gen 2 leaf inverter teardown/ igbt swap/repair

Post by Bratitude »

i have a collection of gen 2 motors and inverters now.

i recently picked up a blown gen2 inverter, it was missing a phase screw from factory, and drove a few years like this befor the bonding's in the igbts finally blew!

perfect opportunity for a teardown and possible make a good inverter out of 2 dead ones.

another inverter i have has a damaged gate drive board, so the plan is to disorder both the gate drivers, and swap out the bad igbts, new gate driver and should be good to go.

the only way to remove the igbts from the cooling plate is to remove the gate driver, then you can accesses the rest of the cap screws
