I scratch that X because that side must be on the upper site.
When the little black cap goes in the X side must be on the upper site.
This is that the engine when it is in the car goes forward.
When you turn it the cars goes the wrong way.(backwards)

a lot of patience looks to be needed in repairing these.

I drilled the broken contact out and made the missing piece.
Put the contact back and it is working.

Nicely done. Good to have another complete motor. Maybe you should advertise this specialty and get some money for what you do?

Very nice and looks like an easy fix on the charger. The car looks brand now and all in boxes too. Nice.

I was lucky with the last 2 Corgi Electro Cars.
The body was fine with the 2 cars, no work on the bodies for me.
And the last car, no work for me, just a new battery.
