Thanks for the advice but I did take the motor out and also disassembled it. The brushes were almost shot and the armature was wearing against the magnets. One thing I found out though was that it is easieer to get it back together if you remove the access plug (located at the top of the gearbox directly above the worm gear shaft). Use a small hacksaw to cut a slot in the top of the wormgear shaft (for some reason it's plastic coated). Then when you insert the shaft into the gear box you can stick a screwdriver into the access hole and turn the wormgear into the gearbox. If you don't do it this way, there is no way to hold the wormgear shaft while inserting it into the gearbox. You have to be able to screw the shaft into the gearbox to get it in the gearbox.
