So the Mk10 continues to resist reasonable use, the driver’s side electric motor letting the smoke out of it’s wires yesterday.
I just posted in the classifieds looking for one, and I’m looking for experience or ideas about a repair. The armature windings and one of the field windings appear cooked. BTW, the procedure in the service manual does not have all the steps for removing the electric mechanism and motor! It’s a b&^*^h.
Does anyone know of a reasonable rewinding service if I can’t find one? I’m also wondering about finding a substitute - I already see that XJ doesn’t work. It would take a somewhat shallow rectangular 3 wire motor with forward and reverse and a D shaft about 1/4". The other three motors function, and I can transplant one to the driver’s window until I find another. The other alternative would be to convert to wind-ups.
