You really don't want a used one unless it is out of an early car as Tony Lum
recently pointed out. (Early 5k's without the automatic climate control don't
eat motors the same way cuz they aren't on as much of the time.) I just went
through this ordeal and the job is not fun...My motor had both the brushes
worn all the way down, and the commutator was very worn as well...so much for
brush replacement ideas. Just get a new one and be done with it...they are
about 125-140 bucks depending where you get 'em. HTH

PS: You can buy a little more time by squirting stuff on the brushes, bending
brush keepers down, etc., but replacement is the real fix.
