Hello there
A friend of mine has a C5 and whilst using it smoke started coming from the motor.

Took the gearbox off yesterday, that looks fine but the motor will not move. Can they be rebuilt? If so how much?

Does anyone have one for sale?

with heat the magnets sometimes detach themselvs from the casing and end up jambing the motor. There's a couple of motors being offered on ebay at the moment.
