B&D Mouse sander brushes?

Does this B&D Mouse Sander MS550G Type 1 have motor brushes? I cannot see anything that looks like a brush or brush holder. The sander slows and stops intermittently. A slight whack will get it going but not at full speed. All the parts sites I found only have external parts and the internal diagrams do not look like mine (no exact model # matches). I have blown out the dust to see if that helps but am looking for brush info to check before I reassemble it to test.



Right side rear view. Hidden side similar.

Right side front view. Hidden side similar.

That looks like a motor that contains non replaceable brushes.
I don't see replaceable brushes listed for that unit.

Yeah. Thanks.

Looking inside at the top, I can see what may be brush springs and they are definitely not replaceable.

After blowing out the dust, I reassembled it and it started right up OK at high speed.
