the elecrtical contacts are on top of that large round gear
pull the O ring off, white spacer and then the gear off and you will see the printed circuit board on top with the copper fingers that make contact.
The round metal "nub" on the bottom of the gear is where the plastic spacer once lived
I hope you marked the alignment of the case to top before you pulled it apart! Look for the small hash marks
Here are 2 motors, https://postimg.cc/Q9BkBsZD the one on the left was removed from a 2000 ranger this weekend, the one on the right is out of my 98, dont know if it is original but I would assume.
Look down into the cavity, two different castings, the one on the left has a raised area to presumably act as a stop for the knub/pin deal.
The one on the right ( out of my 98 with the black motor housing ) has a plastic insert down in there with half moon cut-outs to accept ( what I am assuming to be complete and not missing a nylon or plastic knub ) the steel pin that I will show in the next picture.
Here is the next picture https://postimg.cc/Kkd7BVmM
Again one on left 2000 ranger and right my 98
The one on left has the familiar plastic or nylon knub over what appears to be a Phillips head machine screw, mine on the right has a steel dowel that appears identical in size to mate with the plastic/nylon female receptacle down in my housing that I showed in previous pict.
Moving on lets talk about how to access the contacts......https://postimg.cc/0KDYffNH
As you can see I have taken a screwdriver and have chipped away at the edge of the housing, as I hope you can see in the next couple of pict I dont see how to access anything inside as far as contacts, yes the base is a separate piece but because of its conical shape the only real way that I can see it being removed without being destroyed would be thru the top and yet I dont see that as possible either so can someone tell me how to open this thing up properly?
Thoughts, comments, suggestions welcome.
