Toyota RAV4 2009 Wiper motor repair or rebuild


I am new on this Forum and somewhat of a novice on electronics - but into rebuilding cars.

I have a failed windscreen wiper motor for a Toyota RAV4 2009 and have recently taken it apart to discover the brush assembly unit seems to have failed.

Please see attached photos.

My question is the part that circled appears to need a brush connected to it or it may be a sensor.

Can anybody help me identify this as I am still struggling to find the reason why the motor failed apart from brush failure or bearing failure at the bottom of the rotor.

I have since replaced the unit so and it works OK which eliminates the cars Wiper switch gear.

Finally - I canít identify a company in the UK that reconditions these units and will only sell new ones. Also I canít find a parts supplier. The unit is simple to tear down and should be easy to recondition.

I would appreciate any opinions on this

Welcome to the forums from the UK.

Unfortunately there are no companies I know of that rebuild those small motors.
There are just too many small parts to stock and not enough return on investment.

I would go to the local auto recycling yard and get a spare motor

Thanks for responding - I have replaced it from a Breakers Yard but was hoping to fix this just for fun and as a spare.
