  8. I tried to mend it but the lead attaches to the motor under the cap with an eyelet screwed onto the motor When I re soldered the wire to the top of the motor it fell apart so I cannot see how it all fits back. its the small wire from the cap looping into the casing with the black tube.. hence replacement needed £ 150 pounds they want!!!!!
