After fixing many issues on my winch, the only thing left for it to be good is I need new brushes. I disassembled, sanded, greased the switch and contactor. This seemed to fix the interment issues. When I went to take the winch apart. First the bolt for the yellow cable sheared off. Once I got it open it was obvious the brushes were shot. Not only worn but cracked. The motor and rest of the winch is fine. Clean and grease and I'll have no worries about it. The only problem I have is it seems warn doesn't sell just the brushes. They'll sell the entire motor assembly for $130 but not just the brushes. Has anyone come across this before? I'm sure brushes from a car starter would fit if I can find which one. I just rebuilt the starter on my F150 and the old brushes were close but not the same.
