Re: Heater Blower Motor

Rather than look for a replacement motor why not look for replacement 
brushes. As a data point, my wife's '84 Jetta GLI's alternator quit this 
last Saturday. Got out the Bentley, pulled the regulator/brushes and 
measured, they were out of spec (very!). Called dealer, naturally they 
wanted to sell me the entire unit ($91). Got a set of brushes from Bow 
Wow ($3.95). Drilled out the old big tails, pulled out brushes, installed 
new, soldered, and hope the alternator lasts another 104+K miles.
