Looking inside the Leaf drive unit (Inverter & PDM)

Sat Mar 30, 2019 1:36 am

Not sure if this will be of interest to anyone here, but as this community has been such a great source of information to me, I wanted to give something back.

I have a bunch of videos and pictures that I took as I disassembled the Leaf drive unit I am using in an EV conversion.

I figured i would share these here in case they are of use to anyone.

The drive unit is a 2nd generation one from 2014 with the components in a single stack and the EM57 motor.

The videos of the inverter are here:

And the PDM/Charger are here:

I'll upload the photos in a follow up post. I hope somone out there finds this stuff as fascinating as I have.

That looks like a good candidate for the "Sticky" topic I'm building...

PLEASE don't PM me with Leaf questions. Just post in the topic that seems most appropriate.

It will just consist of (labeled) links to helpful topics. Maybe others will chime in on what videos would be especially helpful.
