    I remember seeing threads about this, but I can't find any. Can anybody give me an education on this? I need to go through them all on my burb. IIRC, it's just replacing the brushes on the motors, right?:dunno:

    window motor

    why screw around with the old window motors when you can get new ones for about $33 dollars at DirectAuto.com ?.

    True, Just replace the bastards, more of a pita to take them apart when you can just slap new ones on. Not unless your into taking apart stuff like that. Then its all you.:xmas:

    I tried it once, but it didn't work any better when I got done. You have to drill out the holes to get it open. I cleaned up the commutator and put new lube in it, but you really need replacement wear parts to rebuild it right (brushes, bushings, etc.) and I'm not sure where you would get them. I ended up get some Seimens motors that came with lifetime warranty.
