Headlight motors rebuilt

I did this exact same job three weeks ago.  I couldn't believe how the motors had worked for so long with the powdered rollers in the gears.  Only one of my motors had stopped holding up the pod but the other was full of the same stuff. 

This was actually the easiest job I think I've ever done on the Esprit, everything unbolted with no drama, no injuries and the motors work fine now.  Also put some new rose joints on the push rods and cured most of the pod wobble at the same time, very satisfying.

I see you went for a metal gear wheel.  Did that make any difference to the sound of the motor?  Mine sounds a bit shrill now, although much quicker to pop the pods.
