I think the only motors with replacable magnets was the trinity D4 series cans.

It is physically possible to remove the magnets and replace them with new ones. That said its probably sheaper to buy a new can.

The magnets in these motors are epoxied in with a special epoxy that is very thin so I wouldn't recommend trying to replace the magnets as thay are so far from the armarture.

PC-7(like jb weld) epoxy works very well when sticking magnets back in. You only need a very thin scape, too much and it will screw up the spacing between the magnets and the arm. Just get somebody to zap your magnets.

To remove the magnets, the can has to be heated up so the glue lets go. This is how I think they come loose anyhow. I think it can be put in the oven Maybe 350?

To glue them in, clean the can and magnet. Scrape all the old glue off. You can and use JB weld. I wrap the arm with a paper towel so it is a little fatter and cram it into the can with magnets. It keeps the magnets in place till the JB dries.

Make sure you get them oriented right.

What are you going to change the magnets from and to?

If they are glued in, just get em zapped.
