The mechanic did not mention the possiblity of rewinding them, so I assume they dont do it. ETEC mechanics are few and far between here and so this is really my only reasonably close (35 minutes drive) option. Also, the case would probably need replacing, and I reckon they can probably only get the whole motors here, and not parts for them.....
Your idea of ordering through that guy, if he can get the one I need, sure makes sense. I have just been discussing the idea with SWMBO and there are two main issues, firstly, it may not end up being the motor that is the problem, in which case I'll be blowing an extra $150 to get one from the States and secondly, I may find it too complicated and have to go to a dealer to have it installed. He may well refuse if I bring my own which he will know I have got cheap from the States
mmm what do do.... Looking at it, it looks like it would be simply, 4 screws and joining a coupla wires, but the mechanic said they can be a pain to get the pin out or something (??)
It has conked out in the fully up position. Does anyone know how I go about dropping it a bit to at least rest it on the trailering thingy. Also, based on the photos, can anyone advise me on adding more fluid, or changing fluid - Those two large screws I assume ???
Can see there is an anode in good condition near the motor.
