Hi there,

I’ve got a (good) question about the Lego Technic Bus I made in 2016 . The question was about the door mechanism and where the motors are placed.

Sadly, I didn’t make any building instructions, or good photos of the mechanical details, so I needed to do some research…

In a failed video, I found a little glimps of the motors for the door mechanism. As you can see, they are placed at the middle part of the bus. So there’s an axle (for the front door mechanism) running from the middle to the front. As you can see, the motor is placed sideways, so somewhere there is a 90 degree bend (with some gears). But I don’t know exactly where…

The motors are connected with an axle and some ‘axle hinges’. Here’s a small instruction I made for the door mechanism. Lego Technic Bus Door Mechanism Instructions (click on the link, then on the picture). Those green pieces are for guiding the door. And of course, they don’t have to be green.. 😛

 

Hopefully this little post clarifies a lot 😉
