    Shaft on window motor came out...are they repairable? (Pix)

    Never really had this happen to me before in the countless times I've had to replace the bushings. You can put the shaft back in the bore, but the hole seems to be just too big (tee hee). Just wondering if this is repairable or of the motor is just good for parts or experimentation.

    I've tried re-staking them, but with the soft pot metal housing and the high torque/side loads on the (worn) shaft it was just a waste of time.

    I'd snag another motor/assembly. Remember there are left and rights.

    Yea, i have few motors in the parts bin. Always have at least one L & R motors refurbed with new bushings in case I need to make the swaps right away.

    Thanks for the input!

    Yeah, they're not worth repairing...once the potmetal gets worn out, it's done!
