Help Replacement hood motor/magnet

Hi there all,

I hope someone can help! I have for a long time had to tap my hood cover motor when it stops working but the other day this method stopped working too. I stripped the motor out and down and found that the magnet inside has cracked into several pieces My question is does any one know if/where I can get just the magnet as a spare and failing that, the best place to get a complete replacement motor and what sort of cost it might be?

Thanks guys, summer's here and I don't want to be stuck with my hood up!

hi Guys,

any info on this would bemost interesting, I have in my youth reconditioned a few motors and have been tapping mne more regularly so looking to remove and recondition but not done so yet.

Any previous experience of stripping and rebuilding tese motors would be greatly appreciated.
