Down for the Count

For the past few weeks my transmission has been making noises and I determined that the Input Shaft Bearing was the culprit. So after receiving my transmission rebuild kit my dad and I took apart the EV to get at the transmission.

However, I got a real unpleasant surprise:

As I was pulling the transmission out I saw some wear on the face of the motor. Then I found that coupling to be loose! After pulling it off we found the inner coupling and the motor shaft destroyed. I don't know if it somehow got loose, or it was misaligned, or what but right now I am a real unhappy camper and now on the hunt for a new motor and answers.
