How Do I Lubricate The Front End of My Ezgo Txt Golf Cart?

How Do I Lubricate The Front End of My Ezgo Txt Golf Cart?

How Do I Lubricate The Front End of My Ezgo Txt Golf Cart? That’s a question we are asked from time to time at our dealership. Depending on your year model there are not very many lubrication points for anyone to lubricate. If your Txt is a year model from 1994 to roughly 2001 then you could have as many as five places to lubricate which all are within the steering box to tie rod ends.

Things to do when you need to tow a malfunctioning golf cart.

We all love to use our golf carts when they work. Unfortunately there are times that they decide it’s quitting time and that they need a break. These times seldom ever happen at a convenient time. You know, like in your garage or at the cart barn. Yeah, like that'll ever happen.

The golf cart will usually break down during usage whether out on the back nine or while your kids have it down at the community center swimming in the pool. What do we do now?

Why did my golf cart battery terminal melt? Why isn’t this a warranty issue?

I own and operate a golf cart dealership with two locations.
