If you have not physically burned up the motor, the failure is a very
cheap bearing. You can get one at any electric motor rebuilder shop - and
I suggest anyone who wants to avoid paying the $400+ dollars for a new
motor replace this part before it fails. Is pretty easy to do.
even found some brushes that fit. I think this motor works out to around 1
horse power - a lot!
 I also found that a fan from an older Chevy
truck physically fits, but it is only about half the power of the Audi
unit. As I recall, the brush holder from the Chevy fan fit the housing for
the Audi, and I was able to rebuild my burned up motor for cheap. If the
rotor is burned you are "toast" though.
