Are the Globe motors backdriveable?

The Globe motors are amoung the most backdriveable motors in the kit.

Try it with an adjustable wrench.

The only motor that is not backdriveable is the Delphi window motor (unless you count the drill transmissions with the no-back pins still in the transmissions, which by the way you should remove – see DrJoesDrillAdvice in the White Papers section of this web site).

Also, believe it or not, even the window motors can be FORCED to backdrive. But, I do not recommend this as it is only marginally backdriveable and you are more likely to damage the motors.

Hope this helps.
