sounds like the iron your using doesnt have enough watts

try some flux then use the iron on the solder

or find a buddy with a hotter iron

is it safe to cut the wires off then solder them to the other side with my own solder? just solder it on to the stuff already on?

Streetracer, you can solder the wires on the back side of the tab but be carefull because its very thin metal on that side...

suggest you solder to outside where the metal tab is thicker....

yes, you can do as you ask , just make sure none of the solder gets on the tab next to it...

i would borrow an iron from a buddy or pick one up

you will end up with bad connections if the solder doesnt get hot enough

mine is older and needs a new tip. and i do need a hotter one. but for now this is all i can use because i dont have the money to get another one. so if i cut the wire right next to the tab and solder it to the other side it will still work fine? i cant afford to mess up this motor and get a new one. i dont have that money.

if its safe to just cut the wires then resolder them to the other side its fien that my iron isnt good right now. and when i get a better one ill redo all of it to make sure it holds.
