TO EXPLODE, POSSIBLY RESULTING IN PERSONAL INJURY.
