Forum rules


When you put a new thread up in the Workshop please put your car's year and model in the post subject/thread title, along with just a brief indicator of the problem.

Car Year - Car Model: Brief description of issue. EXAMPLE- 1999 9-3. Problems starting when hot.

For Tech II issues or help requests please state the following in your title ''Tech 2 help required - state issue and your location ''.


Please also add as much information as you can about the problem, to your post.

This will help us to help you, without having to ask basic details such as what car you have.


Threads with non-compliant titles will be moved to The Pit Lane (in which no replies can be posted, but the OP can edit the thread - upon which the thread will be released to the workshop forum)

Nb. Generic thread titles for truly generic issues that genuinely are not model or variant specific (such as "how do I change the spring in an forge wastegate actuator") are acceptable

**The first 5 posts for new users require individual moderator approval (which they will only get it if they are in line the rules of the forum). Please be patient and allow time for that to happen, and avoid duplicate postings.**

These brushes...

I have new ones and they are the right size, but I can't see a non-destructive way of removing the old and connecting the new.

I have done this twice :) ... but on a ~MY98 :( AFAIK the part number never changed :) but I can't remember the details :( (note to self, be diligent like Mr Gould and take some pics next time).
IIRC its a snip and solder job. I am not sure if its necessary, but I used some wire "enamel" to insulate the join.

Thanks! :)

I had a go at soldering this evening, and failed. The solder is sort of tacked on and not a fused joint. I'll try again tomorrow. But my soldering iron is not really powerful enough and the length of time it's had to be in contact has caused a bit of the plastic housing to melt. I may play safe and get a new motor.

Will,

Martin JamSaab fitted new brushes to Blackun. I took the blower backoff soon later. I'll dig it out for you if a 2000 one fits!

Thanks Si, I'll check and see. I've got the brushes soldered on and in place, but they seem to be a little bit too long and I can't see how the pressure springs behind them will fit under the retaining clip without grinding the brushes down. I'll have another go tomorrow. I have an idea!! :)

I measured my replacements at 9x8x22mm and on spec for the motor (Siemens M30D). IIRC the plastic cover unscrews and I managed to get a solder mat in behind. Technically I brazed mine as I used silver "solder" and a propane gas torch. Standard PCB type tin solder is at risk of melting if the motor runs very hot (unlikely).

I'll measure mine and see what I have. I hope that the solder melts at a higher temperature than the plastic frame holding the whole thing together! :o

I may be seeing if my proof filing skills still exist... :)

Measured mine at 22mm. Definitely too tight for the spring. More playing tomorrow...

Well, I chickened out and bought a new blower. Arrived this morning and it's all back together.
